Winter is one of my favorite times for blogging because you can wear many different garments at once without feeling like you're in the middle of the Sahara Desert. It offers more opportunity for outfits and combinations and whatnot. If you are really just drowning in your closet of many clothes and feel completely oblivious as to what is right to wear for this time of year, I gotchu.
Sasha's Winter/Holiday Fashion Guide Part 1:
Military coats and leather paired with softer colors like grey make a nice winter-y contrast (as pictured).
Big sweaters are cool as long as they don't look like you're wearing a blanket.
Get a North Face or black collared winter snow vest to wear under your larger coats and zip up the collar for a bit of a Miu Miu look.
Stars are the symbol of holiday charm, especially in gold.
Over-the-knee socks are good options for wearing shorts or skirts with no tights; however, make sure they aren't overly bulky or leg warmers. Don't even get me started on leg warmers.
Long sleeve turtlenecks will make you look like a 40 year old mom. Just saying. Maybe that was the look you were going for, I don't know. On the other hand, sleeveless ones are fairly stylish.
For dressier times, try intricately designed, weaved, or patterned tights as opposed to normal/plain colors.
Although it seems to be, winter and holiday time is not limited to certain colors - wear whatever colors you want.
