Designer Nikhil Thampi gives you some tips to dress to the nines this winter:
. Cardigans are great for layering for both men and women; men can wear them over T-shirts.
. Shirts with thick cottons will help you stay warm and if you still feel hot, you can keep the top button open.
. Women can also layer using crop tops and crop jackets.
. Opt for jeggings with thick materials and wear ankle-length boots as knee-high ones look funny in Mumbai.
. Scarves with good prints will help you keep warm and stay in trend. Avoid wool though.
. Boyfriend jackets are a great way to stay warm and dress up for both a formal event and an evening out.
