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 :)

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
