In The Mood For Denim

As Doha transitions to cooler weather, a wardrobe change is in order. Now is the time to take your coats and jumpers out from wherever you’re keeping them so you’ll be ready once the temperature drops.

I’m a Manila boy so I didn’t invest in cold weather garbs before coming here but since Qatar winters are not like Canada’s, a sweater or a light jacket will suffice.  If you don’t have one yet, a jean jacket would be a nice addition to your clothes arsenal.  It’s light, casual and Doha weather appropriate which means layering is possible without the worry of looking and feeling stuffy.

Denim is made of cotton so you know it can breathe and can be dyed in a wide range of colors.  It comes in different thickness too so depending on how you can tolerate the cold is just a matter of preference.  In terms of styling, denim clothing is versatile.  You can even wear this material to work!  Like this for example:

Personally, I like the distressed (not extreme though) look as the frays and abrasions exude more character—it has that lived-in vibe (without looking beggarly) that I really love.
