Winter season is all about warming up yourself with bulky layers and dark palette, but that doesn’t mean you have to keep it plain and boring. Mind behind the Fashion Secrets blog, Oksana Orehhova is a fashion blogger and model from Estonia known for her creative style with a mix of eccentric and urban touches that might inspire your winter looks. Keep on reading to scoop some tricks from her.
Play with bright colors.
Winter may be known for dark palettes but that doesn’t mean you have to wait for spring before donning your bright colored ensembles. Depending on your personality, you can wear clashing colors together or simply add a pop of color to your winter outfits. Like Oksana, you may think of wearing a bold red puffer coat and winter boots with your blue denim jeans that will make everything eccentric yet effortless. Or, simply play with the blue hue on your denim whether making it look catchy with an all-nude outfit, or make it look cohesive in a monochromatic outfit like Oksana did.
Add some personality with creative prints.
Wearing prints can add some flair to your winter style. Like Oksana, don’t let the winter season stop you from wearing your floral print skirts which can spice up your cozy sweaters and bulky jackets. You may add some quirky vibe to your winter style with a graphic print tee teamed with your favorite leggings and winter boots like she did. Or, trade your classic sweaters with embroidered holiday sweaters that can channel the holiday atmosphere in your outfit.
Style your scarves unexpectedly.
Scarves can be a functional and stylish accessory in the winter. Whether you wish to wear it as a top, wrap it around your neck, roll it up, or knot it, scarves can instantly add some cozy look to your style. Fur scarves look more sophisticated over cashmere ones that can dress up your bulky puffer coats and oversized sweaters.
Resort to urban winter jackets and coats to add some edge to your style.
Oksana managed to keep her urban style in the winter by going for leather coats, puffer jackets, and other edgy winter coats that can make her basic tee and jeans urban-inspired. However, snow boots, Uggs, and other sheep-lined boots won’t make your style urban-inspired so trade them for a pair of futuristic boots, over the knee boots, and even combat boots that will add some edge to your street style. By heeding these tricks, you’ll be able to add some unexpected flair to your winter style.
