After much anticipation, winter is finally upon us. The cooler weather means a whole lot of outdoor activities, gatherings, events and parties. At times, switching over to a warmer wardrobe can get a little overwhelming as most of us have gotten so accustomed to reaching for out breezy summer dresses and lightweight summery pieces that we have almost forgotten how to layer pieces for that effortlessly balanced look that perfectly merges comfort and style.
To demonstrate just how you can dress this winter, we felt it was best that we let some of our most stylish regional influencers showcase how they like to style their go-to winter pieces to keep warm. Former Harper’s BAZAAR Arabia cover star Jessica Kahawaty reaches for the ultimate winter essential: the cozy sweater, whilst Iraqi influencer Rania Fawaz opts for on-trend, menswear-inspired leather trousers. Whatever your style, scroll down and let the regional fashionistas inspire your way to your chicest winter wardrobe yet.
