Add color to winter’s white blank canvas!
You might be thinking, how can one dress up fashionably in such a season
where you have to wear layers and layers of clothing? Just because winter coats and
pants are getting in the way doesn’t mean your outfit has to be boring.
1. Southwestern and Floral Prints
Southwestern and Floral prints are so in this winter! At first I thought twice about buying a new cardigan with these kinds of prints, but to my surprise, it goes with just about anything and it’s on everything! Leggings, shirts, cardigans and sweaters! Pair a printed sweater with black leggings or grey pants, top it off with a white scarf and a brightly colored beanie and you got yourself a casual outfit, which you can wear if you’re going to a friend’s party or the last day of school before winter break.
Tip: Don’t wear a top that’s printed and a bottom piece that’s printed too! It’s nice to have a little contrast.

2. A-line dresses
Going to a party? A family reunion? These are my problems every winter. I have a lot of cousins, and every day during winter break there’s a different kind of celebration. A-line dresses and floral printed ones are still in, even though flowers aren’t really blooming anymore. Striped and polka-dotted dresses are really great for both casual and formal parties. Wear a black or white cardigan over this cutie of a dress and you’ll be looking cute and dressed for the occasion.
Where to get?
Girls striped star dress - J Crew
3. Army green, burgundy & khaki
Army green, burgundy and khaki are colours that I mostly see in the mall these days. Especially for young boys. Boys aren’t really as fashionable as girls, but I bet they like to look handsome and cute too! So for all the boys out there, wearing a plaid or striped shirt underneath a green or navy blue jacket would look good with any pair of jeans. Add a pair of combat boots or converse and you’re all set!
Where to get?
Boy Pants - Uniqlo
Sweater & Pants - Marks and Spencer
4. Animal Sweaters
Everyone loves animals, sweaters with cute cats, dogs and deer on them are
trending this fall/winter season. Sweater dresses with any colored tights or leggings underneath look really adorable. For boys, wearing a collared shirt underneath sweaters like these will get the aunties pinching your cheeks for sure!
Where to Get?Animal Printed sweatshirt: Monsoon
5. Statement Accessories
Whether you’re a girly girl, a music lover, an animal lover or a
gamer, you can always add something to your outfit to make a
statement that says ‘ME.’
Trying to stay warm but can’t listen to your tunes? Never fear! I found this earmuff headphone at the mall and it was such a perfect gift for my sister. You can listen to music and keep your ears warm!
For all the gamers out there, these days, technology has tablets and phones with touch-screen pads. It’s hard when you need to answer your phone or play something but you don’t want your hands to get cold either. Luckily, there are touch-screen gloves, yup, you’re reading it right. The best part is, they’re not as expensive as they sound!
choosing you’re showing who you are. It’s important to have fun and be comfortable
in whatever you’re wearing, but’s it’s also fun to give new things a try! Have a great
winter and stay warm!
