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?

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Baby, it’s cold outside! It is painfully cold at the moment. I finding it extremely hard to get out of bed with the darkness and the chill in the air. I wish I could stay under my duvet, with a cup of tea, all day, but that is not my reality. My reality is, I need to get stuff done, which means my wake-up time is usually on or before 7am.

How are you all coping with cold? I am indoors most of the time, so I am nice and warm. And when I need to step out, I make sure I am well layered up. I just recovered from an annoying flu (my first ever full blown flu), so I am not in the mood for any more sickness. If you spot me out and about, I will be rocking my many layers of clothing.

On cold days like this, I am grateful I work from home. It is a lot harder to earn a living working for yourself, that I know, but the pros outweigh the cons massively for me. And I appreciate that so much more in the winter months.

I am currently typing out this post from the comfort of my sofa, wearing my new fluffy nightgown, and I am happy with where I am at in life. I turn 30 in a few days, and I feel like I am in a good place. I can’t imagine any other job that could allow me work in my nightgown, so the flexibility of my job is the best part of it.

Speaking of nightgowns, I think I would need to get some shopping done. I am in need of some new pyjamas and nightgowns. I have a bit of an obsession with nightwear collections, but for someone who spends a great deal of time in my nightwear, I like to have quite a few. I have my eye on a few womens nightgowns by David Nieper, I need to check them out. In the winter months, I like my nightgowns thick and fluffy to retain the body heat, and David Nieper has a couple of warm fleece nightgowns that tick all the right boxes. I can picture myself wearing some of these comfy/stylish pieces already!

Essentials for your winter wardrobe

If you want to ensure that you are fully prepared for the colder season with a winter wardrobe packed with essentials, here are some of the items you should add to your list:

 

  • Knee length boots: Winter is not the time for those sling backs or stilettos, particularly if it the weather is very bad. This is why you should make sure you invest in a good pair of knee length boots, as these are versatile as well as stylish and practical. They can be worn for work, a casual trip out, or even a night out because you can team them with skirts, dresses, jeans and more. The amazing eBay website does a great selection of boots and offers some great deals. You save even more money when you shop at eBay by heading to OZCodes for some very generous discounts.

 

  • Skinny jeans: Skinny jeans are perfect for a number of reasons during the winter. First off, the fact that they cling to you means that you won’t have to worry about that winter chill biting at your legs and ankles because the tightness of the jeans will keep it out. You will also find that their design is perfect for layering items on top in order to keep warm. You can head to retailers such as River Island, Debenhams, for a great choice of skinny jeans to add to your wardrobe.

 

  • High neck jumper: When it comes to feeling warm and still looking stylish, a high neck jumper is ideal. The great thing about these, apart from the fact that they keep the cold out, is that they can be worn for work, days out or casual evenings out. They also look great with jeans as well as jumpers and work-wear, which makes them a versatile addition to the wardrobe. The Iconic offers a good choice of tops and jumpers so take a look through the selection there to purchase your high neck jumper.

  • Knitted dress: Knitted dresses were in fashion some decades ago but have made a big comeback. Winter shouldn’t mean that you can’t wear a dress and by investing in a knitted dress you can enjoy the style and confidence that comes with wearing a dress without skimping on warmth and practicality.

 

  • Cashmere sweater: Cashmere has a texture and appearance that oozes luxury and style. Winter is the best time to wear this because you can show off your great fashion sense while revelling in the warmth and comfort of cashmere. A cashmere sweater is therefore an excellent addition to your winter wardrobe and you can enjoy some great deals on these and other sweaters at retailers such as Neverland Store.

 

  • Winter coat: Of course, a winter coat is essential during this season but keeping warm with your outerwear does not mean you have to do away with style. Invest in a statement coat such as metallic or a bold colour like red in order to brighten up your outfit, add a splash of colour to a gloomy grey day, and keep you looking stylish while you are out and about.

  • Knitted scarf: Scarves are not just good for keeping the cold out but also for adding style to any outfit. Accessorising with a knitted scarf will therefore enable you to enjoy practicality as well as style. You can even opt for a blanket scarf, which will envelope you in warmth but also make your outfit stand out all the more.

 

  • Leather jacket/coat: Winter is a great time to step out in a leather coat or jacket, as these are too heavy and hot for summer but look great during the colder season. You can really rock out when you wear leather and a stylish leather jacket is perfect for a glam night out as well as a casual shopping trip or day out.

 

  • Opaque tights: When it comes to winter fashion accessories, always have a pair of black opaque tights to hand. If you want to wear a skirt or dress during the colder weather, you don’t have to worry about having freezing legs when you have these tights. A high quality pair of opaque tights will keep you warm and they look great with skirts and dresses as well as with boots and shoes.

 

With these winter staples in your wardrobe, you can ensure that you have everything you need to combine style and practicality this winter.
