This ultimate list of fashion essentials will get you through the cold-weather season in style
We all love our beautiful city Islamabad and can’t rave enough about how wonderful it is. But one thing we Isloo people don’t appreciate are the extreme weather changes in Islamabad. One day it’s raining cats and dogs and the other day we almost die in the scorching heat. But one thing is sure, we do love winter season the most. I mean who doesn’t love to wake up in the morning and have breakfast and arm cup of tea or coffee near heater in your room. The shawls, the boots, gajjar ka halwa, the view from Margalla hills and driving on the foggiest roads are some things we all relish about winters in Islamabad, but today we will be talking about Fashion – one of the most essentials of this chilly season.
This tailored list of the top must-have fashion trends for winter 2016/2017 is indeed a treat those in Islamabad. We also have some store suggestions to make your shopping experience much easier.
1. Shawls and stoles
Islamabad winters are just incomplete without shawls and stoles. To buy the best ones in Islamabad, visit the Gol Market in F-7 Markaz or Lok Virsa to find pure pashmina shawls. If you are tight on the budget then definitely rush to G-9 Markaz aka Karachi Company for a variety of shawls and stoles.
2. Coats, Cardigans and Jackets
What we love the most about winters is that we get to wear coats and jackets and making our outfit totally Pinterest worthy. There are a bunch of stores that sell great coats but obviously, you will have to scrutinize every store to find that one amazing piece that your wardrobe needs. My favorite places to buy coats and jackets are Mango, Outfitters, Breakout and Stoneage. The best way to find the piece that would suit your style is to visit the Centaurus Mall for an hour or two and visit each of these stores. I am positive that you’ll find some amazing coats and jackets this winters.
3. Sweat shirts and Hoodies
For those lazy winter days we all need to have some staple hoodies and sweatshirts so that we don’t have to worry what about our outfits. You’ll find some great sweatshirts in Almas store (Centaurus Mall) or Outfitters. To buy some funky, customizable hoodies and sweatshirts online, check out Tooney Teez.
4. Loafers and Boots
Like everyone in Islamabad, I too wait for winters to take out and wear my favorite boots from the closet. To buy some great and budget friendly loafers and boots visit Almas store, Breakout, Arq Shoes (Super Market), Charles & Keith (Safa Mall) and Hush Puppies (Centaurus Mall).
No winter is complete without wearing a warm pair of jeans. I definitely recommend you to invest in some good denim rather than buying jeans every year. Some good stores in Islamabad are Levis, Stoneage and ForestBlu.
