Step Out Into the Cold in High Style

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2010) - The catwalks of the fashion world are currently filled with the latest winter styles. Kays is committed to providing you with size 16 plus women's clothing styles to ensure you look your best this season.

With a wide variety of shapes and variations women will be spoilt for choice when deciding on what to wear during the cold winter days. Comfort is key this season, making layers a fashion forward way to stay warm. A key item for layering is vests. They come in a variety of styles and materials and their versatility makes them a must-have item this winter.

Women who aren't fond of the layered look can opt for another trendy item – sweater tunics. Summer tunics have been modified for the winter months with mixed woollen materials and longer sleeves, while embellishments and feminine trims help to keep that classic summer tunic feel.

This winter, the trendiest embellishments are metal studs, spikes and eyelets. These can be seen on ultra flattering leather biker jackets, gold studded jersey tops and studded buckle suede ankle boots. Those in the know advise against mixing too much metal and to consider breaking the effect with a detailed pattern.

Leggings, treggings and jeggings provide an interesting way to add colour or an alternate design to an outfit. From floral to lace and now even denim, leggings can be slimming if paired with the right pieces. When matching this season's footwear with a pair of leggings, opt for heels such as over the knee boots or platform courts.

For a more relaxed feel during the day, replace the heels with a pair of leather ballet pumps and a diamante butterfly sweat top. Add a frilly hanky trim trench and slouchy loose knit beanie or woollen snood and you'll be ready to face the cold in high style.

Clothing with mixed fabric combinations are also a big trend this season, with a lot of designers choosing to display this in trims. Match this trend to your style with fur, lace, different knits, pleats or suede.
