How To Make Your Winter Wear Look Chic

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.

Walking In A Winter Wonderland

The weather has been all over the place this winter, and that means so has your wardrobe been. Shoes are the hardest part to figure out- no one likes wet, cold, uncomfortable feet- that makes for a long day. We are loving this footwear, and we thing you will, too.

winter shoes for men

 

Waldlaufer has a huge variety of women’s shoes- but did you know they offer mens, as well? It’s a great time to check them out. We have been wearing the Men’s Jack Hayo Waterproof Oxford Schiefer shoes for about two months now, and using them for everything from daily wear to hiking and even to the gym a few times- they remain sturdy, easy to wear for long days out and about, supportive, and they do keep your feet dry.  They are a bit heavier then your average shoe, but they are also pretty rugged since they offer so much protection.  This ankle high waterproof boot will protect your feet all winter long- and beyond.  You won’t be leaving these in your closet when the season changes.  Since it is made with a waterproof membrane, it prevents moisture from entering the shoe.  The soles have great traction and durability as well as a supportive footbed. Get yours at https://www.waldlaufer.com for $190.

Perfect for winter (or any season but summer, I’d say) are the water-resistant and insanely comfortable new Luana ankle boots from Arcopedico.  These have very fast become my favorite boots, and perhaps my favorite shoes in general. So soft, so comfortable- and ethical as well. Made entirely of vegan materials (that never hurts, a “good for the environment” choice) they are easy to pair with almost any outfit, or to dress up and dress down.  These look like suede, but are actually Lytech with a self-adjusting side elastic for a super comfortable fit. With rounded toes and a slight wedge heel, these are actually machine washable as well. Really. Three colors available, Black, Brown, or Burgundy. Get yours for $105 at http://arcopedicousa.com
