Yes, we’re all a little tired of the cold weather, and unfortunately, there are still a few more weeks to go. And if you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking about the options you have for dressing like your own self while the temperature ball drops.
The good news is that you don’t have to give up your favorite boho pieces to be protected for winter, but you do have to learn some tricks. The key to achieving this goal is just one word: layers. I’m sure you’ve heard a lot about it, but dressing in layers will not only allow you to extend the life of your ‘summer’ clothes, but it will also give you the chance to put on more or fewer clothes depending on the place you go. Because one thing is to be completely covered when you’re walking on the street, and one totally different to be at your office where the heat is at full capacity.
The first thing you need to know is that you’re going to wear a few more layers underneath that what you’re willing to admit.
Depending on the weather, the suggested items are leggings and t-shirt, preferably thermal if it’s too cold. Socks are also important, choose thick ones so you don’t have to go for two pairs and that way you’ll be able to wear pretty much all your boots no matter what they’re made for.
For your main piece (or layer), meaning the one people are going to see when you take your jacket off, you can take advantage of your favorite tunic with a cute pair of leggings (or the second pair, because you’ll be wearing others underneath) and finish the look with your favorite boots. Another cute option is to use your long sleeve maxi-dress for a boho look with high boots. Go for something like our beloved Bali or Cara dresses, and get creative with the color palette for different accessories: go for belts, necklaces, and nothing would look better with this than a scarf.
After you have the idea of the full assembly, the most important thing to consider for a full-winter look is the jacket. The positive side is that the most bohemian piece of them all, the oversized cardigan, is trendier than ever and you can find it so many options! Make sure the coat you pick is made of a thick heavy material so it keeps you cozy all the time without much further work. A neutral tone like beige or gray would work for most of your looks, and if you’re looking for something a little more out there, don’t be afraid to explore print. Also, remember that most of these cardigans are already taught to look a little big on you, so don’t worry about picking up a size up, it will probably be too much.
Now your outfit is almost complete. But the bad thing about the cold is that there are some things you just can’t leave at home because you will freeze. Of course, we’re talking about hats and glove. For the first, you have the normal option of going for a beanie and call it a day, although you can make it boho by choosing a knit hat that looks a bit oversized as well. Or, as we said in our previous post, you can be the most stylish girl in winter and go for a big hat that would definitely tell the world you don’t play by boring rules.
