5 Lazy Winter Looks That Are Still Stylish
The number one priority in the winter is to feel warm, comfortable and cozy at all times. If we had it our way, we would wear loungewear all day, every day because the lack of sunlight and cold weather makes us feel too lazy to plan an outfit. Luckily, it is easy to still look cute and stylish while you are wearing those cozy and warm clothes this winter. If you are going on a date, or you simply want to look cute in public while still being comfortable sans effort, we have got your back.
For every day that is clearly sweater weather, there is a soft and stylish sweater you can throw on with a pretty scarf and a glittering manicure to complete the look. Anytime all you want to wear is sweats, there are fashionable high-waisted sweatpants that have cute pockets and look just as chic as they are cozy. Being lazy and warm doesn’t mean you can’t also look super cute this winter. Here are five tips for lazy, cozy and cute winter looks:
1. Have fun with a trendy manicure
Because of the winter blues, you may be too lazy to coordinate an outfit. You may be wearing a basic sweatshirt with high-waisted sweatpants, but your sparkly, snowflake-design manicure will up the “cute” factor in your look this winter. No matter how casual your outfit is, a manicure that stands out will make you look fashionable. You can get your nails painted in a holiday-theme with silver and gold, or use sparkly gel polish that glitters so beautifully against your plain black or neutral-colored sweater.
2. Use plain colors to accentuate other features
It becomes easier and easier to get dressed in the winter if your closet is stocked with cozy shirts and sweatshirts that are plain colors. They are easy to mix and match, and wearing a plain color has other benefits as well. A blank, plain colored sweatshirt or hoodie will accentuate your eyes, lips and your beautiful hair much more than a distracting patterned shirt will. Anvil, for example, is a high-quality brand of shirts that come in plain colors with logos, designs or decorations. Anvil has been around for over 100 years. They manufacture their apparel in an environmentally-friendly and ethical way. This brand began using organic cotton before many other clothing companies did. Anvil shirts are offered in many styles and countless colors, at very low prices. For example, they have crewneck fleece-lined sweaters, long-sleeved sweatshirts and baseball-style 1/4 length shirts in a variety of colors. Choose the color that brings out your eyes the best or a trendy color such as mustard yellow, or choose a plain black shirt so that your sparkly winter manicure and your beautiful deep shade of winter lipstick stands out.
3. Add a stylish scarf
If your cozy outfit consists of plain, neutral colors, there is no easier way to add style than with a scarf. How easy is it to wrap a cute scarf around your neck as you run out the door? It is the perfect accessory to complete a cozy, warm and fashionable winter outfit. Since scarves are generally quite inexpensive, you can buy several cozy scarves that will give you variety depending on the color of the outfit you are wearing. With a black sweatshirt and leggings, you can get away with a leopard print scarf or a winter floral scarf. If you are wearing mustard yellow, you can wear a navy blue and white polka-dot scarf. If you are wearing dark blue or dark grey, a beautiful deep teal scarf would pair nicely.
4. Wear a cute beanie
When you wear a cute beanie, toque or hat you will stay warm and cozy this winter while looking stylish – as long as you choose a stylish hat. If your outfit is mostly neutral or black, you can add a pop of color with a colored beanie. Or, if you have already accomplished that pop of color with your handbag or your scarf, a simple black, grey or white beanie will look fantastic. A beanie is the perfect example of an accessory that, even if your whole outfit is plain and boring, in a trendy color it will make you look cute and chic this winter.
5. A fitted and chic coat
You will always complete your look with your coat, and that is why a stylish winter coat is an asset. If you are going to quickly throw on a coat, it might as well be a cute one. An incredibly easy way to be comfortable and cute this winter is to throw on a coat that accentuates your waist and looks flattering and fashionable.
