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?

 

 

Autumn Women’s Jackets Wish-list 2015

Autumn is here and that means it is time to wrap up and stay warm. I don’t know about you, but I am beginning to feel the chill here in Cheshire, and I am seriously contemplating putting the heating on. I am hoping I can hold on for a little longer, probably until later in the month. I feel it is way too early to have the heating on. How are you coping where you are?

The only thing I am excited about this autumn is updating my wardrobe with new season staples. That will get me through this dark and gloomy season. I have been shopping around for Women’s Jackets and I have spotted quite a few. Here are my current favourites:
