Bracing for the blitz of wild winter weather with coats, boots, hats, and scarves is rough stuff. It’s mostly treacherous time of year for letting your fashion style take a nasty slip and fall. But when adapting a fashionable trend into your wardrobe, it often helps to have some tips on what to avoid and what will work best. So, here are the do’s and don’ts for styling this winter.
DO pair ankle boots with a maxi skirt. It perfectly matches with the chunkiness of the ankle boot and it keeps your toes toasty. A pair of ankle boots will alsocoordinate with a dress.
DON’T wear a midi pencil skirt with ankle boots, as they simply aren’t meant to be paired together. Just keep your knee length business skirt away from your ankle boots!
If you need a scarf, DO experiment with knitted or woolen styles! These can provide an excellent texture to everything from a warm pea-coat jacket to a fitted blazer.
DON’T pair bulky scarves with a hefty down coat unless you want look like a repulsive snowoman!
DO get a jacket or coat in a neutral tone such as gray. The light-weight and warm accent of this tone will be your best friend, especially on frigid days.
DON’T be enticed by any pieces in white or pastel. It’s not a good idea and it’s only for sophistication, not a comforter.
When it comes to fashion, there are always dos’and don’ts. There are countless styles for winter 2014 that you can find for low prices and still look like a million bucks. Take these tips with you while shopping to look your best this winter. And remember, these are basic guidelines, because in fashion there are always exceptions to every rule.
