I have been frustrated with the concrete jungle called Johannesburg lately, it seems that everyone is styled by tumblr and we are cool with looking the same.The internet has been a great place to be inspired by fashion from around the world but at the same time its important for us to form our own identity and create our own ways. For winter I am looking to inspire you to try new ways of dressing and styling yourself. It starts today!

Autumn is here and winter will be following soon, what I love about Johannesburg winter is that its never too cold so theres no need for heavy heavy winter coats! We have partnered with Stuttafords to bring you the essentials for winter and how to style them.

First up is Denim, the key pieces to have are denim shirts, jackets , ripped jeans and dungarees. When it comes to winter denim its very important that you infuse other textures to add more depth. In this editorial I used a group of my friends who all have unique styles and we styled them in a unique denim look.

Some Tips For Winter Denim :

• Denim on denim is great but can get very boring always ADD texture. ie : Varsity jacket or knit

• When it comes to denim sneakers are a good choice but if you want to give it a more tailored look wear some boots or brogues

• Don’t mix different shades of denim, its too overwhelming.
• Try white denim jeans, they can go really well with a shirt and blazer especially for the office.DSC_2199DSC_2202DSC_2227DSC_2354
