Surviving The Winter In Style: Essential Fashion And Beauty Tips

Winter is almost here, and while this heralds the start of the holiday season, it also brings cold weather. At this time of the year, the conditions can take their toll, but you don’t have to hide away and hibernate. Here are some fabulous fashion and beauty tips to help you survive the chill in style.
Your winter capsule wardrobe
In winter, the aim of the game is to be comfortable and warm as well as looking great. If it’s cold outside, you’ll need to layer up, but this doesn’t mean that your sense of style has to go out of the window. There are lots of different ways you can beat the chill and still look stylish. Invest in a couple of coats, one for more formal events and one for long walks and cheering on the sideline at football games, and make sure you’ve got footwear that will keep your toes warm and dry. Leather ankle boots are great because they go with both smart and casual outfits and trainers and fur-lined boots are ideal for outdoor activities.

While jeans and casual trousers are brilliant for winter, you don’t have to banish all your dresses to the back of the closet just because the temperature has dropped. You can use base layers, add tights and throw on a jacket or a cardigan to winter-proof your favorite styles from the summer. If you’re looking for dress outfit ideas, it’s a good idea to take a look at some fashion magazines and browse options online. You can style almost any dress for the conditions. Take a simple jersey maxi as an example. In the summer, you’d just add sandals, but to make this is a viable winter outfit, you can add tights, sneakers, an oversized woolen cardigan, a hat and a scarf.

Winter beauty rules
When it’s cold outside, it’s particularly important to protect your skin. If your skin is dry and your summer glow has long gone, make sure you moisturize frequently. It’s beneficial to swap light lotions for heavier creams and serums when temperatures tumble. Always remember to cleanse before you go to bed and exfoliate once a week.

If you’re struggling to adapt your look for winter, embrace some cold weather makeup trends. At this time of year, you can be bolder with color and opt for a slightly more dramatic look. Think a bright red lip, a smoky eye and fuller foundation coverage. Make sure you moisturize before you apply your base, as this will prevent dry spots and caking. You can use primer to create a smooth surface and setting spray to keep your makeup intact when it’s blowing a gale outside. Take care to get your foundation shade right. In the winter, most of us tend to be a little paler than in the summer, so you may need a lighter shade.

If you’re keen to look and feel great this winter, take these fashion and beauty tips on board. Adapt your wardrobe to ensure that you’re warm and cosy, as well as chic and stylish and take good care of your skin. Experiment with makeup trends and have fun trying new looks.


  1. I like that jacket and lip color. I have a similar jacket and I'm always look for a nice red!

  2. No matter the season, it's so much fun to stay stylish. These are great ideas!

  3. Living in FL, we don't really have Winter clothes, but I love all of your ideas!

  4. That jacket is beautiful! I tried one on similar to that one this year and I totally wish I would have bought it!

  5. I need to spend some time exploring new looks and experimenting. I just don't know what I like yet.

  6. Winter does need some adjustments. In terms of fashion for us who live in warmer climes winter is the time to take out and show off our winter wear jackets, cardigans and sweaters. Also dry skin is a challenge that needs to be tackled.

  7. I love a good bright red, matte lip for winter! It gives off a bold statement without being too much because of the matte. Great tips!

  8. I live in Upstate NY, and we know all about cold weather! I love wearing cozy layers. You are brave for wearing those white pants! I find that white clothes somehow always get brushed against the car and end up with salty/dirt stains. I am big on cozy sweaters and scarves :)

  9. I love the winter outfit you have on. It looks so great on you too. That is exactly something I'd wear.

  10. I love your outfit! I have a couple different winter jackets - my heavy one for the yard work, and then my cute warmer ones for going out. I still have yet to find the perfect hat.

  11. What an amazing outfit, It looks so good on you! I am going to have to get some new winter attire soon.

  12. I haven't been protecting my skin as I should be. I need to work harder on that and try to find cute clothes. I always feel like I wear drab colors.
