Winter Fashion to Get You Out and About

When winter weather provides cold days that seem unbearable, remember that your clothing is a great place to start for looking and feeling warm and fabulous.

Yes, it’s cold outside! When the temperatures in Northern Virginia are freezing, it can be hard to imagine leaving the house.  However, we all have places to go, whether it’s to work, running errands or meeting up with friends and family, life must go on no matter the temperature outside.  So when the urge hits to hibernate inside next to a fireplace, watch Netflix and drink hot chocolate, remember that all you really need is a good wardrobe and the right attitude and winter becomes bearable.

Here are a few tips on how to feel good, look good and stay warm during the cold days of winter:

First, consider a wonderful and warm winter fabric: denim. Not only is denim a flexible fabric that can be worn year round but denim can accommodate most occasions; it can be dressed up and dressed down, and with the right fit, flatters any body shape.

Here are a few looks to help you look fabulous in denim this winter:

Game night: Don’t let your friends down when invited to Saturday’s game night. Go! You are the best Pictionary player in Northern VA so you must be there to win. Cozy sweaters are a thing right now; add a pair of straight-leg jeans and a black bootie
boot and you are ready for the night. Friends will be glad to see you and will hug you more than usual due to your stylish cozy sweater.

Date night: Date nights are a must and should not stop due to cold weather. It’s important that you keep that fire burning, especially during the winter, right? When headed to dinner and a movie with your loved one, it’s important to look a little
different than you do around the house. Yes, comfort is important and despite the discomfort of a cold winter night, be brave and bold; go ahead and wear your sexy stiletto heel boot when dining out, grabbing a drink or heading to a double date night with friends! Pair your boots with a slim-fitted jean, a turtle neck sweater and a blazer. This same look can be equally cute with a flat knee boot. Top it off with a bold red or pink lip and your look is complete. And not only are on trend and on point, but you’re warm too!

Outside fun: When winter outdoor adventures come calling you, be sure to dress for warmth and style yourself with layers. Layers, layers, layers add texture, interest and warmth! Comfy boyfriend jean are perfect for the outdoors in wintertime. They are loose and comfortable and offer enough leg space so that you can add a thin pair of leggings underneath. For more style on top, layer your tops: start with a cami or tank top, long sleeve tee and then a sweater. Wear a pair of fur lined cozy Ugg boots—no socks required, of course you can always wear socks too for that extra layer of warmth.
