This winter I have fallen even more in love with fashion. I think my obsession for all things knit, cozy and available in turtleneck has grown tremendously. I decided to compile a few of my favourite winter items that have inspired some of my favourite winter looks. If you have the same tastes in clothing as I do, some of these looks may speak to you. For me, these 5 categories are essential in creating my warm but fun looks which consist of: Blanket Scarves, Toques,Turtlenecks, Sweaters & Hoodies
I pulled inspiration for this blog from my first blogs done on VSCO (almost 1.5 years ago). (past blog & here)
These have been my favourite closet go-tos. Each items listed I have warn or will be wearing for upcoming shoots. Some have just arrived via mail and some have been photographed before. If you have been looking for new items to piece ensembles together, perhaps this blog will inspire you! Happy hunting!
The perfect accessory to keep you warm and to add some flare to your style.
Easy to wear and throw over when you are in a rush but want to look presentable. It's essential to find a cut that suits your needs and your body. Being curvy, I find boxier styles don't suit me well. Asymmetrical styles, slits, form fitting and A-lines suit my body best. However, I tend to wear boxier styles as well, I think fashion much like most creative passions is so personal. as the saying goes: "Forget the rules, if you like it, WEAR IT!"
For me, a hoodie is my favourite, comfortable go to! Movies and cuddle sessions are perfect in these! Men's hoodies are MY FAVOURITE! Actually, stealing your guy's hoodie is a rite of passage, am I right? It is in the dating handbook: a girl must always have on her an item of her partner's consisting of sweatpants and/or over sized hoodies. Nonetheless, shopping menswear is one of my favourites. I genuinely like wearing some men wear styles.
Perfect Pairing (this is not apart of the top 5 winter essentials, but a perfect pairing to all listed above)
Leggings are the go-to for all looks for comfort purposes, I even suggest leggings as its own category here. But, leather takes it up a notch from comfort to stylish. Leather aesthetically contrasts with whatever top you wear. It can dress an item up or dress it down depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
