American fashion designer Rachel Zoe once said that “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” Indeed, the way you dress up says something about your personality and character. However, it is not always easy to stay chic and in fact, one of the most difficult times to dress up is the winter period because you must keep in mind the changing weather and plummeting temperatures. The good news is there are several ways to stay stylish in winter without freezing or losing a body part to the cold.
Your underwear is crucial in keeping you dry and warm. In this regard, invest in good thermal clothing that will retain heat such as high quality merino wool that keeps you warm and does not itch. Do buy a pair of woolen tights and socks, and a top that you wear as base layers. Even your pets can benefit from thermal undershirts that they can wear around the house especially if your beloved companions are short-haired.
It is important that they wear warm clothing indoors and outdoors to avoid getting sick and for comfort. Animals, like humans, are sensitive to the cold and could get frostbite or hypothermia if exposed to the elements for a long time.
As important as the base layer is, equally, the choice of coats and jackets matters in keeping you stylish and warm. Puffer jackets are cosy and trendy. In fact, they are winter staples that almost never go out of style. They also come in different colours from blacks and greys to beige and camel. Another stylish way to go through winter is to wear a long coat. They are functional because these types of coats cover more of the torso.
Hence, nearly your entire body is protected from the elements. According to apparel specialists, the warmest winter gear must have a high loft technical outer shell, good insulation, and practical features such as a hood, zippers, seam sealing, and knit insert cuffs.
Footwear And Accessories
Long boots or over-the-knee boots give your overall outfit a chic look. They not only offer an extra layer of warmth especially if you’re wearing a dress or skirt, but also project a polished appearance. However, if you’re going to be walking over snow and rain, you will want to invest in functional boots that are warm yet not too bulky for style. Spend a bit more on high-quality pairs that will get you through winter weather.
Don’t miss out on accessories that will put the final touches on your outfit and style. For example, leather gloves look elegant while hats such as wool hats or French berets help retain heat on your head and at the same time, uplift your overall appearance. You can’t also go wrong with a scarf that can easily transform an outfit from dull to exciting.
It is possible to look well put together in colder weather. A good base layer, practical yet smart outerwear, snappy foot gear, and fashionable accessories can make your ensemble pop.
