The first look is Arctic Fur which is all about rustic glam. Think Swiss ski cabin, cosy log fireplaces, glühwein and relaxed weekends! Yes, the look is appealing, cosy and warm.
Stick to camel tones and tans to create a more sophisticated feel. Be sure to add texture to keep it from looking flat and dull.

A statement bag makes all the difference, this bucket bag from local designer, Thalia Strates, is a winner.

Monochromatic Edge is the second look and has a younger, more sporty feel. The monochromatic palette keeps it fresh and of course the Nike trainers add that street style. This look is perfect for a weekend of running around and being on the go.
Invest in a black leather “biker type” jacket. This is a great item for dressing your look down. Choose a style that fits well and is comfortable.
