Kids chanting “trick or treat” and Macy’s putting up a Christmas display proving, once more, that is truly is the most wonderful time of the year all point towards the same conclusion – winter is coming.
Along with the light casual jacket added to your fall ensemble and switching the iced lattes for steaming hot caramel macchiatos, it’s time to prepare for those events booked in the calendar that are due to take place during the colder months of the year.
As the days become shorter, our clothes become longer. Here are our top tips for dressing for the occasion (and season) without having your fashion sense pay a hefty price:
1. The Heavier The Better
Pulling off velvet during the summer is not only a big no-no in terms of fashion statements, but it is also a not very breathable fabric that would probably make you sweat profusely.
For this reason, cooler seasons are your chance to try out wool and velvet. Heavier fabrics also assist in creating beautiful silhouettes, in addition to keeping you warm.
2. Top Coat Makes A Huge Difference
A coat with a statement is one that could either make or break an outfit entirely. If you’re wearing a simple black dress with reasonable hemline but still want to pop out in the crowd, a well-paired coat could dazzle up the overall look.
3. Dare (Not) To Be Bare
A midi or full-length dress may hide those well-toned legs under layers of fabric, but if you have your heart set on that mini that shows off just enough skin while still remaining classy, balance the flirtier number with some light stockings. A little extra coverage could go a long way, especially since they could add a little sheer magic to your best physical asset.
