Our weather right now can best be described from the lyrics of Katy Perry’s song, Hot N Cold. You would think as a native Houstonian I would be used to it by now but not really. That’s the thing, it changes so much it’s so unpredictable. As I admire the snow bunny outfits and winter garb from afar, I try and give my warmer options a winterized (is that even a word?) look and you can too!
5 Tips for Winter Looks in the South
This is easy and efficient way to accomplish a warm look. Adding a simple layer like a vest can add a warmer look without the weight or warmth. Depending on the layered item, it can take you from day to night as the temperature drops.
2. Add winter accessories
A felt hat is a great way to add a winter flair and create a different look for your outfit. Other easy items to add can be a scarf, puffer vest, and anything with fur!
3. Use Caplet or Poncho instead of a Coat
Caplets are one of my favorite garments because you can have an additional layer and not be so warm. The openness of caplets and ponchos allow your body to breath but still create a warmer style.
This one seems so obvious but you would be surprised that sandals are really worn year-round. A simple way to create a warmer look is to change your shoes to boots/booties, wear a velvet shoe, or something with fur. This can make a world of a difference.
5. Colors and Materials
Colors and materials are the easiest way to change looks. This is becoming more difficult as the rules of fashion change. White can be worn year-round and suede is no longer reserved for the cold months so there are some gray areas. Some materials that will continue to stay on the winter side are tweed, corduroy, wool, and leather.
We are lucky that winter doesn’t cover up our wardrobe. It’s a time to accessorize and layer for styling. Hope this give you some outfit inspo for your next Winterized look!
