Penguins are cute! But fella, when somebody calls you an overstuffed penguin, your neurons start boiling up….
Chilly nights give you a hard time for sure. But, ah! You don’t have to hide yourself in never-ending layers.
The gently falling snowflakes, the frosted windows, and blanketed roads all herald one thing, winters! But with all these beautiful signs comes the feelings of shabby wardrobes.
The winter doesn’t need to depict a shabby and bulky wardrobe, does it?
Do we need to become next (How’ you doin’)
Oh, you got it right. I am talking about Mr. Food lover “Joey?”
Winters and freezing temperatures do not mean that we should be opting for hibernation. What we need is to awaken the hibernating creativity and revamp our sense of fashion!
The major winter fashion dilemma
This picture might sound like an exaggeration, but in reality, we do tend to mess up. Layering can be difficult with the confusion about what goes on top and what goes innermost. The trick is to mix and match the right way and ensure that you look flawlessly classy!
With five to six layers awaiting to be adorned, turning into a human snowman is a great possibility. This is why we have come up with a fashion guide for you to sort the layers and create a killer combination that looks effortlessly sophisticated and requires the least effort.
The winter wardrobe must-haves!
A swish of a wand, and here comes the pile of bulky winter wear. So time to say bye to polar bear days and wave hello to rivetingly snappy and refreshing winter fashion.
Boots give a fashion re-boot like no other:
Boots can be styled with every outfit. Be it jeans, skirts or dresses. All you need is to identify what look you like best. Boots, though classified as an accessory they can literally add the oomph factor like anything. Here are some ways you can make use of them when layering:
- They can be worn over stockings.
- Your skinny jeans can be paired up with the boots.
- Even your capris can be worn with long boots.
Leather Jacket- the key to layering
Leather jackets are an eternal clothing item, and the best part is that they are like long term investments with major returns. So you can very easily rely on the leather jacket to help you during the chilly weather. They can be worn over any dress and work for informal and formals.
For example, this beautiful, chic powder blue jacket is another option that you can opt for amongst the blue Leather Jackets possibilities. You can use it as the outer most layer, with hi-necks, cardigans, and shirts inside.
Faux- fur to avoid winter fashion faux-pas
A winter without fur should not be happening! It is the only season of the year where you can flaunt the different furs that are sitting in your closet.
So time to take them out, dust them free and use them to style the outfits like a pro. If you do not have them, then it is time to get one. You can wear fur scarves, fur mittens, and hats. Even fur jackets that help you look like you have just walked out of fashion magazine!
Make use of the versatility of the scarves
No please don’t be confused; scarves are not only meant to be wrapped around your head. They definitely have the potential to do much more. You can wrap them around the neck to keep the chilly weather out.
If you are looking to try experimentation, then we would suggest you can go styling it the following ways:
- Drape it around your shoulder in a knot.
- Let it flow down from your shoulders and belt it at the waist.
- Tie it up like a turban.
- Tie it in a loose knot around your neck.
Get carried away with the cardigans
Cardigans are meant to be worn on top. A good but typically old-fashioned idea. Today you can do much more with your cardigan. You can wear it over a shirt and then put on a coat. Or belt the cardigan at the waist to get rid of the frumpy look and show off your petite figure.
The layering trick
The whole idea about keeping warm and still be fashionably correct is to layer right. Wearing bulky clothing items like cardigans or sweaters as the mid or base layer is sure to make you look like you have gained extra pounds overnight.
Cardigans can be used as the mid-layer, but then you have to go for the thin ones. So that whole giant look can be avoided. Wearing heavy jackets as the outer layer will make sure that you look chic and classy. Once you are inside, you can very easily remove them and be comfortable.
Usually, when people opt to wear multiple things, they make the mistake of not pairing them well. In some cases, they end up looking like they have taken half of their closet!
