When the temperature drops, you need to haul out your winter clothing and benefit from layers and warm clothing to help you create a fun winter style. Just because the temperature has dropped, it doesn’t mean you need to forgo style to keep warm, far from it.
If you are looking for ways to improve your winter style, this post has some great tips you will want to try this winter.
Just because you are layering up, it doesn’t mean you need to be boring with your base layers. Spice up a plain outfit by having a pattern on show form underneath your layers, such as high neck base layers with funky designs that can just be seen from above your top layer.
Tight Over Loose Clothing
Clothing that is tightly fitted will help to keep the wind chill at bay. Substitute wide-leg pants skinny fit jeans and trousers to create a more balanced look that complements oversized knit sweaters and chunky boots. Keep your legs toasty by wearing tights or leggings lined with a fleece underneath skirts and dresses.
While you might be wrapped up under many layers, your accessories won’t be. Use your bags or boots to make a statement. Add in some eye-catching gold jewelry such as necklaces and rings to pull your look together and add depth to your winter style. Use our hats, scarfs, and gloves to make a statement too.
Mix It Up
Don’t be afraid to go bold with your layers. Try to stick to the same color scheme but experiment with different patterns in those colors to make a winter statement across your outfit and accessories too.
Wool Is Warmer
Wool wicks away moisture keeps you toasty and dry all day. If you find wool scratchy, merino and cashmere are good options. Merino wool is lightweight wool that is excellent for use as a foundation layer. Try a simple merino turtleneck and leggings as your winter base layer for the ultimate warmth. Cashmere is luxuriously silky wool that will keep you warm and comfortable. It’s a terrific choice for cardigans that are appropriate for the workplace and cozy beanies.
Covering your head to protect from windchill is vital, especially if you are outside for long periods. So why not use your headwear to complete your look. Be it bright and powerful headscarves, sophisticated wide brim Trilby hat, or relaxed beanies that scream comfort and style as you head out and about.
Sweaters and Skirts Work
Pair a thick cable knit pullover with a knee-length pencil skirt for a sophisticated look. Maxi and midi skirts that are a bit looser work well with sweaters as well: Try the French tuck and accessorize with a striking belt to keep the look balanced.
Work That Colour
Winter is known for its neutrals and darker tones, but adding a modest dash of color may elevate your style and make you stand out from the crowd. Not only that but you are not required to go all out. A purse with blue stripes or a colorful beaded bag is a simple way to inject some zing into your ensemble.
