Getting cozy with style



With the last post for this year's winter and the years biggest party I thought this would be the most appropriate thing to talk about. Layering is what we all love the winters for. The cozy knits, sassy jackets and those boots, how can you forget.  But I usually see a lot of women not experimenting too much in winters as they don’t really know how to layer certain things, so they stick to the basic-knit and denim. I think we all need to come out of our little shell and look at other wearable options with feeling the chill.


The pear shape
Thats my body type. So i have a few pictures for you to see.  This body type has a full hips with a small shoulders. 
Always remember to layer the upper part of your body, and leave the lower simple.
You can draw attention to your upper half with a sassy jacket or cardigan that ends below or above your hips. Remember your clothing should not begin or end at your hips.
Tops with high necks and bright prints can be a good option to accentuate your bust.
Pick nice tailored pants, preferably straight, that begin above your hip and accentuate your waist. Avoid excessive details around the hip, or large cargo pants.
And ofcourse heels with bright socks do the trick for me, and can do for you too!!






The hourglass shape
Don’t let the layers hide your curves.
The first layer can be a bright top to highlight the upper body layered with a jacket. But avoid jacket with shoulder padding.
High-waisted bottoms can emphasize your hour-glass figure and add length to your silhouette.  Avoid pants that taper at the bottom or belts at hips, as they will only make your hips look larger.
A-line skirts can also highlight your curves. If you are tall a mid-length pleated skirt can be a good option, if petite then go for a short flared skirt.
Knee high boots will always elongate your silhouette.  Avoid ankle-strap shoes.

The apple shape
  1. Your trick should be to accentuate your lower half, and draw attention to your slim legs.
  2. Long shirts will elongate you torso. Avoid ruffles, shoulder details, they will only make you look bigger at the top.
  3. Layer with a waist coat that defines your waist and bust. Its best to keep your upper body sleek and simple.
  4. Show off your legs with shorts and skirts, and go for pants that has a lower rise than your natural waist.
  5. Dark coloured stocking are slimming and add length.
  6. Keep the focus on your legs with ankle length boots.


So those were a few tips that you can keep in mind and never go wrong.  Now some easy layering ideas that you can experiment with this winter.
  • The moist basic- knits over pants. Instead of those pants try wearing your knits with a pleated skirts, and to keep your legs warn you can add stockings.  You can accessorize with a sassy collar piece.
  • For your maxi lovers, add a coat over it and some funky socks to complete the look. You could also add a woolen scarf to keep the neck warm.
  • Layering a t-shirt with a tunic or a-line top can be fun. Add some bright tights.  You can layer a tee over a tunic and complete with a bf jacket and sneakers.
 



 Whatever you choose to wear, don’t forget to wear on thing all the time- confidence and a big smile!!! Happy 2013!! . Party hard
