February 2017 Outfits

I know we still have a few days left in the month of February but I am feeling very proactive this year, and I know I won’t be featuring any more outfits this month, so here is a quick recap of the outfits I styled this February.

 

OOTD: Birthday in Milan

This look was my first outfit post. I wore this outfit on my birthday in Milan. The dress and the shoes are new wardrobe additions, and I have styled them in other outfits a couple of times now. I found the dress very comfy and warm. It kept me nice and toasty, I didn’t even need to pop on my jacket for most of the day.

I got the dress from Next, and the shoes by Kurt Geiger. The other outfit details are in the post, the link is above.

 

OOTD: Gucci Birthday Present

This outfit was also worn in Milan, and it is my favourite look this February. The sweater and bag are new wardrobe additions. I love the berry colour and the tie cuff design of the sweater. And this gorgeous bag is now my go-to bag. I love the entire look a lot.

I got the sweater from Next, and the bag is Gucci. You can grab the rest of the outfit details via the link above.

 

OOTD: A Spring Outfit

And here is the final look for the month. I wore this outfit some days ago. The weather is getting warmer, and on some days, I don’t need to have on my bulky winter jacket. This day was one of those days, and I hope the weather transitions to Spring quickly.

The t-shirt, flats and necklace are all new additions. I got the t-shirt and flats from a Mercedes-Benz store in Milan. The rest of the outfit details can be found in the outfit post, link above.

January Outfits 2017

January has been a month of outfits. I am glad to say I published 4 outfit posts this month. I am so happy I got to post this amount of outfits. I have started the year on style high, and I hope it continues all through the year. I lost my style mojo towards the end of last year, and I won’t want that to happen again.

Here is a quick recap of the outfits incase you missed them –

 

OOTD: A Beaded Black Dress

This was the first outfit post of the year and it is a great look. Give me a little black dress and heels anyday, and I am good to go.

I love the Next blazer too. I have that for a few years now, and it still looks as good as new.

 

OOTD: An Arabian Theme Outfit

This outfit took me out of my comfort zone kind of. I usually don’t wear kaftans, think I only have 2 kaftan pieces so far, including this piece. But I wanted one as a Dubai souvenir, and this green beauty caught my eyes. I fell in love with the design immediately.

 

OOTD: Oversized Jumper Look

I am super in love with this look. I love this Apricot jumper so much. The colour is pretty and fab for the season. And every other piece looks great. It is definitely one of my favourite looks of the month.

 

OOTD: The Oversized Trend and the Petite Woman

So I saved the best for last. This is my last outfit for the month of January, and it was monochrome all the way. I enjoyed styling this look. It was easy to style and bang on trend too. I love the look a lot.

How to Layer Like a Fashion Pro this Winter

When it comes to fashion, the way you layer your outfit is what will make you stand out from the crowd. This winter, there’ll be a lot of layering going on as the temperature keeps dropping. Layering will not only keep you warm but it will also make you look stylish, so long as you know how to do it right.

The trick behind layering your clothes like a fashion pro is knowing what type of clothes to place one over the other. Here is a breakdown of how you can layer this winter. With this guide, there’s no way you can go wrong.

 

Start off with a piece  that’s fitting and lightweight

Style Police

 

Layering starts from the inside out. One of the major fears of ladies when it comes to layering is looking bulky under all those clothes.  So if you see yourself looking bulky after layering, then the problem is from the first layer of clothing you have on.

To remedy this problem, start with a top that stays close to your body. That way whatever clothing you place over it will not make you look bulky. For example, your figure will show more if you wear sweater over a fitting blouse.

 

Let the first layer be a neutral colour then let the bright colours come afterwards

The colours you choose are very important. A rule of thumb is to make the first layer a neutral colour. When layering there’s a hierarchy of the colours you have to follow. White, beige and light blue are good colours to start with. The next layers can come in bright or dark colours like a navy blue jacket or a black sweater making your outfit more balanced.

For example a dark brown jacket over a beige blouse finished off with ruby-coloured earrings or necklace makes an amazing piece. The colours complement each other.

 

Mix in the different fabrics

Layering clothing items with the same kind of texture will make your outfit look heavy, monotonous and a bit overpowering.

Getting creative with the way you mix in different items will make your outfit more proportional. For example this winter you can wear a classic cotton collared shirt with a wooly cardigan over a pair of jeans. This way you have mixed cotton, wool and denim, thus creating a variety of textures on your outfit.

 

Vary the length of your outfits

Season Tweetings

 

Layering is all about maintaining the balance and keeping it stylish all through. The length of the clothes on each layer could change your whole look. But you need to keep in mind that in this case proportion is key.

How this works is to let the shorter items balance out the longer items. For example, a long coat over a short skirt will look flattering yet balanced, but a short jacket over a short skirt will make the outfit look out-of-place.

Following these layering tips will keep you looking stylish and toasty this winter.
