For a lot of people, winters means that time of the year, when your sole aim should be to wear layers of clothes and concentrate only on keeping warm. For them, this is that time of the year, when you need not be bothered about fashion, because the ultimate aim should be staying warm at all times. However, there is also that set of people, who consider fashion important, irrespective of the weather outside. It is for such people that winters often become a problematic time of the year, because many a times for them, fashion comes at the cost of falling ill.
What a lot of people do not realise is that staying fashionable even during the winter months is not all that tough – all you need is a little creative thinking and an open mind. As a matter of fact, with just a few new pieces in your wardrobe, you should be able to create multiple new looks for the winters and even rock at weddings or special events with ease.
Here is what you need to do first:
Look through your wardrobe and locate pieces that you can wear during the winters. This would include top wear that has long sleeves or has been made using material that will work well for the cold months. This could range from tops and tunics to kurtas, kurtis and shirts. You should look for thicker cotton, wool and denim like materials, because these are better are providing warmth and insulation for the body.
Step two would be to look at the lowers that you will be able to utilise for the winters – jeans would be the most obvious choice, but you can always look for trousers, leggings and even skirts. While most people would think that jeans, trousers and leggings are sensible choices, many would wonder about using skirts at this time of the year. However, if you are willing to experiment, you could always team your skirts with dark coloured tights or leggings and this will offer you style as well as comfort.
Now, here is what you will need to shop to make sure that your wardrobe is prepared for the winters:
The one thing that you will need to invest in would be some warm clothes, such as sweaters and jackets. Your creative eye and your style sense will come into play here, because you can look for smart jackets and sweaters that you will be able to mix and match with your existing outfits. Choose jackets and sweaters in neutral colours, as these will work with more outfits. Black, navy blue, grey, beige and white will work great and you can also play with the lengths of the jackets.
You will need to invest in some colorful and warm stoles, as these are a great way to keep warm and add style to the outfit. Stoles work really well with not just Indian style attires, but also jeans and trousers. As a matter of fact, if you are wearing a monochromatic outfit, a stole is a great way to add colour.
This is also a good time to invest in some good footwear such as boots – these days, you will be able to find boots of varying lengths, colours and heels. Choose ones that will work with the outfits you have and while you can play around with the heel length, make sure that you pick colours that you will be able to use more than once!
