If there’s one thing you need to invest in this winter it’s a killer coat. Shop online in the US and get out-there with your outerwear while saving a few bucks while you’re at it. We’re besotted with this Abigail Belted Waterfall Coat which will add an element of sophistication to any outfit. If you’re a festival regular then this Ellie Floral Hooded Festival Rain Mac is a no-brainer this winter – it’ll keep you dry and looking oh-so-pretty at the same time!
Give winter the boot:
Price: $15 (R200).
If you live in rainy Cape Town then a new pair of rain boots is an absolute must. We love these blue Mock Sherpa Cuff Duck boots because not only will they keep your feet as dry as a dessert but they’ll also upgrade any outfit to oh-so-cute status. Splash through puddles with total comfort in this cozy duck boot with a vegan leather calf and rubberized toe.
Stay warm in comfy knits:
Price: Black striped v-neck sweater – $12.99 (R175) | Blue loose-fitting sweater – $7.00 (R95).
These gorgeous knit sweaters are stylish yet cosy and super soft. Either one of them would make the perfect addition to any winter wardrobe and would look just as stunning stylish with jeans and high heels than with leggings and boots.
Winter in the bag:
Price: $9.99 (R150).
What is a new winter wardrobe without a new handbag? Of course, winter calls for a bigger handbag as you’ll be lugging far more stuff around with you. We love these sophisticated hobo bags – they’re roomy and made from slouchy vegan leather and are ultra stylish to boot.
