Hey Peeps! Christmas and new year are around the corner. You simply cannot overlook the festive vibes when passing through the city and its streets with decors galore. Aren’t you excited about the upcoming festivities and want to look stylish for winter parties?
I have been avoiding lots of events because I hate to get ready in winters. But every now and then, you simply cannot avoid it. Then worrying sinks in – how to look stylish and glamorous in winter parties?
Use Thermal Underwears
If you stay in a city which is visited by a wave of cold wave and you feel the freezing temperatures biting on your skin, do not skip your thermal underwear. Especially if you have decided to wear skirt or dress in winter, use tights or thermal wears to keep your legs and thighs warm.
Shimmer or Sequin Dress is your best friend
Who says we can’t wear a dress during the cold months? You need to be particular about the dress and its thickness to feel warm underneath. Try wearing dark colours and heavy fabric dresses. LBDs would still save the day if you just choose a solid one.
I am wearing this beautiful shimmer dress by H&M I got last month. I had even worn it in a nightclub during my Bangkok trip. Unfortunately, I have lost those pictures due to memory card malfunction and couldn’t share the look I created.
Layer it up for a glamorous winter
You can be as creative as possible with layering. I stay in Bangalore which is blessed with a salubrious climate throughout the year and the mercury rarely dips below 14 degrees, even in the winters. So, a lightweight jacket or a knitted shrug is enough for us.
However, if you are from a different part of the country where you come across harsh winters, layer wisely. You can go for a lightweight sweater, leather jacket, trench coat or even an overcoat. I just wish I could use them to style my winter looks, however, I do not have any use for them in here.
In this look, I am wearing a plaid lightweight jacket by H&M.
Stockings or knee-high socks
Both stockings and knee-high socks are stylish and comfort in their own way. If you want to show some skin you can go with knee high socks otherwise I feel stockings are more comfortable yet you can flaunt those shapely legs in them during winters.
Boots are essential. Period.
I love wearing boots and the only good thing about winters (I hate wearing too many clothes) is that I can wear knee high boots. I have this pure leather boots which I rarely wear. When I need to look stylish for winter parties, boots are my go-to companion for a short dress.
Shimmer Beret to look stylish for winter
Honestly, I feel that this shimmer beret completes my look for a glamorous winter party. It adds a dash of retro chic to the overall look. If you have flowing tresses, I recommend you neatly tie your hair and then don a beret. Believe me, you won’t regret it!
Makeup & skin care tips for winter
- Before you apply makeup, use moisturiser. Moisturising is must during winter
- Smoky eyes look fab and you would not even risk smudging it on count of no sweat days
- Wear dark colour lipstick, preferably satin finish. If you have chapped lips please avoid using matte lipsticks
- Always moisturise your hand and feet too
