Paisley dress x long sweater x military coat

Wearing color in in winters is cathartic. I wearing an indian paisley print dress here, which is custom made. I am trying on the dress with two different looks….one with a long brown sweater, and the other with a brown military style coat.

Comfort Dressing in Winter.

Standard

I am really fond of long sweaters in winter. As opposed to the coats and jackets, they are more comfortable…not restricting at all. Here I am wearing a long blue sweater, a navy blurred print dress, navy tights and navy boots. I have added a floral tropical scarf for added warmth and style.

Whatever I am wearing has a lot of stretch, and is super soft. I for one, need really soft and non tight clothes for comfort.

Medium Length Coats.

Standard

Winter is very much here.. I personally love wearing coats especially the medium length ones.. here I have picked up a few of my favorite looks from Pinterest. These looks are slimming and look graceful for women over 40. These are better than overcoats as they are difficult to wear and keep in your closet.

An all black outfit never fails. To add more drama to an all black outfit, what better than a colored pashmina stole.

I am wearing a black wool coat( from Hong Kong), black midi dress, black skinnies and a green blue pashmina stole.

This look is super chic and super warm.

It is also slimming and a good smart option for women my age….in their 40’S.

A black midi dress and black skinnies are a must for a winter capsule wardrobe.

Wearing checks in winter is a must for me. It adds nice variety to the daily monotony of wearing black.

Here I am wearing a grey black check collared dress with tights and a wool blend sweater in steel grey.

I have a black pashmina stole knotted around my neck. This is winter capsule wardrobe essential.

How to Wear Pants with Dresses.

Standard

Hi there! It is that time of the year again when the chill sets in. Now I am a great lover of a longish silhouette. But in winters you need to keep warm also. So how do I pair my dresses with pants?

http://www.collegefashion.com

This was a look for the youngsters.

For my age here it is…

Pairing dresses with tights is also a smart option. Try and go for shoes in the same color as the pant or you can wear nude shoes too.

The safest option is to wear black pants or leggings with black boots. This gives an impression of length.

Add a scarf for warmth.

The best part of this look is that it hides flab and is super comfy.

I hope to rock this look this winter.

ENJOY!
