OOTD: Staying Warm this Winter

It is freezing at the moment and I am lost in many layers of clothing.  This weather is kind of expected in January, so no surprises really. However, I intend to stay warm. It is so funny to see some people walking around in very little clothing. I wonder how they do it. Just so you know, I had my very warm winter jacket on standby while I took these outfit photos. So don’t be deceived by this outfit.

I took these photos some days ago while holidaying in Essex. We took a quick set of outfit photos on a Samsung phone since I decided to leave my Nikon Cameras at home. I must say, I am quite impressed with the picture quality on the Samsung phone. It is so amazing. I am an Apple girl at heart but lately the quality on my iPhone has left a lot to be desired. I am looking to get a new phone this year and I am not sure which brand to go for at the moment. Mu head says Samsung but my heart says Apple. What phone do you use?

I got this Merino Wool Mix Sweater by Damart some weeks ago. It is a new wardrobe addition I am seriously loving. I love the sparkle colour block design. It is one luxury piece I can style effortlessly and I like the fact that it can be worn day or night. I also feel dead warm inside it. It is such a quality piece. And great for those who plan to stay warm this winter.

The pair of leggings I have is also a new wardrobe addition. I got that some weeks ago, and I plan on getting some more pairs. A woman can never have too many pairs of leggings. I think leggings are one of the most versatile pieces ever and I am forever buying new sets.

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!

Everything else I have on is a goldie. I am happy the autumn/winter season is here with the boots, tights and many layers. Dressing is always fun this season. There are a lot of style options and inspiration is everywhere.
