How to dress feminine in Winter ( even when you're going hiking)? 7 ways to look more feminine in Winter/ Outfit proposal of the day

How to dress feminine and  appear dressed up even in Winter? Today I will be sharing a few of my personal tricks. As soon as the temperatures drop we are all tempted to wrap ourselves in a blanket and leave the house that way, but that is not very practical. Unless you can actually belt that blanket you have decided to wear, and make it somehow look nice, in that case kudos to you and do share how you do it. Generally speaking, dressing can get tricky once it gets cold but it does not mean we cannot be both stylish and warm. 

1. Don't forget about layering.
I know it is pretty obvious but still. You need to stay warm. The best way to do that is layering. In addition, layering gives us more options. Creating a feminine outfit is easier once you master the layering. For example, when you want to wear a pair of warm leggings, consider wearing a nice elegant skirt or a dress over them. Wearing a dress or a skirt over leggings or even pants is a great way to fight the cold.

2. Pay attention to the accessories.
Anything from a nice scarf, leather gloves to a pretty necklace can take your outfit to a new level. Write down all the feminine accessories you can think of. Check out what you have in your closet. Remember that gorgeous pair of earrings you totally forgot about and finally wear them. You do not have to wait for the Spring to wear your favourite necklaces. Wear your necklaces over turtlenecks and scarves. 

3. Wear fitted items.

Fitted items are by definition feminine. They make any outfit appear more dressed up and feminine. If you cannot invest in tailored and fitted items right now, consider belting your clothes. A nice belt can create an illusion of a fitted cut. 


4. Skirts and dresses are an obvious choice.

Well, they are. Skirts and dresses are clothing items that are by definition feminine. Today dresses and skirts come in all shapes and forms, so finding a cut that suits you should not be a problem. The same goes for finding a style. From rock chic to classical elegance, there is a dress for every style.

5. Don't forget about 'formal' clothing items and luxurious fabrics. 

By formal clothing items I mean anything you would wear for formal meetings, special occasions or office. Most of us have shirts, blouses, dresses, blazers that fall into the dressed up category. Sometimes we do not wear them as often as we could. There is no reason why we should wait to be invited to a wedding so we could wear our best blazer. Moreover, when we think about formal clothing, there is often a connotations of a special type of fabric. Cotton, suede and denim are considered casual materials, while silk for example is considered a more luxurious material. Inspect your closet. Find those luxurious fabrics and think of a way to wear them.

6. Suit up. 


Wearing a classical suit is always a good idea. Whether it is a pants plus blazer or skirt plus blazer, a nice suit adds elegance into every look. If you want to look extra feminine when you are wearing a suit, do not forget to wear dressed up shoes, it does not matter whether it is a pair of heels or a pair of fancy flats, what matters is they match the suit and make the outfit more polished

7. Vintage

Yes, vintage especially vintage clothing from the fifties and earlier. Be it second hand, inherited, bought or whatever, a vintage clothing item can add femininity in our closet. There are many vintage shops out there, but if you are not in the mood for shopping, you can always ask your mothers and grandmothers, family members and friends and see if they have some item they would like to get rid off.

How to dress feminine in Winter ( even when you're going hiking)? 7 ways to look more feminine in Winter/ Outfit proposal of the day



So, you might have noticed that I love hiking. Nothing like going for a little stroll to clear our head after a long week behind the desk and in front of a screen. Honestly, usually I don't dress any differently when I go hiking. I will wear what I usually do, I will just pay attention to footwear. Today I have talked about creating a feminine outfit. I think we can get away with comfy boots and leg warmers (I had these faux fur leg warmers for ages) as long as we keep the rest of our outfit more dressed up. As you can see, here I wore a skirt, a blazer, a scarf, a top, a pair of leggings, leg warmers and a pair of boots. Naturally, I also wore a coat. This time a short black coat. This was a very comfy outfit and I think it looked pretty cute.

I had a bit of natural ombre going on here and now that I see it, it looks kind of cute. It makes me regret I dyed my hair. Did I told you about my hair dying experience? I purchased a bronze hair dye but as you already had the chance of seeing in my previous posts, it didn't stick. I plan to dye my hair darker next month. The last thing I would add on this whole subject of dressing more feminine is to pay special attention to your hair. A nice haircut or hairstyle adds a lot to any outfit. Natural hairstyles can be very attractive as well. No need to spend hours in the bathroom every day. Some people like to wear their hair natural. In my case, that looks like this. My hair is really so straight that using a hair iron is totally unnecessary. Short hair can be just as feminine as long hair. It is all about what makes you feel pretty. Still, healthy hair always looks good so take care of your hair.  That would be all for today. If you have any tips for dressing more feminine during the Winter, do share.

  2. Those are great tips and your outfit is beautiful - I like your layering, you always do it so well, and the print mixing with teh scarf and the stripes. I love wearing scarves in winter, although I'm not the best at layering - we don't really get a chance to practice as it doesn't get really cold here, maybe for a few days over winter, haha!


    Hope you are having a nice weekend. The heatwave continues here unfortunately, so another quiet and aircon filled weekend for us!

  3. Great tips here, you look great and off to hike how cool is that. I remember when I first moved to Seattle from NY, I had only been there a week and my roommates who were professional hikers suggested we go on a hike, which I had never done before. I came out wearing metallic red platform sneakers. Well they fell over laughing!

  5. These are fantastic tips! When it's super cold, it can be really easy to abandon style in favor of dressing warm but this is a good reminder that it is possible to dress presentably and not be cold :)

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
