The Holidays are here again and to the party lovers out there, this could only mean one thing: more time to party! If you love going to parties, I’m sure you have a closet full of outfits for these events and if you’ll take the time to look at them, you’ll notice that most of your party clothes are summer – appropriate ones – short dresses, sleeveless, made of breathable fabric. Now, if you were to wear these pieces to party right now, you’d be freezing cold. So, how do you make them more cozy? Check out these tips on how to party comfortably and in style this winter.
- LAYER UP – we all know that layering is one of the most stylish ways to warm up for cold seasons like fall and winter so why not do it with your party outfits as well? Got a really sexy tube-top mini dress? Go ahead and wear that then add some tights or stockings underneath to keep your legs warm and throw on a coat or a blazer before you brave the streets. You can then take it off once you reach the party place and put it back on again later before leaving.
- GO FOR MAXI LENGTH – whoever said that you can only wear miniskirts to a party definitely doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Midi length skirts are great but they have more of that office-y, more conservative feel to it so opt for maxi length instead and get that sexy look by opting for one with a high slit. Going for maxi length doesn’t only apply to skirts. You should go for maxi length coats and cardigans, too, as well as maxi sleeved tops. Being more covered up means being warmer and cozier.
- TOP OFF WITH A STATEMENT COAT – a statement coat always adds the perfect amount of drama to any look so if you’re looking for a way to keep yourself warm and chic at the same time for a party, just throw on a statement coat on top of your outfit and you should be ready to go.
- CHOOSE WARM FABRIC – so you want to keep wearing a mini or a sleeveless dress, that’s fine. A great way to do this without freezing yourself off in the winter is to choose pieces that are made of warmer fabrics like leather, wool, tweed and the like. Doing this will allow you to wear clothes that don’t cover up much.
