‘Tis comes the season of joy and snow! December is filled with such warm, happy vibes, even though the outside world is freezing up and getting colder and colder. Being fashionable during this harsh winter time is a task indeed, and a very big one I must say. For some, this is the time where you pull your best huge bomber jackets out that are even bigger than you.
Some can style themselves in the wintertime because they look forward to that the entire year. But for some, this can be a daunting task. Why would you want to look your most fab self when all you want to do is layer yourself in hoodies and sweatshirts inside your cosy warm blanket? Well, you must look your best! Fashion in winter is a chance for one of the most stylish outfits to be shown to the world.
Each season brings about new possibilities. In summer, we cannot wait to bring about the airy sundresses with sunglasses and SPF. Spring calls for colour and fun styling, but winter and autumn just hits differently. Every season, you get a chance to revamp your wardrobe and elevate your style further. There’s something about cool and crisp autumn air and about freezing winters that opens up so many options.
But what do you do when the season of fall ends and you cannot go with the red warm tones and look cute anymore? Well, you can still look cute! So, this forthcoming cold weather should not be an excuse to not look as fashionable as ever!
But wait, how do you do that? What are some things you need to take care of? Today I have got for you everything covered in one: winter wardrobe essentials, winter clothing hacks, tips on styling and some popular winter fashion styles to pull off!
Winter Wardrobe Essentials
Get shopping’ for winter, the most fun time of the year! I will also talk about the best tips around the world on how to keep your winter clothing safe, how to keep them clean and some of the best hacks on how you can literally save your clothes for longer, quality usage!
Winter Clothing Hacks
Hacks you need to get by with some tricky winter weathers. These hacks will save you from ruining your winter clothes, help you stay warm and make sure you’re doing everything right! Here are the top 5 hacks you need this winter (and every other winter that comes!)
This may be a funny one, but it definitely works. Sometimes when you have to get ready for an event and wear new clothes in winter, they are very cold and it can be a daunting task to wear them. Hack? Blow-dry your clothes, make sure you let the hot air inside the pants. It can be so easy to wear clothes after. It is so much better than wearing those painfully chilly pants!
Often with winter shoes, it is a difficult task to get the dirt off from them. Simply tear a piece of stale bread and rub it over the stains. It can get a little messy so make sure you have something beneath the shoe. This hack gets the dirt off in no time!
Often times, you can fold leather pants or shirts like other normal clothes. That’s a mistake. Leather can get awful creases very fast. Always hang your leather clothing. In that hanger too, put tissue paper or some small cardboard pieces to protect the leather from the hanger clamp indents.
People usually grab gloves to prevent their hands from freezing, but that often does not work. Mittens keep your hands warmer, as they have skin to skin contact. Gloves get wet fast if you’re near snow and make it difficult to hold things. Mittens also make it difficult to do things with your fingers. Another option could be getting double knit or fleece-lined gloves, those are better than simple gloves too.
This one’s my personal favourite! It would be wise to wear another layer on, like some tights or warm leggings before wearing your pants. This won’t work if your pants are really skinny or tight, but you can always fit them. This hack helps so incredibly to save your skin from the freezing cold. You can wear workout pants under your sleepwear too because this hack works everywhere!
The best ever top 5 tips on styling winter clothes
Winter is that time of the year where you have to become a layering pro. It’s a lifestyle every winter because nothing else will stop you from shivering in this chilly season but effective layering.
I am going to tell you how you can layer yourself without piling everything on top and not being able to sit or look normal. The first thing to know about layering is that you don’t have to be afraid of the piling of clothes. There’s a way to not let it ruin your whole look. And that key is to find warm items you can layer under the trendier or stylish pieces. This means you are now warm, and still look cute!
Get very thin but warm nylon vests, it can be any colour. You can wear them under any tee-shirt. Then you can easily put on sweaters, or jackets to complete the statement winter look. A down jacket or warm sweater is always worn under that hides behind that one chic statement street style worthy coat. The last hack of layering with tights and leggings for pants works here too! Make sure that you are not feeling too overburdened by lots of layers. There should be a breathable balance. Layering is the best practical solution to the winter chills!
Over-the-knee boots are here to save this winter yet again. Even if your winter outfit doesn’t really make sense, let it make sense with knee high boots. Let them show themselves off. And of course, ankle boots for the win! A perfect finishing look for every outfit you can think of. Style them for a casual day out with any tee shirt and a cute pair of jeans. Get cuffed jeans with a pretty cashmere sweater. Every winter cloth loves boots!
Investing in one knee high boot and one ankle boot is a definite must. There needs to be some practical pairs of shoes for winter too, which you would not normally be worried about getting dirty or creasy. There are many styles for boots which you can look for. Some have faux fur; some are shiny and some are pure leather. Some have stickers, some are pretty basic. Whatever style attracts you, get it! Winter is the only time for them to shine! Revamp your outfits and never go out with a dull outfit again!
This style tip is pretty genius. I have talked about how useful and necessary coats or blazers are. You are going to need these few staple pieces in winter so much that you are going to have to wear them almost every day. Especially if you do not have many versatile styles. What would you do now to revive them, even if they are not dulling your mood? Belts!
You add a belt on that coat and give it a new life! It is time to define your silhouette and show off your waist! It will look so chic, and it will look like you got another cool coat when it’s actually the same! Isn’t that cool?
Also, this isn’t just for those basic coats you wear. You can do this with your jackets, like buffer jackets or puffer coats! When someone wants to experiment and change their look, they go all out and I love it! You can check for coats without buttons too, and often making sure you have a good colour combination adds a completely new revamp! So many possibilities, so little time!
The coming of winters also brings rise to the using of – you guessed it! Faux Fur! This season means you finally have a chance to wear faux fur and look your most royal, chic self. It adds such a major luxe vibe to your outfit and the fact that faux fur looks good on almost any winter clothing item, from scarves, jackets, coats to even boots! This is the time to have fun with it and pair the clothes to see how you want to wear it!
Eskimo style coats add so much style and vibe and, they are super cosy and warm. What more do you need? There are faux fur mittens too if everything else seems like too much fur too!
Scarves are the best thing about winter time. (Yes I say that about almost everything, it’s okay, it’s winter). But it is true. Scarves have never looked so good as much as they have looked good in winter. They add another layer that doesn’t need to be hidden, but it instead adds way more into an outfit. Especially with its different designs and textures. Plus, they are warm and soft. It’s a win really. They are really clothing pieces as well as accessories. They are ALSO layering pieces. You can even have faux fur scarves. What’s NOT to like? There’s so much possibility!
They look super chic, modern and decent! Lightweight scarves are also winning this winter because sometimes you tend to overburden yourself with thick heavy scarves. The best thing is that they’re as warm as thick ones too. It’s time to take a look at your winter closet, take out all the scarves and start wearing them again. Wear them around your neck, wear them on your shoulders like a drape or just tie them on your bag in case you need them. That’s a cool look in itself too!
Yes, it is freezing out, but you want to look your absolute best. All you have to do is get thinking creatively and get the fashion going. This is no time to ditch any coats and trendy jackets. Instead, get more warm blanket scarves, or faux fur scarves that prevent the chilly air to reach your skin. There are some very iconic winter fashion style looks and ideas to try, like all black leather for an edgy look, a dark academia fashionista look, or a decent graceful clean look with a white cashmere sweater, khaki statement coat and hot brown ankle boots!
So yes! Great style is very possible this winter. All you have to do is be prepared, and I hope that this information-packed winter styling guide has given you the inspiration you needed. Embrace your inner snow queen, let your winter fashion take the win – and yes, stay warm and safe!
