Little ways to spice up your winter outfit
Now our winter outfits no longer consist of a very puffy coat and a hundred pairs of socks, it’s time to go back to the wardrobe and reclaim the clothes that aren’t thermal. But how to wear them when the temperature still refuses to resemble the south of France? By styling of course! Head-to-toe, scarves-to-socks, take a read through our top tips that’ll make your winter outfit extra cute.
Wrap it Up!
When we’re battling the cold a hat and scarf often feel more like armour than fashion statements, but there’s no reason why they can’t be both! Besides, now it’s a teeny, tiny bit warmer and we no longer have to opt for the fluffiest, warmest thing to cover our necks, we can afford to be a bit more stylish with our choices. There are so many ways you can make the scarf work for you but our favourite by far is by barely styling it at all!
Behold, the blanket scarf! Practical in both its fashion possibilities and the fact that it can double up as a picnic blanket at any given time (save that for summer!), the blanket scarf is well and truly in. What’s even better is that the type of piece you go for depends on your own style! Whether it’s a soft grey jersey or a double-sided tartan dream, rest it over your shoulders and let it all hang down and you’ll be the ultimate style queen of spring 2017.
The Layered Look
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years the 90s are back and in a very big way. But we’re not just restricted to mom jeans, neon colours and Minnie Mouse inspired hair – the grungy layered look is essential to keeping warm, not to mention a coveted hack to rocking your perfectly put together outfit. Although a plummeting temperature meant we actually had to utilise the zips on our coats, the slightly milder weather means we can flaunt what’s underneath.
Our top tip to rock the layers is to watch out for the length. Make sure each piece of clothing complements each other and flows nicely as a whole look. We recommend trying not to have more than two varying lengths or it makes it a little too hard to follow!
When the only thing we want to wear on our feet are boots, we tend not to pay enough attention to exactly what we’re putting under them. Enter the peekaboo socks! Whilst we do our best to hide the embarrassing fluffy slipper socks beneath the black leather of our boots, another option is to expose them instead! Pull those bad boys up and make the bright colours a fashion choice instead of a faux-pas!
From glitter to slogans, boldly designed socks are all the rage right now, so pick out a pair and show them loud and proud!
Show Some Leg
We all know that wearing a dress or a skirt in the winter is a no-go unless you have a good pair of tights, but it’s high time to ditch the boring black and cover your legs in something a little more interesting. Now while it might feel a little 2010 to be rocking bold, brightly coloured options, instead there are plenty of two-toned monochrome versions with intricate patterns to liven up any dull day.
Luckily for us, the Hunkemöller brand ambassadors have put together a style guide on how to wear our favourite picks from this winter’s collections.
It’s What’s Inside That Counts
Now while you’re not going to be showing your knickers to just anyone, we all know a good pair of lingerie is the ultimate accessory to any outfit. When you feel sexy and confident, you look it too, and let’s be honest, that’s all we really want our clothes to do! Whether you love your comfy T-shirt bra or prefer head-to-toe lace, check out our range of fabulous lingerie to find the perfect fit for you, and complete the perfect outfit, regardless of the season!
