Winter: The Special Blend

The season of winter approaches and you can either layer or pretend that the cooler climate doesn't affect you. But, when winter arrives there are many ways to layer and still maintain your sartorial style. For me, as you may know, it all comes down to accessories, aside from the obvious jewellery options.

Let’s face it, without silk undergarments you might just find yourself freezing your little stylish bones off, and why do that to yourself? 

Here’s a prime example—showcasing one of several ways that I layer and stay warm throughout the winter season. 

This was an outfit that I shot some time ago; however I've been saving it to share with you for such a time as this. It’s a blend of the old and new, of course! A mere calming stirred (not shaken) blend of woollen meets silk and colour. I opted for my very own special blend, which needn’t too much of an introduction to most of you, being that I intensely adore scarves!

Style Interpretations:
The crimson textured tights paired nicely with my knit dress, which I bought years ago. And, adding bits of silk, in addition to my printed scarf seemed like a first-rate counterpart to the entire outfit. So, I digested post-autumn weather very smoothly. The outfit felt like I was wearing espresso, caramel, and cherries with a heavy cream topping (my dress) as a warm focal point.

Is there a special style mixture that you infuse into your pre-winter dressing? Perhaps, you’re like me, and have many blends that suit you.  

What are your favourite fashion elements to layer with?

  13. haha madison! that's a fun way of looking at it. i love the way you described the layers (as a foodie). the climate in which i live in we definitely have to do this. it goes from hot to cold within a day. you have to be able to take things off throughout the DAY. great way of describing it.

  17. Layering is definitely the best way to maintain a sense of style during winter as you said and your outfit here is a perfect example of that. Love the tights! I'm a big fan of long underwear as a base to build from. Happy Monday Madison!

  18. Glam up your Lifestyle16 December, 2013

    Ich mag im Winter auch mehrere Schichten übereinander, so kann man bei Bedarf immer mal was abnehmen. Dein Outfit steht fit gut. Die Strumpfhose hat eine tolle Farbe und Muster.

    Deine Haare sehen heute besonders hübsch aus.

    Einen lieben Gruß, Cla

  19. Loving that wool jumper Madison! I've been painting the house in every spare moment so there hasn't been much time to wear stockings and I don't tend to wear tights unless it's very cold {which it's not here yet} but I love that look. Mostly I wear a lot of wool scarves and a cashmere sweater under my jacket/blazer. Hope you're off to a lovely Monday!

  26. Layering is absolutely key in winter months, and I love the way you've described your layered look - a picture is worth a thousand words, it's true, but it never hurts to add a wonderful description. For me, fall and winter layering always involves a scarf. And a coat. And, on cold days, a blazer under that, too! It's all about getting creative and finding new ways to look fabulous, which you certainly seem to be succeeding at :)

  31. Oh la la, I love that description of layering. Haha, I suppose clothing really is like a multi-layered bar of sugary deliciousness! I really love those tights and boots of yours, lovely lady. Your layering skills are quite impressive!

    Man, I really love wearing sweaters over dresses, and socks over tights. Those have gotta be my favorite combos!
