Happy 2013, everyone! Hope you had yourselves a jolly-merry-happy holiday. And now that you’re all back from your lovely little escapades, are you wishing away the winter chill, craving for a warm summer day? Well how about we resolve to embrace the dip in temperatures instead through a style-minded take on “cozy-dressing”?

Staying warm certainly does not mean you have to refrain from staying chic. And that was the clear message delivered as a result of my style-stalking attempts on the Capital’s streets. To overcome your case of fashion brain freeze, take a cue from these adequately coiffed Delhiites combatting the cold weather in style.

Skinny basics go a long way, especially when worn together with such profoundly interesting layering techniques.

Invest in basic turtleneck sweaters from ZARA (above), available in various bright and basic hues.

Nubbly knits add a hint of texture. Go tonal and accessorize with a pop of color.

P.S. – She is certainly selling me on her killer Steve Madden booties!

Extend your Summer wardrobe to Fall. Give it a tomboy twist with your footwear.

Also, bouclé jackets are all the rage this reason. I spotted a gorgeous black cropped jacket and a white one with frayed details (above), both from MANGO.

Day-glam looks best with contrasting pieces.

I think it’s now fair to conclude that a splash of color can beat the dreariest of weather.
An understated nod to the furry outerwear trend keeps you warm without the bulk.

Beat the winter blues in a sunny yellow perhaps. Love the way that bold hue plays against the rich autumnal tones.

In the moment…

Showcasing a trend, or the lack of it, these candid captures give my imagination a distinctive edge each time I look at them. Hope they inspire you just as much.

And lastly, since puffer jackets seem to be the most sought-after fall item every season, I’m thrilled to share my current favorite find with you, the peter-pan collared puffed jacket from French Connection.
