Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Winter Look

 **Advertisement Feature**

As the colder weather sweeps in, those long warm summer days already feel like a distant memory! If like me you’ve recently brought your winter wardrobe out of storage, only to be horrified by the sheer amount of black, dark grey and navy on offer, you certainly aren’t alone. In general we tend to be braver with fashion in the warmer months when the sun is shining, our mood is good and we’re perhaps feeling a little more confident about our bodies. However as winter comes around, we cover up, we hide away, and we stick to plain, dark colours that we think are easier to layer.

There are many advantages to this, but let’s face it, it can be boring. The good news is, you don’t have to go out and replace your whole wardrobe to update your winter look. There are actually some simple ways you can upgrade your look and how you feel ready for winter and we are sharing some of them below. 

Embrace Your Brows

Thick, luscious brows are very much in style at the moment, and they are perfect for winter weather when you want bold frames for your features and something that you can see despite the woolly hat. Stop overplucking, embrace your natural shape and pencil in any sparse patches. If you have thinner brows or have been guilty of extreme overplucking in the past, an eyebrow transplant can be an effective way to get a new look. An eyebrow transplant from The Treatment Rooms looks natural, will last, and is easy to maintain.

Change Your Hair Colour

If you prefer to wear darker colours, why not change things up with a vibrant new hair colour? Autumnal shades like copper, dark cherry, deep plum, and chocolate brown can look warming and fun at this time of the year. They are also a much easier colour to maintain during the winter months and can be very nourishing to the hair too. 

Get Crafty

If you fancy making some changes to your style and trying new things, but you are on a budget or don’t want to commit to a large expense on something that you aren’t sure about, then upcycling what you’ve got or getting crafty with charity store purchases can be a fun alternative. Add chunky, colourful buttons and pin badges to your favourite winter jumpers and patches to classic jeans and jackets. You could even learn how to embroider for even more customisation options.

Be Bold with Makeup

A splash of red lipstick or switching out your favourite rose blusher for a warming coral can be a great way to change things up without too much work. You might also want to try a bold new look with your eye makeup, swapping smoky eyes for more colour bringing out pops of colour from your clothing into your make up. Remember to double check your foundation shades (as our summer tans sadly fade away!) to ensure you have a good match for winter. 

Enjoy the Rain

Rain is unfortunately commonplace in winter, so why not make the most of it? Invest in a bright raincoat or fun wellies and switch your plain umbrella for something a little more fun. Bright yellow "fisherman" style rain coats always look so bright and fun in the winter months too, a little bit of sunshine on a rainy day.

Have Fun with Accessories

Whatever the season, accessories are the best way to upgrade a look on a budget. Add chunky pendants, large earrings, fun headbands and even colourful laces to your pumps or boots. Shop second-hand online, at vintage stores and in charity shops for some fantastic, cheap accessories that complement your style and let you play with fashion without needing new clothes.

Chunky jumpers, sensible coats and warm boots are always going to be a big part of your winter wardrobe. But that doesn’t mean that your style has to be boring or plain. Have fun with makeup, hair and accessories, and experiment with new things to enjoy your winter style a little more.
