Unfortunately that time of year is coming when the flip flops go to the back of the closet and the sun dresses get packed away in bins and sit idle until the spring. That’s right, winter is coming. Just because you have to bundle up doesn’t mean you need to look like out of style. Here are five simple and practical tips to keep you looking good this winter.
One of the most important things to do in the winter is keep your feet warm and dry. Wet feet can truly ruin your entire day! A good plan is to get women’s wellies or men’s wellington boots. These great creations are sure to keep your feet dry and they’re a fashion you can recycle during other seasons.
Rock Some Color
Winter is seen as a dull season where people usually stick to their greys and blacks. This isn’t a bad thing, I love the darker colors but it isn’t a bad thing to throw a bit of color in. Whether it be your hat or your watch a strong color like red or green can add just enough flare to catch the attention of anybody walking your way down the street.
Don’t Get Cheap With A Coat
It’s well worth it to get your self a high quality wool coat for the wintertime. Staying warm is always key and lower quality coats can make this a bit more difficult for you. There are lots of great styles for coats this year. The other great thing about a proper wool coat is that it can last you for winters to come. Get fun with it as well, pea coats with hoods are a popular and fun style. You still look classy, but your cool about it.
This winter one of the hottest patterns is tartan. This style of crisscrossed horizontal and vertical lines has been rapidly picking up in popularity recently. A pair of tartan styled pants or coat can really make you stand out during these bleak months. One of the best parts about tartan is that you can find so many combinations of colors in one pattern that you can be subtle or you can go bold.
I think that this is a staple for every season. You can find a load of cheap accessories to compliment your outfit and make you look like a superstar. The good thing about the winter is that you have different options for how to accessorize. Pay mind when choosing hats and scarves. If you can, try and be a little different. Instead of a hat try a fresh pair of earmuffs, this is a good way to ensure that your hair won’t get messed up on the way to the office. Also, gloves can really set off an outfit and if you’re feeling more playful opt for a pair of mittens instead!Add a comment Add a comment
