May 12, 2015

The arrival of blistering winds, bucketing rain and the enveloping cold used to herald the decline of my sartorial mojo. My Croatian roots and a flexible, freelance job gave me the luxury of becoming summer’s tireless pilgrim for over 20 years  - since my modelling days and beyond, I swapped hemispheres whenever winter took over season’s reins – owning a coat was unnecessary, boots a frivolity that would only weigh down my already overweight suitcase.

Oh how things change! My daughter’s education has meant I needed to stay put for longer, so my winter wardrobe went from a population of a single pair of Ugg boots and a holey oversized sweater to stylish key winter pieces and expert layering. Nowadays, I get excited when direction of the wind changes announcing a different season - dressing for cooler weather is infinitely more fun with it’s cosy coats, sleek pants and soft sweaters in endless combinations.

For this story, I paired up with Tommy Hilfigher to curate and demystify some of this season’s trends in an urban and wearable way.

This winter choose beige and brown tones across suede materials for an updated take on the 70s trend. Don’t forget to accessorise with mirrored aviators, textured jackets and pops of snakeskin ( Tommy Hilfigher shirt and pants, Aquazurra shoes, Marimekko coat, Max Mara bag, Miu Miu sunglasses )

Black is always back in winter. Pair sleek stovepipe pants and an unbuttoned shirt with your favourite ankle boots and a mannish car coat for a look that means business ( Tommy Hilfigher shirt, pants and coat, Balmain booties, Tiffany & Co Smile necklace )

The arrival of winter shouldn’t mean the banishment of colour. Choose a soft, cashmere, cable knitted sweater in a pop of bright hue to brighten long overcast days.
