What do you struggle with in the cooler months?
Maybe you struggle with the cold mornings and afternoons. Then you board the overheated public transport or office overdressed and begin to sweat because you totally got your wardrobe wrong that day! Knowing how to layer up is essential in any season. Here are some great tips to keep you stylish during the cooler months.
1. The key pieces you need in your wardrobe at the moment should be trans-seasonal. These are styles that can be worn on their own and layered back with those existing autumn styles you've loved wearing during this beautiful Melbourne weather.
2. With the cooler days were having, layer up in the morning and on the way home with a great trench. It's the perfect solution for this time of year. Choose a winter coat in a colour or texture that suits your 'Personal Style.'
Wondering what your 'Personal Style' is? Below I have mentioned my style categories and subcategories.
CLASSIC - FEMININE - CREATIVE - SPORTY - BOHEMIAN
Vintage/Retro - Country - Organic/Earthy - Contempory - Masculine - Minimalist
These are essentially creative descriptive words for the clothing you gravitate towards. It's great to know your style categories to keep you on track when making wise purchases.
3. A great pair of boots for the rainy days, not we have had many of those lately. Consider an ankle boot that is well fitted around the ankle and had a pointed toe. Both of these features will flatter your legs.
4. A great collection of coloured or textured scarves. Buying a new scarf to add to your collection can create a fresh way you look at your wardrobe. When choosing a new scarf make sure you purchase a different style, colour, size to your existing collection. Challenge yourself to a new look.
5. If you are a lover of Black, Black and more Black! Look for texture or detail to soften the harshness of the black against your skin especially in winter. Consider navy if you have fair skin.
Look for open necklines as they tend to be more inviting believe it or not. Dress how you wish to be perceived!
