Easy Ways to Spice Up Your Winter Wardrobe
The weather is only just starting to turn, and many of us are already bored with our winter wardrobes. If wearing the same chunky jumpers, coats, skinny jeans and boots combos for the next three months is stressing you out, you’re certainly not alone. When the weather is dull and grey, and especially when we’re limited with what we can do, who we can see and where we can go, the last thing we need is a boring wardrobe filled with dank colours, old jumpers and sensible choices.
Of course, you want to be comfy in winter. No one wants to slip on ice, even if they are wearing beautiful shoes, and you certainly don’t want to catch a cold, or anything more serious by not taking good care of yourself. But, there are plenty of ways to balance practical winterwear with stylish choices. Here are some of the easiest ways that you can spice up your winter wardrobe this season.
Add Statement Accessories
If you like to keep things warm and practical, and don’t want to shake things up too much in terms of your base layers and key pieces, accessories are your friend. Even the most sensible jeans and hoody combo can be given a fresh lease of life with statement Gucci bags.
SSENSE’s Gucci range offers everything from practical tote to bold crossbody, all sure to elevate your winter look. At SSENSE you will find a wide range of accessories and statement pieces to help you add some fun to your winter wardrobe, whatever you are looking for.
Splash the Colour
Many of us are guilty of gravitating towards dark shades in the winter. They are easy, they work with everything, and you never have to worry too much about what jumper you are layering over which dress, it all works. But it’s boring.
Don’t be scared to add splashes of colour with fun accessories, patterned boots and even bright, colourful coats, and a fun umbrella can be the perfect way to raise a smile on the most miserable of days.
Bold Hair and Makeup
If black is your colour, or while your inside layers are bright and colourful, but you prefer a dark, practical winter coat that works with all of your outfits, that’s fine. Adding pops of colour to scarves and accessories is great, but another option is being bold with hair and makeup.
A sweep of bright red lipstick is eye-catching on a winter’s day, and this is the perfect time of year to experiment with different hairstyles and colours.
Oversized clothing and accessories are great for wrapping up warm. They give you options, and they look cool and effortlessly trendy. A chunky oversized scarf is the ultimate winter accessory, and nothing says comfort and warmth more than an oversized jumper with skinny jeans or leggings.
Trust the Classics
Classics are classics for a reason. They are stylish and sophisticated and always look great. The winter wardrobe classics like peacoats, parkers and black biker boots transcend style to be eternally cool. Play with the classics by branching out with different colours or accessorising with scarves and broaches, but enjoy them.
Winter is grey and cold, but that doesn’t mean that your look has to be. Don’t be afraid to have some fun with fashion and try new things. Who knows, it could even help you to defeat the winter blues.
