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 :)

WHAT IS AN IDEAL MAXI DRESS FOR A SUMMER VACATION?

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…

STYLING A YELLOW JUMPSUIT FOR SUMMER ( BAY TORAC, ISLAND HVAR)

How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…

A PRINTED DRESS FOR CATCHING A FERRY IN SUCURAJ, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)

What to wear when you're travelling? In summer, I often opt for print dresses because they are fun and seem to go well with anything. I packed quite a few printed dresses for my visit to island Hvar (Croatia). As long as the dresses are comfortable, they are my 'go to' travel outfit. This mixed print dress is one of my favourite travel summer dresses. You have seen me wear it a lot on this blog, especially for hiking and sightseeing (and you know I believe in shopping one's closet). It's a great day to night dress as well, quite easy to dress up and down. My outfit proposal of the day is more casual in tone so you could said that I dressed the dress down. The shoes I choose to go along with this dress are printed sandals from Art brand. I bought them when I was in Split last spring and they're super comfortable (not sponsored).  I also wore a backpack because they are more practical for travelling. I have quite a pragmatic mind when it comes to fashion, and I …
