Style influencer Siphokazi Veti gives us advice on how to style your favourite denim pieces for a look that’s winter fresh.
Denim for winter? How original, you may be thinking. But when style and body-positive activist and influencer Siphokazi Veti lets you in on her best styling tips, you’ll be rethinking your denim strategy for the new season.

1. Add a Killer Accessory

A pair of jeans and a sweater is a go-to, easy-to-pull-off look for winter, but it can get boring day after day. Add the trendy moon bag to your ensemble and you will instantly see an upgrade. Then finish off with a pair of heels, and viola, your look strikes the perfect balance of sophisticated and cool.

2. Embrace stripes

Denim and a white T-shirt is a fashion staple so classic no wardrobe goes without it. Take this timeless look and throw some stripes into the mix to make it more now. A stripe down the side of the shirt is understated and cool. Then add a pair of statement boots, and you’re done.

3. Layer like a queen

Layering is an art. It can be tricky to get just right but is essential for trans-seasonal dressing. What you need to do is start with the base layers, which need to be the thinnest, and then pile on according to thickness. To get the balance right and to avoid looking too bulky and sloppy, make sure you mix tight with loose. Go for tight-fitting jeans and a comfy pair of ankle boots to complete the look.

4. Keep it casual

For casual days at the office, pair a blazer with your statement T-shirt and jeans for the ultimate stylish combo. It’s versatile, timeless and effortlessly chic. And you can’t go wrong with buckle-up boots and colour popping accessories to bring everything together.
