Just like summer bodies are made in winter, the best winter fashion prices are in summer. So now is the time to start shopping for all your winter must-haves.

Winter Fashion

This winter, switch things up and add some character to your personal taste. Try out different textures, patterns, colours or colour blocking (this works with the right combination). Don't be afraid to push the boundaries or just simply break the rules.

Fashion is a form of expression, a sense of freedom and a way of telling the world about yourself.

Pattern Designs And Textures

Pattern designs have been coming and going and have inspired new trends. This is why traditional patterns, like polka dots and stripes, are the perfect go-to. They are timeless and never go out of style.

Don't shy away from playing around with ideas - an ankle high chino, polka dot top and tiny scarf go a long way. Gentlemen, you can also rock pattern designs and textures with confidence, just choose items that complements each other.

Quick tip: Pattern designs aren't just about clothes - think shoes and accessories, too.
