Hey there lovelies!
We are deep into the winter months and that means cold temperatures and lots of hot chocolate! I figured there was no better time than the present to talk about my top 5 favorite winter fashion tips!
Layers are so important when it comes to staying warm in the winter. However, you don’t need to sacrifice your style choices because of the temp! The solution: Layering. Here’s a perfect example of a warm layering combo. First, Put on your main blouse. Second, Add a button-down shirt or something long sleeve! Third, throw on a jacket or cardigan, whichever fits your style. Lastly, finish off your look with warming pieces such as scarves, gloves, beanies, etc.!
Stick to the staples.
The best piece of advice I was ever given for winter styling is to stock up on the staples. It’s so much easier to plan your winter outfits accordingly when you keep a couple of basics in the closet! Examples of good basics to have on hand would be a thick coat, turtlenecks in neutral colors, and denim jeans! I love keeping a signature coat on hand because not only is it easy to pair outfits with, it keeps you warm, and isn’t that the goal anyway?!
Touchscreen Gloves for the busy woman
This is a tip not nearly enough people take advantage of. When it’s cold or worse yet, snowing, the last thing on your mind is going to be freezing your fingers off to respond to texts. However, sometimes, duty calls! Keep your claws warm by using smart gloves! These gloves are specifically designed to allow the heat from your fingers to register on your smartphone! Answer emails, make calls, all while staying warm and snuggly! Cold fingers are a thing of the past.
Wool Socks are a necessity!
Much like how you take care of your fingers by adding gloves, you should also care about taking the steps to keep your feet warm as well. Boots are a key component in any winter wardrobe, but what goes in them is just as important. Body heat escapes through your ears, hands, and feet. Keeping those covered is a fool-proof way to keep you smiling all winter! Wool socks are a necessity! They are thickly woven socks that keep the heat concealed within the sock. When you are wearing tall boots, opt for wool socks and feel the difference! Typical price range for wool socks is about $8-$12 per pair. While they are a little bit more expensive compared to regular socks, the quality is worth it.
Fleece Lined Leggings are your best friend!
Fleece-Lined Leggings are perfect for the above-mentioned tip, Layering! They are just like any other leggings except, of course, they are lined with fleece! This extra layer of fabric adds comfort and warmth. My favorite way to wear fleece-lined leggings is pairing it with a long sleeve top, adding a hoodie or thick sweater, then a jacket! The look will stay classy and YOU will stay warm!
