Top tips on changing your wardrobe to survive this winter
Along with the much-needed extra hour of sleep we’re given as the clocks change this winter, is also the beginning of darker days and colder nights. The best way to survive this frosty weather is by switching up the wardrobe and bringing out the hats and scarfs. It can certainly be daunting to make the change from loosely fitted, breezy summer wear to thick socks and woollen jumpers and it can often be tricky to know exactly how to style an outfit while keeping warm, especially while trying to tackle the challenge of the unpredictable British weather. Here are some top tips on stylish ways to stay cosy this winter.
A turtleneck goes a long way
A high neck jumper or top can be a perfect way to add an extra layer of warmth whilst also working as a fashionable addition to any winter outfit. With a multitude of colours and fabrics to pick from, your choices are almost endless and make picking out an outfit an easy quest. Turtleneck tops can be paired with skinny jeans, mom jeans and even flairs. You can opt to make a statement by picking a bright colour such as an autumnal orange to contrast with dark jeans. Polo necks also look great under corsets and this is another way to incorporate contrasting colours into your style. Another option is pairing a ribbed high neck top with a cute skirt – your best choices are plaid or corduroy – this can look great with some warm tights and a pair of block heels or boots.
The thicker the better
Ditching thin airy materials for thick fabrics like wool is the best way to keep the breeze out and the warmth in. Wearing a comfy woollen jumper can ease the harshness of a cold night. Insulated feather jackets are also a great option for keeping warm and to make it even better they are very lightweight so can be a great addition to any outfit. Wearing a scarf can be another great way to keep warm, it can be used to cover your face, wrap around your shoulders or just to add an additional layer.
Keeping warm head to toe
The best way to stay warm in this cold weather is by keeping the heat in and wearing a hat. Hats can be styles to fit with most outfits and are a great accessory that keeps you nice and snug. There are plenty of options to pick from, including berets, flat caps and beanies. Once your head is warm you need to keep your toes toasty too, so make sure to wear a cosy pair of boot socks, even better if they match your hat! If socks aren’t your style then tights can match perfectly with most outfits and give you lots of options for shoes, such as boots, trainers and women’s heels.
Switching nights out for nights in
Putting the dresses, shorts and vest tops away to bring out the winter pyjamas and spending the evening curled up on the sofa can be a perfect way to end a winter day. However, if you still want to enjoy your nights out, staying warm is still possible by incorporating your “night in” clothes. For example, wearing soft fur coats and velvet trousers, comfy and warm like pyjamas but stylish and perfect for a night out.
Although for some people layering up for winter can make it difficult to create a stylish look, it’s possible to stay warm and look fashionable at the same time. There’s no need to sacrifice either this winter you can look amazing while staying cosy and warm at the same time.
