I ask myself every morning while I am picking out something to wear for the day – “what can I wear that is cute and stylish but will also keep me warm and comfortable all day?” – It is a daily battle and constant struggle to actually dress like I know fashion and not to like a hobo in leggings and a sweatshirt. Do I want to look cute today and freeze my butt off or do I just want to wear an oversized sweater and be toasty warm all day?
Winter has been here for a couple of months and it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. (Sometimes it snows here on Easter) It’s important for me to actually have a wardrobe that is not all oversized knit sweaters and thermal leggings. You and I are fashion people we can’t just wear the same sweater every day. I am determined to still dress cute and be warm at the same damn time.
Here are some items that should be added to your winter wardrobe in order to stay warm and look stylish:
If you don’t know what a blanket scarf is, it is like a normal scarf that you wear around your neck, except that is 10x bigger. They can come in a variety of different fabrics, styles, and designs. They can be a solid color, plaid or tartan, have a floral pattern, or have pom poms sewn into it. A blanket scarf is a great way to instantly dress up an outfit. You can wear them on top of a sweater, dress, or blouse. They are like chunky warm blankets that actually look cute.
FAUX FUR COATS
We all may be tempted to dress like a giant Alaskan Eskimo during these blustery months. We have to remember that there are other coat options other than wearing a giant puff marshmallow coat. This season faux fur coats are in-style and fashionable. Thank god for these coats because they are so cute and will keep you warm while you’re outside. Also, you can practically wear them with anything and still look cute. Clothing stores all around have bestowed upon us faux fur coats that are in neutral tones or in fun colors. They are cuddly and warm and you’ll feel and look fabulous while you are wearing it. You can dress it up or dress it down simply by switching your sneakers for heels.
Did the UGG boots trend every really die? I know people who think UGG boots are the ugliest thing on the planet and think that they look like moon boots. I also know people that think they are a god sent meant to keep your feet warm during the frigid months. Personally, I love them and own 5 pairs.Boots, not just UGG boots are an absolute winter essential that belongs in your wardrobe. Ankle booties, calf high, knee high, over the knee boots, you need them all. They can be paired to match every outfit. The best part of wearing boots all winter long is that you can also wear fuzzy socks with them. No one will know that underneath your super cute boots you are wearing penguin fuzzy socks from Old Navy.
No one should have to give up looking stylish just because it’s freezing outside. Put together a collection of cuter knit tops and sweaters, wear fuzzy socks with your cute boots for an added level of warmth, layer on the blanket scarves and thermal leggings, and rock those winter boots all season long. It is possible to dress cute and stay warm at the same time, anyone that tells you differently is doing winter fashion wrong.
