A lot of the world still has plenty of winter to come, and by now you might be running out of winter fashion ideas! Thankfully, the current shows are Fall/Winter, so they have plenty of styling ideas that you can start using right now. The Blumarine show in Milan was a particularly great source of inspiration, with all sorts of outfit combinations that would be great for mixing up your normal winter wardrobe.
- For all your formal winter events, try layering a fur coat over a luxe maxi skirt or dress. Fabrics like rich metallic silk or a deep coloured velvet will keep your legs warm while still looking super glamorous.
- To stay cosy while still looking great, an oversized cardigan in fur or thick, soft knit fabric is a great compromise. Wear it with bare legs like the model if your climate allows, or try a pair of on-trend leather (or faux leather) leggings. A slouchy turtleneck and comfy winter boots will complete the look.
- Turtleneck and other high-neck sweaters can look really trendy if you style them right – and of course they keep you warm! A soft camel colour looks chic and is easy to pair with all sorts of different coloured and patterned skirts. A simple mini, as shown at Blumarine, will help keep a heavy sweater streamlined and elegant.
- For the ultimate sexy outfit for winter nights out, pair a pretty but sensible long-sleeved t-shirt with an edgy leather or PVC mini skirt and a pair of statement earrings. Bonus points if your skirt is as shiny as the one shown at Blumarine!
- Blumarine also had a great reminder that traditionally spring-like floral prints can still look great in winter! A dark background and long sleeves make this dress more winter than summer, but you could even try wearing your flowery summer dresses if you layer them properly!
Do you have any more great styling tricks for getting through the winter months?
