Don't forget your hair and makeup

If your clothes are getting a winter makeover, then why should we forget about the hair and makeup? To complement your clothes, curl your hair instead of going with the beach waves. And as for the makeup, how does dark-colored lipstick or eyeshadow sound to you?
When it comes to putting a stylish outfit together, most of us are under the impression that purchasing new clothes is an easier option. That may be true for some women who can afford to spend hundreds of dollars on new outfits and matching accessories each time they want a makeover of sorts.
However, that isn't the case with the rest of the lot. We believe that any woman can be fashionable yet frugal, and find the best outfits from her own closet to stay stylish every season.
Which means, you can transform your favorite summer dress, shorts, or even a skirt into a cold weather-appropriate outfit with a few minor adjustments (or shall we say, additions?). As you read further, you will find out how easy it all can be.

5 Brilliant Outfit Ideas

First things first, understand the power of adding layers strategically. Too little, and you might not be able to walk along the snowy sidewalks. On the other hand, too many layers will take away the charm of the entire outfit.
And secondly, put an outfit together keeping your comfort level in mind. After all, we can only give you suggestions; it is you who has to pull it off.

1. Floral Sundress

A mini floral sundress is a summer staple for majority of women. To include the dress to your winter collection, include pieces like a lightweight cardigan or jacket, wool scarf, ankle- or knee-length boots, and matching tights.
This is a chic ensemble for women who love comfort more than anything. Include accessories like chandelier earrings and a handbag to complement the outfit.

2. Jumpsuit

Whether you have a jumpsuit or a romper, you can turn it into a fall outfit by wearing a long-sleeved top underneath it. Apart from this, you can also add a blazer for a look that is instantly more dressy. On the other hand, if you're wearing a feminine-looking jumpsuit, try a leather jacket on for a nice mix.

3. Skater Skirt

A quintessential symbol of femininity, wearing a short skirt all year round is possible. There are a few different combinations you could try. For the top, you can choose from a loose sweater, long-sleeved top, leather jacket, and/or boyfriend coat.
Keep yourself warm with either an infinity scarf or a beanie. As for the bottom, you have the option of wearing stockings with either ankle- or knee-length boots, or calf boots.

4. Denim Shorts

Similar to putting an outfit together with a short skirt, wearing shorts during winter can be revolutionized. This ultimate low-key and comfortable piece works well when paired with a peacoat, chunky cardigan, or structured jacket. And instead of adding the same old tights, how about wearing a pair of patterned stockings?

5. Striped Dress

Is it a dress? Is it a skirt? No one will ever know; except for you, of course. Wear any summer dress and instantly turn it into a winter skirt with either a cardigan or sweatshirt on top. With the right accessories - necklace, scarf, shoes, you will have a warm, cozy, and smart outfit ready in no time.
