1. Top-to-bottom White
Get ready for a fresh start after experiencing lockdowns. What better way than to go all white from head-to-toe? The freshness and cleanliness the color evokes is timely for a post-quarantine debut into society. Make a statement in an all-white ensemble whether it be a full length knitted dress or in layers.
Wearing a monochromatic color from head to toe gives an illusion of length. It’s the easiest way to look taller or slimmer instantly. Aside from the optical illusion it gives, white is a neutral color that can be worn with any skin tone and it is easy to accessorize.

This classic jacket style is gaining traction this season. It may already be a staple in your winter wardrobe but if it is not, then it’s about time to get one. It is one of the best pieces to help keep you warm through the cold winter days. The best thing about it is that it is lightweight.

Take your pick to go with your personality and style.
Tailored clothing this season is all about layers on layers. Tailored coats, blouses, vests or pants. The tailored look brings about sophistication and class. Tailored pieces show precision and care for details. There are so many ways to wear this look - like wearing a blouse over a turtleneck and pairing it with a tailored coat and pants.
