Be Fearless & Fashionable for Winter
It’s the beautiful month of January. The first month of the New Year that brings the promise of a fresh start for our health, relationships and careers. The crisp air awakens our senses. It’s like recharging our mind to let go of past transgressions to make room for new attitudes and opportunities.
Let’s choose a fearless attitude for 2014! Go for that promotion. Try a new food or travel to a new exotic destination. Be daring with your winter wear! Yes – this is the time to step out and show the world you are confident and can rock winter style!
There are many ways to look classy, chic and be cozy at the same time! Your outerwear does not have to be bulky and dowdy to be warm. Here are my suggestions:
Feel fab in fur!
Look Fur-licious in a fur vest or coat. Fur details on a military style jacket, long winter coat or sweater add just the right amount of luxury to make people stand in attention and take notice!
Style Tip: Be mindful of your body shape! Short fur coats or vests can add bulk to an already full-figured woman. For a slimmer look, select fur accents around the hood or around the collar of a structured jacket.
Warm thy head.
Trap escaping warmth in a stylish topper to make heads spin! Show your personality! Go fierce in red fleece, stately in an earth-toned camel or go daring in fur. Protect your ears and go vintage with an alluring turban.
Style Tip: Jazz up a basic turban by adding a sassy pin or sewing on a sparkly patch. Instant Glam!
A new twist on scarves.
This year-round fashion staple takes on new meaning in the winter! Not only is it meant to embellish an outfit but it adds a layer of warmth too! For winter, select styles with color, metallic threading and texture to pop against a solid jacket.
Style Tip: Take the infinity scarf to a new level as a demure head wrap!
Be bold in boots!
As it is said: “Shoes make the outfit!” Coordinate and complete a military-style look with a short combat boot. Elongate your leg with a sexy, stylish high heel knee boot. Elevate the style of a casual pair jeans and your favorite cozy sweater with edgy, hardware embellished riding boots. From snaps to buckles to metallic studs – this is all the pop you will need for this look!
Style Tip: If you have a wider calf, look for a taller knee boot versus a shorter boot that sits mid calf. You may have to shop online for a special size but in the end your boot will enhance your look not distract the eye. The key is to wear clothing and accessories that will draw the eye away from your least flattering areas.
Don’t succumb to the cold temps and bundle your body in dowdy bulky outerwear. Step into the New Year with a new resolution – the only less you want to be is FEARLESS!
