Winter Clothes

| Author: | Posted in Fashion

This the season to be shopping for winter clothes, and now that the weather’s finally starting to cool down a bit, it is time to pull our turtlenecks, coats, gloves and mittens out of the wardrobe. However, you might find that the winter clothes you wore last season, which are exactly that,last season and outdated, out of style and you might consider getting a new wardrobe altogether. Of course, you have to consider your budget and the practicality of it all. Why not splurge, winter season is shopping season, but the occasions in which you wear what you shop for have a lot of bearing on whether you’ll buy them in the first place. For example, puffy jackets and huge goggles aren’t the most flattering look, but when you’re out skiing, braving the cold, dodging other skiers and trying not to fall, how you look is the last thing on your mind (at least in terms of fashion nobody wants to fall flat right in front of a crowd of onlookers, and absolutely nobody wants to be the one that falls right when getting off the ski lift, prompting ski lift operations to cease altogether for a minute during which people are left suspended in the air, waiting impatiently for the novice skier to get back up on their feet and out of the way).

Anyway, during winter you’re usually bundled up in so many layers that no one has any clue what you’re wearing underneath, and for all they know you might be wearing that embarrassing sweater your grandmother knitted that youíd never wear in public if people could see it. And if it’s cold enough, people might start to envy your unflattering winter clothes even if they make you look like a shapeless blob, in the way that people gravitate to those huge tacky beach umbrellas when it’s pouring outside.

On the other hand, if you’re trying to prevent yourself from freezing to death, what’s the harm in looking good while doing it? Winter clothes don’t necessarily have to be ugly to be useful there’s a balance in the tradeoff between fashion and function. While some might see the extra layers having frumpiness potential, others might see it as even more of an opportunity to display impeccable fashion sense. In any case, if you don’t care much for trends or if you’re consistently victimized by the fashion Nazi for being hopelessly unstylish, this time of year is your chance to get away with it.
