What To Wear This 2011/12 Winter Fashion Season

When winter sets in its time to bring out the bulky, obtrusive clothing in order to keep warm and toasty during the freezing temperatures.  However, that doesn't mean one has to give up style for comfort.  

Zoe Phobic - Killers on the Catwalk 2011/2012 FWThis 2011/12 winter fashion season offers fashionistas many styles and designs to choose from.  From modest clothing to cute tops to over-stuffed outfits, there is something for everyone to wear and enjoy.  Winter fashion can be cute, fun, sexy or romantic as one ponders the many options to choose from without giving up the look your trying to convey.

A 1940's style outfit is making a comeback as it is the new retro look to clothe yourself in.  Calf length skirts with a fitted polo neck shirts or a Pussy Bow Blouse would make a nice assemble that provides a crisp elegance with a hint of flair.  Modest while looking exceptional, this style would make an excellent outfit for business.

Or perhaps you prefer a softer, more pleated look to your outfit; with fabrics of tulle or soft silk that help drape the body in mystery and allure.  A "ballet" style ensemble will emit captivating innocence while allowing the wearer to feel sexy, romantic and alive.

Designs are all over (360°) and not just concentrated on the front or back, with chunky, knitted patterns to dresses, shirts and even shoes.  Using laser cut contours and by pleating, twisting and turning, designs are lacy while an added edge of sophistication is included in the overall appearance.  Military styles, ponchos and trench coats in animal or python prints are also keeping their edge on fashion, remaining a part of the culture as designers try to come up with innovative styles.

Layered looks are another method to staying warm this winter, the more layers you have, the more warmth you can generate.  Whether you're wearing straight legged pants or a mini-skirt, layering cute tops with chunky sweaters is sure to give your  modest clothing look, stunning appeal, while allowing you comfort.
