Cool but Toasty Winter Looks

You know you like to look great and nothing makes you feel better than rocking a new, gorgeous outfit.  It really comes as no surprise since a hot and trendy outfit can work its magic on everyone. Even top celebrities know this.  It’s why they employ high-paid assistants to keep them up-to-date on all the latest trends.

But now that the chilly days are upon us, you’re going into fashion hibernation.  There’s no reason for this, however.  With all of the options out this holiday season, you can get a look that screams effortless glamour that’s both easy to put together and easy on the pocketbook.  Remember, no self-respecting girl lets the cold weather stop her from getting the confidence boost she loves, so let’s start planning.

One thing is certain - you have to put shoes on your feet.  The best way to do this is to start with a great pair of knee-length boots.  For your day look, slip into patterned leggings and pair with a chunky sweater or a poncho-style shawl that is a cozy as your favorite blanket.  A great flirty alternative to leggings is thick tights and a short mini in a bumpy, textured fabric such as corduroy or tweed.    

When it’s time to make the rounds to the holiday parties, shed the leggings or tights and replace with thin stockings.  For the most chic look out right now, top with one of this season’s figure-clinging dresses whose hemlines hit below the knee.  The dress should cover the top of the boots creating a look of pure sophisticated elegance.  If cheeky is more your style and you are feeling really daring, opt instead for a satin miniskirt, top with a metallic camisole and let your toned thighs peek out over the top of your boots.

Want some cool accessories that will keep you toasty warm?  If you’re looking for a “Where did you get that?” reaction from the girls in the office, go for opera-length leather gloves, an angora beret or over-the-knee socks.  For nighttime flare, lean towards skinny belts, over-sized rings, chain handbags and of course, the tallest pointy-toed shoes you can find in red.  With a few additions to your existing wardrobe, you will soon be confidently radiating beautiful vibes and adding your own sparkle to the already glittery holiday season.
