Most of the time people suffer from winter blues s because they aren’t dressed up for the weather. Wearing plain old boring styles during winter makes you feel even more depressed. You will often see self-proclaimed fashion stars in winter getting caught up in the usual frumpy turtlenecks and thick woolen socks in combat boots. So how do you get out of this mundane lifestyle during the trendiest season of all – winter?
While the weather does get daunting and intimidating, most days it is fun, with glimpses of sunshine and light snow to make your day bright. Comfort should be your top most priority, closely followed by suaveness and style. Wool and cashmere clothes keep you warm but look out for colourful patterns and seasonal trends to spice things up. Black, beige and white are often seen as winter colours. By throwing in a dash of purple, red and green into the mix, your wardrobe will get a whole new feel. A red scarf, bright warm oversized sweaters, snug jerseys and big coats all add to that extra bit of character.
Black winter boots have been around for decades. Try and zing things up in the shoe wardrobe by looking at different options available today such as uggs, leather and fur boots, platform pumps and low stiletto heels. Keeping your feet happy is another crucial point to consider. Flats can be worn in winter provided the weather permits. From simple points to round toe forms, this season lets you dabble in a variety of hues and designs, adding that extra detail to your everyday wear. Heeled boots add further oomph to either the workplace or a Christmas party.
Pants need to flatter the lower half of your body especially if you’re wearing a long coat or jacket. Skirts are popular in winter and you can draw attraction to your long legs by wearing leggings and tights inside with different colours and prints to give you a flirtier look. Look out for accessories, which pop, such as colourful scarves, belts, gloves, jumpers, hats and eye catching jewellery. Silk, sequins and anything glitterati are another big in-thing this season. Dresses with belts and pockets too make a statement.
Look out for long off-shoulder woolen dresses which can be worn with leggings and high-heeled boots for a breezier appearance.
