In my experience winter time is often the least favourite season for majority of people. No one really likes short days, cloudy sky, wind, and rain, or snow, depending where in the world you are. However, it’s not actually all doom and gloom, it is really the matter of perspective. Like with many other things in life, you can keep focusing on the negatives and go into seasonal depression mode every year, or you can look for the positives instead.
Growing up, I always excitedly waited for the first snow. It would often happen over night, so in the morning I would jump out of bed to look out of the window just to confirm that the whole neighbourhood is finally covered with a pristine white snow blanket. My childhood memories of getting 10 layers on before leaving the house, warming hands on a hot cup of tea after coming back home, or just peaceful moments of watching snowflakes dancing outside from the warmth of our home fill my heart with joy and love for that least favourite season of the year.
As I grew older and my love for fashion grew, I’ve also found that dressing for colder seasons can be just as exciting – if not more – as dressing in spring or summer. And if you’re not with me on being slightly more positive about winter, I hope I might just slightly change your mind 🙂
So, why is dressing in winter not so boring?
When, if not in cold weather, can you pull off a layered look without dying from a heat stroke? You can go as simple as a turtle neck under a dress, or as elaborate as you wish really. Key thing – it will definitely keep you warm.

This fall/ winter trend which will also keep you warm and comfortable when the temperature drops. Great to pair with skinny jeans and chunky knitwear or with midi skirts and dresses which will create an interesting overlay.

Yes, that’s right – wearing white and off-white palette never looks as good as in winter months. For the very brave once I totally recommend a total look in off-white – it looks super elegant and classy. Just try to avoid coffee the day you wear it!

This accessory can make or break an outfit (and make your mom happy that you finally keep your head warm). Every fall/ winter designers come up with plenty of variations on more classic and more our there hats providing you an opportunity to experiment, like this year – with bucket hats, balaclavas and caps you have plenty of choice to make your statement. Or not.

Another accessory that will protect you from the wind and finish your look with another layer. Whether you go for a matching colour or a statement piece (like the slogan scarfs), it will be definitely a trendy response to cold.
