The fact that it is cold outside does not mean there is no room for fashion! Yes, while outside you are probably buried in huge coats, scarves and hats, but you can do all of that stylishly! Let’s see how we can make our winter wardrobe awesome and express ourselves during the cold months.
Layer, layer, layer. If you only wear one warm sweater and a massive coat, you might feel great outside, but whenever you enter a building, you will not have a chance to do anything in case you feel hot. Moreover, layering is very important to help the body preserve temperature. By layering a few pieces of clothing one on top of another you can get by with wearing a thinner coat, which is usually a more stylish option than coats designed primarily to keep you warm in extra harsh winter conditions. A thin shirt, a nice knit sweater and a coat should do it!
Scarves, hats, gloves
True, it is difficult to liven up your outfit with accessories in wintertime. Or is it? Perhaps you’re considering the wrong kind of accessories? Instead of necklaces, bandanas, and bracelets, try out scarves, hats, and gloves! You can still wear all of your favorite accessories underneath, but when it comes to the outfit you wear outdoors, a bright and interestingly-patterned scarf, and edgy hat or some elegant faux leather gloves can make (or break, for that matter) a winter look. Don’t be afraid of large scarves! If you’re cold inside, it can function as a shawl, and if it’s extra crisp and chilly outside, you can use it to cover a half of your face and in that way avoid a red and runny nose.
To make your look seem even more though out, buy gloves and a hat, or gloves and a scarf, of the same color. Matching items add a nice hint of attention to detail, and details are the main thing distinguishing a mediocre look from an eye-catching outfit. Also, chances are that even inside you will wear sweaters instead of t-shirts; wintertime offers endless possibilities for sweater-pant matches. And who doesn’t love a nice and comfy sweater.
Shoes vs boots
Warm feet, warm body. Fact. Even if you are not a huge fan of massive boots, there are options for you. When was the last time you rocked some knee-high boots? Those keep not only your feet but also your ankles nice and warm. If you’re feeling extra edgy, get them with high heels or ones that go way over your knees. Such choice will upgrade you look from stylish to fashionista. However, when you buy boots like that, get them at least half a size larger than normal – you might want to wear thick socks or pants and it might not be great if you have trouble zipping them up.
