(because those fat jackets won’t do the trick)
I’m pretty sure every girls knows the struggle. It’s January, it’s snowy, it’s windy, it’s cold. Your hair gets frizzy because of the snow, you can’t see sh*t because of the wind and you look like you’re a fat, fluffy ball with legs because of the damn cold temperature. Yes, the struggle of winter and still looking like a somewhat acceptable human being, not even talking about looking like a girl, is real. More than real.
And guess what? I (proud pat on the shoulder) discovered some pretty easy ways to still look cute in the wintertime and checked out some amazing products so you don’t have to do this anymore. Thank me later, folks.
Always wear that frizz-defender
And no, I’m not talking about a hairspray, leave-in conditioner or other fancy hair product here. It’s the good old hat that’s doing the trick.
Remember your mom saying you should wear that hat she bought you, so you won’t get an ear infection and other life-threatening diseases? Well, she was right. And besides, it’s the best weapon to prevent that moisture outside messing with your beautiful mane.
I’m a huge fan of those simple grey or black beanies, Esprit got them in a ton of different variations and colours so if you were looking for one of those, definitely head over to Esprit and get one, or maybe one in every colour heheh.
Monochrome’s the winter tone
Keep it simple and monochrome with the colours you are wearing. Your two sizes too large winter coat is doing the trick pretty well when it comes to catching attention. Try to avoid too bright colours, textures and mixture of too many different colour pallets. Stick to grey, black, white, soft brown and camel tones and if you feel colourful that day, pop an accent with bright shoes, a bag or scarf. But don’t go overboard. Especially in winter monochrome’s key to looking (somewhat) cute(er).
Combined with a grey hat this coat from Pull & Bear would totally rock your winter outfit! What do you think?
Show them slim legs!
I know, it is winter, you are freezing, but you wish you could wear a thinner jacket just to show off a liiiittle bit that you still go to the gym and actually look gorgeous under that scarf-jacket-jumper-combination you’re wearing. But hey, thank god you don’t have to wear skiing-trousers on your way to town, so why not show them legs? Opt for skinny jeans or leggings in winter (because what in the world is more comfortable than leggings, duh?), that way you don’t look that much out of shape. And let’s be honest, winter is basically the only time of the year that you can go out in stuff that looks like pyjamas, so don’t miss the chance to do so girl!
This legging I found at Esprit is by far one of my favs! The seam down the sides makes your legs look super slim and the material of it is perfect for winter.
Moisture in and out
We already talked about how we looove the moisture outside (ehem, not), but what’s really important is to give your lips and skin a little touch up in winter and moisturize them richly. Cracked lips and dry skin are typical signs of winter coming, so if you haven’t already picked up some moisturizing products from the store, you should do that quickly and get your face a nice refreshment. Having glowing skin and soft, shiny lips will immediately enhance your natural beauty – no matter what you are wearing to stay warm inside.
The products from Lush will definitely help your skin to get all that moisture and care they need in the cold months.
Don’t be scared to cozy up!
As I said before, winter is basically the only time where you can go out in your favourite leggings, fuzzy socks and this huge jumper you usually only wear at home. And come on, what’s better than feeling like you’re at home when you’re actually out doing stuff? Well, nothing I guess. So don’t be afraid to get in that sweater you love so much and rock winter like a pro!
I love love love turtlenecks in winter! This one from Esprit is super cozy and thick, and (bonus points ahead) a cut on the sides of the sweater, which makes it look super flattering and a bit more interesting than a normal turtleneck. And what I like doing is to put my hair inside the neck, this looks stunning and also protects your hair from the moisture outside. Double checkpoint, I’d say.
What are your tricks to survive a cold, windy winter like this one? I’m excited for some comments down there!
