Despite the weather, staying warm and cozy this winter can also be chic. By choosing the right items, you’ll never look too flab when trying to stay warm this season.
Layering is everyone’s best friend. Cardigans are an easy and versatile way to stay warm this winter. Loose fitting knit cardigans look great over tees or flannel button-downs and can be worn in a variety of ways to keep your outfits looking new and fresh all season without looking worn out. Vests, sweaters, and long-sleeved tees can be layered in any number of chic combinations and can give new life to tees and tanks you might otherwise put away for the season. Even printed thermal tops are trending! And remember, you are also safe in purchasing a few heavy-knit sweaters for the season. Wear them with skinny jeans or over thick paneled leggings and look great while keeping yourself warm.
A pashmina, chiffon, or a tube scarf is a great addition to any winter ensemble. Be sure to have several in your wardrobe to wear with multiple outfits on any occasion. Tie it around your neck to protect yourself from the elements while still accessorizing your outfit. Use it as a wrap-around for a dress when you go out to dinner or even just feeling a little chilly around the house. Even draping it over your shoulders gives warmth as well as a bit of that Old Hollywood feel. Scarves are great for any occasion and are essential to layering. If you want to play it up a little, choose a bold, jewel-toned scarf or funky animal print.
When it comes to footwear, it seems boots are in no matter what season it is, but winter is when they are put to the best use. Boots can keep the snow out of your soles as well as protect you from slipping and sliding out on the ice in dangerous weather, all while still looking stylish. Additionally, most boots give you some wiggle room to layer socks or even to wear leggings under skinny jeans or pants if you’re wearing a calf or knee-high boot, and can help trap the warmth. Also consider wearing wool socks or other garments. Wool is always chic when it comes to cozy and helps trap your body heat to keep you toasty.
Choose your items wisely, even thinner garments can be saved with the right warm accessories, whether it’s a scarf, plush leggings, or cardigan. Staying warm can also mean staying chic. Chicastic has a large variety of tube scarves, cardigans, pashminas and fashion scarves.
