If the weather is any indication, winter is upon us. I was in Vancouver last weekend and while it was sunny and not raining (yay!) it was freezing. With winter comes the holidays and that means it’s time to start thinking about the various Christmas parties, get togethers and events that will be coming up in the next few weeks.
I don’t know about you, but as the weather drops, all I want to do is stay under my duvet in good company. That comforting feeling of being under the blankets, cozied up is maybe the best feeling in the world. Unfortunately, we can’t all live this way.
Many consider black as a ‘when all else fails’ option – for me, black is a go-to, first thought style approach. You cannot go wrong with black, but you can improve how you pull an all-black look together by remembering one thing – depth.
Bright patterns and saturated hues used to be reserved for fun summertime ensembles, but this is no longer the case. Grey, black and navy are always going to be staple colours for fall, but it feels modern to add in a few colorful accessories, or (if you’re really feeling brave) even to go head to toe in brights.
As I get older, my shopping habits continue to evolve. I used to be all about volume – the more I could cram into my closet, the better. What I didn’t realize was that in focussing on volume rather than quality and design, my wardrobe had a looming expiration date.
