Granted, it might be hardly noticeable after the great washout summer, but it’s true. As any self-respecting fashionista knows, the change of season can mean only one thing: a wonderful excuse to go shopping!
Cold weather doesn’t have to mean clothes ones that are warmer. So that you can choose whether to bulk up with thick fabrics and cozy knits, or go from the spring and summer with your favorite pieces for layering; group funky accessories and outerwear. That way, you do not need to banish cute tea dresses and floral skirts to the back of your wardrobe for another year; just mix it up by adding jeans or opaque tights and legwarmers, an oversized cardigan or batwing jumper, and these essential winter boots.
The most important thing, and the biggest investment you will make a jacket that goes with everything. Wool swing coats in deep colors are set to be big this year, while a great leather trench or mac never goes out of fashion. The silhouette is waists and skirts, which is extremely flattering for all sizes. So have a rummage in vintage stores or the back of your mum’s wardrobe, this look is retro and you might just bag a piece that is exceptional to make you the envy of hipsters.
Regarding colors, remember winter fashion doesn’t have to be funereal. While charcoal, gray and black are all very well and grown-up, they can be harsh and make you look, or just plain dull! Try a dark, rich color which flatters skin and your hair – maroon, purple and chocolate are all great – and accessorize with flashes of color. So a deep coat will look great with a fuchsia scarf and gloves; navy or jar green are best with the lovely turquoise and blue tones which were all over Spring-Summer this year. A color warms your complexion and will grab attention, so think about a beret or cloche hat in a color you might think outrageous for larger pieces.
Of course, you’ll need a new bag that is fabulous to go with all this outerwear. A black patent tote or shopper, with strap or buckle details, will keep you on-trend when creating a fashion statement. It also provides you somewhere to stash those hats, gloves, scarves, and jumpers that are extra when you are indoors, so no excuses for leaving them! Other key pieces this season shape the overall dynamic, which is extremely feminine but never frilly: cutesy angora jumpers, puff sleeves and empire lines cozy up to corset belts, bold ‘statement’ necklaces, high-waisted pencil skirts and shoe boots for a chic, kitten-with-a-whip kind of vibe.
Many of these winter must-haves will be versatile from now right through spring – and, if this year’s gloomy weather trend continues, right into summer. Before splashing out on something snuggly so, don’t wait for the first frost. The final accessory that every girl should have is, naturally, a good credit card; with many offering 0% on purchases for many months, you can enjoy your new look now and pay for it later without feeling the burn of high-interest rates that often come with store cards.
Why Over-The-Knee Boots Will Always Be A Cold Weather Staple
Each year, magazines, blogs and websites compile their “Must Have” fall and winter fashion items and every year, you’ll find over-the-knee boots on that list. It never fails! Boots are a cold weather must in terms of fashion, but over-the-knees boots are one particular style that’s cemented in fashion lists for this time of year. And it’s for a good reason, too! Over-the-knee boots are fashionistas go to footwear as soon as the leaves start to turn beautiful fall colors and winter’s chill starts to creep up upon us. And it doesn’t matter where you live; over-the-boots are a word-wide trend and here’s why they’re a cold weather staple:
- Over-the-knee boots keep you warm
A major reason why these particular boots are so popular during this time of year is because they’re long enough to keep your bottom half warm! Regular boots only go so far up your calf, but these boots go well past your knee (and even your thigh if you opt for thigh-high boots), covering more of your legs to keep you warm when the weather starts to get colder. And wearing them with tights, leggings or jeans under will add to their warmth!
- They’re stylish as hell
There’s no denying that over-the-knee boots are very stylish. Whether you go with over-the-knee heeled boots or flat ones, they both really make an outfit. Flat options are great everyday options, while heeled ones are sexy and can easily take you from a day to night look! Something as simple and basic as a tee and jeans really stands out when you add some over-the-knee boots! An everyday look is now elevated with much more style simply because of the type of footwear, which is why they’re always on fashion lists for fall and winter.
So know that you know why they’re a closet staple, here are some great ways to style over-the-knee boots!
- Pair with leggings or skinny jeans
This look is the most convenient and easiest to pull off (not to mention really comfy!). But if you really want to elevate the look, go with leather or “liquid” leggings to add some edge to the look. But if you do choose to go with skinny jeans, make sure they fit comfortably inside the boot!
- Mini skirts and dresses
When wearing over-the-knee boots with mini skirts or dresses, you want to stay away from looking like Julia Roberts in “Pretty Woman.” This look can be fun and flirty when done right, which translates to making sure your outfit is balanced by not wearing anything too revealing, which can cheapen the look. An on-trend sweater, mini skirt and over-the-knee boots make for a great colder season outfit!
Fashion Trends: End of Fall Styles
New season brings new trends. Summer No More. This is Fall and Soon Winter.
The sweaters and trenches are stepping in. Flip-flops are changed with boots. Many bloggers were awaiting the new season particularly because of the fact that now it is possible to mix some of the summer wardrobe pieces with new fall ones. The new fall fashion trends were presented on the fashion weeks around the world and everyone just waited for the colder weather. Instagram feeds are already full of the new things that are already out there. As we follow them, and we want to have the same look from the runway on ourselves, there is a question about how to incorporate them in real life. Well, here is a list of the currently biggest fall fashion trends and how to wear them.
The color of love and wine is the color for this fall. Pantone announced it few months back, and even though many thought this is too bold color for fall season, it appeared to be exactly what we need. The rainy days are coming and they are here to stay for quite some time. So, bring a color into your day life with red. It is a warm color, and several designers choose it for their runways. What was most eye-catching were the over-the-knee red Fendi boots. They are already making a boom on the streets around the world. Be bold and go red!
No one predicted that velvet will be such a huge trend for this fall. If you want to be trendy, consider buying at least one velvet piece that has tailored suiting. The structure of the velvet material itself is very comfortable for wearing. It is appropriate both for work, day and night occasions. The best looks are often achieved when it is paired with some similar fabric, and for this fall, the metallic velvet is a must.
Big Puffy sleeves
The big sleeves were big trend for the summer season and they are continuing to be as strong this fall. This 80’s trend made big comeback and the sleeves come in all lengths and sizes. The shirts are retro with big shoulders, dramatic as they were back in the ‘80s. Paired with jeans and ankle boots, they are perfect combination for the day.
No, it is not New Year’s eve yet. Glitter is everywhere, day and night. The runways were full of glittery boots and they came in all colors, models and heel heights. This is the biggest shoe trend that is in the fashion world right now, just after the mules that very popular during the summer.
The biggest trend among the accessorizes are the pearls. The old, classic, Tiffany pearls. They were designer’s choice for fall 2017 lines. This fall it is allowed to wear the pearls as much as you want, as many as you want. The classic pearls are transformed into more refined and modern way, suitable for all generations. The pearls, as details, were spotted on loafers, sweaters, shirts, bags, hair bands brooches… Literally everywhere. Sneak into your mother’s jewelry box and borrow them – the more vintage they are; the greater fashion effect they will have.
