As the winter's chill continues to rise, gearing up your outfits for the freezing temperature by layering brings a lot of style conundrums. While your instinct tells to grab that thick woollen blanket, part of you wants to look chic and as fashionable as you can be. Accessorising and layering in winter are quite tricky, too functional and you often end up looking like you've nabbed your granny's scarf and walked out straight from bed, too chic and you take the risk of not being warm enough. So the question we often ask ourselves during winter is how to look cool and still staying warm. Here are a few tips you may like to consider when dressing for winter. Have a Warm Base Layer: Layering is key when it comes to styling winter outfit, but you have to be clever with it. Keeping your base layer warm will assure you stay comfortable and cosy when the temperature drops. I often wear leggings and a camisole under trousers and a sweater. Thin yet warm layers close to your body does an amazing job without looking too bulky and it's great if you still wants to flaunt your feminine curves during winter. Wear it fully tucked like I did or keep it loose with your favourite winter leggings. Here are some great affordable light wool sweaters that are great for winter layering as similar to my look. <br /> Don't Be Afraid of Colours: Sure black on black looks particularly elegant, but why not try different shades like green, pink or bright blue and make your outfit more fun and out of the crowd all-black category. Opt for a coat or jacket that falls below the knee and sits close to your body, it's streamlined silhouette usually gives that elegant and chic look. Adorn with Statement Accessories: The main rule to look cool during winter is your accessories. While a beanie hat is the classic winter gear, don't shy away to experiment with different styles. A cashmere beret always looks chic or you should try a baker-boy hat (as seen on me) to give an edgy touch to your winter look. Nothing looks more classy than a great baker boy hat while keeping your head warm during chilly days. A statement scarf is another easy way to upscale you plain classic winter look. Bright colours and bold patterns are great ideas to start with. Keep your Feet Warm and Catchy: Keeping your feet warm begins with picking the right cosy boots like UGG boots, but here we are talking about looking cool while staying warm, so the warmest boots may not necessarily be the best option always. Ankle boots are a great choice because they work perfectly with many different styles from dresses, skirts to jeans. But, it doesn't have to be only black or brown, as mentioned earlier don't be afraid to play with colours and textures. These white ankle boots elevated my whole outfit to a complete new level, however if you are in colder places you may like to go for thicker platforms or soles. In my previous post Weekend Outfit Ideas That Will Take You Everywhere this Fall, I've also mentioned how versatile white ankle boots can be. If you haven't seen the post yet, don't forget to check it out. Lastly, don't forget that cool girls are all about staying true to themselves, so don't pay too much attention to trends. Regardless of trends, go for something that suits your personality and comfortable to you. Hope you enjoy reading this post.

I know that Prom is still several months away but it’s never too early to start preparing. If you want to look your best, there are several tips and tricks that you can use to survive prom without any hassle. Take note of the following tips on Prom Survival. Find the right dress: Make sure that you have the right dress. This means that you need to look at a selection of 2018 Jovani prom dresses or other designer dresses available. This is one of the ways that you are going to have your moment. Therefore, you do not need to wait until a week before prom before you go to look and buy your prom dress. This is because you are not going to have time to get the dress altered. Plus, by shopping early, you are going to have a better selection of all of the latest styles that are going to look good on you. The dress should not only fit you well, but it also needs to fit your personality. You are also going to want to be comfortable in your dress so that you can actually have fun at your prom. Schedule an appointment at the local salon: Make sure that you make an appointment at your local salon at least a month before the prom. This is because these hair appointments are going to fill up quick and you are going to want to get your hair done for the prom. Therefore, when you go to the salon for your hair appointment, then you are going to need to find some ideas with pictures that are going to work well with your particular type of hair. There are some hairstyles that are just not going to work. Wear the right shoes: Make sure that you have the right shoes. You need to decide if you are going to wear heels or flats. But the shoes are going to need to fit you right. This means that you want to make sure that there is no gap between the back of your heel and the shoe. It is usually a good idea to walk in the shoe before you purchase it to see how it feels. This is because of all of the variety of different surfaces that you are going to be walking on by the end of the night. Some of these surfaces might include hardwood, grass, concrete, and gravel. Stay hydrated: The fourth tip is to make sure that you are staying hydrated. This means that you are going to need to drink plenty of water during the night. This is because, most of the time, the prom is going to be held during the warmer months. You are going to be doing a lot of walking and running around as you shop for all the necessities. The last thing that you want is to get sick while you are at the prom. All of your friends are going to be enjoying themselves when you are going to be stuck in bed because you have gotten too hot and had to go to the local hospital. Smile! Don't forget to smile. Sometimes, when you are doing all of that running around, you are going to forget how much fun the prom is supposed to be. Therefore, if you are going with a date, it is very important to get some good pictures with your date. But even if you don't have a date, you can still get some pictures with a group of your friends. This is because you are going to want to have these pictures, so you can remember the night. These are just some of the tips and tricks that you can use to make sure that you survive the prom. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Hope you enjoy it.

If you’ve made it this far, you already deserve a pat on the back, what with the courting period, and if you are preparing for that romantic proposal, your thoughts must turn to the engagement ring and it can be very daunting to choose the right engagement ring, so I though to share some of my thoughts on this dilemma, skipping my usual topics. If we look at the eternal debate on whether or not your partner should have some input with engagement ring selection, a balance needs to be strucked. You do want her input regarding designs and preferences, and of course, you will need to find out her ring size, yet there should still be an element of surprise, and if she is not present when you actually buy the ring, you have enough of the surprise factor to stay close to tradition. Single or Multi-Stones? In all honesty, this question should be answered by your partner, as she is the one who will be wearing the ring for the rest of her life. While surprises are nice and can be romantic, the basic design of the ring should have her input, and if you are the observant type, take note of the jewellery she wears, and perhaps look for one of her close friends who can help you with information about your partner’s preferences. The chosen friend could always approach your girlfriend and pretend she is looking at engagement rings, and with some online browsing, your intended is bound to reveal her real likes and dislikes, and armed with this critical information, you can be confident in your choice of rings. There are some unique engagement rings in Toronto at Diamonds for Less, and whether she prefers a single diamond or a cluster, prices are affordable. Base Metal Selection: Gold is, of course, very popular, yet it is not durable, and perhaps platinum is the better choice, although it does lose a little of its lustre after a while, and white gold is more durable than yellow gold, and some couples prefer mixed base metals, which does add a certain uniqueness. Yellow gold will wear down over time and after 15-20 years, the ring might have to be re-shanked, which is perhaps the reason why many couples are choosing platinum as the base metal for their engagement rings. If you would like some background information on platinum, there is an overview of the metal’s amazing properties that you can refer to. Practicality: Your partner will not want to take the engagement ring off, and therefore, the design should be something simple, and with not too high a raise, as this will catch on clothing. The ring should be pulled through some sheer fabric, which will reveal if the ring is liable to get caught during the daily activities we all encounter. Bevelled edges are advised, as this facilitates durability, and try to avoid slim claws, as they are easily prize open. Your ring selection is important, and with some clandestine help from her friends, you will hopefully choose the perfect engagement ring that will symbolise your eternal love. If you are not sure about designs, there are many images online, and it is only by browsing that you can safely say you have made an informed decision.
