It can be difficult as the weather gets colder and winter approaches to continue being your fabulous, fashionable self. Staying warm this winter, does not mean your fashion sense has to go out the window too. While sweats are certainly a comfortable and often affordable option, they aren’t always the best option. I have listed 5 tips that I believe with still keep you warm and fashionable in the winter.
Layer, layers, layers. They might be my best tip for you as layers allow us keep warm without having to resort to bulky sweaters. You can even work your summer wardrobe into the mix by layering tanks with your winter ensemble such as cardigans and lighter sweaters. Leggings are also not only extremely stylish but they will keep you incredibly warm.
2. Hats, gloves, + scarves
Luckily, the fashion industry has helped us out a bit in this department by making these necessities more fashionable then ever. Beanies are a favorite of mine but there are those days when I can’t risk a head full of static, or I decide to wear my hair up, in these cases I resort to earmuffs, which are actually quite fun to wear. Scarves of course are the ultimate accessory- no matter who you are. Invest in one- invest in several. The chunkier the scarf, the warmer you’ll stay.
3. Statement Coat
The winter is almost always going to require a coat, and yes a pea coat is classic but if you don’t want to look like everyone else you come across, invest in a statement jacket. Chances are many items in your winter wardrobe are pretty drab so a colorful, somewhat loud coat will really brighten you up.
4. Statement Sweaters
Well, you won’t be wearing your coat everywhere you go. Winter can be very long and dull, help give people something to talk about that doesn’t involve all the snow we’re getting or how badly they wish summer was here. Having a few statement sweaters will set you apart and keep the winter blues far from you and probably those around you too.
Those boots are made for making winter bearable, and are the ultimate accessory- not to mention totally practical. I recommend basic black and brown, but don’t be afraid to go out of the box by adding some contrast. There are many boot styles out there, you should pick what works best for you. Not all boots are made for activity but you can certainly still find fashionable ones that are.
Wishing you all a warm, safe and fashionable winter season!
