Colder days don’t have to mean hiding away your great outfit behind bulky layers or a single coat. You can look just as fashionable in fall, winter, and in spring as you do in summer or indoors. The trick is to have high-quality outdoor options and know-how to accessorize so that you can look and feel stylish even if it’s too cold to unbutton your coat.
Outdoor fashion needs to be as practical as it is beautiful, no matter the season. To improve your outdoor looks, get started by following these tried and tested tips:
Choose Versatile and Hardwearing Footwear
Spring goes through a lot of different seasons in a single day. When choosing footwear to wear in spring, you want long-lasting and hardwearing. A good place to start is actually at footwear commonly used out in the fields, like cowgirl boots. These have been remixed and updated in design so that they are as much a style staple as they are a great, hardworking boot that will help take you wherever you want and need to go, rain or shine.
Invest in Quality Under Layers
Layers are your best friend during the transition seasons. You want to be able to take on or put on clothes as you go to suit the ever-changing weather patterns. Underneath all of these layers, however, should be a moisture-wicking base layer.These layers can be found in sports stores. They are notable because they work to keep you dry and insulated. You can find a variety of different options, from tights to t-shirts to even long-sleeve tops. Have a variety of types so that you can hide them under your outfit and be stylish, warm, and dry all at once.
A Waterproof, Fashionable Coat
You will want a fashionable coat that works to keep the rain and haze off of your skin. A great classic to consider for spring is, of course, the trench coat. The trench coat is a style staple, and with so many colors and designs, you can find one that suits your wardrobe wonderfully. To get even more use out of it, invest in a waterproof treatment for your coat to keep yourself dry and your coat in great condition.
Accessorize Your Outdoor Look
The best way to elevate any look is with accessories. This is true for the outfit you wear under your coat, and it’s true for when you are bundled up, and your coat is your primary outfit.
Look into belts, scarves, hats, and shoes. Belting your coat with a special statement belt that matches your shoes can immediately pull a look together. As for scarves, you can wear them on your head, your neck, as a belt, and even as a statement pop of color on your purse or bag.
Use color theory to direct the use of your accessories and choose either a monochrome, two-tone, or three-tone look for an effortless style that works from day to day to help you stand out and look different when you are out and about.
