Winter has come, and along with it the lethargy and absolute desire to snuggle into your favorite blankets and enjoy the winter mornings through your window. Getting dressed could seem like such a task, not only because you can’t think of enough layers to cover yourself up for the chilly weather, but also because looking good in all those layers seems an impossible feat. Winter days may be short, but they can become quite difficult to get through if you aren’t dressed right. Well, thanks to celebrity stylists and your personal style guides (like ourselves) the task of carrying winter in style has become easier than ever! Following are a number of ways you can don the winter look in style, and that too without having to compromise on comfort:
Keep it Minimal
While wrapping yourself in a blanket would hardly check any fashion boxes, wrapping yourself in a chic warm winter coat is the way to go about it. Many a times, going minimal does just the trick. And if you are not a fan of burdening yourself with too many layers and accessories, then this look by Alexa Chung has made things as simple and cozy as they can get when the temperature scales down to minus. Alexa Chung is one of the top stylistas in the fashion world today, and if she makes a style statement in a simple pair of cropped jeans and a winter coat, then it means the style has been approved by the fashion gurus. You can easily pair the look with a warm scarf if the weather gets too chilly.
Bold Colored Blazers
Blazers keep making a comeback! So if anyone told you it was a passing fad and you shouldn’t invest in one, then it is time for you to play a deaf ear to that someone. Bold colored blazers can easily help brighten up the gloomiest of winter days. And the best part is, they can easily be paired with a number of items that you’d already have in your wardrobe. You can pair it with a pair of pants for a casual look, or even with a dress for something more formal, like the Duchess of Cambridge has paired this bold blue blazer with a dress for a formal gathering.
Wrap Yourself in Layers
Layers can hardly go wrong during winters. All you need to do is make good use of the items that you already have in your wardrobe, select coordinating colors and avoid the urge to go overboard. Quite simple isn’t it? Well, if you are still a little confused, then this particular look carried by Elle Macpherson will enable you to even take your fringed scarves from the days gone by and pair them with an otherwise toned-down look.
Take Out Your Dad’s Over-sized Coats
The best thing about fashion is that there are no specific rules, and it gives you extra points for daring bold looks. And the current trends encourage you to make it large, well, even larger, if possible. So if you found a particular overcoat of your dad’s or significant others quite warm and comforting, then there is no reason for you to limit it for your night-ins. It is just the time for you to flaunt over-sized coats in style.
