Color ideas for winter

When you think of winter, you think of being surrounded by white snow and gloomy grey skies, right? Well, some good news; when it comes to fashion, that’s where we can mix things up and add

a splash of color to our lives! The first color, which is also a great drink on a snowy winter night, is bright berry Sangria. Wear it as a lighter scarf, hat, or ear muffs, you’ll be sure to stick out among the crowd.

The next color to mention is not a surprise. Aurora red, a color

perfect for the holidays. Here’s a classy and fun idea, wear it as a shiny dress with black heels and black clutch to keep the red radiant and you standing out from the crowd.

Muave Mist (

Mauve Mist, a unique, light purple is great for this season. Wear it to soften up an outfit away from fall’s darker browns and orange.  Royal blue, a big step away from anything soft, is great when you want to stand out at the work Christmas party or seeing your family for the first time in – well since last winter. You’ll stand out above the rest in a royal blue dress or

even a pants suit when you pair it with red heels.

Misted yellow is the best choice to brighten up those winter blues. It’s a rare and elegant color, but bold enough to bring you cheer for the holidays. I hope  these current winter color trends bring cheer and a more unique wardrobe for the cold and dark weather ahead.

Accessory Trends to keep in Mind for Winter

Arm Warmers (

As winter approaches there are always new things to witness, snowfall, bare trees, and the most noticeable, the steep drop in temperature. That’s when its time to bundle up and sometimes we may feel so bundled that we can barely move. Now, that just sounds miserable! But there some cute accessories to save you and keep you warm this without the hassle.

The first I’ll mention is the arm warmer; knitted finger-less gloves

Elongated Gloves (

that go past your wrist and up to your elbow. They aren’t bulky and enable you to move your hands around while keeping not only your hands warm, but also your arms. But if you’re worried about your fingers getting cold on those unbearable, frigid days then the elongated gloves with regular fit on your entire hand are the way to go.

Leg Warmers (

Some days you might just want to wear leggings and boots. Leggings are the warmest choice for the winter but if you love them,  leg warmers are a great thing to invest in. Some come with lace at the top, bows, solids, and patterns. Just slide them right on before you put on your boots and you are good to go with an extra layer of warmth without having to wear a completely different bottom. Leggings it is!

Now I’ll move on to a must-have item in the winter, the scarf of course. A twist on the classic scarf that we just wrap around our necks is the bow scarf. They add a unique dimension to winter outfits and stand above the rest by giving you a new and exciting look. You can wear them in the front or on the side, either way it will look great.

We’ve got the legs, hands and neck covered, but the ears and

head still need some help! So with that, I have found a hip look to try, the slouchy beanie. It’s easy and adorable while giving you that easygoing experience.  Well, hopefully all of these accessory ideas give you a warm and fuzzy feeling this coming winter.

Tall Boot Trends that will Keep you Warm and In-style

So I’ve already talked about options for ankle boots that are cute and stylish, but we still need options to keep us warm, right? That’s where the knee high boots come in to play! Or should I say, out to play in this lovely fall, almost winter weather!

For starters, there is the wild Wild West boot. A suede, cowboy inspired look that is comfortable with

a bit of a heel. They’re great worn with jeans or a maxi dress. Another great suede style is a simple, classic black boot that can match any colors and dress up your outfit if need be. Black ones with tassels on the zipper add some excitement to the simple black leather boot but isn’t too distracting, the perfect balance!

Lace up boots (

The tall lace up is worn great with your winter shorts or miniskirt! They put a little kick into your step so watch out; you may start to live this fall season on the edge with this chic and sleek look. A chunky, also sleek, cream colored heel is simple and beautiful. It will go great with any pastel colors you have for the season.

A preppy, put-together loafer look combines with a heel and laces as a tall, lustrous boot.  They’re standard enough for a work outfit, but even better for going out with some skinny jeans and a fall jacket to conveniently switch from work to

Two tone boots(

play! Two-toned boots are fun too. Why choose between black and grey, or brown when you can just wear both at once. This style really dresses up a simple pair of jeans and a sweater. A pair of blue suede boots is perfect if you want to add a splash of color without going too crazy, such as sparkles or bright pink.

Hopefully these tall boot options work well for you. The best part about them is they keep the cold air from getting to your legs while being versatile and fun!

Fall in Love this Season with these Coat Trends

It’s that time to turn over a new autumn leaf and take advantage of the most fashionable coat styles to help you keep warm and looking trendy all at once. From short to longer and sleeveless styles, the list seems endless. Let’s start this list by talking about the trench coat. Try a khaki or different color other than black for fall. Some have great details such as a striped collar and leather cuffs near your wrist. These add contrast and will make you stand out from the rest with this new twist on the typical trench coat.

So besides the classic parka, usually insulated with goose down or Thinsulate, try one in denim. They’re best worn with sweaters underneath and leggings with boots. Another jacket great with boots, especially leather, is the moto hoodie jacket. The combination of a fleece hoodie with a leather jacket, it  has a leather torso and fleece arms and hood. This jacket brings comfort and edge all at once.

A very unique coat to dress up your outfit is a the lace overcoat. When you want to stay lady like and classy with the comfort of your sweater and jeans, try one of these. They’re a long open jacket, with the look of a dress patterned with lace and insulated inside to keep you warm. Another unqiue yet classic look is the riding coat, you can wear it between seasons and it is waterproof with a great diamond pattern.

A great coat for every body type is the cape. Its sleeveless and flows away from the body, making it  easy to wear. And another easy coat to wear is a wool wrap coat, which looks like a regular length coat with no buttons or zipper and just wraps around you in the front. I hope this inspires you to get out there and fall for a coat that will help you stand out and feel great!
