How To Survive: December

The year is about to end and the fashion world is in a tizzy, declaring the upcoming trends and already looking back on the best fashion moments of 2014. Let me give you a quick fashion guide on how to survive this December like the fashionable creatures like we are.
The Burberry colour block blanket poncho has been declared the it jacket this fall. But, not everyone can get their hands on a $1395 worth of jacket just to keep warm in style. So, like a good angel I have compiled a list of chic wool ponchos that will help you sail through December feeling like a style goddess. If the very Brit brand's style is not up your alley then take inspiration from Valentino's embroidered boho blanket ponchos that came out on the Paris catwalk last season. And a bit of this and that you need to style up a storm on a daily basis.
Psst - If your Indian mother sees your blanket poncho and starts using it as her shawl don't be very shocked.

Blanket Poncho
Asos ($106), Free People ($168), AX Paris ($53.20), Topshop ($68), Myntra (INR1079), Asos ($135), Forever21 ($32.80).

Team your stylish blanket ponchos with plaid loafers, pointy-toe boots or these to-die-for Stella McCartney platform brogues(look at ebay for cheaper options). Boho is in style for the chilly season as well, so, indulge in a fringed bag. A metallic clutch is must-have for all your parties and a classic bag is essential for all your business looks(this one is the Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise one. Isn't it stunning?). I am digging pom-pom beanies this season and I will be sporting them a lot this month. Invest in an infinity scarf and knee high socks, they are so much fun to style! You can pair these socks with shorts or skirts and flash just a tiny amount of skin while you stay all warm and fuzzy. And you just need a body moisturiser - need I say why? You cannot just moisturise your face, you body needs it too to avoid flaky, dry skin.

I had so much fun researching and writing this post! Hope you found something fun and interesting here to prepare for and survive this December.


  1. Loved those ponchos. Lovely ensemble :)

  2. Haha, love this post! Adore the platform brogues! O_O Didn't knew the Burberry coat costs a liver and my left pinkie. Damn! Expensive!

    1. I love the brogues...and I know! it is expensive as hell! I can afford an amazing vacation in India with that money!

  3. We love ponchos, we hate ponchos. What's going on? lol. I'd say it has a lot to do with the return of the cape trend (because honestly, capes are just stitched ponchos... lol. Thought about making one...). Anyways, I can't believe this year is ending & lovely to know you my first year of blogging! Cheers. :D
