Unlike the other parts of South Africa, cold & rainy wintery days are rare in Durban. Collectively, throughout the 3 Winter months, we probably experience about a week or 2 of true Winter.
To ensure that I’m prepared for our very short Winter, I always have a few go-to outfits on hand.
I tend to steer away from the usual jacket-jeans-tee combo and try to be more creative when it comes to my winter looks.
Hopefully, over the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing with you guys my other winter looks but for today we’ll stick to my monochromic winter look.
Fluffy/fleecy jersey, cardigans and knits is all the rage for this winter. You can pair it with a skirt, dress or over jeans which makes it uber versatile and a great investment.
I find that either a black fleecy jersey or a white one will be great choice due to it’s ability to work with almost any other colour.
The one that I’m wearing is in a size bigger than my normal size hence the oversized look – as I said in my previous ootd, I’m really into the whole oversized look this season.
I paired the jersey with this really cute tee that I purchased a while ago but never really got a chance to feature on the blog. I always find myself drawn to sweaters/shirts/tops that feature city names, I’m not sure why but I find it really cool and chic.
I have been coveting a pair of ankle boots for the past 2 years however I couldn’t find the perfect pair – and I finally did. I wanted a boot that had buckles and cutouts, that wasn’t too big and bulky around my skinny ankles and a boot that could be worn in all 4seasons and not just in Winter – and this particular pair ticked all of the above boxes for me.
For my accessories, I kept it really simple. I wanted to add a bit of colour to the look, so I opted for this really cute studded, floral envelope clutch. This pair of black skinny’s and my black pashmina really pulled the whole look together and helped to achieve this monochromatic winter look.
