Cool winter, cooler outfits – a guest contribution

I am pleased to share the first guest post on my blog with you today. I discovered Les Belle Fashion on Instagram. It’s an unusually fresh and lively style on this blog. At regular intervals, Les Belle offers fashion outfits for the day, the night or the weekend. I always have a smile on my face when I read these write-ups.
The blogger & copywriter – Nuel Iyere – has written this article explicitly for you.

=======>>> The days are getting shorter and the temperatures cooler, which means only one thing: winter is already here. During this time of the year, people keep fussing about how to look smashing hot in spite of the cold weather and this is where I would like to help prepare you for the snowy, chilly months ahead. Here’s everything you need to keep the cold out without sacrificing your fashion sense. And the interesting thing about these wardrobe essentials is that they are available for cheap prices.
i-Parka2The Parka – Since the Parka was first worn by the native Inuit of the Arctic regions of Northern Russia and Alaska to protect themselves from the extremely cold Arctic climate, it has never lost its topicality, forcing its way to become a staple winter outfit. If there’s only one winter item you will really need, then it’s a parka – just one that reaches to the mid-thigh, preferably with features that makes it versatile and is waterproof, not water-repellent – so it can be worn in the rain, snow and any weather. It’s good to opt for waterproof rather than water-repellent finishing so you can wear the coat in the snow or in the rain. Also choose one that’s a buttoned-down furry coat. When buying, make sure it’s a good synthetic coat. You might not necessarily want to wear animal skins as part of your clothing.

Waterproof Snow boots – If you’d love to go hiking in the snow, spend a few bucks on waterproof snowboots. Decide on a material designed to keep out the wet and cold. Buy a warm lined fur version. I recommend a modern synthetic variant. And opt for an Ultra-Protector, which additionally provides a waterproof protection and extra warmth.

Sweater – The sweater and cardigan have been an integral part of our wardrobe since spring, and we can not stress enough how important it is for the winter months. We recommend choosing at least two cozy vests with colors that will fit most things in your wardrobe. The choice between black, white, brown / beige, blue or mixed colors in a striped fashion style is very stylish. Choose a cashmere sweater with a round neck and a second that you particularly like. I prefer the sweaters with a v-neck. Interestingly, these can be worn all year round.
i-Jacket
Warm tights & leggings – For women, the purchase of tight pants is definitely a good choice. Nothing reveals your curves more than this. Despite trying to cover up because of the cold, you’ll also want something revealing – so these are a must. They go with all types of tops and shoes. And if you’re wearing your thigh high boots, theyll fit better than your jeans.

Hats & Beanies – Ever since the Middle Ages, when hats were worn to give the wearer social status, the usage of hats speaks only one language: classy. If you don one, you belong to a class of its own. All the more interesting is that this accessory can be worn all year round and you’ll still look fashionable. It does not discriminate against the seasons. Even if you’re not a hat person, you might need a beanie for those extra-chilly days. On these days, it makes a big difference to cover your head with an extra layer under the hood. If you think you do not have enough money to buy this item, it is good to know that it is very cheap and already available for only $10.
