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 :)

TIPS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE EASTER CELEBRATION

Happy Easter Monday everyone! Today I'll talk about how to have more sustainable Easter week celebration. I'll share some of my tips as well as my 'green' Easter day traditions. Before I get into sharing those tips, let me just say that traditional Easter customs are more likely to be environmentally conscious. So, tradition is a great way to look for inspiration. Ask your elders, relatives and friends about their Easter traditions, they can give you useful tips, advice and inspiration. Naturally, internet is also a great resource for environmentally friendly Easter. There are a lot of creative people out there that are constantly coming up with sustainable decor and recipes, so why not tap into that? Feel free to share your Easter traditions as well. A great thing about collecting green tips is that most of them can be applied to any festivity!
My Easter day 'green' ideas include: using natural egg dyes, using recycled Easter decor, not being wasteful with fo…

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.

HOW TO STYLE A NAVY SUIT FOR SPRING? OUTFIT PROPOSAL & TIPS

EN In my last post, I've wrote about sustainable ways to celebrate Easter and today I'll show you what I wore for Easter. Typically I like to wear dresses for Easter day, but this year I decided to suit up. You have already seen a part of my Easter outfit in my last post, mainly the white linen folklore shirt I bought a few years ago (from a nice Croatian lady who specializes in making traditional and folklore garments). I believe you know that I have a thing for traditional and folklore clothing. As for the rest of my Easter styling, I shopped my closet to pick up this navy blazer. I paired it with navy flares I originally bought to wear to work. Good thing that my personal style isn't a casual one, and I actually enjoy wearing business/ formal wear I buy for work. If you look closely, you'll see that the blazer and the pants are not the same shade of navy blue, but slightly different. This blazer isn't actually a part of a suit, but often I like to create my own…
