After living in California for 7 years, I had a hard time transitioning to colder weather. I am not going to lie, I admit that I was really struggling in East Coast during Winter last year. My mood was always down and I didn't feel stylish at all. But this year I decided to enjoy the moment. I believe that every struggle brings a new solution. Here are the steps I followed to feel better and it worked.
1- Coat: When you pick your coat from the store, check the material. Please make sure that the materials are Winter friendly. ( wool, Cashmere ext )
2- Cashmere or wool; Sweater and leggings: I know that cashmere and wool are expensive materials. But Definitely worth spending the money. I own one black and one grey cashmere sweater from Granacom. I wear them every day. You can also buy cashmere leggings for underneath.
3- Accessories: I have some hats that are made of wool as well. Hats are great pieces to stand out with your outfit. A good scarf and good leather gloves feel definitely more dressy.
4- Skinny Jeans: When the weather gets really cold then I wear a big coat. It can feel pretty spacious inside these coats, that's why I prefer wearing skinny black jeans with it. Which gives my look some balance.
5- Pointy boots : Whenever I wear pointy boots, I can see a big difference. I look more slim and taller. It helps elevating my look.
6- Brown tones: Did you know that brown tones are the luxury colors in fashion. If you really want to stand out with your outfit in public; then you must get one brown coat for your closet.
