The sky may dreary but the streets of Dublin are filled with colour this season. It looks like winter wear this year is all about flamboyance but with a hint of Parisian chic. The people of Dublin seem to be ditching the obvious all black ensembles for something with a bit more vibrance and spirit!
One thing The City noticed was that coats are definitely the main fashion statement of the season, a great stand-out coat will win you compliments and glances as well as keeping yourself warm. So make sure you invest in a good warm winter coat, the people of Dublin favoured the duffel coat, the wool coat, the parka jacket, leather coats and of course the denim jacket if you’re willing to brace the breeze!
Another fashion must this year is a good woolly jumper… yes your mother’s old geansaí is actually a fashion statement this season! From what The City could gather, the more crazy and wacky the better. The Christmas jumper is a season favourite but if you’re feeling a little shy this year why not try a cute fairisle jumper to ensure you look festive this season.
So don’t let the gloom of the weather outside get your wardrobe spirits down, spice it up a little this year… oh the weather outside is frightful but the fashion it’s so delightful!
The City took to the streets of Dublin and asked them ‘What is your fashion must-have this season?’
