December. This is the time when people used to ask a logical question: how to survive the winter and how not to freeze. Even today, when we live in an era of down jackets and heating in homes, this issue remains relevant for many women. It got altered a bit: how to survive the winter, not to freeze, and look good? After all, you want to feel confident and attractive even underneath a very warm jacket. In this case, stylists refer to some simple tips that will help spend the winter with comfort and style.
When looking through fashion blogs or glossy magazines with autumn-winter collections, you inevitably have the feeling that these things are not designed for a harsh winter. But it also sounds very depressive to some sensitive ladies to pack their precious body into a gloomy down jacket for 3-4 months. No, being sad is not an option. It is better to get warm clothes, mixing clothes in the right way and being armed with these simple tips.

1. Have layers of clothes
The basic rule of your fall and winter wardrobe is layering. The easiest option is to have a thin shirt or a blouse under a warm spacious sweater. Your boundaries are where your imagination takes you. The advantages are essential: firstly, if it is hot in a well heated room, you can always remove one of the layers. Secondly, a few layers of not even the thickest fabrics will allow you to better keep your own heat. As a result, you will not feel cold.
2. Combine a warm sweater with a romantic long skirt
Even during a severe winter we sometimes want to feel tender and romantic. Do not rid yourself of such a pleasure. Instead of miniskirts that are considered “dangerous” for the cold season, give preference to long (perhaps even multi-layer) models in the popular “Boho” style.
Combine them with warm cozy sweaters. Even a city covered with snow is a good place for reverie and romance.
3. Put on thick tights
Buy thicker tights. A great option would be to have fleece-backed tights or leggings. They are pleasant to the body, warm, but thin enough not to add extra kilos to your body. And yet, they are easy and nice to combine with comfortable elongated sweaters.
4. Artificial fur
One of the main trends of the season is a coat of faux fur designed in bold colors.
Forget your prejudices and do not discard this choice: dense fur, combined with a topical voluminous silhouette will keep your body warmth no worse than a warm jacket, and the unusual shade will remove season blues. Besides, not a single animal will suffer!
5. Giant-knitted sweaters
A sweater is your best friend for the coming months. In search of new clothes, have a closer look at voluminous silhouettes, large (and even giant) knitting and pastel shades.
This could be the hottest trend this winter, and you will never want to take off such a sweater.
Silk may seem not the best choice for winter, but that’s not always right. Cold and flowing material retains the natural warmth of your body perfectly well. Provided that the fabric is completely natural. So stylists recommend to boldly wear your favorite silk blouse under a warm sweater. You will enjoy the comfort, and the feeling of being dressed smart will stay with you throughout the day.
7. Knee-high boots
Knee-high boots are #1 purchase for all fashionistas in the autumn-winter season, even though they are not quite the ones Julia Roberts’ heroine in “Pretty Woman” used to wear. All the celebrities have packed their precious limbs in knee-high boots (sometimes reaching the hip), and that was a wise thing to do. Firstly, they are warmer.
Especially if you combine knee-high boots with thick tights or warm stockings. Secondly, this model of shoes makes any type of legs look slimmer. Enjoy their beauty and pleasure.
Look at the passengers of public transport in winter: almost all of them are “painted” in black, dark gray and other gloomy colors. The best way to cheer up this bleak scene is to add bright accessories. A long spacious scarf or a trendy beanie cap with a pompom will transform even the most ordinary down jacket. It is also cheaper and easier to change and combine accessories, if to compare them with garments.
