Even if the weather has been quite warm these days, long winter nights are coming and we will soon feel the need to wrap up in warm and comfy clothes, like a flannelette jumper or a polyester onesie. But if those fabrics are undoubtedly the comfiest for winter, they are certainly not the sexiest. Do you know which fabrics are both comfy and sexy to wear the season? Those ones…
The advantage of jean is that you can wear it all year round. It never goes out of style, and can be worn with anything, and this is why you absolutely need it in your wardrobe! This winter, it is an integral part of our warm and comfy looks. For example, you can wear the Wanted Gina jean shirt with quilted leather collar with a stretch black slim, and pair of sneakers and Les Partisanes’ jean and rose gold watch. For a more feminine outfit, go for the Angéline Dangelser denim ruffled dress that you can wear with a wool biker jacket by Olivier Battino and a serrated headband strass Swarovski by Cécile Boccara.
It is soft, warm and elegant. We are talking about velvet, which is doing an unexpected come back into the fashion world! In small strokes or in a total look, it gives a posh touch to any outfit. It especially looks good on dark colours, like black, burgundy or navy blue. Quite old school, velvet is the ideal fabric for a retro look, and perfectly fits the seventies trend. For example, you can wear the Lord SM velvet and sequins top with flare pants, one of this season’s must have. For a modern look, go for the Emy Rigeot leather and velvet dress that you can wear with a short chain necklace by Isabelle Michel and a colourful purse like the leather and raffia clutch bag by Otinguema. We also love velvet in small strokes like on the embroided and velvet jacket by Armace Rotceig that you can wear with jeans and a plain tee.
Any woman who’s sensitive to cold absolutely loves wool. But it has to be chosen wisely; if it can modernize an outfit, it can also give it a granny look that you don’t want. If mountain style loose-knit jumpers are reserved for Sundays in pyjamas by the fireplace, it is possible to be stylish in a total wool look. With tight pants and lined boots, you can for example wear an oversize wool cardigan like the Otinguema bicoloured cardigan or the Tessa Delpech wool and leather cardigan (a classic). This winter will also be marked by the wooden dresses trend. With a pair of black thigh boots, you can for example wear the turtleneck wood-blend dress by Yuhan Pu or the very sexy wool inserts dress by Otinguema. And to be warm up to the neck, swap your necklaces for a Denovembre wool scarf. We told you, it is easy being stylish in a total wool look!
Just like jean, leather is a fabric that has a special place in our wardrobe all year long. It never goes out of style, and fits every single trend of the year, from the grunge inspired outfit to seventies or the officer look. Even if leather is super trendy, do not wear leather in a total look, but on one or two items. For example, with a silk top, wear the Bibana Paris leather biker jacket with the matching Bibana Paris short padded leather skirt or the Armance Rotceig short blue leather skirt. For the most audacious ones of you, you can even go for VV’s total leather tops and dresses! If you don’t feel comfy in leather, fall for a leather jewel or bag, like a Camille Roussel tricolor leather bracelet or a quilted leather tot bag by Bleecker Blues.
