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.
