Winter is here, just in time to induce a substantial desire to stock up on a whole new set of must-haves for your wardrobe. With the bold scent of hot chocolate in the air, you need the right outfit for those cozy nights of entertainment with warm beautiful friends, while discovering winter recipes and indulging in gastronomical adventures.
I have a ton of whimsical lightweight bohemian dresses in my closet. As elegantly dressy as they are during those sunny months (especially when paired with pretty pumps or sandals), they transform into “boho chic” in the winter when paired with heavy tights of unlikely and sometimes mismatched colors of emerald green, red, dark blue, or black. I am a big fan of boots that cover up my cozy hand knitted oversized wool socks, I wear them throughout all of winter. And as for knitted sweaters, I like to wear a fine skimpy cardigan, or a thick knitted sweater 2 sizes too large, to emphasize the delicate uneven hemlines of the tulle and chiffon dresses. As far as outwear goes, I always love to throw on a fancy dressy statement jacket over layers of wool, tulle and chiffon. To me winter is all about keeping warm and looking festive, so I always have an extra layer under my pretty chiffon dress, a nice turtleneck or a fine nylon camisole, and of course a nice colorful warm shawl.
