What To Wear To Beat The Weather WarPosted by Styloko
What do you do when it feels like June in the morning, April in the afternoon, and December in the evening? Quite frankly, we’re getting rather annoyed that this increasingly unpredictable weather has thrown our everyday dressing into complete turmoil.
We know we’re not facing this dilemma alone here, so for those who want to keep warm (and dry) but are desperate to step out in their spring gear, here’s a few dos and don’ts on achieving sartorial success in the sog.
DO layer up. Play with textures, colours and prints – the more the merrier!
DO invest in a good trench coat – just thick enough to block out rain and mild wind, yet lighter and less wintry than wool coats (which tend to emit a funny, damp odour when wet. Ew).
DON’T go bare legged. Just because you can see a glimpse of sunshine it doesn’t mean it’s tropical out there. Blue pins with purple veins don’t make for a good look, trust us.
DO brighten up your outfit with statement accessories. Be it a Mary Katrantzou printed scarf or a neon Cambridge satchel, splashes of colour can instantly lift your winter wardrobe (and your mood).
DO wear a hat. Think felt fedora rather than straw panama, though.
DON’T brave non water-resistant footwear. Instead, go for (non-slip) practical shoes that will keep your toes warm and dry. Not that you need another excuse to buy those insanely cute platform trainers from Topshop.
DO jazz up your jeans. Floral printed, tie-dyed or pastel coloured… anything other than black, please.
DO keep warm with loose knits in bright colours.
DO opt for colourful leather jackets as an alternative for outerwear. Warm and practical, yet lively and spring-like.
