This week, I planned to talk about gloves and scarves, and nothing more, but I guess we all know what happens to best-laid plans. They may not always fail, but behind them, there’s a human who gets caught up in ideas. You see, Monday was really cold and grey. I needed a pick-me-up, and figured you would, too. For that reason, I decided to write a quick tutorial on how to make a blanket coat! The tutorial will be free on the blog from now until eternity, and I do hope you’ll take advantage of it. Today, we’ll be returning to planned schedule, and looking at winter accessories.
Scarves are an easy way to bring warmth to any outfit. They go with everything, and work for any occasion. For the first look, I wanted to pair winter accessories with a corset. Choosing a corset was pretty easy: I have one with green details and lining that matches my green Lune. The outfit came together quickly and painlessly, but… well, we all know what corsets feel like when it’s been a while since you’ve been in one.
If we ignore what this outfit felt like, I have to say that I like the way it looks. I’ve always loved the combination of long hems and corsets, and my green Lune adds a unique element to the look. I wore it thrown over my chest to conceal bare shoulders. This way, it gives way to the lacing at the back, and won’t end up tangled up in hair. Though the scarf doesn’t necessarily look like it, it does bring a lot of warmth to this look.
Winter accessories are an easy way to change the mood of a dress. With the second look, I chose to use Jane’s Dress. I seriously love this dress, and plan to make another one once I stumble onto the right fabric. For this look, purple knits seemed appropriate. Mu purple Lune and fingerless Lovelace Gloves match beautifully in color, and I often wear them together. This sleeveless dress is starting to be a bit too cold to wear as is. Adding gloves, even fingerless, and a scarf add a lot of warmth to it. And the best part about winter accessories is that you can easily remove them if you get hot!
This look proved to be really comfortable, and I will most definitely wear it someday. The purple winter accessories look lovely with Jane’s Dress, and bat earrings push it closer to my own personal style. Along with the run-away strand of hair that seems to have escaped my bun.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s outfit post!
Until next time.
