It’s that time of the year where I begin to grow tired of the same winter clothing day in and day out. As much as I love my sweaters and booties, I’ve reached the point where I feel like I have NOTHING to wear! We’ve all been there right? Closet stock full of winter essentials, you scour Pinterest and Instagram for ideas of how to change up your look, but somehow what you currently own will never look like that Parisian model’s street style look. SAME. That’s why today I’m bringing you my top three tips for upgrading your winter look with items you already have in your wardrobe.
One // Add Pops of Color
While monotone neutrals are very much in, jazz up your outfits with a pop of color or print. My personal favorites in this new year include red, blush pink or leopard print statement items. In fact, we’re seeing these colors everywhere as of late as the statement colors of choice among those at New York Fashion Week happening right now. Seen in the form of accessories, sweaters and jackets, use these pops to brighten up your gray winter days!
Two // Mix & Match
Take some of your favorite pieces from other seasons to pair them with your weather appropriate items et voila! A winter weather ready match made in heaven. Have you been dying to wear that midi skirt you couldn’t resist, but cooler temps won’t allow it? Layer it with your favorite chunky knit sweater and boots. What about a cute lace cami you can’t wait to wear? Pair it with a wool blazer and dress it up for work with trousers, or down for girls’ night out with your favorite pair of jeans. Get creative with it!
Three // Layers, Layers, and More Layers
Not only is layering on-trend, but more layers will keep you warm during chilly days. I’m notorious for layering oxfords and flannels with a chunky knit sweater or cardigan, but I’ve been looking for different ways to switch up my style with this look. Throwing on an over-sized blazer over this look or adding a statement coat is one way to rock the layered look! Try doing this with your accessories, as well; layered necklaces and scarves are a great way to heighten any look!
