I don’t know about you, but there comes a time in the winter months when I’m just over it. I’m sick of wearing sweaters. I don’t want to get dressed. It’s a struggle. And when that happens, I find there’s one thing that usually helps me big time. And it’s swapping out my dark wash denim, earth tone sweaters, all black pieces, whatever, for beige, cream and neutrals. The swap makes me feel instantly lighter and brighter. This time of year I find a little rejuvenation in my style by reaching for white jeans or off-white denim, and neutral sweaters and shoes. Here’s what to wear when you’re sick of winter.
What To Wear When You’re Sick Of Winter
As someone who doesn’t wear bright colors, to me, this is the easy swap for me that helps brighten my mood. It just feels like such a huge shift from dark, moody hues. Because of the big swing to lighter and brighter, it’s kind of impossible to not feel like you made a huge change in your closet. It feels fresh, and new, and like you’ve got a new lease on winter fashion.
If you love to wear color, maybe this doesn’t happen to you in the winter. Maybe you embrace your bold bright sweaters and colorful stripes and prints. But I just can not and will not wear that. I can’t explain it, but it’s just not part of my personal style and vibe. Have you ever seen me in something bright and colorful? As a matter of fact, many of these awful outfits from years past included bright colors and they were a big fail!
Maybe in the summer I may reach for a fun orange. And I do love lilac, but that’s very muted. And honestly, a good tan does wonders for me feeling more confident in a brighter color. Which is why I end up getting braver in the summer months.
But for winter, I always stick to my “colors”. And if you’ve ever done a color consult, you know what I mean! I’m a soft summer. And this basically means I lean towards more earth colors and muted tones. This explains why the majority of my closet and the pieces that I love, all fall into that category. As a soft summer, this also means I should avoid, especially around your face as it can wash you out, bright warm colors and primary colors. I’ll say, I had a few bright red shirts I owned and just felt like I never wore them. They only felt good in the summer if I was really tan, otherwise, I felt like I looked awful in them but could never pin point it. Knowing my colors has helped big time in choosing pieces for my closet.
