Winter can be a tricky time of year. The temps are colder and all I want to do is pile on the layers to keep warm! Too many layers, however, can result in so much bulk that your look goes from FAB to DRAB in no time! Never fear, I’ve got five tips for how to find the best of both worlds…you CAN stay warm and look cute at the same time!
Layer, layer, layer!
One of the easiest ways to stay warm this winter is to layer! Using thin layers like turtlenecks or tees will ensure you don’t add too much bulk to your frame. The top layer should be the thickest layer so you can easily remove it if need be.
Choose coats that make a statement
Winter can be drab and gloomy so I love to add some print and color to my outwear collection each year! Pulling out a bright colored wrap coat or animal print topper can really amp up your outfit and your mood when it’s 12 degrees out!
Repurpose your summer wardrobe
Gone are the days of packing away your summer wardrobe each year, now I find ways to incorporate my entire wardrobe into the rotation all year-long! Layer a turtleneck under a short sleeve top or dress, add tights when wearing a skirt or strappy sandals, wear a solid or floral print tee under a long sleeve cardigan, throw a cape on over your favorite tee…all great ways to winterize those summer faves and get extra milegae out of them!
Accessorize in all the right places
Accessories are my best friend in the colder months! Hats, scarves and gloves are not only key in helping to keep warm, but they’re great items to really get creative with when getting dressed in the morning! Adding something like a plaid blaknet scarf to a dress or white long sleeve tee and jeans takes your basic look to a new level!
Faux Fur is your friend
Faux fur is a great material to pile on and keep warm in these cold months! The key is to pick one item and make it the focus of your look so whether it be a scarf, vest or coat, pick your favorite faux fur piece and rock it!
With these tips you’ll be sure to stay warm and look FAB all winter long!
