Here in the Midwest the sky is darker, the air is colder and the mood is cozier. It’s definitely winter. Time to bundle up in our thick coats, waterproof boots and do our best not to freeze. Winter warmth doesn’t mean drab duds though. Warm boots can be fashionable, cozy coats can be chic and any winter look can be jazzed up with just the right accessories.
Living in places all my life that get a full four seasons, including heavy winter, I have learned to dress the part. Something I have to do in winter, to help keep my mood light and happy when the sky is gray and gloomy is bring brightness to my clothing. For me, this means coats that aren’t just black or dark grey, boots that still do their job to keep my toes toasty but don’t look drab, and bold pops of color, in jewelry, hats, mittens, etc. An outfit can still live up to its purpose while looking sleek and stylish! One of my go-to-places for warm, colorful coats is J. Crew. For boots that keep me warm and dry, and look great with almost anything, I rely on Sperry and their classic duck boots – I literally live in mine in winter, and how cute are they in soft pink?!
This year has been memorable for all of us, in some ways good, in many ways bad. We all have other years, too, that hold special meaning in our hearts and in our memories. Whatever the year may be, and whatever the memory, a chic way to commemorate and add style to your outfit is with monogramed jewelry. It’s perfect for yourself and perfect for a gift. Right now, I am loving chunky rings, and this gold one from Tres Colori adds personality and heart to any outfit. Commemorate a year of birth, graduation, wedding, personal accomplishment and so on. Tres Colori jewelry can be made custom to you and your memories, allowing you to always keep them near and dear.
I know I say it a lot, but it will always “ring” true, fashion should be fun. It’s a sense of yourself – a way to express how you feel (or want to feel) on the inside, on the outside. It’s all about you and what you love. Dress how you want, to represent what you want. In winter you can still stay dry and warm while looking cute, and keeping memories close to your heart.
