Get it while it’s hot, to get you through the cold

It’s hard to make your winter wardrobe exciting when your main focus is to keep warm. So when I find items that entice me (and keep me warm!), I feel it’s a reason to celebrate and share my finds – so we can all #SLAY this winter.

Keep these key areas covered with the trendy items below, and you’re #golden, fam.

Six winter must-haves to cover your ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes’ stylishly:

#1 Head: army hat

Reason: A fresh spin on the classic biker jacket (hello, silver!) – I’m obsessed! Metallics are a great way to breath new life into your look. And it’s perfect for a night out on the town or dinner date, or even a sharp outfit for work = versatile!

Where: H&M

Price: R99

Reason: Coming from a girl who never used to wear earrings, overstated is the new understated. Your earlobes might be afraid, but you shouldn’t be. This new chunky trend is here to stay.

Also, forget about your mouth and nose – they can freeze.
