Christmas may be around the corner, but that doesn’t mean everyone is in the festive spirit. During winter, it’s easier to feel a little blue. The sun isn’t out, the weather is cold, and there isn’t as much to be excited about in general. It’s no wonder Scrooge and the Grinch weren’t big fans.
Unlike them, you have fashion to turn to in your time of need. Wearing the latest trends and wearing what makes me happy always does the trick for me, and now it can be your winter blues savior. Take a look at the tips below to find out how.
Short Sleeves And Low Cut
No, this isn’t madness. Yes, it’s cold but one of the worst parts about wrapping up is blocking the sun. There isn’t much of it anyway, so it’s vital to soak up as much vitamin D as possible. Short sleeves and low cut dresses leave a skin uncovered and able to revel in the wintertime rays. Don’t worry if you think you are going to freeze to death because it won’t happen. The trick is to create warmth by using layers. Not only is it fashionable, but it’s light and bright too.
If the idea of unbuttoning a jacket doesn’t sound appealing, there are other ways to beat the blues. It’s all about brightening up your outfit with a mix of colors. Different shades will have a distinctive impact on the brain and improve your mood. Bright focal points may be too loud or you may not feel as if you can pull them off, which is where accessories come into play. Necklaces and earrings and bracelets can incorporate every shade of the rainbow. Visit this website for proof. And, because they’re on the outside, they will never be dulled by your outerwear.
Black And White
This is the oldest combination ever, and one which some women think to be dull. However, the contrast between black and white is amazing when used correctly. Think of a crisp, white shirt where the collar pops out of a thick, wooly sweater. Or a top with cut down sleeves that show off the inner layer. There may not be an array of colors, but they are so effective together that it’s difficult not to feel fresh. Grey and creams also work but it’s trickier to pull off. Remember: there’s nothing wrong with sticking to a tried and tested combo.
As the saying goes, to look good is to feel good. Clothes only go so far; in your time of need, turn to the makeup drawer (or desk, or room in my case hehe). A little blusher on the cheeks can give you a wintertime, windswept appearance, for example. A classic has to be red lipstick. The rouge stands out and offsets the entire style as it’s big and bold and deep in color. There are other hues too, such as purple which is perfect at this time of year.
Change your mindset and everything will fall into place; no matter how chilly it is outside, it can be bright and sunny wherever you go!
