I really find myself lucky to live in a place where winter visits us once a year. I love winter holidays, I love hot chocolate, I love to see how cold weather brings people together and I love long hugs to keep warm.
But unfortunately not all is joy and jolly in a cold season. For example, finding a cute outfit that works in this temperamental weather it can become very annoying. How can we manage to look effortlessly chic AND warm, without looking like a snow man? This is the big dilemma of each cold season, for us fashion challenged creatures.
Still, just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean we have to resign ourselves to giving up on style, it just means we all have to think a bit more creatively when getting dressed in the morning.
So this year, when the temperatures drop, instead of sacrificing style for comfort, start looking your best, by investing in a great looking coat. Go for a slightly oversized coat that you can easily wear with some layers underneath. Everybody owns a black coat, so why not stand out with a lighter outerwear color? Turn heads this season in a chic grey long line coat. Mine is from Zara and I simply adore its knit soft fabric – it screams warm and cosy. Moreover, the large collar gives a standout silhouette. And what I love the most about this item is its versatility: this coat fits with all types of looks - classy or casual.
Second trick: Let your boots steal the show. Show them off by pairing them with a wrap split skirt. Use them as a jumping off point to put together a great new inventive outfit, rather than just throwing them on with just anything.
Bonus trick: if you feel like this winter, all turns into age of ice, pair the wrap skirt with some jeans or pants underneath, instead of thights. It keeps the heath and the chic J
Chances are, you have a turtleneck somewhere in your winter wardrobe. This basic is having a major moment this season. Use it to complete any stylish look when freezing. This is also a great solution for people who don’t like to wrap up into big scarfs.
