As we head into the last stretch of winter, it may seem as though your winter wardrobe has hit a drone. The colors are stagnant, and you’re sick of not looking fashionable when you head into the snow.
There are a couple tips and tricks for keeping warm and looking your best even when the cold weather has you down.
- This goes without saying, but a cute winter hat and matching gloves are a great way to stay warm. Winter hats and gloves range in style, color and functionality purposes so you’re sure to find something you like. Pick up a colorful beret or perhaps some of those special texting gloves! Hats are also a great way to protect winter hairstyles from suffering in high winds and snow.
- Plush tights are my favorite 2012 discovery. They are an opaque stocking with a fleece-lined interior, and they are just the trick when you want to wear a cute skirt or dress but have to walk all the way across campus to your class. Pair these with some cute knee socks and riding boots and your legs will stay toasty and trendy.
- Adding a belt to your trench or pea coat is another great way to add some style to your outerwear. I prefer the wide elastic belts because generally, they can fit over more of the bulk from the coat, but any belt will work as long as it fits! You can get belts in so many different widths, styles and colors. Simply throwing one onto your waist before heading outside adds just the right pop of color to your winter ensemble.
Some other options include vintage broaches and fun handbags; the possibilities are endless! Use these tips and tricks and you won’t be resentful toward your closet this winter.
