Travel Winter Fashion Essentials

I’m definitely a winter person. In fact, I believe that we can have more wardrobe fun during the cooler months; especially with layering. It’s all about finding the right outfit ideas that will have you looking fashionable yet help you feel warm all season long. The most important thing about learning to layer is getting a very good handle on the must-haves of the season. From the perfect cozy knit to the slouchy leather pants to the oversize coat and more, let’s go through the top 5 essentials of the season. These will take your layered looks to the next level.

1.    The Perfect Knit: While knitwear could seem like less than a fashion trend and more like a wardrobe staple, it’s important to know how to style your knits to ensure you wear them with style. For a modern and minimalist look, you could style your over-sized white knit with wide-leg trousers and heeled ankle boots. For a more colorful look, you could go for a jewel-tone (emerald for example) knit jumper and wear it with your favorite skinny jeans and a huge scarf. You can basically pull it off with everything you’ve got hiding your closets!

2.    The Slouchy Leather Pants: all rules have changed! Forget about the super tight leather pants, this season, it’s all about the comfortable, loose and sporty leather pants. I love styling them with black heels, a simple top/black polo neck, a tailored blazer and minimal jewelry. It’s all about keeping the androgynous orientation.

3.    The Oversized Coat: these coats are on the rise! While they’ve been in trend for a while already, this winter, these jackets looks slightly more fitted. When styling yours, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit fitted, play with proportions and style it with shorts or little skirts, wear heels to lengthen your silhouette and add statement accessories.

4.    The Beanie: definitely the coolest thing you can wear this winter. While it stayed for years the item that children despised wearing at school, it’s now the hit item. It’s just perfect how fashion keeps on turning towards comfortable, “keeping-us-warm” trends.

5.    The Flat Ankle Boots: whatever your style, there will always be a pair you love. They’re a necessity for any winter wardrobe and this season, they’re definitely looking better than ever. Wear them to work or dress up your weekend looks, they’re just so stylish and versatile.

    First of all, I want to say that I really love your blog so far. I’ve always wanted to start a blog but I’ve never known how. I am afraid of taking risks, but you are so generous in your tips and guidance that I’ve finally taken up the courage to seriously put my foot in the business world. My biggest struggle is fear that I won’t have good content and I won’t be successful. But I’ll overcome it. I have a real passion for helping people and I think that will really drive me to do my best. I’m really shy, but I can open up with kind and genuine people. Thank you for being just that.

      Thank you so much for your kind words, I’m always afraid, everyday when I post, travel, take photos. It is completely normal and I think it’s a good thing because that encourages our passion drive to go further and further! Best of luck and thank you for reading! x

  • From where I drone 🚁 - Beautiful Mauritius 🇲🇺
  • My childhood friend of 30 years took this picture of me last week when we drove to Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. We’ve been friends for so long I can’t remember which one of us is the bad influence 😂. It was so random because she kept on insisting that I don’t turn away from the camera and I couldn’t stop laughing before a bee almost attacked me!! So there you go. Happy Tuesday 🇱🇧♥️
  • Ever been to Croatia? What does this place reminds you of?
  • I had a chance to get away into Bekaa Valley. From the 1st century BC, when the region was part of the Roman Empire, the Beqaa Valley served as a source of grain for the Roman provinces. I took Chloè and stayed in a lovely cozy guest house called @al_haush and explored the fields of crops and vineyards. 🇱🇧 I’m so in love with Lebanon 🇱🇧
  • I found this little lake by mistake on the way to Bekaa Valley. I was surprised given that it was in the middle of nowhere and the water was blue and cold! Where would you suggest I explore more in Lebanon? 🇱🇧 #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Some of the greatest sky colors I’ve seen were in Portugal 🇵🇹 Sunset views from @avanilisbonhotel ♥️

  • The ancient Phoenician wall in Batroun , Lebanon between (3,300 B.C. to 64 B.C.)
Batroun was once one of the most important Phoenician cities in the region and is one of the oldest cities in the world! It is by far, one of my favorite places in Lebanon 🇱🇧
It was super windy that day but I managed to get few shots on my drone until the battery ran out on me while flying!!! I honestly have no idea how it just landed inside the church walls on its own and not in the water!! 😊
  • Faqra ruins, an archaeological site in Kfardebian, Lebanon, with Roman and Byzantine ruins. It’s one of the most important sites of the UNESCO sites. 🇱🇧 I didn’t know which picture to share so I posted both 😊
