Five Ways to Still Look Cute in the Middle of Winter
When it comes to dressing for winter, it’s sometimes hard to figure out what’s nice to wear and what’s not. You want to be stylish, yet at the same time you don’t want to be too warm, or, even worse, freezing cold. No one wants to walk around wearing baggy sweatshirts, multiple layers of pants, or an ugly winter jacket just to stay warm, but sometimes that’s all a girl has! To help you make the most of what you have, here are five tips and ideas on how to use what you currently own and what you can invest in that will have you looking cute all winter long and for seasons to come!
1. The Basics
Layering tops is one of the most basic things a girl can do during the winter. Whether it’s wearing a t-shirt over a thermal top or a dolman top over a basic long sleeve shirt, layering can dress up any shirt you have. Wearing layers is great because it allows you to use what you have in your closet, without having to purchase extra items. If you don’t have any basic long sleeve shirts to wear, you can easily find them at Target, Walmart, and most department and specialty clothing stores. Another good thing about layering is that you can dress these shirts down with a pair of classic dark wash jeans and boots or you can dress them up even more with a pair of black or brown trousers and heels.
A warm coat is something every girl needs to look good while outside. Since a coat is the first thing most people see when out and about during the snowy months, it’s important to pick the right one. Here is a list of three different styles that have proven to be long lasting and classic fashion trends. These coats can make any girl look pretty (and feel nice and warm!) during winter.
The peacoat is such a classic; it never goes out of style. With various lengths and styles out there for girls to choose from, there is a coat for everyone! Peacoats are great to wear because they go with any kind of ensemble and they add the perfect hint of style when out on the town. Whatever the color or style you choose, these coats can dress any outfit up!
A trench coat is great to have for formal occasions, whether it’s Christmas with the family, New Year’s Eve with friends, or even for work. When paired with a skirt or dress, the trench adds sex appeal, while when paired with a pair of dress pants or jeans, it adds sophistication. Wear a bright colored scarf underneath and you get the perfect pop of color!
Knit coats are a great thing to have because they keep you warm and, like the trench and peacoat, there are several styles to choose from. These coats are light weight, but can keep you warm. These coats can easily dress anything up whether it’s those lazy sweatpants and hooded sweatshirt, casual denim jeans and sweater, or dress pants and dressy top.
Another simple way to add style and look cute this winter is with the boots you wear. When out on the town, it is great to wear classic black knee high boots. These boots go great with skinny jeans or dresses and help protect your feet from the elements. (One hint: if wearing a suede pair of boots, it is best to weather proof them so they don’t get damaged.) Another thing to note: all season winter boots never go out of style, especially when trudging through the newly fallen snow.
4. Cold Weather Accessories
Complete your look with cold weather accessories, such as a hat, gloves, mittens, or scarf. Adding the perfect scarf underneath a peacoat can give the perfect amount of color and style to your outer appearance. When considering what kind of accessories to complete your ensemble with, take a good look at what you’re wearing underneath the coat and what kind of coat you plan on wearing.
For the girls who’d rather be on the mountain top skiing, snowboarding, or just having fun in the snow, rather than strutting around the city, here are a couple tips on how to look cute. One way to look great is to wear a quality puffer or down jacket. The less bulky the jacket, the more agility you will get when boarding or skiing. Also, when hitting the slopes, keep your eyes protected from the glare with a pair of high quality, glare free goggles.
