I am one of those people who can not wear enough clothes in the winter season. The problem with wearing too many clothing items at once is that you can easily look and feel like the Oros man. Although it requires a bit more thought and effort to remain stylish during the winter months, it is very possible and easy to achieve, once you get the hang of it. So, if you really want to snag the perfect cold weather style, throw out those old knitted sweaters and follow these easy steps.
1. Invest in a few fashionable winter jackets.
Choose one that is slightly shaped in the waist or has a waist belt. Women with a large bust should avoid double breasted jackets as this style can easily make the bust appear bigger. A neutral color is best since neutrals are ultra-wearable and will keep you looking classy. Colors like black, gray, and brown really cannot be beat. Choose white only if you are willing to invest the effort into making sure the coat stays spotless.
2. Buy a versatile and cute hat.
Although it’s better if you have different styles and colors of hats, having one main-stay can instantly pull together your look. Ideally, you should purchase a neutral-toned hat that complements your coat or buy a fashionable colored hat but finish off your look by wearing the same colored scarf or handbag.
One way you can protect yourself and keep yourself looking fashionable is with a scarf. Not only are they fairly inexpensive, they can be purchased in a variety of fabrics, colors, and styles. With a scarf, you can show your style personality and keep your body heat in your jacket. Scarves will add some colour and life to that cold and grey winter days. Try wearing a color that will either accent your coat or match your hat.
- A black coat could be paired with a scarf that is dark or light gray; burgundy; navy; or a fun, mixed pattern or print. Black will work well with nearly anything, but keep the look stylish and not kindergarten by avoiding colors that completely clash.
- Those wearing a brown coat should try scarves that are burgundy, a darker or lighter shade of brown, cream, purple, or a non-fluorescent shade of orange. Basically, brown coats work well with complementary neutrals or warm-toned scarves. Women can try a fun pattern or print to mix it up a bit!
Protect your hands from becoming dry by wearing gloves. Wearing mittens or extremely thick gloves would be warmer, but thin, streamlined gloves are more chic. Find a perfect medium that suits your outfit and the weather for maximum comfort. Leather gloves are very stylish and fashionable and works well when driving your car and to keep a nice grip on the steering wheel. Your gloves should either match you hat or scarf, or fit the color scheme of your outerwear in some way.
5. Stick with shoes that cover more skin.
By keeping your feet warm in the winter season you will stay warmer for longer. Although they may be cute, you really should save your flip-flops and strappy-shoes for spring and summer. During the late fall and winter months, your best bets to keep warm are different styles of boots, cute tennis shoes, and ballet flats. Obviously, your outfit will dictate what kind of shoes you wear. You wouldn’t wear tennis shoes with your formal skirt and tights.
6. Wear tights and thermal leggings whenever you wear a skirt or dress.
Instead of going bare-legged, ladies should consider wearing tights or leggings beneath their skirt or dress. Not only does it look more climate-appropriate in formal situations, your legs will remain softer since they won’t be as exposed to the elements. Just like scarves, leggings and tights come in many different varieties, so it is nearly impossible not to find a pair that will work with your outfit.
