Some experts from downtown Dordrecht give tips for special must-haves that should not be missed this winter!
THE tips for updating your winter wardrobe!
Ladies beware: buy a suit and combine endlessly. That is the golden winter tip of Jaimey van der Eijk. Together with her mother Jeannette she is the proud owner of Amé Boutique in the Nieuwstraat. The store is full of the most beautiful accessories, jewelry and clothing. What really shouldn't be missing this winter is a suit, Jaimey assures. "Black is of course stylish for the holidays, a fun color or a cool plaid is surprising. It's nice to match, but also fine to wear separately. For example, combine the jacket with tough leather pants or choose a nice warm sweater over the pants. Just two new items, for at least one winter of fun. What more could you want?"
In Jac Hensen 's spacious listed building on Visstraat, you'll find stylish menswear for every moment on two floors. They just don't venture one tip for a man's winter wardrobe. "The optimal update depends on what you already have hanging in your closet and, in the case of men, often also your personal taste. But with us they have come to the right place because we can offer everything in one house. From your neat suit to your comfortable casual items. For all men: be welcome and stop by, our team of experienced salespeople will be happy to provide tailored advice."
With a pair of sturdy boots, women and men will be in good hands this winter. At Mohr & Mohr, the choice of quality brands is vast. Think for example of Nubikk and Shabbies, and many more. Nice and warm, tough and sporty, but also perfect to combine with a woolen dress, for example. Frenk Mohr, owner of Mohr & Mohr, also sees a trend that is back from the past. "Remember the classic Uggs from a few years ago? Good news for those who kept them. Just like last year, Uggs are still totally in. " Are you ready for a new pair? At Mohr & Mohr, of course, they are available in abundance. According to Frenk, you can never have enough sneakers either. And there's plenty of choice in those too at the exclusive shoe store.
Hats, gloves, sweaters, jackets, softshells, underwear, socks, shoes, backpacks, sleeping bags, camping gear and much more. After a visit to Alpaca Outdoor you could travel from the North Pole to the desert or jungle, but for now we stick to the beautiful winter hikes in the Biesbosch or De Elzen. "Weather or no weather, with layers you're always right," says Karin Giessen, co-owner of the outdoor specialist on the Groenmarkt. "Start with wool underwear, over that a wool sweater or fleece vest and finally a wind- and waterproof (lined or unlined) jacket. This way you can withstand all weather conditions, day after day, year after year. Choose good layers of clothing - comfortable and durable - and fully enjoy the most beautiful hikes. This will give you years of pleasure."
