Style Advice of the Week

Winter is here and to a lot of people that means the dreariness has begun. Fear not Fashionistas, this doesn’t need to be the case! Although winter can be dull and gray at times that doesn’t mean your wardrobe needs to be too. Take this darling Fashionista for example. Her bright yellow winter coat shines like the sun and her orange pleated skirt is the perfect balance of cute and color. The Fashionista clad her legs in a pair of dark black tights to keep her warm, but otherwise the rest of her outfit was bright and fun!

Winter doesn’t mean that you have to stop being colorful, quite the contrary. There are tons of beautiful winter coats out there for you to choose from. If yellow feels a little too bright for you try a daring shade of red, like these from ModCloth. They will be sure to brighten even the saddest of winter days. When working with a bright coat like this, it is important that you keep your accessories fairly neutral. I would recommend investing in some great basics, like gloves, hats and a perfect circle scarf. Black would be the perfect accent to these lovely red coats. Try this circle scarf from Urban Outfitters to keep your neck warm during the coming months.

If the idea of a bright winter coat is too overwhelming for you, you can always choose a basic winter coat and amp up the rest of your outfit with some fun accessories. Try for a colorful beanie, like this bright one from Kenzo. You can even experiment with the color of your tights and try one of these fun shades from American Apparel.

Whatever approach you decide to take, don’t let the coming winter months suck the fun out of your wardrobe.
