As the weather gets colder and attire begins to change accordingly, you can keep up your chic look while still remaining cozily dressed and practical. Naturally, we tend to wear darker, and let’s be honest, more boring, frumpy clothes for the sake of being warm. Check out these 5 accessories that can help make any basic winter outfit extra sharp.
Add some casual class to any blouse or shirt by finding a few nice cardigans. On any cool day, you can warm yourself with this light accessory by wearing it with the proper outfit. The fashion professionals of www.reemclothing.com suggest pairing a soft gray cardigan and leave it unzipped over a festive polo. Or get a fancy black cardigan with a see-through design on the back and button it up over a nice Christmas red. Mixing and matching outfits and colors will keep you warm and trendy.
These particular accessories have so much potential for creativity and beauty. They can go around the waist, warm your neck, drape loosely across the shoulders or hold back your hair. Build up a collection of scarves to go with various outfits; you can wear a black coat over a purple blouse and add a royal colored scarf to accent it, or change up shades of green with your tights, shirt, and scarf.
Whether you wear some neutral fingerless gloves so you can still type and text, or full-length gloves to keep your tips warm, it’s good to coordinate the colors with your coat buttons or hat color. For longer gloves, whether they go to your wrist or to your elbow, leather is a more adult look that lasts wear and tear longer.
The best way to do hats is to match them to either your hair or your coat. If you have a scarf that is multicolored, you can add splashes of different color by mixing and matching your gloves and hat with it. Whether it is a felt fedora, a casual beanie, or a stylish cloche, you can make any outfit stand out with a fancy hat on to complete your look.
Fur Coat or Boots
You can add instant style to any outfit by wearing some faux fur boots or a coat with a fur collar. It keeps you warm, and makes everything you wear instantly fancier. It doesn’t take much, and whether you want to buy boots and a coat that already have fur on it, or find a fur collar that you can add on yourself, you can have fun making a wool coat go from slightly fancy to stunningly fabulous.
Through it all, the important thing is to build up your wardrobe of various and matching colors and styles, add a lot of fun accessories, and then get creative with your own style. Happy holidays!
