There is beauty in winter, with the first snowflakes, the ice skating opportunity, houses covered in snow and the romance that could bloom this season.
Of course, with the changing of the season comes a different set of fashion rules and guidelines. And to help you survive the cold without looking frumpy, let me share to you my top 10 rules for winter dressing.
Rule #1 – Sleeves all the way
Everything should have sleeves. It’s really cold out there, you know? Sweaters are perfect for this since they provide comfort and warmth. But besides that, sweaters can add life and colour to your bland winter ensembles because, as you know, they come in a different designs, prints, sizes and colors. No matter what design you choose, sweaters can add oomph to your outfit. So if you prefer something oversized as opposed to those with snug fit, don’t worry because you can still look stylish in them. All you have to do is just learn how to wear slouchy sweater.
Rule #2 — It’s all about the scarves
Although initially, they’re designed for additional protection, they’re now considered essential winter fashion pieces. Just learn the different ways to tie scarf and you’ll be on your merry way looking chic as ever. It’s as if winter is made just for you.
Rule #3 — The shoe queen
Although boots are an obvious choice for the snowy season, don’t limit yourself to them only. Ballet flats, pumps and even sandals can be worn in the winter. Just let your creativity flow and you’ll find lots of ways to keep your feet from freezing.
Open Toe Booties
Rule #4 — The coat of love
Why blend when you can stand out? While neutral shades, like black and grey, are a safe choice this winter, it doesn’t mean you have to conform to the norms. Choose the brightest, baddest, and most stylish coat you can find, and you’re sure to make winter one heck of a fashionable season.

Rule #5 — Hello shorty
Cold? So what? You can still wear skater skirts and shorts in the winter provided you wear thick leggings underneath them.
Rule #6 — My sweet Beanie
Winters and beanies definitely go together. And not just because they keep your pretty head from freezing but can also be the perfect accessories to your outfits.
Rule #7 — Red, hot, candy-licious
Stand out in sea of white, gray and black by wearing something red. Red coat, red top, red dress — red whatever!
Rule #8 — Dress to impress
Don’t just choose an ordinary dress. Go for a knitted sweater dress. How cozy is that?
Rule #9 — Capes of Stylishness
Add a little drama to your outfits, be it casual or formal, by wearing capes instead of the usual coats and cardigans.
Rule # 10 — Layers of fabulousness
Beat the chill with an arsenal of layered outfits. Layering clothes is a great way to stay warm while looking fabulous.
Have a fashionable, fab winter!
