When I was really young, in highschool to be more precise, like many teenagers, I was insecure and always wanted to look good. Unfortunately, the heavy winter clothes were not following the “sexy” criteria, so almost always I was underdressed and cold. Today I wouldn’t do that if my life would depend on that. My comfort and health always come first.
I live in a country, where we (still) have 4 seasons. Nowadays we don’t get that much snow during the winter, but we do get the cold air waves from the north of the continent. Starting from November the weather is changing to a more rainy and cold-ish type, so adjusting the outfits is a must. Here are a couple of my favorite outfits to wear when the weather is not the best.
1. Rubber boots, jeans and a vest
When the temperature is above 10oC and when the mud is all around me, I like to go back to my childhood hobby of horse riding and try an outfit inspired from there. Turns out, the rubber boots are not that bad and can be even stylish.
2. Equestrian boots, wool sweater and a leather jacket
Given the fact that I live in an area where it rains a lot, yet the temperatures are not that low, I like to balance my outfits with a lighter jacked, in this case a black (faux) leather one and a pair of equestrian boots. Both items are timeless for me and can be worn season after season. Usually I like to add a wool, cashmere or alpaca (blend) sweater to make sure it keeps me warm enough.
3. UGG boots with a furry coat
This can be for cooler dry days when you want to be able to walk and stay outdoor for hours. It is during these days that I default to my favorite casual looks, my trusted UGG boots with a soft fluffy coat. To complete the look, I go for skinny jeans and a basic turtleneck top.
4. Cargo boots, (faux) leather pants and a teddy coat
For all my rocker ladies, I have one of my favorite outfits, that combines the leather pants with the cargo boots. From here, I can go for the more feminine look with a coat / trench or for the bicker style with a leather jacket. Depending on who I want to scare that day. I went for a teddy coat that is so soft and warm.
5. Leopard boots and white jeans
For those days when I want to dress up a little bit, I go for a combination of creamy white, brown and leopard. A print that can be both trash and classic, depending on how you wear it. Personally I love to add the print as the “it” piece and complement the look with basics, solid colors. This year I went for a pair of sock boots, alpaca sweater and white jeans.
