Cold Chic: Hot Winter Fashion

HerCanberra Team

Baby, it’s cold outside…but the fashion is hot. This season sees ladylike luxe take centre stage, with touches of metallics and leather giving the feminine look some grit. Reminiscent of mid-century Style Icons like Grace Kelly and Jackie Onassis, the ladylike trend plays with midi-length skirts and cinched waists – this look is all about fitted, functional clothing that will show off your shape, whatever that may be. Heat things up with these fab fashions from Mussen

A bit of sparkle never hurt anyone, and Metallics is probably the easiest trend to follow if you’re on a budget. Try a metallic pencil skirt like our model Brodie, or add a metallic belt or a glo-mesh bag to your outfit for the fastest way to feel a bit fancy on those drizzly winter nights.

Embrace the old style glamour with Hollywood waves, but give your look edge with your makeup. Brodie wears the ‘ombre lip’ – three different lip shades (red in the middle graduating to a plum colour towards the corners and a near-black shade at the edges of her mouth) – teamed with a classic winged eyeliner. Keep the rest of the makeup minimal as you want the focus to be the lips. The step by step tutorial on achieving this makeup look will soon be available on www.enhanceyou.tumblr.com

The look also works for day, with a classic monochromatic palette creating a striking silhouette.
