Stylish Winter Attire
Winter means breaking out the warmer clothing to layer up against the cold. But this doesn’t have to mean you’re condemned to a season without style! Womens jackets don’t have to be frumpy, over sized, or unflattering. There are plenty of shapes, styles and cuts that can compliment your body, and your sense of style. Winter no longer means drab outer wear, now you have more options than every to express your personality with bold colors, fun patterns, and trendy embellishments.
Finding clothes that match your sense of style and flatter your body type at the same time can be difficult, but it makes the difference between looking good, and looking amazing. The same goes for winter coats, jackets, and sweaters. You may have to be layering up to venture out into the snow, but you can still look like you lost ten pounds with the right coat. This is all about tailoring. If you have a favorite blazer, you want it to fit you properly, same goes for you coat. A well tailored and form fitting coat can work wonders for the dull winter season. Here are some other key points you should consider when buying yourself a new winter coat.
Color: pick something bold! You don’t have to go with khaki, or muted colors just because the weather seems muted. Give yourself some color in this long winter weeks. Go with a solid kelly green, or a bold pattern such as houndstooth or paisley. Just like the summer months when you feel fabulous and energized because of your outfit, you can feel the same in Winter, when you’re most likely to need it!
Cut: depending on your body type, you will need to find a jacket that fits you in all the right places. There are cuts that hit just bellow the bust, and then taper out, which is called the “empire waist”, this is good for hiding the stomach. If you have a boyish figure, with few curves, you can accentuate your waist by getting a coat with a belt, or that has it’s tightest point at the natural waist. This creates the infamous hourglass shape.
Embellishments: these can work for you, or against you, so choose wisely. Things like double breasted buttons can make you appear wide, where lapels can balance out large hips and make the shoulders appear wide.
