A Naturally Colorful Winter

To show you more of what to expect this winter, here’s some chatter about natural and fancy colors, too!

Lets start with some neutrals! They are a great way to pull an outfit together as a base color. One recent, popular neutral is brown. It brings a variety of options for colors, it’s like having a blank  canvas that you can paint anything you want. Just like navy or black, brown can round up a look and with bright colors such as yellow and reds; you can create a beautiful combo. Earthy brown, brown on brown, with varied textures and materials make any outfit great. So can layering, as over layering is a way to keep warm and naturally protect ourselves from the elements. Layering a transparent shirt under a spaghetti strap dress, for example, is a look that many have pulled off.

If you don’t want to layer with a scarf, you can get away with a turtleneck in so many different knits than just cable, such as twist knit, cashmere, and techno stitch. Besides turtle necks there’s a variety of many different sophisticated and contemporary knitwear to choose from, such as a V-neck or plunging neck line. Those styles and knits are shown in the picture here, check it out!

For more sophistication coming your way, there exists the mid-calf boots in not-so-outdoorsy, patent leather with a high gloss finish. I love the slouchy styles that have split in the middle, like cowgirl boots.

To spice things up bold accent jewelry and gemstones are the way to go. They brighten up and add more sparkle to any outfit. You would think this would be for the summer, but nope, you can pair your brown sweaters with any brilliant color such as red, orange, and even green!

New Year, New Trends

So far, 2019 has a lot of interesting fashion trends coming our way. The first I’d like to mention is the 1980’s all-time fabulous shoulder pad. Yes, I said it; shoulder pads are IN, under your shirts and ready to pop those shoulders right up. If you want to be really fancy like the ladies wearing these shoulder-padded shirts, try some faux fur jackets on for size. They keep you warm all over, without harming any innocent animals.

Speaking of animals, animal print is still going strong. Floral is revamped with brighter, sassier patterns on just about anything from your head to your toes, especially in scarves. Scarves are beautiful and creative in banana patterns as they look like you took a giant banana and made it a fashion statement around your neck! Another pattern to try is checkered, for your jackets and tops.

Jackets are padded all over this season; not just in your shoulders. The best part about that is they are just about as warming as the faux fur. To keep warm and keep up with the last fashion, layering and even just the illusion that you’re layering is the way to go. Especially for work, you can dress up in layers every day. Contemporary parkas are here to stay and you can layer under them with no problem. Wearing layers and keep your parka open with your favorite patterned scarf is the perfect strut into the New Year.
