Temperatures are dropping, brightness is just a few diffuse rays of sunshine and our desire to wrap ourselves up in a plaid by the fire is getting bigger and bigger: we can say it, the cold season is here! Between the desire to stay warm at home and the obligation to go out to work, the question we have to ask ourselves is: how to dress when it’s cold while remaining stylish? Here are a few tips to help you see things more clearly. What to wear when it’s cold?
The coat: essential clothing when it’s cold
Let’s start with the piece we see the most when it comes to going out and covering ourselves against the cold: the coat. The coat is an essential piece of clothing to fight against the cold and a strong part of our dressing room. It’s important to choose it well to stay stylish in all circumstances.
We choose it with a cut adapted to its morphology (curved if it’s the marked size, straight if it’s the opposite) and with a nice fall.
As for colour, even if black remains a basic colour, remember to vary for more style: light grey, beige, camel or even pale pink will give you more style and presence than the eternal black coat. Think about this when you buy your next coat.
Wear it open for a trendy look and adapt the length of your coat to what you are wearing underneath. We avoid making the edge of a skirt or dress protrude under a long coat for example. In this case, you will prefer a short coat or a super long coat.
Scarves: essential devices when it is cold.
To the question “what to wear when it’s cold”, scarves are obviously part of the game! I also advise you to vary the models and styles to bring different touches to your coats and outfits. As the scarf will be the closest piece to your face, it is important to choose it in your own tones so that it brings you the bright side you need in winter when it is cold.
So have fun varying styles, colours and materials. Also dress up to match your scarf with your coat! Here you’ll find a little reminder on how to match the colours.
Layering: our allies against the cold
The advantage of winter is that you can have fun layering your clothes and mixing styles while staying warm. Here are a few examples of mixes that work:
Lace + big knit for a glamour/casual style
Blazers, perfectos or denim jackets to layer with a coat for a casual and modern look
The shirt under a jumper
We also take pleasure in mixing materials such as leather and knit for example.
As you will have understood, there are many ideas and we can have fun mixing styles endlessly! Enough to make us love the cold a little more.
To be feminine even when it’s cold
This certainly remains the challenge of winter. How can you stay feminine when all you want to do is put on layers to stay warm?
When we think of winter, we think directly of warm trousers and cosy jumpers. But to stay feminine, you can still wear pretty dresses and skirts! A loose knit dress, a jumper dress with a pretty necklace and a nice pair of boots or a mini skirt with a big jumper and that’s it ! You can even add some big socks on top of your tights, you’ll see that it’s all good.
So here are some inspirations to stay stylish even when it’s cold!
