7 Tips For Fashionistas Who Want To Wear Shorts This Winter

When you think summer fashion, you probably have shorts on top of your wish list. These garments have a cool and comfortable vibe that makes them just apt for the sweltering months of the year. Obviously, most of the fashionistas end up packing away their shorts when the winter sets in. But is there a way you can wear your favorite garment even when it is freezing cold? Yes, there is! This is a great thing is for women who want to flaunt their shorts during winter as well. Here are some style tips to help.

Wear a pair of tights underneath

The biggest problem with wearing shorts in winter is that your legs are uncovered and you may feel very cold. But this should not stop you from making a style statement with the garment that you love the most. Just wear a pair of warm tights underneath and rock the winter look like a style diva. In fact, a pair of leather shorts worn with black tights beneath makes a great outfit for a night out in the winter season.

Step up your style with boots

Another way to accessorize your shorts and make them winter-ready is by teaming them up with a pair of high boots. Try knee-length boots made in leather or suede if you want to feel warm and look stylish. What’s more, you can wear warm woolen socks inside and beat the chill in the air. The best part is that your socks will not be visible at all and neither will interfere with your fashionable and chic look.

Pair with a long coat

Wouldn’t it be a smart idea to pair your shorts with a stylish long coat? You can pick one in tweed or wool and slip it over a tee and your favorite pair of shorts. The ensemble can be worn day and night to give you all the comfort you need and add to your style quotient as well. Besides a classic long black coat, you can also try playing with colors such as red, pink and green with the piece you choose for layering.

Great Gifts for an Active Mom

This time of year, I’m always seeing lists about the best gifts for mom. See, I’m even making one. But the truth is, not all moms are alike, and you know best your mom’s personality. A “makeup and jewelry” kind of mom? Flowers, chocolate? Maybe she wants to sleep in and get a massage. (Hint, that’s pretty much everyone, all the time.) Some of that stuff can be sort of a “cop-out”, just going through the motions. Your mom did (and likely still does) a lot for you- make her feel special on days meant to celebrate her. (Dads, if you have very young kids, you are in charge here. Do something besides that macaroni necklace they made in school, yeah?)

As an active mom myself, and one that wears pretty much zero makeup or fussy things like that, I wouldn’t personally love a bottle of perfume or nail polish. I also try to be as eco-friendly as possible, and my family knows that’s important to me. I’m guessing to a lot of other moms out there as well.

Since many “idea” lists focus on candy and makeup, we here at [email protected] thought there should be one with other options out there. This list is for the active mom, eco friendly mom, who is a little less traditional, but pretty cool in her own rights.

Sand Cloud, an environmentally aware company that donates %10 of it’s profits to #SaveTheFishes (help protect and preserve marine life) offers a wide array of items that are sustainable, adorable, and environmentally friendly. From super useful items mom will love like reusable glass bottles with beautiful and fun designs on them to metal straws that you can take anywhere (avoid those unnecessary plastic ones that end up in the nostrils of poor sea turtles and washed up on beaches), soft towels with lovely artwork, or organic tees and tanks, there is something your earth conscious mom will love.  These items are not only beautiful, but useful. In addition, a percentage from each purchase is given to a charity- I can’t think of a mother that wouldn’t be pleased that Mother Earth is also gifted on this special day.  Visit https://www.sandcloud.com to see their collections, and pick out a perfect gift for the moms in your life.

reusable bottle

Yoga lover? Me too, we hit the mat almost daily, it is one of the best ways to center yourself and have a few minutes of peace. It’s fantastic for both mind and body, and if you haven’t yet tried it out, there’s always today. The hype is there for a reason. It’s good stuff. Slightly Buddha is a yoga company for yoga lovers, by yoga lovers. The items on the site are simple, pretty, and express the ideas of living a zen lifestyle. They make, as they describe them, “well made, cute clothes” that offer value to the customer. As the owner describes the collection, “Slightly Buddha is a manifestation of my love for yoga, art and clothes.”  The clothing is soft and comfortable. Pay attention to sizing, as I find that they don’t run typically. Some say that they run large, so you will get the “heads up”, so to speak. Others don’t mention, but you can tell that they run slim. Joggers, for example, are less loose then any others I’ve had, and fit more like leggings, which you can see in the photos. They are perfect for a yoga class, however, so that may be why the design is different. The tanks are also a slim fit, but are a nice feel. Pay attention to the photos and the reviews, they are honest and helpful.  Visit https://www.slightlybuddha.com to see what strikes you- your mom will love the graceful designs that are easy to mix and match, and go from the studio to the couch to errand running and beyond.

Here in the UK, we are getting ready to brace ourselves for the much colder weather that is fast approaching. December is almost here and with it the long, dark days and freezing cold temperatures. However, as you wrap up warm this winter, this does not mean that you will also have to compromise on your style and there are lots of ways in which you can still look chic over the winter season. Here, we are taking you through our top tips as to how you can make your winter wear look chic this year and into the next.  

 

Play With Proportions

The winter season is the perfect time to play around with your proportions. For example, why not layer a gilet over an oversized sweater? You can then pair this up with some fabulous high waisted trousers and a big roomy coat. These roomy coats are very on trend right now and we would recommend going for a fun teddy bear coat as this is the perfect coat to keep you warm this winter whilst also looking chic.

 

Include Colour

Winter can be an extremely dreary month and we tend to reflect this in our clothing with darker colours. However, bold and bright colours are not just simply reserved for the summer months as adding a bold colour in the winter can really add a touch of warmth, whilst looking stylish. Go bolder than you would normally dare to and pair up some thick and cosy gloves with a bright fleece or coat.

All of these products are amazing, and it can be hard to select only one. Diamonds are also the first choice when it comes to the engagement ring.

How to choose the perfect diamond- the 4Cs

Before you select the right diamond, you need to know more about the essential 4Cs. These 4 Cs come from cut, carat, color, and clarity. You need to take all of these into account before purchasing a diamond. Despite the fact that the grading report is important, all of these Cs deserve an analysis.

The Cut

Let’s start with the cut of the diamond. First of all, this is not the shape of the piece of jewelry, it is the combined aspect of the proportions and the finishing. The shape of the diamond is different, and it can be a heart diamond or a cushion diamond. Now, the cut is the most important aspect you should look at when you purchase a diamond.

The Carat Weight

When it comes to the cut, there is a GIA system which indicates the grade of the diamond. There are Poor, Fair, Good, Very Good, and Excellent. Always try to find the best cut grade in a diamond because this is the most important.

The carat weight of the diamond is another important thing to take into consideration. This actually show you the weight of the diamond. For instance, one carat equals 200 milligrams/ 100 points. When you purchase a 1 carat diamond it actually means that you select a 0.2 grams diamond. When you are searching for the perfect diamond, make sure that the carat weight is not too big for your hand.
