Dressing in colder weather can make accessorizing your outfits much more of a challenge. Say no more as there are a lot of great ways to remedy the winter wardrobe blues and dress it up with jewelry. To balance out the heavier fabrics and layers you will want to find pieces of jewelry that are a bit heavier and bolder than some you might wear in warmer weather.
One jewelry trend that works great with heavy winter clothes this season are the big, chunky necklaces and earrings in great contrasting colors that help bring attention to your neckline and add a hint of femininity to it. Depending on whether you prefer warm or cool colors you may want to find great accent colors like reds, light blues or greens. Wonderful accent colors like jade green or even coral pinks that are very in style this season. Another great contrast color is white or ivory in large beads or stones. You can find a variety of different styles of necklaces in long or short lengths depending on what you prefer and what works best with your own individual style and wardrobe. Chunky necklaces work well with long sleeve scoop necks and can even work with other necklines that are popular in winter clothing such as turtlenecks. We love the look of classy long bold necklaces with turtlenecks in the winter.
Long necklaces are a great way to break up the look of heavy sweaters or cardigans in the winter and are also great ways to accent heavier tops. You’ll find a variety of styles of long necklaces that feature an oversized pendant on the necklace. These longer necklaces are a great way to break up the monotony of heavy textures and less skin that is characteristic of winter clothing.
Another great way to help break up the heavier winter textures is long earrings. They really do help to bring attention up to your face and help lighten up the winter clothing layers. Long hoops or other big earrings are my go to piece whenever I don’t have that perfect necklace to go with an outfit. Big earrings are a great way to bring a little more shine and sparkle to your winter wardrobe. We love the look of long dangle earrings with high necklines to help break up or spice up an outfit.
In short, the basic theme for finding the perfect jewelry to help accessorize any winter outfit is generally long lengths for earrings and necklaces and bold chunky pieces to help offset the heavy, thick textures and fabrics so prevalent with winter clothing. You will want to find good accent colors that work with your typical wardrobe pieces and will want to make sure that you have a few good staple pieces. When you can’t find the perfect necklace to go with your outfit you will want to have some good fallback earrings that help give your look that added sparkle and shine and help breakup the monotony of so many layers of clothes.
During colder weather it is easy to get mired down with lots of layers that keep you bundled up and warm, but sometimes it is nice to break out into stylish winter clothes so that you still manage to maintain that flirty, feminine look. Here are a few great winter clothes ideas to help snap you out of the winter clothing doldrums.
Consider the sweater. A piece that you certainly need to wear in the winter and there are some great ways to find stylish sweaters that are not frumpy or plain and will help spice up your winter wardrobe. Take for example the Aspen Motorcycle sweater by Velvet by Graham and Spencer. A great retro inspired piece the Aspen Motorcycle sweater is a cropped sweater featuring a fold over neck along with an off center zipper from top to bottom. We also love the great zipper details on the pockets and the epaulets on the shoulders with matching black buttons. An adorable sweater that is certain to be a staple piece in your wardrobe. This sweater style is a must have for cold winters and this sweater is so warm and cozy and still looks super stylish on.
Another winter staple is the turtleneck. Turtlenecks have really become timeless pieces that really never fade completely out of style. While the basic concept of the turtleneck is fairly standard between tops, but you really can find a variety of different details or accents that make them very distinctive. Consider the Catelina Turtleneck by Velvet with pleats at the neckline. This turtleneck features a baby jersey cotton and the turtleneck does stay in place better than other turtleneck styles and we adore the pleats which give a basic style a little added feminine touch. Compare that turtleneck to the Discharge turtleneck by AlixK or the similar Cappy short sleeve turtleneck also by AlixK. These turtlenecks feature a gathered turtleneck that also stays in place, but creates a beautiful feminine touch on an otherwise plain turtleneck. AlixK is known for their hand embroidery detailing every top and we love the added details like the darts that give added stylish accents to basic style tops.
Another great example of stylish winter clothes is various designs of wrap sweaters. We love the Audrey wrap sweater by designer Laurie B. This sweater is a lightweight fabric blend that feels luxuriously soft. The fabric includes a cashmere and viscose blend so it feels silky soft on. The wrap is a faux wrap but with a contrasting tie around the waist that gives it added depth and a subtle feminine touch. Wraps as a whole are a great piece for your winter wardrobe and you will see them in a variety of styles and colors.
In short, these are simply a few examples of great ways to insert stylish winter clothes into your wardrobe. Of course you can find a variety of wonderful stylish pieces for colder weather that really do give you great feminine styles to incorporate into your wardrobe you just have to look for them. Don’t forget to accessorize any of your favorite winter pieces with scarves or cute hats as appropriate as great economical ways to bring in added depth and style to your winter clothes.
