Hello there fashion-forward friends! The reason why winter is my least favorite is because of the cold. Here in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area, winter gets pretty brutal. One day it could be close to 60 degrees, but for the next week it’ll be -10 degrees. With those conditions, it’s hard to stay stylish when you’re more focused on being warm. So here are a few tips based on my Fashionista’s attire on how to remain fabulous and not frumpy during the harsh winter season.
For one, sweaters are your best friend. Sweaters are great because you can layer them or wear them solo and still look cute while being comfortable. My Fashionista is wearing a classic black sweater, which is easy to layer with undershirts or scarves or anything because black is classic. For this look, a scarf was layered on top, and this scarf matched perfectly with the tan socks worn to layer the boots. Layering boot socks over blue jeans is quickly becoming super popular this season, and it’s understandable why. It’s warm but it adds a new dimension onto a look. The boots themselves are a classic ankle boot with a heel, but what’s unique about them is there is a bit of red on the back, which matches perfectly with the accent color within the scarf.
Another thing to remember about the winter is simple is key. If you layer too much, when you go inside to a heated space you’ll burn up. Plus who really wants to overdo a look when that isn’t your top priority. To keep it within the simple theme, my Fashionista is only wearing a watch for jewelry. This watch actually has a story to accompany it. The watch was her grandmother’s who recently passed away. My Fashionista mentioned that even before her grandmother passed she would wear it, even though it didn’t work. Therefore, my Fashionista wears it all the time because of how sentimental it is to her.
There you have it. To remain stylish and warm remember important elements: sweaters, scarves and simplicity. Stay warm my fashion-forward friends.
