Youngsters opt for 70s style this winter

There’s a nip in the air and in another week or so, the temperatures will continue to dip. It’s the season of curling up in your bed with a hot cuppa and a romantic novel.

But you can’t always do that because there’s office and college to attend. For those who need to step out everyday, doing so with style is the norm. Bring out those oversized sweaters and fuzzy scarves to amp up your look. Pune Times brings you a handy guide on what to wear:

Layering is important
What you pair with your jeans or leggings matters. Stock up the sheer shirts and lace crop tops for warmer days and get some layers on. “Pair your well-fitted cardigan with your favourite pair of jeans. Adding a jacket, trendy hat or a woollen scarf will not only help in keeping warm but will give you a smart look,” said Sejal Tembwalkar, a fashion design student.

Boot it
Thigh-high and calf-length boots instantly up your style quotient, feels fashion designer Mubaraka Kuvawala. Adding to that, fashion enthusiast Snehal Shah said, “Boots keep your feet warm and are a great accessory too. They can be counted as a fashion basic for winters.”

The 70s are back!
Take a look at the 70s style trends and imitate them this season, says Mubaraka. “The 70s look is in this season. Flared dresses and maxis paired with long-sleeved inners are definitely a must. Not only do they look stylish, the length of the clothing will also keep you warm,” she added. Mubaraka also suggested turtle and polo necks. “Turtle necks and polo necks have made a comeback. So have ponchos. The emphasis in the current season is on over-sized clothing that looks classy and provides warmth,” she avered.

Leather Jackets with a twist
Mubaraka added that the quilted jackets from last year are still trending this year, adding, “And so are the fleece ones.” Fashion design student Vaishnavi Rajput suggested leather jackets in dark colours for men as well as women this winter. “Printed cardigans too can be worn by men but they need to be paired with well-fitted trousers and a plain shirt underneath,” Vaishanavi said.
