*Winter is certainly one of the most awaited seasons of the year, especially since fashion evolves considerably and there’s just so much to choose from. The leather jackets come out, the sweaters, and of course, the cutesy Ugg boots that are so loved by all.
However, there are only so many style icons that you can follow before you make the conscious decision of gaining an upper hand on your own style by creating your own fashion statement. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a role model, but that it’s always better to experiment with what you might feel is the best thing for you.
It’s All about Contrasting This Season
Although many African American women would not dare to wear contrasting colors, this season and this year is all about that life. Pairing contrasting colors with something hip, such as a denim shirt or jacket can certainly help you stand out even in the most overcrowded places. The amount of combinations that can be made just to enhance even the simplest of outfits is countless. You don’t need to stick to neutral shades just because its winter. In fact, contrasting shades are more popular than ever before!
Keep It Casual
Just because its winters doesn’t mean you should place ten layers on your body – unless you want to, of course. Keep it casual this season with oversized sweaters and boyfriend jeans. There are a ton of different types of sweaters that you can find, but if you opt to stick to washed out or warm colors, they can help you stand out even more by keeping you warm in the winters. They won’t just make you feel comfortable; they’ll also make you stand out among all of your girls!
No matter what, you can never go wrong with accessories. Adding accessories to complete your overall wardrobe can certainly make you feel accomplished, especially if you opt for the correct shades that promote warmth in the cold, cold months of winter. Pair your look with some cool shades and a great pair of earrings to ensure that there’s nothing that you’ll be lacking this winter.
Layer It Up
You can never go wrong with Cami prints and layers. If you feel like stepping out in lose pants and a t-shirt, just throw on a jacket, a scarf and you’re good to go!
