One thing that has stood out for me a lot is how around this time of the year is we all seem to be in dire need of (new) winter clothes, If you’re like me, I have this burning desire to look super cute and stylish in winter and almost every year I tend to just revert back into hibernation because I never seem to be fully prepared. You think you have all the time to save and make those purchases when the time is right but you find yourself disappointed with the measly amount that you have laying right in front of you. Now the main stress comes in , How do I make the most of what I have? My favorite thing to do in winter is mixing my summer outfits with my winter ones, playing around with items and seeing what look I can pull off whilst still keeping warm.
Although it is not something new, Vogue and Harpers Bazaar have all suggested it countless times over the past few winters and that is to incorporate bright colors into your winter closet. In a time where androgynous and monochrome inspired outfits are the staple, stepping out of your comfort zone this winter could save you that extra buck all the while making you stand out in the crowd.
I’m not shy when it comes to playing around with color, I love finding what suits me and works best for me. I tend to find that I like splashes of bright colors and incorporating that into my winter looks . Ways you could effortlessly do this is by adding either bright accessories, shoes or handbags. Adding splashes of color to your outfit by throwing on a coat or sweater whilst keeping the rest of your outfit with slightly darker tones to balance it out ( you not trying to look like a rainbow )
As I always say with fashion, you need to have fun with it and most importantly be comfortable because that always makes or breaks the whole outfit!
