Keeping Wonderful and Warm This Winter
The winter months are truly some of the hardest times to do your personal shopping. Not only are you navigating the holiday crowd, but you’re also struggling to find something to wear for a number of winter events. Dressing in the winter is difficult for a lot of us because we tend to prioritize our comfort and warmth over our sense of style. No one can really blame you, but what if I told you that you didn’t have to compromise your fashion sense for the sake of functionality? These style choices can work wonders for you in the winter, whether you’re shopping in Southpark or New York. With the right additions to your closet, you won’t have to be a personal stylist to create a memorable look!
The Classic Cardigan
One of the most difficult aspects of styling women’s clothing is the pressure to wear something extremely form-fitting that hugs your body. This obviously becomes more of a problem in the winter because of the number of layers you need to stay warm. One way to deal with this issue is to worry less about cinching the areas of your body and instead focus on creating an appealing silhouette. Any personal stylist can tell you, layering is less about fitting your form and more about creating a silhouette that is dynamic and great looking at every angle. For that reason, cardigans are a great item because we can add a light top layer and billow out to create a sense of movement and grace in your outfit. This kind of look becomes amplified when the cardigan hits below the waistline. Some great examples of exquisite cardigans are the Fifteen-Twenty Lightweight Cardigan or the Clara Sunwoo Soft Sweater Knit Long Sleeve Modern Cardigan. This navy Fifteen-Twenty cardigan creates a traditional look with classic trim on the sleeves and ends of the garment, as well as buttons. We can see in contrast how varied the style of cardigans can be from the more streamlined, geometric Clara Sunwoo. Keep this in mind when shopping, and don’t be afraid to try something textured or asymmetrical!
Sweaters with Unconventional Details
You may be thinking, “There’s nothing stylish or exciting about sweaters,” but they are truly an undervalued item in women’s clothing. When we talk about sweaters, we’re not referring to frumpy, formless pullovers. There are a number of sweaters that are sure to be eye-catching just from a few simple modifications. Sweaters that show off a plunging neckline can look extremely alluring. This is also true of sweaters that are off-the-shoulder, such as the Elan Clothing Off Shoulder Long Sleeve Sweater. When wearing something thick and bulky like a sweater, it’s important to create a balance in the weight of your silhouette. For example, a large sweater looks good with tight, body-hugging pants or leggings, and knee-high boots make for a great finish. Sweaters don’t have to be boring-it’s all about the accessories!
During the winter, you may feel understandably limited by your clothing options. Fret not, as winter shopping can be done with ease. We guarantee that you can find items like those we’ve suggested in an array of stores, from Florida to Southpark. By investing in a few simple garments and accessories, you can create a trendy winter look all your own!
