Just because itís Ė26įC outside it doesnít mean you should have to choose between looking fabulous or getting frostbite. Hopefully, these tips will help you stay both toasty and stylish for the rest of the winter season.
A stylish sweater is just what you need to keep the cold away. They are available in tons of styles and fabrics from comfortable cotton to luxurious cashmere. Turtlenecks can also be doubled as a scarf to keep your neck warm when the temperature plummets. Pullovers are versatile and can be worn casually or dressy.
The trick to buying a scarf is to choose a fabric that caresses your skin like angora or pashmina (textile blend of silk and cashmere) and avoid anything that is itchy. For a more classy and sophisticated look opt for a dark or neutral colored scarf. If you are a little more daring and fun, take the opportunity to add a splash of vibrant color to a dark coat and stand out against the snowy background.
Simple hats can be both sexy and snug if you chose the right one. Stay away from uncomfortable prickly fabrics and instead choose wool blends for their thermal property. Donít forget to coordinate your accessories, nothing looks better than someone who is put-together; try the mix and match approach while staying within the same color tones.
The ideal accessory for those of you who canít stand hats and want to keep your ears from falling off! Headbands are a favorite for girls with ponytails who dread ďthe bumpĒ and for those who donít want to ruin their dos!
Always make sure your boots have some kind of lining so your toes wonít freeze, otherwise be sure to wear warm thermal socks. Itís best to get water-resistant boots to keep your feet dry and get soles with grips for those slippery days.
Not the most fashionable item, but can come in handy on those extremely cold days. Most are lightweight and thin and can be worn discreetly under loose fitting pants.
