7 tips for dressing in winter
Invest in coats and parkas
Of course this is stating the obvious. But then that is how it is, right? Winters mean braving the chill. Which in turn means coats and parkas. There is no need to be disillusioned though. Coats come in such a variety of material, colour, cuts and designs that they are style statements by themselves. The thing to know is which to pick. This is where you must use a closet app. These apps are built around keeping their users updated on the latest trends. Fashion is so transient; it is sometimes difficult to gauge what is in. Investing in a good coat is a decision you will cheer lifelong.
Scarf up the glamour factor
Be it summer or winter or spring, a scarf is kind of eternal. Only the material changes through seasons. Wool scarves are a must in winter, not only to protect you but also announce your fashion consciousness. And then there are multiple ways of draping a scarf. Check with your favourite outfit planner app on this. Wools and tweeds are materials often used for winter scarves. There is always the infinity scarf of course. With multiple ways of tying and wrapping a scarf, your options are infinite really. Explore them all and make the best of winter.
Go for cinched outfits
Going through a closet app will reveal one common fashion trend for winter wear. This is the cinched look. Whether it is maxi dresses, knitted dresses, utility dresses or coats themselves, cinched options are very common. This look takes care of the bulkiness often associated with winter wear. Most winter wear is heavy and gives the impression of bulk. The moment you cinch at the waist, you are providing extra definition to your look. Definitely utilise the virtual view offered by an outfit planner app to get an idea how this works for you.
Work those boots
Invest in boots after checking with your closet app. What is winter without them anyway? Different kinds of winter boots are a must in any fashionista’s arsenal. The length and colour as well as trimming (faux fur in case of winter) makes all the difference to any outfit. A stylish pair of boots can transform a plain outfit into a thing of beauty. As an extension of this idea, shorter length boots or booties with faux fur trimmings look wonderful too. These accentuate your look with the very long coats that are currently ruling the fashion charts. Since winters make the wearer top heavy with layering, it is a good idea to go for slim pants. These accommodate long boots much better too, while giving the whole outfit the much needed balance.
Layer it up for look and utility
One of the best winter dressing advices is to layer. Layer it up is what everyone says. While science has proven that layering helps trap heat, for you ladies it is the art that matters more, right? The idea of layering means you can now show off your best garments in style. Beginning with a polo neck, one can go in for a deep V neck colourful sweater followed by a front open jacket and top it all with a stylish long coat. The advantage of layering is you have the option of leaving the front of your coat open. This will only accentuate the look and add to the oomph. Check out any outfit planner app for best suggestions on layering.
Woollen skirt suits
Skirt suits are a great way to stay stylish in winter. Instead of being in wool pant suits all the time at work, try these. You can look for styling tips on your closet app as well. Woollen skirt suits look very smart when paired with long boots. They serve the purpose in winter very well. In fact you can make them regular office wear. Ease of movement along with style makes this a great option for winter. In view of this, add some of these to your wardrobe.
Cap it in style
Last of 7 tips for dressing in winter and definitely the most defining is headgear. Not only does one need to protect the head from the biting cold but look stylish as well. It is a must that you stock up on different kinds of winter headgear for the upcoming freeze. Go through your wardrobe now using your closet app. Beanies are everlasting in their popularity.
