How to Dress Warm without a Coat

This post is all about how to dress warm without a coat. I find styling to keep warm for the cold weather sometimes tricky. It can be difficult to combine warm pieces to keep warm and looks stylish at the same time. And sometimes, the coat seems to cover all the hard work spent styling the outfit.

Although I always love a challenge when it comes to styling clothes, it’s normal to face some hitches here and there. Over the years, after experiencing a good number of extremely cold winters, I have been able to perfect the art of styling for the cold.

You may think it’s impossible to look amazing and still be warm without putting a coat on but today I’m going to share with you a couple of my hacks that will help you look stylish in the cold without wearing a coat.

 

The chunky sweater

Chunky sweaters are really cute and are now the favourite in the world of fashion this season. What’s great about them is that they not only make you look trendy, but they’re also warm enough to wear outside without putting a coat on. That’s a double win.

To help flatter your figure and balance out the proportions of your outfit, wear the chunky sweater over skinny jeans. This will help balance out the chucky nature of your sweater.

The oversized cardigan

This is one of my favourites. It’s warm and in vogue as well. There’s something about the oversized cardigan that gives it a lot of charm to your outfit during the cold winter days.

Just like the chucky sweater, you get the best out of styling with the cardigan when you keep balance in mind. Since the cardigan is big, you should style it with something that will flatter your shape. Wear a top that is fitting and you can use a nice pair of skinny trousers to complete the look.

The sweatshirt

Another clothing item that guarantees warmth and style is the sweatshirt. You can’t never go wrong with a mid-thigh length sweatshirt during the cold. Sweatshirts are thick and they are sure to keep you warm when you go outside and you don’t have to worry about compromising style.

Aside from styling it with something that will maintain the concept of balance like a pair of jeans or tights, you can take it further by layering your sweatshirt over with a long lose fitting collared shirt. Allow the collars of the shirt fold over the neck of the sweatshirt. You can play around with colours of the shirt to add some contrast to your outfit.

A little reminder…

As effective as the pieces I mentioned are to keep you warm during the cold, I felt that it would be important to mention that you should make sure that you wear something warm inside as well. Get an inner shirt or blouse you can wear underneath to help keep you warmer.

You can also try wrapping a scarf around your neck to keep you warm. The good news is that scarves never go out of style.

Make sure you wear a pair of long stockings under your trousers or jeans to keep your legs warm too.

OOTD: Winter Jacket

When it comes my outerwear, especially a winter jacket, I like to spend a bit extra to ensure I get a quality piece. There is nothing more annoying, than discovering you need a new winter jacket, months after getting a new one. I like my outerwear to last for as long as possible, so I don’t go for the cheap brands. I rather spend a bit more on a quality jacket, that will last for some years. And this beauty right here looks the part!

I got this stunning winter jacket some days ago and I adore it. In this jacket, I am ready for whatever the weather brings in this beauty. This W Blume Jacket comes in 4 shades – black, white, blue and green. I went for black because my old winter jacket is blue, and I wanted 1 in a different colour. Plus black can be worn with anything, which is great!

Dressing for your Body Shape this Winter

Dressing for your body shape takes time to slay, regardless of the season. You have to understand the ins and outs of your body shape, in order to dress it properly. Here are three tips you may find handy when dressing for your body shape this winter.

 

Dressing for your body shape with coats and jackets

It is getting chilly in Cheshire, so the winter jackets will be making appearance soon. When it comes to winter jackets, my advise is to spend a little bit extra so you are sure the winter jacket is a quality piece. You will be wearing a winter jacket every time you step out during winter, so it makes sense to take your time and shop for quality pieces. A wool or cashmere jacket will last year after year.

It is best to avoid boxy styles, as they tend to make you look frumpy  Instead, opt for a winter jacket with a defined waist to suit most body shapes. Also, make sure the coat you go for fits properly. The best way to check the fit is to cross your arms in front of you. If you can do this with ease, then you most likely have the right fit.

 

Sweaters/Jumpers

Winter fashion is all about layering. The key layering is making sure you have the right layers of clothing in for your body shape so you don’t look bulky. The best way to go about this is to avoid fabrics that are super bulky, and go for streamlined silhouettes instead. This way you can ensure you stay warm under layers and look stylish.

 

Loose on Tight

Loose on Tight is one fashion tip for all seasons. The key here is to style a loose clothing with a tight piece to nail the chic look. For example, a loose jumper should be paired with skinny jeans to balance out the volume. A sweater dress should be styled with a pair of leggings to get the loose on tight look right.

 

These are a few of the tips for dressing for your body shape this winter. Do you have any fashion tips to share?
