Winter is officially here, but that doesn’t mean you need to give up your style. The snow is a white canvas against which you can shine, with bold colours and shimmering accessories. Beautiful jewel tones pop against a snowy landscape, so why not pull out those brights this season?
Emerald, ruby and sapphire are perfect colours to make a statement. Choose one to be the focus of your outfit and frame it with neutral pant and jacket. For this look, I wore a deep cobalt blue dress with a faux fur black-blue winter coat and added some sparkle with a vintage crystal statement necklace and silver beaded purse.
Because the winter scene can go from gorgeous to drab as the fresh snow turns grey, adding brights to your wardrobe is a sure way to keep things on the fun side all season long. This fall, we saw topaz and amethyst as a strong colour trend, so if you have those hues in your closet make sure to pull them out!
My summer tan is looooonnnng gone, so I like to use a little bit of matte bronzer to add contour to my face with a soft highlighter and natural pink blush. To add some flare to my eyes, I used a cool brown shadow in my crease, a beige over my eyelid and gold eye glitter along my lash line. With a sweep of my favourite mascara and pink lip gloss, I am ready to go!
To get through the cold months ahead, without the blues, I’m making an effort to play up my clothing and create colourful looks that make me happy!
