The july cold putting you down? Why wear one lovely piece when you can wear several?  Layering clothes is exactly that. It’s when you put one piece over another.  However, it must be done with caution.  You don’t want to end up looking like an eskimo and bulky or as if you’re on your way to visit to the antartica.
Not willing to go overboard? you can try simple pieces like the ones below

She makes this trend look simple. The combination of her sheer pleated skirt and oversized jumper could look boring, but with the addition of a printed scarf adds color, and lets the fluidity of the skirt become the feature piece in her outfit.
Keep it stylish while cold......
 
 
Hello fashion rangers, have you heard of the white on white trend, well its back for spring 2012 and am so excited. Lately i went thrifting and i did not realise it till later that almost everything i got was white in color. When that happens i know that its currently on trend  and i got to look into it. Well white on white is a really elegant and sophisticated look to pull and it screams classy.
TIPS ON HOW TO WEAR WHITE

Do mix up different tones of white for a sophisticated look.

Don’t pair an all white outfit with white shoes and handbag. White looks best paired with neutrals like wood, nude or metallic shades.

Do pair white with accessories that have a bright pop of color like cobalt blue, red, yellow etc.

Don’t wear white pants that you can see through or that reveal pocket lining thats a definite fashion faux par.

Don’t wear white pants that are too tight because they will show every lump and bump.

Do wear white with the right undergarments. Wear skin tone underwear and a skin tone bra, not white, which will show through.....unless you want to be in the fashion police radar

Don’t ever wear white stockings with a white dress. That screams too much and overboard and remember we are trying to go for elegance

White doesn’t have to be boring if you know how to accessorize. Add a few pieces with metal, sequins, beading and rhinestones to sparkle and shine. Gold accent on winter white looks rich and warm.

Accessories to make white sparkle:

  • White or gold sequined hairband.
  • Shiny gold belt
  • Stacks of gold bangles
  • Layers of gold chains. Well now am sure am a sucker for gold on white it does not take the attention off the outfit but complements it really well. I cant wait to try it on.....i will sure keep you posted and the pictures on my closet page.

Revamp your wardrobe with a pop of color in this cold. Who said you have to look dull just like the weather. Color block your outfit for a more daring yet fashionable look.
