Wearing Skirts In Winters

The first thing to consider is the fabric. Heavier fabrics like wool, tweed, leather, denim, corduroy and velvet will keep out the chill. Avoid cotton, lightweight polyester, satin and silk. It is a good idea to layer thick tights or leggings during the winter to avoid freezing.

Secondly, consider the color and pattern of the garment you choose. Solid dark colors are best as well as statement making patterns in deep rich tones. Avoid florals and light colors as they are out of season.

Third, make sure the top you choose is extra warm to offset the cold. Cardigans can be worn underneath a long fitted coat. A hat and scarf will also help you keep the warmth close to your body.

Maxis are the most hassle free. Keep the length between mid-calf and right above your ankle. Any longer and the bottom hem could get wet or dirty … Read the rest

Wear High Contrast Fashion

Black and white is the classic pairing and very easy to find. If you are just venturing into this trend, try this first. Pair a black and white patterned top with solid colored bottoms. Any pattern will do! Try florals, stripes, polka dots, checks or skulls for an edge. As long as the pants or skirt are in a bright shade, you will be fine. No soft pinks or beige. This trend calls for boldness. To finish the look, your shoes can either be black, white or the same hue as the bottoms you chose. For a subtler outfit, wear denim and neutral flats or heels. Add the third pop of color with a bright handbag or clutch. Another idea is to wear a black and white striped skirt, emerald green heels and a white top. Accessorize with emerald earrings or a green purse. High-contrast is attention getting, so … Read the rest

Wear A Cloche Hat

This cap flatters all women because of its classic style. For casual outfits, try a red plaid skirt, blue blouse and bright cardigan. Add black tights, chunky heels and finish with a red cloche. The color in the hat and skirt tie the whole ensemble together. Another idea is to wear a grey bonnet with a romantic white top over a floral print skirt. For a retro look, try a pair of printed red shorts tied with a black belt. Tuck a white button down into the shorts and roll your sleeves up to show off the stack of bangles on your wrist. Red heels and a matching hat finish this casual yet chic look.

Cooler weather calls for a different approach. Try thick maroon tights and leather boots under a crocheted dress. Layer a cardigan and a grey coat over your dress. Wrap your neck in a scarf … Read the rest

Wearing A White Dress

First, choose a shade that compliments your natural skin tone. Cooler skin with blue and pink undertones looks good with bright and crisp white. Skin with yellow, orange or red undertones can wear ecru or eggshell. Warmer skin with dark or light brown shades look beautiful with cream and ivory.

Secondly, make sure your undergarments are as close to your skin color as possible. White has a transparency to it that could prove embarrassing if you wear the wrong color bra and panties. Also, make sure your dress is properly lined for extra coverage. In addition, make sure the fit of your dress is not too clingy. Black is more flattering than white when it comes to a tight fit.

Third, choose proper accessories. Simplicity works best. You never want to overwhelm your outfit, especially in this particular hue. A splash of color with a scarf or statement necklace should … Read the rest
