Winter wardrobes don’t have to be depressing gray and black. Make your outfits shine this season by adding color and texture. Follow these tips and you will easily look modern and trendy while standing out from the drab days and crowd.
Metallics are back this season, but in a more subdued way. Instead of the bright golds and silvers of seasons past, this winter it’s all about bronze, pewter, gun metal silver, and dark gold tones. Mix it up with different textures and intensities of metal to give your outfit extra interest.
Try adding a metallic bag or shoes to your everyday look. They are sure to give your outfit some snap during those gray days. Wear a metallic coat or strapy heels with your little black dress for a dramatic evening look. However you incorporate metal tones into your wardrobe, you are sure to turn heads.
Tights and leggings are the ultimate winter accessory. They can instantly add a jolt of color or texture to an otherwise mundane outfit. Not to mention the fact that they are the single most effective way of making your summer and fall skirts and dresses stretch into the winter months.
This winter it’s all about black leggings, black or nude fishnets, or patterned tights in classic colors such as black, navy, or cranberry. If you really want to pop, add turquoise tights to a black dress and shoes and you will be in with all of Hollywood’s fashionistas. Invest in a variety of colors and textures and get those legs out girls!
To wear the cowboy boots this season or not to wear the cowboy boots. They were all the rage last winter, but this season 80’s inspired boots are in hot demand. Pair ankle boots with skirts dresses or skinny jeans for the ultimate 80’s chic look. Slouch boots can replace your cowboy boots, as they have low heels and look great with any skirt or dress or with your jeans tucked in to them. Boots are a great way to update your look without replacing your whole wardrobe.
No need to let the gray days get you down. Whether you add metallic clothes and accessories, funky tights or a new pair of boots to your wardrobe, make a point of adding something trendy to your closet this winter.
