When the seasons change, the weather starts to get colder, and everything looks like doom and gloom outside, it can be easy to resort to wearing boring outfits as inspiration all but disappears.
Whilst summer fashion signals effortlessness and a certain easy breezy carefree quality, winter fashion generally means embracing the cold – the more we can pile on the better. At this time of year layering quickly becomes a necessity, and our usual stylish tips and trick go out the window.
More layers does mean a whole lot more outfit options, and who doesn’t want that? But I get it, knowing what to wear and how to put an outfit together at this time of year can be hard. Below are some of my tips for cold weather dressing that I hope will make your life a little bit easier.
TIPS FOR COLD WEATHER OUTFIT IDEAS:
– Instead of packing away all of your summer clothes as soon as the temperature starts to drop, keep hold of a few layering pieces you can intertwine with your autumn/winter wardrobe.
– Something that lifts my spirits at this time of year is injecting splashes of colour into my wardrobe, whether that be via a colourful accessory (eg hat or scarf) or a fun jacket and jean or skirt combo. I also love bright or patterned tights!
– Invest in a few different coats that you’ll be able to wear year after year. A trench, a puffer jacket, a faux fur option – having a few different styles for every occasion means you’ll never be stuck for something to wear. A statement coat is also a good focal point of an outfit.
Being sensible when getting dressed at this time of year goes without saying, so does paying attention to your local weather forecast so you know what to expect when you venture outside.
Even during winter’s darkest days, you can still have fun with your outfits as long as you’re prepared. Just think a little more creatively!
