It's no secret that winter and its lack of sunshine are bad for our morale and makes us feel the winter blues. Well, I do not fall into the blues and here is my clothing advice for lively, positive wintertime!
Dare the patterns!
To break the codes of winter and cold colours, take the total opposite! Wear patterns. After all, who said that patterns mean off-limits in the colder months? So, from pants to jacket, blouses or even jumpsuits, try it! A pastel print, soft, romantic and perfectly seasonal, will be perfect for your family moments. White pants with a bold pattern print will modernise your outfit and help you step out of the usual too sad colours.
Wear a primary colour
Magenta (red), cyan (blue) and yellow are the three primary colours whilst using subtractive synthesis. With additive synthesis (superposition of rays of light), the three primary colours are red, green and blue. It doesn't matter. Remember that in winter, you have to dare these colours.
Red: red enhances an outfit. With a piece of clothing, but sometimes just a little touch, as with a line of lipstick.
Blue: light or dark blue, this colour suits your personality and mood. Play on its nuances.
Yellow: yellow is not just a summer colour. It pairs perfectly with black! Try a top or blouse in this colour.
Green: don't you have outfits with the dominant colour green? Then now is the time to give it a try. You will find a green that matches your skin tone.
To bring a little cheerfulness to the monotony of winter, sometimes just a small detail is enough. Think about the bows that your outfits can wear. On a halter top, a low-cut sweater, or to close a long-sleeved blouse, this little touch of originality is always appreciated.
Wear quirky accessories
Finally, one last tip to prevent winter from eating into your spirits: fight it with colourful accessories. Think in particular of an original handbag with flashy colours. Nothing better than a bag with patterns that evoke the sun, or warm colours that invite you to travel. The temperature will not go up, however, but morale will remain at the top!
