Be Chic In The Chill Weather
Winter time is my least favorite time of the year. The weather is cold and its gets dark so early that you can’t get anything done. I can’t even work on photos taken because by the time I get off work the sun has already come down. I imagine that it must be even worse if you live somewhere really cold and icy like Boston or NYC. Ladies, if your career requires that you dress chicly or if you simply require that of your self, don’t let the yucky weather stop you from dressing up. Think chic AND cozy for the wet, cold weather. Skinny jeans work over-time: layer them with tee-shirts and fur. Layer cashmere dresses with chunky nekclaces and long gloves and wear them short and tight with over the knee boots and scarves. There is so much that you can do for the winter time if you remember to layer.
I don’t like to shop for the winter because we have a really short winter here in Texas. It only gets cold in December and stays cold until February and then the weather returns to normal. I have a few winter items and I work them in with my year round items.
Some of the items that I have invested in over the years and am still using are long leather gloves, a leather jacket, a pair of over the knee boots, a pair of leather booties, a bright colored scarf and a few lightweight cashmere turtlenecks. Those items are classics and I use them every winter.
One of my favorite looks to wear in the winter time is wearing my statement necklaces with my winter wardobe. I feel like if you have on the simplest black cashmere dress with your leggings, throw on your fur, let a statement neckline complete your look and call it a day. It’s so chic, especially when you are all bundled up with your coat hiding inside it all the fabrics like hidden treasures while the only thing anyone can see is your fabulous necklaces. A perfect winter fashion treat! Have a nice weekend to everyone!! xoxo Nini Nguyen
