With the colder weather approaching for most people, staying warm and cozy yet still being fashionable is on many women’s minds. Here are some tips for having a cozy and comfortable style this winter.
Everyone loves bulky, warm wrap sweaters. They are the ultimate for lazing around on the couch. However, if you think these comfy tops are relegated to only going with sweat or lounge pants, think again and try a pair of leggings. Because they are tight fitting and stretchy, leggings give you a lean look that balances out the bulky sweater on top. Even celebrities like Rihanna wear bulky sweaters with chic boots, leggings, and a waist-slimming belt. For your thinner knits and cardigans, layering them together will achieve the same warmth with style. The only rule is to keep your knits in a similar color scheme so they don’t clash.
Vogue recommends, “When the temps turn freezing, nothing sounds more appealing than putting on your favorite pair of jeans and an ultra-long grandpa cardigan.” To avoid looking shapeless, try rolling the hem of your jeans up and pairing them with boots. This allows your legs to looks slimmer and as Vogue states, “You get to show off your favorite winter boots!” Packing away my summer wardrobe is one of the hardest things for me to do each year. Especially my flowy skirts and dresses. To get more out of your wardrobe, try pairing these lighter items with your sweaters, coats, and tights. This method works remarkably well if you pick non-seasonal colors like black, white, and brown.
Heavy coats are often a necessity when the winter winds whip everything into submission. Unfortunately, coats can make the wearer look large and frumpy. To balance out the heaviness of your coat, pair it with slim jeans. Cameron Diaz models this looks with tight quilted boots and a sleek bag as well to keep the look slim rather than large. Instead of an ordinary winter hat, consider trying something trendy and fun instead, like a fedora. This will draw attention to your face while still keeping you comfy and cozy.
