Depending on who you are, the changing of the seasons is either the best thing ever or something that you dread all summer long. After all, for every person who can’t wait to dive into the world of chunky sweaters and hot cocoa, there’s another who’s just not ready to let go of their bathing suit and sunglasses. That being said, no matter what you might think about the changing of the season, there is one thing about it that’s just a little bit disappointing.
That’s the fact that it suddenly seems to become unacceptable to have any real excitement to your wardrobe. Instead, we’re all supposed to embrace the slightly dour, dreary styles that match up with the approaching winter months. Well, with that in mind, here are a few things that you can do to make sure that the winter doesn’t take away your fashion flair.
If you want to hold onto your fashion identity while the colours of the world turn winter grey, why not do so with some statement pieces in your outfit? Whether it’s chunky jewellery or a g-shock watch, having something that really stands out can make your outfit pop no matter what kind of style you’re working with. Of course, it’s a good idea not to overdo it. When you’re working with bold accessories, a “less is more” approach is probably for the best. The last thing you want is to end up looking like a Christmas tree!
Colour always seems to be the first thing to go when you the seasons change from summer to autumn. Just because the leaves have lost their colour, we’re all supposed to do the same and settle for muddy, dark tones. Well, why not rebel against that and embrace the rainbow in your outfits? After all, when the world around you is a little dull and a little grey, what could make you stand out more than a seriously vibrant colour palate? It’s a good idea to keep the colours that you use in keeping with your skin tone, but there really aren’t any other limits to what you can or should wear other than your own desire to express yourself.
It seems that, as soon as the weather gets a little bit chilly, everyone starts reaching for their huge chunky sweaters. And sure, there’s something rather charming about wearing something oversized and formless when you want to get cosy and comfortable. But why not go the opposite direction. Embrace some harsh, clean lines in your clothes. A little bit of asymmetry and precision can go a long way, especially when it’s the total opposite of the way that everyone else is dressing right now!
The truth is that, outside of staying comfortable, there’s no reason why you should feel like you have to change a single thing about your wardrobe for any reason. Our clothes are one of the best ways that we express ourselves so why would you want to change that for anyone else?
