Fashion – The Winter do’s & don’ts
Winter’s round the corner and the temperature is slowly dropping! But that doesn’t mean that you have to make the decision between being warm or looking good. These tips are for everyone from any gender to shapes and sizes! Therefore, here are my top go-to’s this winter!
Layering up can be difficult, however you just have to know how to do it.
Number one tip of layering up is to wear TURTLENECKS! Turtlenecks look cute whilst keeping you warm. An outfit idea for turtlenecks is wearing any colour underneath and then adding a stringy tops or short sleeved tops, also you could just wear the turtleneck and it’s enough.
However, don’t forget we live in the UK and layering up too much may leave you to regret it later on in the day! Therefore, wearing warm, fuzzy or big jumpers doesn’t necessarily mean you need a coat too! Just wear a long sleeved top underneath the jumper and you can show off your cute jumper without covering it with a coat! Scarves are also a cute accessory!
After November is definitely the time to begin whipping your big coats out! Long trench coats, faux fur coats and parker coats are some of the best ones. Unless you’re wearing something warm underneath then it’s better not to wear small denim jackets or raincoats (raincoats are better for spring because they’re not actually very warm). For trench coats neutral autumn colours are in this winter such as: green, auburn, beige, mahogany, mustard yellow and mauve. These are a few colours that are easy to match with the rest of your outfit!
It’s finally boots season! The moment everyone has been waiting for! Knee high boots, ankle boots, Chelsea boots, you name it! How to style them you may be wondering? Easy, these are a few tips on how to style. When using knee high boots try to maybe wear them with either skinny jeans, miniskirts or shorts. Sock boots are in and look the best with anything! Ankle boots luckily go with everything from being able to go to school or even to church if you prefer flats shoes in contrast to heels.
