By Janice Wee
After we have gotten used to the cheerful colors and sexy clothes of Spring and Summer and glamorous metallic clothes each Christmas, the fashion world decided to spring a surprise on us. Now, sexy is tarty. Ladylike is in vogue. Now even grandma looks more fashionable than the rest of us. What is a girl to do?
To start with, you can take it as an excuse rebuild your wardrobe for a chic new wardrobe for winter. That statement, honey, I really have nothing to wear is really true these days. You NEED to revamp your winter wardrobe.
The trend is towards a gothic romance. Like a fairy tale princess marrying Count Dracula. Gothic, somber colors in chiffons, lace and ribbons. A totally unexpected combination. The look is ladylike. Chic. Well heeled. Quality is everything. So go for quality. Buy only the best that you can afford.
Get ready for plenty of black, and dark somber colors. Get that romantic touch by mixing in a few pink clothes to lift things a little.
Choose your color scheme. Some possibilities. Black, plum and bright pink, or Navyblue, gray and pale pink. Use only the colors that make you look good. Take care to pick colors that go well with one another. If you want a striking new look, a combination of black, white and red would do the trick.
Once you have decided on your color scheme, stick to it. That way, everything in your wardrobe can be coordinated with everything else, giving you countless looks from those few pieces.
Feel free to choose items with frills, ribbons and other romantic details as these define this season's romantic fashion trends.
#1 A winter coat or a fur vest. Your coat or outerwear is the look you have whenever you go outdoors. The fur vest is the latest thing for this fall, winter season though. It really dresses up everything you wear it with. Even a pair of jeans looks formal when you wear fur vests.
#2 Lovely women's suits in any of your 3 chosen colors. Pick something you can wear for work, or for a power lunch. From the boardroom, to a dinner date with just a change of accessories.
#3 No doubt, loose clothes with layers of fabric are in. But seriously. Who wants clothes like the tulip skirt which adds more inches to your hips? No, you still need a pair of jeans. Don't bother with what the fashion magazines or designers dish out to us. Wear what looks good on you and not on a stick thin model. What is hot, has always been hot and always will be hot is a pair of tight jeans. A pair of fitting jeans that makes you look your sexiest. You wear the clothes that make you look good.
#4 Wool tights, pantyhose or stockings. Again for warmth and class. to keep your legs warm when you wear a skirt or a dress.
#5 A romantic blousec. The oversized man style shirt wouldn't do. You need something romantic. The blouse is the new season's must have.
#6 A beautiful dress. What could be more romantic than a dress. Dresses are hot this season, especially now that the romantic look is big. You need at least 1 blouse in your new wardrobe.
#7 A pair of boots that go with everything in your new wardrobe. They keep you warm they are versatile and give your outfit an edge.
#8 A pair of leather gloves to keep your hands warm and which look really sleek.
#9 A knit top to stretch your wardrobe further. The classic every autumn and winter is the turtle neck.
