Winter is here and, I know, we are still in the Christmas mood, with all the lights, delicious food, coziness, being at home and living a beautiful life. But, well, January brings everything back: our work, kids at school, all the running and life as always. My dear, are you ready? Sincerely, I am not, but with the help of fashion and some very good, feminine trends, I am back! Let me give you a few tips about what to wear right now and how to find a good balance between the elegant woman and the working mom.
As on-trend as it is luxurious, velvet is the perfect fabric for elevating your daywear or leading your party outfit. Think decadent details and seasonal palettes of gold, green and purple this winter. Please, keep in your mind that velvet is not just for special occasions; for example a velvet blazer is something you can wear all day long, also with a good pair of jeans and sneakers.
I adore it! It has a heritage charm and it makes you feel so elegant. My best buy is a long, tartan coat, one in blue and the other in dark brown, it makes me feel special and classy and when I wear it, I always meet people that ask me about the coat. It is a statement detail, always classy; for example the plaid shirt is perennially stylish. Team yours with skinny leather trousers and studded boots for a refined take on this season’s punk trend.
Try with high heels
I know you are lazy and so am I. I really prefer sneakers or ballerinas, because I have to run after my little girl, but, well, high heels are another planet. Sometimes I really have to push myself and convince me, that “This is a good day to wear high heels” and then I never regret my decision. The most difficult part is to choose them early in the morning, when you are still sleepy and not sure about what you want. But, well, try them! They are worthwhile.
Buy some new jeans
Which is easy to say and hard to do or, better, to find. The right pair of jeans is something like the right shade of red lipstick: almost impossibile to find. But if you have time, patience and are lucky enough, you will find the right jeans for you, which has to be the best of also on the back, when you sit, stand, are wearing sneakers or heels. My tip: go for a darker shade and crop model, not skinny.
Opt for a blazer
A good blazer is everything and the black one is, of course, I must have. Anyway try also with other shades and combination; I love the velvet one as well as the tartan blazer, but often I opt also for a blush one, beige or deep blue, it depends. I love blazers, because they are amazing with pants and jeans, you have just to pay attention at the length: it has to be enough long,, never too short.
Stay calm and cool (and don’t forget to read)
Hey, it’s January, so don’t rush too much, it’s not necessary. Stay cool and calm with a good book, read something about the art of being grateful, try to meditate five minutes a day, to take time for you gym class or do something that can really relax you. Put on the good mood and forget about the world, everything will be fine and you are never alone.
Buy something just for your soul – a sexy perfume is always a good option
I know, we have a lack of money, as December is always full of giving and spending, but try to do something just for your soul. I always think that buying for example a new, good perfume, is something smart, because you usually don’t spend a lot of money and get something cute and nice. Or you can offer yourself a neck massage, o good vanilla bath (home made is always the best), or maybe opt for that movie at the cinema and finally find some time to go.
