Become A Layering Pro
Apart from making a fashion statement, layering allows you to stay warm and cozy while out and about in winter weather. And just when you have to enter a warm space, you can undo the top warmest layer. The best thing about layering is there are no hard and fast rules.
However, it may just be quite a tricky proposition, for the look expected might go for a toss if not done right. Try to keep the first layer light & tight and let the second layer of sweater or cardigan etc add to the look factor. The outer layer can be a jacket, trench, poncho or a coat.
Belt Your Coats To Give Them New Life
As obvious or cliché a style move as it might sound, the trend never goes out of style. Belting a coat lets it take a shape that offers balance to an over all outfit.
Coats are usually not considered conducive for maximum warmth because of its shape, but belting it solves the issue in just one go. You don’t really need to get a new belted coat, as you might just try one you already possess.
Embrace Fur (Or Faux Fur, Of Course)
Comes winters and the time is apt for one to add fur to the wardrobe. It might be a jacket or simply a hat that adds a different flavour with fur.
Moreover, there’s a wide range of faux fur coats in the market to let you wear a classy look. There’s no better way to add warmth as well as glamour to your clothing than fur.
Mix And Match
Winter further allows you to experiment with whatever you wear. It is definitely not wise to spend a fortune on clothes every season and that is where the art of mixing and matching comes into play. The trick is to make what you own seem new again.
You can couple a pair of rugged jeans with a pullover as well as a leather jacket (must-have winter jackets), or a collared top under a fur coat or a long jacket.
Invest In Hats And Accessories
If you have to spend, get some cool hats and accessories home. You can get fur ear muffs or choose from a huge range of scarves. A stole (tips to drape scarfs different ways) or a muffler can also be a smart pick when chosen right. And yes, do not forget to choose the most comfy pair of socks.
