Winter season may be known for darker and bulkier outfits that can be functional for keeping you warm. But, don’t let gray days get you down. If you’re looking for ways to stay warm while waking up your winter wardrobe, keep on reading for the 4 ways to beat the winter style doldrums.
- Sport a spring palette and prints.
Dark, dreary, and monotone may be your clothing choices in winter that seem to mirror the weather outside. However, you can always lighten up at least in the color sense by wearing the spring palette. Introduce brighter, prettier neutrals like pastel blue, lavender, yellow, pastel pink and such on your winter looks. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, think of a floral print coat and bow sandals that look feminine and chic while keeping your looks winter appropriate.
- Wear your summer pieces in the winter way.
Why wait until the official start of spring to unpack warmer-weather pieces? Your sundresses are dying to get out so, try to wear them with your cozy winter coats like fashion blogger Nina Suess did, wearing a floral print midi dress with a pastel yellow fur coat that looks chic yet winter-inspired. Also, try pairing your favorite summer with your warmest winter layers, cozy outerwear, and accessories. If you think your denim jackets and button-down shirts are out of place this winter season, be inspired with Blair Eadie’s look wearing them in a winter way with a structured military coat.
- Experiment with lengths.
Different lengths on your tops and bottoms are perfect for covering up on chilly days while the style is set to carry over into spring. Like fashion blogger Veronica Popoiacu, try wearing your culottes with your mustard winter coat that looks cozy at the same time trendy. Or, wear your shorter midi skirts with tights or leather leggings to make them appropriate for the colder months like fashion blogger Blair Eadie did.
- Lighten up your outerwear.
While heavy overcoats are so easy to throw on and go, you may go for lighter outerwear to keep you effortlessly cool. Instead of going for a pair of jeans that would need a heavy winter coat to keep you warm, resort to a pair of patent or leather trousers that can work with a cropped trench coat. You may actually plan ahead to wear lighter layers earlier than normal that can make you extend your winter wardrobe with your timeless pieces. Cropped trenches, colorful blazers, and chic jackets all make great outerwear paired with chunky sweaters, scarves and long-sleeved layers. Just mix and match to make sure you’re still warm enough. By heeding our tricks, you’ll be able to beat the winter style doldrums effortlessly.
