One of the things I've yet to get used to is having a different wardrobe every couple of months.
Mixing summer and winter pieces are a great way to get creative with your style. Adding pops of color and textures add a refreshing take to your winter wardrobe. This How-to-Style Sunday is all about how to wear summer favorites in the winter.
Summer Favorites in the Winter: Colorful Tops to Wear
Just because the days grow colder doesn’t mean you should put every one of your summer tops away. Adding elements like a long-sleeve shirt underneath a flowy top and suede shoes will add a Fall/Winter feel.
Playing with textures and patterns in the winter is key. This Zara top is the perfect piece to add interesting textures to any winter outfit. I paired the top with my favorite H&M boyfriend jeans, but you could also dress the top up with a black pencil skirt for a more sophisticated look.
The best way to choose the right colors for the season is to look at the palettes created around you. Bright oranges, burnt reds and blossoming pinks and purples are abundant in the city and compliment each other well. As a blogger I’m constantly looking for elements found in nature to make a complete look; you’d be surprised how much inspiration is already around you.
Clutches are my go-to purses during the winter. With all the extra bulk in coats and layers, I’m all about carrying as little as possible. Envelope clutches are simple and versatile. As a person studying minimalism (mainly due to lack of storage space), I prefer to just walk out the door with my phone, keys and wallet. Find a clutch that allows for the bare essentials; you’d be surprised how much easier it makes your day.
I wore my Intentionally Blank shoes all summer long and love taking them into the colder season. To do so, pair them with fun tights or socks to keep the piggies warm all winter. This day was particularly cold but not enough where I couldn’t wear them solo one more time.
Have a favorite summer piece you still want to wear this winter? Tell me all about it! Leave a comment below. Until next time.
