Scarves are cute and you can tie them around the handles of your purse once you have arrived at your destination, creating a unique accent detail and ya don’t gotta put it thru coatcheck. So, win win. Scarves cover your neck and I like to cover the bottom half of my face to avoid the wind chills and these are the perfect accessory to take with you wherever you need to go. Useful and trendy.
Yes, black is classic, boy, do I know it. I love it, it’s in my top 5 fave colors. BUT I do think people tend to wear it too much! Yes, it is the winter season where dark colors are prided in, and they’re impossible to stain, but when you’re walking down the street and you see almost everyone wearing such dark tones it really doesn’t hurt to try add some vibrant pops of colors! Why not give black’s best friend, white, some of that winter spotlight? And adding some colorful pieces to your outfit could help you stand out as well as boost your spirits.
I actually really like wearing monotone outfits. Same color shoes, pants/skirt, shirt, the works.
The easiest colors I personally tend do this with is blue, white, and green. I don’t know why I happen to have every clothing piece in these colors in my closet, pure chance I suppose. But it looks cool. Blue is easier to start with, I’m sure most of us own a pair of blue jeans and a blue shirt. Shoes and accessories are usually a free for all but it definitely makes a statement if you can keep it as monotone as you can. Even if the tones don’t exactly match, i’ve noticed that it doesn’t really matter, its not like you’re trying to pair black shoes and a brown belt, more like, sky blue and baby blue; same color, different tone. And when I wear all white, I avoid drinking coffee because for me white is a magnet for spills and stains, but that’s just me.
[+] SECRET WEAPON: HAND WARMERS
These babies SAVED my life. My mom’s been grinding on that Amazon Prime game and she sent me hand warmers in bulk. Who knew they also have ones you can stick in your shoes to warm your toes?
I personally like HotHands. Through an exothermic reaction with the salt, carbon, powdered iron, water mixed in with a bunch of other chemicals and good things being exposed to air, it heats up and stays hot for up to 8 hours. And since your hands and feet are the most sensitive to the cold, these are the optimal places you wanna warm up to keep the rest of ya super warm. I’ve found that if my hands and feet are warm, I’m straight chilling. And not in the thermal sense, I mean I’m good and I don’t have to worry about persistently wearing 37 layers of clothing.
On a day or night out you just open a pack and put one in each of your coat pockets and/or in your shoes and you will be toasty for a solid 8 hours.
I’m also not a fan of gloves, I feel restricted and they’re annoying to have to repeatedly take off in order to carry things or reach into your wallet to “tip your barista” or whatever, so the hand warmers work great. I mean, with or without gloves we tend to keep our hands in our pockets anyways. Plus the hand warmers get really warm instead of just trying to trap in the heat of your hands with gloves. So gloves 0, hand warmers 3.
