Anyone of us has, at some point, wanted to have the mind of a fashion blogger to find the secret formula that would solve “Nothing-to-wear” syndrome. Sure, you might think, that it is easy for them, because they have closets full of clothes, and they do not even have to try that hard to find something great. That is simply not true.
The best amongst fashion bloggers can make at least 3 awe-inspiring outfits with the same essential clothing pieces. “How”, you might ask? It is easy, they are the Einstein of the fashion, and though we cannot steal their minds, we can use the formulas they have shared with us. Here are some of the must-tries for this winter.
Ladies: Knit + Coat + Oversized Scarf + Skinny Jeans + Boots + Floppy Hat
This is the perfect winter combination. It is warm, it is layered and it is the perfect modern variation of Breakfast at Tiffany’s kind of elegance. The trick with this winner outfit is to choose one color that will prevail throughout it. If you want to play it safe, that color should definitely be black, but you cannot go wrong with chocolate brown, too. Two more daring options are the amazing and popular with reason burgundy or even dark metallic blue.
The hat, the boots and the scarf should be in the dominant color, while the other pieces can be combined accordingly –burgundy and black, for instance, pair up perfectly. If you want something a bit edgier, choose leather pants instead of skinny jeans. Finish up the combination with a pair of leather gloves and a leather bag.
Ladies: Knitted Sweaterdress + Warm Tights + Boots + Statement Accessory + Coat
The knit dress is quite an underrated piece, but it seems that it is about to get its five minutes of fame (and hopefully a lot more). A lady loves her dress, and why depriving her of the pleasure of wearing dresses during the winter? That is when winter dress comes on the scene. Chose a dress according to your preferences (turtleneck, midi dress, fitted cut, A-line, ribbed waistline, etc.) in some of the finest winter colors – grey, black, burgundy, blue, or with some patterns. Opt for solid color warm tights and boots (ankle or high). Your statement accessory can be anything from oversized earrings to large breastplate necklace. Top it all with a warm elegant coat.
Gentlemen: Tweed Pants + Dress Shirt + Tweed Suit Blazer + Tweed Driving Cap + Boots
You have probably realized by now that we are crazy about tweed, and so should you. It is the season’s greatest hit for men’s apparel. Another major trend is grey in all of its shades, so if you can, include it in this outfit. To reach the ultimate refines, the shirt, the pants and the blazer should be custom made by reliable tailors, such as iTailor’ skilled professionals so that they would fit your body shape ideally. The tweed driving cap will give you the youthful and a bit dandy-feel. Opt for leather lace-up style boots.
Gentlemen: Pants + Turtleneck + Paletot Coat + Boots
This is the perfectly casual and yet a bit dressy combination. Maybe you think that turtlenecks are so 70s, but do we have to remind you that none other than 007 wore it in this year’s spectacular Spectre, and guys, he hooked up with Monica Belluci? In that case, you have your answer when it comes to color too, black, of course (but you can experiment). Combine it with black slim-fit pants and an interesting long overcoat Paletot style (double breasted, fitted, knee-length) – it can be patterned (plaid) or colored (green). Choose elegant black lace-up ankle boots.
Do not limit yourself strictly to these formulas. Use them as basics for your own experiments with style. Discover your inner fashion blogger and find yourself in the crowded world of fashion trends. In the end, fashion is all about self-expression, so be yourself and be stylish!
