Happy New Year, Fabs! This New Year will be full of fabulous and fun fashion, I promise! But let’s face facts. All across the globe, millions of girls like you and me are facing the age-old winter wardrobe dilemma: How do you face a fashionable new year with the same old drab weather? So if you’re staring in your closet confused about the best way to achieve a chic start to your year, relax! I’m here to help you stay cozy AND cute!
The No. 1 key to a frump-free winter wardrobe is managing volume. Sweaters, knits, cardigans and capes are all great styles to greet the cold. Here are some quick rules to keep you warm and on-point.
One of my favorite looks in winter is a thin gauged knit. Crewneck, V-neck, it’s all fair game. Focus on the material. You want softer, more delicate fabrics that round out the shoulder. A V-neck can break the lines of a standard knit. I like to tuck a thin wool sweater into jeans or a skit. It’s a great way to keep a more tailored look and cut down on bulk.
When you pick a sweater or top, I look for styles with a little stretch around the hips and waist and pair them with a thinner bottom like a skinny jean cigarette pant. Knits need shape to bring your look to life.
If you’re not into knits at all, you can achieve a spectacularly similar look with a thick scarf, which can be styled any number of ways to add a little drama to even the most basic outfit. It’s a great way to get the knit look without fully committing. We all love an accent piece!
Frump-free is the way to be! Who’s with me?
