“Life is too short to wear boring clothes.”
Most girls think that it is difficult to look different and stylish every day during the winter season. It’s because they feel that there are less options available to experiment or because they think that if they decide to go for looking good, they might forget dressing up according to the season. However, that’s not how it is. This article, Crop Tops & Cardigans: Tips for dressing up for winter, is a short guide for all those girls who think winter wardrobe only includes sweatshirts, sweater and jackets.
The best thing that I find when it comes to dressing up for winters is layering. Because it’s cold outside, you can stop worrying about wearing just your sweater or a jacket. I would be happy to wear both. You can leave your hair open, wear accessories without worrying about the fact that they’ll be uncomfortable and there are so many options when it comes to accessorising. It’s not just the scarf but also the option for different types of caps that are available in the market, colourful socks that you can wear with your sandals, suspenders, collar pins, belts, cardigans, denim jackets with patch work and a lot more.
In this outfit, I am wearing a black crop top with a denim skirt that I have paired up with these heeled oxford shoes by Knotty Derby. I have also styled the same outfit in a different way by wearing a caged bralette instead of the crop top, black thigh high socks and carrying a side handbag on which I have tied my black scarf. The pictures of that look have been added at the end of the article.
The aim of these two outfits was to show you the ways in which you can style your winter outfits. You must have a long good looking cardigan that you can wear when it’s not too cold outside. Pair it up with a belt around your waist, a scarf that you can also tie up with your handbag later and comfortable footwear like heeled oxfords or block heeled boots. The point is you can definitely experiment with your winter wardrobe instead of wearing the same sweatshirt or sweaters over and over again. Life is too short to wear boring clothes. So, go find something amazing in your wardrobe that you love and style it in your own way.
In this one, my suspenders are clearly visible (which was not my intention) but it’s an easy way to make sure your outfit looks good without wearing belt, which can make your waist and you height, look short.
