How to Be Stylish Despite Unfriendly Weather

Sometimes when the weather outside is gloomy, cold, rainy or even snowy we don’t feel all that happy to get dressed up or even put any effort to do so. This is in some ways justified; I mean, think about it, when it’s cold and gloomy outside, you probably don’t want to get out of your sweats. This would be ideal if you were to stay at home all day, however, as you do have to leave your house at some point, say to go to work or get food or basically anything else there is to do, you will definitely need to look good.

Let’s take going to work as an example, when you’re going to work, no matter what the weather is and how cold or hot it is, it’s still important to look good and keep looking well put together. Just because it’s winter, cold and snowing you can’t just show up to work in odd clothes. Maintaining your style in unfriendly weather can seriously be a difficult thing for many of us; the good news is that there are ways around this. That is, there are ways that you can still stay comfortable and look fabulous at the same time. Here are some ideas on how you can have both comfort and style and remain happy through the most unfriendly weather types there are:

Choose Comfortable Materials

This is the most important thing you can do to make sure you stay comfortable in respective weather. It is not so much the outfit itself that has a major impact on how you feel, it is the material from which the material is made. For instance, if you were to wear a cotton sweater that is only a tiny layer thick to keep you warm, this wouldn’t be ideal. However, if you were to wear some wool clothes of the same design you would feel so much warmer. Even the tiniest dresses would still feel warmer when made in weather appropriate material.

This is probably where a lot of people go wrong; they aren’t fully aware of how to choose the correct material of clothing and then how to style it appropriately. Avoid being one of those people and choose the correct material for the type of weather you are given.

Choose Basics

Another excellent way of making sure you are stylish despite unfriendly weather is to style your basics. Always make sure to purchase basic clothing pieces that are appropriate for the different weather types. For instance, have a basic T-shirt for the hot summer days and have a basic solid coloured sweater for those colder days. If you try to complicate it with complex pieces of clothing with heavy designs and a lot of other things then it just becomes rather difficult to stay really and truly comfortable yet stylish.

There is a well-known fashion statement that is you want to be stylish you have to endure discomfort. This is alright if it is for one special night or one special event, however if this starts to become your life then things won’t last very long. Keep it simple and easy.
