The beginning of winter can feel like the end to style. There is a huge misconception that you can’t be warm and fashionable at the same time. You don’t have to trade in sleek summer styles for shapeless winter wear. You can still look hot when temperatures drop with these five easy tips:
1. Grab a Pair of Gloves
Elbow-length gloves are not just for the opera anymore. Pay homage to classic glamour by sporting a pair with the right outfit. They are a perfect way to continue wearing your favorite fall coat in the winter. Coats with short, bell-shaped sleeves are stylish and fun, but how to wear them in cold weather can be a bit of a mystery. The solution is elbow-length gloves. Not only do they allow you to wear your favorite fall coat throughout the winter, they make your arms appear feminine and slim. They are also a great way to dress up evening wear. To avoid looking like you are going to the prom, pair them with a dress that has a simple, sleek silhouette.
2. Trendy Tights
Tights are another way to stay fashionable in the winter. A great pair of tights will keep you warm when you want to show a bit of leg. Classic black tights are slimming, and can make a bright dress pop. Opaque tights are a great way to look feminine and sexy. Show off your personal style with patterns. If you want to add an edge to any outfit, grab a pair in an unusual color.
3. Stylish Boots
Boots are a must-have item for the winter season. Knowing what style is flattering for your figure is crucial to getting the right pair. If you are short, avoid wearing boots that extend past your knee. Thigh-high boots will make you appear shorter. Booties with a heel are a great way to look taller. If you are tall, knee-length boots will accentuate your legs. Equestrian styles are classic and a good choice if you want to avoid heels.
4. Fur Vests
Fur vests are all the rage this winter. To the uninitiated, wearing one can be intimidating. Since this piece of clothing is an attention grabber, pair it with a neutral long-sleeved shirt, your favorite pair of jeans, and boots.
Last but not least, invest in getting your favorite wardrobe pieces tailored. Tailoring can make all the difference between looking like a fashionista or a fashion victim. Coats and pants can swallow your figure and look bulky. Tailoring will help keep your shape in the winter.
Follow these easy tips to avoid falling into a fashion rut this winter. With the right accessories and clothes that flatter your body, you can look great all year long!
