It's been quite a while again which is due to the massive amount of family get-togethers in the past days - winter vacations are always like this: You eat a lot, it's freaking cold (at least where I live) and you spend lots of time with your friends/family. This is why I thought I'd create these four stylish, warm and comfy winter outfits to give you guys an idea of what you could wear during this period:
This is a very basic outfit, for when you're just hanging out at some friend's place with a nice movie and hot chocolate. As you guys might have noticed, I'm huge on jeggings - I think they are just the most comfortable way to look stylish. This winter boat-neck sweaters and tops are really in, which is why I chose this one - it actually is from Gucci, but honestly, you can find them everywhere! As for shoes, flat ankle boots are one of my big loves, because it's amazing how versitile they are; you can wear them during summer and during winter with really everything! Since it's probably quite cold, you don't want to forget about a nice scarf. This outfit would look great with a long, golden necklace - other than that, I'd keep the jewellery simple. When you go to a friend's house, you want a nice purse, that's not too large, but still fits everything you need - the Speedy by Louis Vuitton is a great choice and talking out of experience I can say that it is a wonderful bag! And last but not least: Don't forget about a pair of nice and warm socks, 'cause I find it kind of rude to walk around in shoes in other people's houses, even when it's cold.
A-lined dresses and skirts are really in this season - and I am in love with them 'cause they're extremely feminine and comfy at the same time. By adding a warm, cropped sweater you not only add a warm layer, but also another trendy piece. I love the way cropped sweaters accentuate the waistline - if you really want to emphasize this part of your body, try adding a narrow belt. Knit over-the-knee socks are sexy and really warm at the same time - depending on where you live you can either wear them on your bare skin or above some tights. Some lace-up ankle boots complete the look - if you want to create the appearance of longer legs, try sticking with the same color as the over-the-knee socks. A beanie and a scarf will keep you warm and add another bit of playfulness to this outfit.
This third idea is a great outfit for shopping with your girls and also for a date with your special other. As I said, A-lined skirts are very fashionable - if you do however for any reason not like them, you can always go with a short and tight pencil-skirt. I love large stripes like the ones of this sweater - make sure you tuck the sweater into your skirt and if you choose the A-lined skirt, then I recommend adding a waist-belt to emphasize the narrow waist. In order to keep you warm and cosy, you can layer a wool or cashmere coat over the rest of the outfit. For this, I'd wear some normal semi-opaque black tights and above them, some knee-high socks with some playful detailing i.e. bows; this makes your look really unique and sexy. I've already chosen these shoes for another more formal outfit a few posts ago - this time I wanted to show how you could wear something preppy for everyday. I would recommend keeping the jewellery simple but definitely visible, using for exemple a long gemstone-necklace. A nice pair of leather gloves, a big bag and some cat-eye sunglasses and your ready to go!
This last outfit is what I'd wear when it's really cold and there's nothing you actually can do besides staying inside at someone's place playing video games. I chose a pair of simple skinny jeans and a large, warm cashmere-sweater. This is really simple, so to add a bit of colour you could try going with a patterned scarf; here I've used a big leo-scarf. Depending on your preference you can layer a coat or a down-jacket on top - my personal experience is that down is warmer than any other fabric, which is why after many years of coats I've switched back to down-jackets. There's nothing warmer than UGG-boots and unless it is snowing (they are kind of slippery!) they are my No. 1 go-to shoes during winter. Since this is just a house-outfit, I'd avoid too much jewellery - this necklace is perfect, 'cause it's simple and elegant at the same time. A pair of warm house shoes is the perfect choice to look cute and keep your feet warm.
Which one do you like best/is most your style?
Hope you guys have an awesome vacation!
