Fashion Tips: How to Look Stylish Even in Winter
When the primary purpose is to keep warm to go through less sunny and more dreary days, most of us ladies are tempted to simply throw as many items as possible together and head out of the door without looking and feeling cute! Simple planning can keep you warm and stylish at the same time through the cold winter months without sacrificing neither looking aesthetically pleasing nor function.
In this article, we’ll go over ways on how you can turn your less inspiring wardrobe around and have a closet filled to the brim with exciting items that will let you look stylish when you get out of your incredibly warm and nice bed to brave the cooler temperatures.
Purposeful layering is an incredible way of being warm while creating a chic and trendy look. It allows you to be creative and play with different colors and patterns while being functional and sufficient in supporting varying temperatures that you encounter on cold winter days (from frigid cold outdoors to overheated cars and offices).
The key is getting thin pieces that offer you maximum warmth like cashmere. You can also layer on scarves in pulling looks together. Don’t forget to play with varying lengths that will flatter the shape of your body.
Go over the knee
Many women shy away from boots that go over the knee. While we purchase six-inch patent leather boots as we’ve been inspired by the runways, we shove it at the back of our closets by the time we need to wear them.
Dust those off as life’s too short to wait for the best time to wear them! if you think you will feel more comfortable with low-heeled or flat boots, opt for the materials and shades that are trendy. Pair your boots with matching pants like tan on tan or black on black or make a dress or skirt more weather appropriate by getting out a skinny shaft boot in covering more leg.
Cover your head
During the winter season, most of the heat of your body is lost when the head is not protected. A hat is, therefore, absolutely essential whenever temperatures get low. Think of this to be your opportunity (or excuse) to get a brand new hat that you know you’d want to wear. Of course, you need to make sure that your purchase flatters your face shape and complements or completes most of your winter outfits.
One of your options for cold weather is quality faux fur trapper that you’ll be able to wear if temperatures go down below zero. It is always on trend for winter and is guaranteed to keep you warm. Another chic choice is a wide brim hat made of wool to keep your face free and the wool will keep your head warm.
Cross to the wilder side
With the winter season, fake fur is a sartorial no-brainer to keep us warm. Faux fur options, when worn tastefully, elevate any look immediately. Consider substituting a jacket or peacoat with a fur coat. It’s always nice to have a change in texture that will create a high-end, sophisticated look and keep you warm and updated with the trends of the season.
Make a statement
If you are always down to rock statement bags, shoes, and necklaces, the next step for you to making a statement is by using a coat! Our favorite influencers, The Real Fouz and TheHala, always advise ladies in resisting the temptation to mimic gloomy winter days with dark jackets and coats. Skip the black and gray with statement coats in bright hues or bold animal prints.
The key to pulling off this look is keeping other all other clothing items simple and neutral, as you’d want the coat to do the talking.
Most people shy away from anything white on winter months; however, much like statement coats we just mentioned earlier, a coat or jacket in white can actually brighten your look and still be winter-appropriate. Pair with a darker print like a dark floral pencil skirt or dark solid.
Grab a cape
Capes have always been great options whenever a piece is needed that’s both chic and dramatic without exerting too much effort. A cape is great for pulling looks together while providing enough warmth.
Opt for prints for a more unique look that is far off from the classic cape styles. As usual, make sure you pay close attention to proportions whenever you are styling your cape. With most body shapes, sticking to a leaner and less bulky bottom is the key to pulling off this look.
