Depending on what country you live in, winter can be downright dreadful if you’re not fully geared up from the cold. If you’re trying to warm up, yet feel horrible with layers of clothing that simply don’t match, you might need some inspiration to make your winter looks more fashionable yet functional.
Learn to layer like a pro.
Layering your most favorite clothes can help you beat the cold, but it often ends up not so stylish since winter coats are bulky. When times get tough, you probably want to know how to layer your clothing properly. As a rule of thumb, wear the most lightweight piece close to your body and the bulkiest as your outer layer. Also, there are no use adding different clothing items and expecting to get the most out of it, if you don’t layer them properly. Like fashion blogger Aimee Song, you can go for a breezy, lightweight outfit if you’re going to top it with a bulky winter coat. On the other hand, you may opt for a lighter topper if you wish to wear your turtleneck with your breezy dress and a blanket scarf like fashion blogger Michele Krusi did.
Don’t be afraid to add some color.
Winter is known for being a little bit dull in the fashion department, but it doesn’t have to be. Wearing darker colors may be best in the winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to refrain from adding some color to the mix. If you’re not a fan of bold colors, stick to jewel tones and classic shades that will keep your looks grounded in the winter months. Like fashion blogger Oksana Ohhrehova, a burgundy dress and jacket will add some color in a muted way without resorting to head-to-toe neutrals.
Experiment with faux fur.
Faux fur has the capability of turning a dull outfit into a statement. Like fashion blogger Sonja Petrkowsky, wearing a fur scarf with your classic coat add some luxurious vibe to your typical winter outfits. You can also mix and match different colors and pattern, or opt for faux fur accessories that you can wear more often as you wish. Just remember to check the labels to ensure your purchase is 100% cruelty-free.
Don’t forget cozy scarves.
Apart from scarves being a winter fashion statement, bold printed scarves can add some flair to your winter outfit. No one said you have to wear dark and dreary colors so don’t trap yourself into thinking that. Winter can also be colorful with a few scarves in your closet. Like fashion blogger Oksana Ohhrehova, think of a plaid print scarf in classic colors, especially if you’re not a fan of bright and neon shades that will look elegant and timeless when worn with your winter dresses. So, don’t let winter steal your joy of looking your best. By heeding these simple tricks, you’ll be able to look stylish at the same time functional in the winter months.
