Have you started thinking about what to wear this winter? It seems that just as we start to embrace the fall fashion season, the winter season is upon us. We need to swap our autumnal colors for the steel winter rainbow. Change our suedes to leather and begin layering up.
When fall turns into winter and thick coats become mandatory as opposed to an option, some may consider throwing on whatever they pick up from the floor, thinking no-one will see it. However, just because it’s freezing out, doesn’t mean we have to collectively resign ourselves to giving up on style.
We promise great style, even during winter’s darkest days, is not only possible but exciting and dynamic. Here, a few of our top tips and tricks to stay warm and seriously stylish out there!
Become a Layering Pro!
There is a reason layering is always on-trend in the winter. It’s a massively practical way to dress when it’s really cold outside. Don’t be afraid to pile on the layers and mix it up a little. A turtleneck under a sweater is a fashionable choice. Tights under ripped skinnies jeans adds both warmth, and a new different pair of jeans for your wardrobe.
Let your Boots do the Walking.
A killer pair of thigh high boots will not only keep your legs warm they look utterly amazing as well. They bring a super sexy feel to any outfit and can add a few inches to your height. Always a bonus! Most come in neutral colors of blacks, browns or gray making them very versatile, which is great for pairing with different winter outfits.
Invest in Winter Accessory Essentials.
Having a decent pair of gloves, a hat or a scarf will make a huge difference when you are out and about on the streets in the winter months. They are not only practical, but with the huge range of designs, styles, and materials — most at reasonable prices — you can have a few options. Accessories can totally change an outfit style so having a few different sets in your wardrobe is a must!
Belt Up Your Coat.
A popular new trend at the moment is wearing a belt around your coat, and we love it! Wearing the same thick winter coat each and every day can become very boring. This winter tip can breathe life into your trusty winter essential and give you a chance to experiment with different looks without bending your wallet out of shape. Just remember you need to get it around your coat so think big!
