Ahh, winter! The time of year when the days get longer and the weather gets colder. We decorate our homes with lights and garland while we dance and sing along to classic Christmas carols.As the season changes and the colder weather sets in, our fashion choices are changing too.
Trends switch from bright colours and light t-shirts to warm shades and cozy sweaters. There are always those typical trends that change with the seasons. In winter, we find that many neutrals like black, gray, brown, navy, and white, and seasonal colours are used. Burgundy, forest green, plum, cobalt blue, gold and silver are what seem to emerge during this time of year. Along with colour changes, you should start digging through your closet for sweaters and warm accessories.
Trench coats, cable-knit sweaters, fuzzy boots, hats and chunky scarves are what everyone is turning to. But the winter season doesn't have to be boring and ordinary; there are many new trends appearing on the runways this year. Chambray shirts - denim button-ups - are a favoured article of clothing this holiday season. Pair it with galaxy print pants and you’ll be set for a movie marathon with your friends.
Want something more edgy and tough? Then the military trend is for you. Dark colours, leather, spikes, combat boots - go the whole nine-yards! It's the type of clothing that gives you that rebellious look: dark and unruly.
Not into the "bad-girl" look? Try the elegance of Old Hollywood glamour. From the modest styles of Audrey Hepburn to the risqué looks of Marilyn Monroe, there is something for you! Soft pinks, ladylike silhouettes, crisp whites and demure cuts are what you want to aim for to achieve this '20s inspired style.
Wondering what to wear to your holiday parties? Well, MORE News has got you covered! Who said you can't wear bold colours in the winter? Whip out some jewel tones. Jewel tones are richly pigmented colours that resemble gemstones. They are very dynamic and distinct. You can say that they are the "neon colours" of the winter season. Get yourself a peplum (an article of clothing that has a short overskirt around the waist), dress in a bright jewel tone colour, throw on some heels and you’ll be ready to dance the night away. If your dress is a little too plain for your taste, try the Peter Pan collar necklace. This necklace is a small, usually flat collar with rounded ends that meet in the front. It brings a cute element to any and all outfits. Whether you sport the tough look or the sweet look, there is something for everyone this winter!
