While many people lament the arrival of winter due to shortened days, icy road conditions, or elevated heating bills, others dread the oncoming winter season for just one reason: bulk. While warmth is important, many of us hate the accompanying bulky clothes that replace our beautiful flowing, breezy silks and cottons of the warmer months. Fortunately, with a little care, women’s winter fashion can be just as hot as any summer look.
While summer appeal can be all about showing off curves and maybe flashing a little skin, winter looks need more planning to pull off the same degree of attractiveness. However, that doesn’t mean that winter fashion has to be unattractive.
In fact, the solid, structured lines of winter fashions can add a level of class that more revealing summer wear can’t quite pull off, and can even hide certain problem areas, such as a bulgy tummy or soft upper arms, that are difficult to conceal in lighter summer clothes.
Winter boots don’t need to be big, unsightly things. There is no end of variety in the selection of women’s winter boots, from knee high heels, to a sturdy, practical walking boot. Paired with a warm pair of hand knit socks in fun and funky colors, your lovely feet will keep you smiling through the cold.
There is nothing like a well structured wool jacket to add both warmth and beauty to a fall or winter outfit. The structure of the jacket will erase any undesirable bulges, and the natural wool fabric will both breathe well and insulate, making it the perfect winter outerwear.
The wool jacket can then be played up or down with accessories, and this is where the fun begins. For a classic look, a knit beret and matching gloves are hard to beat. For a fun, funky look, try playing with bright colours or funky hat shapes, even with pompoms or tassels.
Need to run to the store for milk on a Saturday morning? No problem! A winter hat serves a double purpose of keeping the head warm and hiding nearly any bad hair day issues you could name. Not only that, a soft, fluffy winter hat will flatter nearly any face shape, adding a soft romantic look and protecting you from wind chill in one fell swoop.
