STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS- HOW TO BREAK THE WINTER FASHION RUT

We all are no strangers to the sartorial woes that winter brings with it, and if the winter is brutal, then jeans and layering in thick clunky coats and boots becomes your everyday uniform....BORING !! But, if you are a fashion maven, then you would have definitely figured out a way by now to dress up around extreme temperatures, without any compromise on STYLE ! Well, I am no exclusion to this and today I will be sharing some ways you can break the winter jeans rut and shake things up a bit. 

THINK PRINTS: well-well, talk to me about prints and I could write my own thesis on it, but for now: let's just keep it to the outfit. Prints are a great way to jazz things up a bit. Think printed sweaters, printed blouses, printed shoes, printed knit scarves or even a printed dress like this one, which is relatively thick and warm.

ADD TEXTURES:  when I say texture, I mean fur, leather, quilt, wool, anything that makes your outerwear anything but boring is welcomed. Personally, I like a leather bomber jacket that is edge and  shapely too.

PLAY WITH COLORS: need I say that " nothing breaks a fashion rut better than COLORS." Consider colored accessories, shoes, boots, handbags, and tights to everyone's surprise. Colored tights effortlessly add that punch of color to any winter gray outfit. I am not wearing tights in my look, coz it had warmed up that day and I could bare my gams, but otherwise I would have definitely added a pair of blue tights and swapped my pink heels for black pumps.

THINK OUT OF THE BOX: everyone wears a winter hat or a cap, but seldom do people try new hat trends. For instance berets are a huge trend this winter and I am embracing it to the max. Initially I was reluctant to even trying this trend, but after spotting it on my favorite DC babes, I caved in and now 'I am obsessed.' I wore one in my yesterday's post HERE, and I am wearing one again today.  Furry ear muffs are also a great way to shake things up a bit. When in the market for an ear muff, stray away from black and gray and try out a mint or even a blush one. It won't hurt !!


These are some of the ways I resort to, to switch up my winter fashion game, what are your tricks and tips ??
