This time of year it is hard not to completely fall for all of the wonderful fall and winter fashions. How could you not? Magazines and stores are gearing up for the buzz of the holidays and all the shopping that follows along. The fashion forward are itching to break out their latest purchases and show off their favorite winter trends.
The style forecast shows shades of rich Bordeaux, enticing enough to make you relax with a glass of red wine and sip away until dawn. Coloring the pages of your favorite fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and InStyle, shades of deep scarlet are gracing everything from eyelids to accessories. Impress your family and friends with gifts inspired from the pages of these glossy magazines. In these hard economic times, sometimes we forget to do something special for ourselves. Go ahead and add a touch of scarlet to your wardrobe. You deserve to wear something that makes you feel ravishing; it is not about extravagance, it’s about simply doing the best with what you have.
If you’re not comfortable dressing head to toe in such a provocative deep color, try a razzle-dazzle scarf in a tone that makes your heart race. It’s a great way to experiment with adding some color into your life. And by investing in a new beautiful scarf, you have not only invested in a new accessory, (think outside the box) you can let the scarf dress your table as a runner instead of hiding it away in a drawer.
What’s cozy, warm, and a very trendy statement piece? Fur. Adorning everything from handbags to coats, short fox and bold dyed furs in every color of the rainbow are this season’s luxury must-have.
And there is always faux fur. Thanks to Rachel Zoe, some seriously amazing faux fur vests have hit the runway as well as the streets. Even a pair of fur earmuffs or fur-lined boots will bring a blast of “wow” and make you feel fabulous.
I want to know what you’re most excited about wearing this winter season! Is it a new accessory, a classic sweater, new snow boots? Share your thoughts with me!
