From fuzzy hats, to moon boots and trench coats, I can’t wait to explore the exciting Winter Fashion Trends 2022.

Are you ready to revamp your wardrobe? Keep on reading 🙌🏻

1. 90’s Denim

Denim came back in trend a while ago. However, this year the big fashion houses have stopped trying to adapt jeans for today and have started releasing 90’s jeans instead.

It’s such a must have this winter. Denim jeans can be styled for many looks. You can be stylish, trashy or even classy. It’s all about how you want to accessorise your outfit.

A cool styling idea for 90’s jeans is to get a fur coat on top. Not only will you become Carrie Bradshaw for a day, but you’ll feel like a true New Yorker in a hurry. Fashionable, yet cosy! 😉

2. Geometric shapes

Triangles, squares, rectangles and alternative lines. These are just some of the geometric shapes that are part of Winter Fashion Trends 2022. We’ve noticed that this year, many designers are opting for prints showing geometric shapes. These prints are placed on t-shirts, jeans, shirts, but most often on jackets be it long coats or trench coats.

You will feel creative, fashionable and different! I think that’s the main reason why I love this trend.

You can wear geometric prints in absolutely any circumstance and you will absolutely have confidence that you’re fashionable!

3. Glam it up

Feathers, fringe, pearls, diamonds and chains. These are just a few of the accessories you can find on dresses and garments. Glam is back. Get ready to tackle plenty of extravagant and eccentric outfits, because 2022 is the perfect year. Both high end and low end brands are adapting! We can find lace, satin, corset and sequin dresses among the hangers. Who knows?

The point is, it’s time to prepare your wardrobe for the upcoming events! Do you already know what you’re wearing for New Year’s Eve? 😉

4. Faux Leather

From trousers to vests, dresses and jackets, leather garments are an absolute Winter Fashion Trend 2022. The thing I love most when it comes to clothing pieces made from leather is the attitude they help you adopt. I suppose everyone feels like they can achieve anything when they wear faux leather. Besides, when you add leather to your outfit you will give it an expensive and very stylish look. Isn’t that amazing?

5. Office Wear

I suppose this trend came about because of people who simply want to dress up and go back to work. I love how all women have started wearing men’s suits and adapting them for their tastes and needs. Thus, suits in 2022 are sexy, empowering and more. Are you ready to rock this years fashion trends in high heels and sexy suits? Well, I for one am and trust me when I say that I can’t wait to finally dress office again!

All things considered, this Winter has many trends prepared for us. Which one is your absolute favourite? I can’t wait to hear all of your answers in my Instagram DM’s ( @notagirlygal ).

Until next time,

How to wear Winter perfume? It might be just a little different than how you would wear a Summer or Spring fragrance. A stronger scent requires you to wear a certain outfit. Plus, it definitely calls for a change in the way that you spray it. Stay until the end to find out how to enter my EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY. Get the chance to win a Calvin Klein Everyone Eau de Toilette. Share it with someone you love or keep it for yourself this Christmas.

Winter perfumes tend to be stronger and have a better longevity than floral fragrances for instance. Also, you might want to consider your outfit choices when you’re wearing them. The scent of fabrics such as wool combine in a very interesting way with the various elements of your perfume.

Choosing fragrances in Winter

As the weather gets colder, your skin will not reach a high temperature. Therefore, considering fragrances which have musk, bergamot, oud or vanilla as top or middle notes might be your best bet. Furthermore, these notes are a few of my favourites as well; gorgeous choices that include them would be: Tom Ford, Kenzo, Givenchy, Chanel or Amouage.

Considering fragrances which have musk, bergamot, oud or vanilla as top or middle notes might be your best bet.

Also, a very interesting observation is that different fabrics have a smell of their own. Have you noticed how wool smells like? Now, pick a wool jumper and spray perfume on your wrist. Do you notice any difference in how the perfume wears?

Where to apply your winter perfume?

First of all, since the scent would be stronger, you’d have to limit yourself to just a few spots on your body when applying your winter perfume. With this in mind, I’ve noticed that my fragrance lasts longer when I spray it on my neck (where my pulse it), wrists and behind my neck. Under no circumstance you should spray perfume on your clothes. Chances are that your garments would get stained (usually a yellow stain) and look greasy. Also, that’s not a great look and you won’t want to throw clothes away.

Winter Perfume – Do’s and Don’ts

Do’s

1. Invest in quality fragrances.

2. Consider your attitude when wearing stronger scents.

3. Wear your perfume in perfect harmony with your look.

Dont’s

1. Don’t spray perfume on your clothes.

2. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new fragrances in winter.

3. Don’t let the perfume wear you.

About the Calvin Klein Everyone GIVEAWAY

As part of my ‘Jet Set Lifestyle’ Giveaway I’m giving away one Calvin Klein Everyone Eau de Toilette to one lucky winner. It might be YOU 👀

All you have to do is enter on my Instagram post here.

About the fragrance.

Citric, pure and clear , the Eau de Toilette Spray CK Everyone by Calvin Klein is a multifaceted ode to pure joie de vivre. The fragrance was explicitly designed as a unisex version and is therefore equally suitable for men and women. The top note of organic orange oil and spicy ginger paves the way for the fascinating heart note. Unique chords of blue tea are combined with fresh aquatic notes. Finally, the base of patchouli, ambergris and cedar wood sets new accents and perfectly rounds off the wonderfully fresh fragrance experience.

Lots of love,

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hello there,

If you’re in the hunt for really warm clothes and you believe puffer jackets are the only solution to the current situation, layering can really come in handy if you don’t like feeling wrapped up every single day. There are no big news here as you probably layer your outfits already without necessarily realising you do so. Keen to switch the usual ‘winter jacket’ for a cooler alternative, I began researching ways of dressing appropriately for winter. What can I do differently to change the way I’m creating my outfits to fit my current needs? Today, I’m happy to share with you my proved and effective layering strategy for the coldest months of the year.

First step: Tops tops tops

Mention the word basic top and I will be the first one to say: I need more! As basic as they are and as easy to find they are, I am currently having only six or seven to use for layering. I found it really useful to own basic tops in different colours based on the shirt colour to be added to it. I feel that a black top should not be mixed with a white shirt as it will look really tacky – it’s similar to matching the underwear to the clothes you’re wearing. There’s nothing more disgraceful than a black bra underneath a white shirt. I like my tops in black, white, pale pink, and nude as I have quite a lot of shirts / blouses from that colour palette. Add as many different colours as you like based on your wardrobe colour range. You will instantly see the difference in the final look.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hot Tip: So, as you probably guessed, the first step is getting your tops to match the shirts’ colours.

Second step: Shirts & Bottoms

Depending on the outside temperature, you can choose between a full-length arm shirt or a T-shirt. The beauty of layering is that you don’t have to pack your wardrobe with jumpers as a top and a shirt will do the job if the third layer is done right.

You can choose between a pair of pants or a skirt. If you choose a skirt, pick a pair of winter tights. I usually wear pants, but there are some exceptions of course.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hot Tip: Go for cool designs in your tops. A printed logo T-shirt, a lace blouse or a stripped shirt will do miracles to your outfit. Details always make the difference between a boring and a “wow” outfit. Bring your inner artist to the game!

Step number three: Blazers and Cardigans

If there are two things I LOVE to have in my wardrobe, they would be blazers and fellow cardigans. I call them fellow as they’re comfy and always there to help you feel warm & ready to fight the cold weather. After all, they are probably the most important layer of all (closely competing with tops). Be consistent with your colour scheme: three or four colours per outfit should be enough to create a well put-together outfit. Any outfit made out of more than four colours will make you look sloppy.

The 2018 Way to Effectively Layer Your Clothes

Hot Tip: Choose a wool blended cardigan / winter blazer to go on top of your shirts. Be careful not to use more than three – four colours overall when putting together the outfit.

Step Four: The Winter Jacket

An ultimate layer to your outfit would be the beloved (or not) winter jacket. Make sure it has a wool blend to keep you warm. There’s no harm in having two or three winter jackets in different styles and colours to complement your outfits.

Hot Tip: Choose wool blended jackets that come in different lengths & styles. You can adjust one winter coat to the length of your skirt, so the latter is not longer than the former. 

Optional Step for BOLD girls: Statement Accessory 

An accessory won’t make you bolder but it can help you express your strong personality. As  designer Michael Halpern said Right now, people need fantasy from fashion. I believe his remark is 100% true as it perhaps relates to the concept of people loving story telling. The more you create stories around your outfit, the more empowered you will feel. My go-to accessory for the month is this green beret that I’ve been wearing quite a lot.

Hot Tip: Embrace statement accessories and wear them with the confidence you have in you.

Psst: Don’t forget about your winter boots.
