Freeze in style

I realized I hadn't done such a post in a long time. I always enjoy putting themed outfits together, whether it's for a special occasion or simply a certain time of the year. This time it's winter themed outfits - made to help you face the cold weather in style!

The Princess

1. Alexander McQueen - £7,988 | 2. Olympia Le-Tan - £867 | 3. Charlotte Olympia - £496 | 4. Maison Michel - £379 | Wolford - £17

As you know, I always make several outfits matching different styles and personalities. The first one is for the princess - a girl who loves mixing white and pink, a girl who loves to inject whimsicality in her outfits to look even dreamier. The outfit is consisted of a white coat with fur collar, lady-like pumps, white fur earmuffs and a book clutch with a floral cover for an interesting statement.

The Edgy Girl

1. Versace - £371 | 2. Haider Ackermann - £2,192 | 3. Versus - £725 | 4. Pierre Hardy - £588 | 5. Valentino - £1,025 | 6. Gucci - £271

The second outfit is for the edgy girl. A girl who loves her leather pieces and tries to insert as many leather pieces as possible to toughen up her look. However the edgy girl doesn't always have to wear black - that is why I tried to inject some color in the outfit via the bright pink clutch (still studded though), burgundy pants and ink blue panels on her shoes. 

The Classic Lady

1. Yves Saint Laurent - £1,821 | 2. Lanvin - £1,012 | 3. Jason Wu - £554 | 4. Miu Miu - £400 | 5. Kotur - £258 

The classic lady likes to stay true to the standards of beauty - two to three colors in her outfit, nothing too risky and nothing too trendy. However this winter I suggest a black cape with leather edges instead of the classic coat, a black shirt with sheer sleeves and gold panels on the collar and shoes in burgundy, navy or purple with sequined soles for a little playfulness. 

The Tomboy

1. Balmain - £979 | 2. Altuzarra - £1,812  | 3. Burberry Prorsum - £1,088 | 4. Burberry Prorsum - £700 | 5. Proenza Schouler - £429 | 6. Lanvin - £350

The tomboy is a complete opposite from the lady - she likes to dress casually, wearing mostly jeans, sweaters and hard boots. This season's hit - the parka, is perfect for this type of girl. Wear it with a quirky printed sweater, winter ankle boots and a cute knitted hat with a fur beanie for a casual but yet polished statement. 

You can find all the outfits used on Net-a-porter. However, for those with a much lower budget and all the young girls out there I would suggest you shop pieces similar to these in stores like H&M, Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Asos or Topshop. That way you would be dressed head-to-toe in style with much less money!

Which outfit is your favorite?

I love this, your blog is amazing! I think I prefer 'The Princess' style that Alexander McQueen coat! Should be on my wishlist but with practically an £8,000 price tag I doubt Santa will get it ;) <3
