What To Wear This Season
Written by Akinyi Ragwar / Photographed by Hoda Hammad Winter is right around the corner, so you know what that means—it’s time to bust out your warm boots and cozy sweaters. And of course, update your cold-weather wardrobe! This winter is all about bold colors—think emerald green, mustard, cobalt blue, turquoise, purple, and lovely red—and mixing opposites—soft and rough, glam and grunge—to express your personal style. This winter is also all about working with what you have. Don’t you know fashion never goes out of style? Create new outfits by mixing pieces in your closet with new trendy items to heat up your style! Here are 10 ways to refresh your wardrobe this winter: #1 MIX TEXTURES. While most fabrics can go with just about anything, mixing textures can still be a challenge. This winter, don’t be afraid to play around with various fabrics, but make sure that the textures are proportional. To play it safe, jeans go well with most fabrics—suede, leather, jersey, cotton, flannel, and knit. Create a glam-meets-grunge look by mixing textures. #2 STRIPES ARE EVERYWHERE. Whether it’s vertical, horizontal, or diagonal, you can always make a statement! It is so easy to add stripes to any look, but be cautious—know what stripes look best on you. For a unique look, pair stripes with mixed prints. #3 SKIRTS—ARE YOU READY TO GO LONG ... OR SHORT? This winter, skirts can be worn at any length. The perfect style skirt can bring your look together. With the right fit, a skirt can add feminine appeal to an outfit. If you want to add curves, wear an A-line skirt over some tights. If you want to cover up a little, you can never go wrong with a maxi.
