Cooler weather does not mean that you need to cover up with layers of drab or uninteresting winter clothing. Plan instead to add style with substance by wearing sophisticated winter clothing that need not necessarily burn a hole in your wallet. Buy winter clothing during sales or promotional periods to get value for money and make a list of items so that you can stay within your budget.
Pleasant shades of colour
There is no law against wearing pleasing colours in winter or rules that winter clothing must stick to browns, greys or black. You can combine soothing pastel shades for basic sweaters or wear a flowered or candy-striped scarf around the neck with a leather jacket in darker shades for a feminine touch.
Denim or Military Style Jackets
A winter wardrobe staple is a mid-length denim or military style jacket which is the current rage and is sure to be a classic addition to your wardrobe. These jackets can be combined with a woollen sweater, skinny jeans and ankle or mid-calf length boots for a chic look when you travel.
Blazers are the craze
Upscale your style quotient with blazers for winter workplace dressing. Blazers can be in large, medium or small checkered patterns, printed with flower patterns which is the current craze or plain depending on what you prefer. Team it with formal trousers and a plain shirt or sweater to match, for a smart sophisticated workwear style.
Sweaters for Casual Wear
Wear knitted sweaters with jeans or leather pants for those shopping or movie excursions with friends or family. Knitted round or polo-necked sweaters never go out of style and can be teamed with attractive earrings for a pretty and fashionable appearance.
Include jeans, leather or woollen trousers, leggings and tights for teaming up with your winter wear clothing. Skirts or cannot be ignored as you can add an ultra-feminine look by wearing a smart midi coat dress to work with tights and high heeled pumps to complete the look. An ankle or mid-calf length skirt is worn with a sweater or biker jacket and ankle boots can make you look stylish and chic. Trench coats are fashionable and a current trend which can be worn over dresses or pants.
Don’t forget to stock up your winter wardrobe with hoodies or sweatshirts for casual outings or walks and look trendy. Follow your own style instincts when selecting your winter wardrobe as you must feel comfortable as well as confident, whatever you choose to wear.
