Your teeth are chattering and icicles are hanging from your nose like a Hanna Barbera cartoon – the winter weather is on its way and it’s time to sort your wardrobe for the season.
Indeed, we’re in that awkward limbo of autumn, where some of us are still wearing summer clothing like it was the height of the sunny season. Wrapping up is obviously the best strategy, but you don’t want to run the risk of looking lumpy, frumpy and unfashionable-umpy. Yet winter fashion doesn’t have to look as naff as a granddad attempting to jitterbug to dubstep. With the right choices warm clothing can be as stylish as you make it.
With that in mind, we’ve come up with a few tips to make you look great all winter long. From major fashion label choices to top tips, we’ve got all you need to make the chilly season a couture wonderland.
Knitted and perfectly fitted
Back in the olden days, knitwear was the preserve of blue-haired grannies, fusty librarians and five-year-olds who had been made to wear knitwear by their blue-haired granny.
So let’s thank our lucky stars that we’re living in different times. Now women’s knitwear is hotter than the core of the sun – and you’ll find it in all decent clothes providers. We’ve chosen this store as our favorite, particularly because of the vastness and versatility of its range. With this plus-sized clothing, you’ll enjoy knitwear for all occasions. From scarves to cardigans to shrugs, you won’t struggle to find an ideal outfit from their site.
Trying to make your outfit for the summer by hand is pretty ill-advised unless you’re a clothes crafting prodigy. But in the wintertime, a few handmade sections of your outfit can provide you with some fantastic homespun style.
Crafts like scarf-making are easy ways to pass the time, and you could have a fantastic accessory at the end of your toil. For our money, website Knitting Help is one of the best repositories of knitting patterns and designs to help inspire you.
A neatly made scarf, gloves or broach is perfect to offset any outfit – and keep you toasty in the cold.
Tilda Swinton, Ellen Page. It’s official – androgyny is in fashion in a BIG way this year. More women are wearing suits like they were Grace Jones in the 80s, and looking swisher than a Rolex driving a Ferrari down Sunset Boulevard.
For optimal comfort, get yourself to a tailors for a great fit. You’ll look uber-fashionable and feel amazing.
