Happy February! I can’t believe how quickly the first month of 2017 flew by. I’m actually really happy with how quickly January went by because I am not the biggest fan of cold weather. I love the springtime and I’m so looking forward to wearing spring clothes. Until then, I wanted to share my tips on how to look cute in the cold weather while still staying warm!
This past weekend I was in Chicago where it was FREEZING cold, but luckily I was prepared with a warm coat and accessories. When you live in a cold climate, I think it’s important to know how to stay warm while still looking cute. When I am going on a date with my husband or out with my friends, I don’t want to look frumpy in a big puffy coat. I want to look fashionable but I don’t want to freeze. I have come up with several tips on how to stay warm and look cute!
1. Find a warm and flattering coat
This first tip is very important! When you are dressing for cold weather but still wanting to look cute, find a coat that somewhat shows off your silhouette. There are many coats with waistbands and/or ties around the waist that show off your figure but still keep you nice and warm.
2. Wear a statement scarf
When you are trying to dress to impress in the cold, a statement scarf is just the thing you need! There are so many options of statement scarves but some of my favorites are plaid blanket scarves and fur stoles. Whatever you decide to wear, make sure it stands out.
3. Find Cohesive Accessories
One of the most important accessories to wear in cold weather is a hat. I am a huge fan of beanies, especially cute, feminine ones with a little pom pom at the top. Whatever hat you decide to wear, make sure it goes with the other accessories you pair it with- gloves, scarf, etc. You want there to be a theme with your accessories, but they don’t have to be completely matchy matchy. In my outfit pictured above, all of my accessories are in the blush pink, purple, and gray family. You want your whole look to be cohesive, but not identical.
4. Layer up
Underneath your jacket, make sure you are wearing a few layers. You can wear a long-sleeved shirt, turtleneck, sweater or vest under your coat. The more layers you wear, the warmer you will be.
5. Wear multifunctional boots
Not only are over the knee boots super on trend and fashionable, but they actually serve another purpose in the colder months! OTK boots add an extra layer to your legs and keep you super warm! While they won’t keep your feet as warm as snow boots would, they will provide an extra layer of warmth to your legs. If you are going out on the town, ditch the snow boots for one night and throw on some OTK boots! Just make sure to wear a thick pair of socks to keep your feet warm.
I hope these 5 tips are helpful to you! We still have about two months left of winter, so try out these tips while it’s still very chilly outside. We can only hope it will start warming up sooner than later.
