I'm back with another winter fashion article. I might have mentioned it in a previous post but I hate winter. I'm really sensitive to the cold and as I get older, I have seen how the lack of sunlight can affect our mood and productivity. Here in Paris, it's dark when we get up and pitch black by 4:30pm. I just want to hibernate until spring hahaha! But honestly, I should not even complain because in Northern Scandinavia the sun sets around 3pm...
When you live in a cold country you quickly learn how to layer clothes. That's why I think it's important to invest in a quality coat that will last you for a very long time. Choose a color that can easily match all of your outfits. You can be sure that black, navy blue, gray and beige will never go out of style.
To really master the art of layering, you will have to size up. Just to give you an example, I'm a size medium but I always take a size large or extra large for coats. Once you have found the right one, you can layer as many pieces as you want. Just remember, we are not trying to look like the Michelin man. Create subtle layers with t-shirts, button-down shirts, turtlenecks, oversized sweaters, cardigans, overshirts or even blazers.
Add the final touch to your layered look by tying a sweater around your shoulders. If you want to be even more practical, use it as a scarf. Just have fun with it, tie the sweater a little bit to the side or just let it hang effortlessly on your shoulders.
Some fashion trends can be very expensive. We can't always keep up. This one won't cost you a dime. We all have a sweater we can use for this look.
Don't throw style out the window just because it's cold. Add a twist to a basic outfit by
layering it with a sweater over the shoulders. Scroll down to see some of my favorite looks.
