Winter fashion comes with some very cute accessories like boots, blanket scarves, knitted scarves, mittens, earmuffs, leather gloves, and beanies caps that can make your winter outfit chic and warm. Ugg boots are perfect for winter, but you may go for knee-high boots for a chicer look. Wearing chic knee-high boots or even thigh-high ones can let you show off your short summer dresses with a winter twist. Like Iga, opt for chicer winter accessories like opting for a chic bowler hat over beanies, and chic pair of boots over Ugg ones.
Go crazy with tights and socks in the winter whether solid-colored or printed and patterned style as long as it gives you warmth and comfort in the chilly weather. The best thing on wearing these winter staples, you can even show off your skirts, dresses, and shorts in the winter providing you a good insulation underneath. Like Iga, you may go for thick fabric skirt and top combinations or even dresses like leather, knits, fur, wool, and other kinds that will keep your outfit winter-friendly.
Bright, fun, and cheery colors is a trademark of the summer season, but you can still wear them even in winter. Though winter appropriate colors are usually dark and bright for summer, do the trick by pairing your brightly colored ensembles with dark ones to have a nice “pop” of color to our outfits. Dark colors like black, red, navy, forest green, and brown known to be the warming and insulating as their fabrics provide more hold of the heat rather than lighter and pastel shades. But, by adding a dark army green jacket with your light blue button down shirt and wearing dark washed trousers instead of white denim, you “tone it down” for winter making your summer ensemble winter-friendly.
One of the best ways to make your summer clothes winter-friendly is by adding a jacket or putting on layers to keep you warm and also trendy. A fur coat, poncho, wool coat, and knitted jackets are great for giving you extra warmth. Learn the basics of layering tricks to keep your looks fashionable even wearing tons of clothes. However, if you wish not to look bulky on winter layering, like Iga, go for leather on leather outfit by wearing a leather top, leather jacket, leather trousers, and leather boots all together in one outfit. This way, you wouldn’t look violating any fashion rules for winter. You just have to be creative and figure out a way to make your summer clothes winter-friendly.
