Styling Up in Winter

I have touched upon this subject before and it is something I have a battle with every single year. Let's just get into it shall we, I am writing about dressing for winter and why it is so difficult; well for me it is anyway. Not for those lazy days but if you have an occasion to go to and want to look stylish.

I'll always go with the one rule of layering, will never change my mind on that! There is nothing worse than wearing a million layers, big winter coat and all the winter accessories and feeling like a sweaty mess as soon as you hit the slightest bit of a heated room/building. 

Do you ever see those memes circulating the internet with a ridiculously fashionable and oh so effortlessly beautiful person rocking that winter look and then to the right there is someone wrapped literally head to toe in an oversized scarf; yeah this is what I am talking about and yup that is me.

I find it so hard to feel stylish in winter, I always dress for warmth than looking nice. This year I thought there has to be a way around this feeling and I think I may have cracked it.

Knitwear, the thicker the item the better, especially oversized jumpers are right on trend and this allows you to wear a cute little cami top underneath for the added warmth layer. The tighter to your skin the better (this way you aren't working on looking like a michelin man). 

As you have your key layers and warmth it does mean that you can rock a thinner jacket such as a leather one or suede one in my case. I know this sounds so simple but the amount of times I have questioned myself on whether I am going to be warm enough is ridiculous. 

The best thing about this is the cute winter accessories you can style up the look, I went for leather gloves this time as they look more sophisticated, luxurious and well the leather grips to the steering wheel better when driving. I also went for this cute double pom pom hat, I mean just look at it!! It also means I don't need to make as much effort with my hair too giving you a little more free time in the mornings but a hat is a great way of keeping you warm and looking stylish. Anything with a pom pom works right?! 

I'm not going to beat myself up when it comes to styling in winter, it can be so difficult with your head going in many directions, do I go for warmth? Do I go for style? But you can do both!!
