Some of us are excitedly counting down the days to Halloween, Christmas, NYE or maybe even our birthdays, but there are several others who are finding it difficult to get quite so excited about winter – especially in clothes department.
With the forecast generally worsening worldwide (okay, if you’re in the northern hemisphere), it can be tempting to give up trying to pull together cute, stylish looks and just swaddle yourself in as much wool and cashmere as you can get your hands on. When the skies are nothing more than gray, gray and gray, the temptation to just wear black, black and black is hard to resist.
However, even if you don’t feel like experimenting with power-clashing your favorite prints, it doesn’t mean you can’t try to break out of the monotony of traditional winter monochromes! We’ve scoured the blogosphere to bring you some of the best examples of bold, cold-weather outfits to inspire you to break out of your black phase this season.
So many exciting palettes to livened up our closets throughout fall, so why not carry them through winter, too? Try pairing together all your best blush pieces in contrasting textures for a refreshing, casual look. Rich, nutty browns and forest greens are an easy alternative for an eye-catching office look – or you could really break the rules in an all-white ensemble that’ll have heads turning everywhere from the office to the dance floor.
