Recently we have been getting so excited for the winter sweaters, the cowl neck tops, the warm scarves and warmth arriving in our stores. As the temperature drops, our cozy mindset sets in, but NOT for all! A lot of women have been telling us “I love that sweater, but I get SO HOT that I’d never be able to wear it” – and we get that! Maybe you are on your feet all day moving about, you are naturally warm all of the time, or dear Mother Nature has turned your temperature up this year. Whatever it is, we want to share some ways to still incorporate some of the fun styles, but with a bit less heat.
- Love the blanket scarf, but fear you’d be claustrophobic from having it layered around your neck? No worries, here is an easy fix! Grab your favorite scarf and use it as more of a shawl around your shoulders. For extra fun, add a belt and have it belted around your true waist. You can even do this with a thin long OR short sleeve top depending on your heat preference!
- Puffy vests can be great outdoors, but we also love them to complement our whole outfit indoors too. If you opt to wear the look indoors, don’t be afraid to put a short sleeved top on under the vest, or find one of those amazing light fabrics to toss under. No need to make it looked bundled up for a day indoors, show off those fun vest looks we are seeing this season!
- Turtlenecks are not for all, we know this, but there are so many cute options this season. If the tight turtleneck is too much for you around the neck, look into the great cowl neck styles that are all over the place. It’s sort of like the turtleneck’s fun cousin as it gives you the same style as a turtleneck, but with less form fitting qualities.
- Don’t be afraid to re-purpose fall or spring sweaters. Those are often a bit lighter, but nobody said a lighter sweater must be put away when winter arrives. Add a darker color cami or tank under them for a different look, or add a light (yes LIGHT) weight scarf to give it more of that winter look with less heavy qualities. With winter white and cream colors in abundance this season, you can rock that spring sweater all you want, we won’t tell anyone.
