Sum­mer sta­ples go win­ter-per­fect

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - (WITH IN­PUTS BY ANUJ LAL­WANI, STYLIST)

The nip in the air is pretty tan­gi­ble, but it’s not the time to fully raid your win­ter wardrobe. So, play it smart and style in in­tel­li­gent ways to re­vamp and re-use your sum­mer sta­ples to fit the sea­son. From top­ping a breezy with a pullover or cardi­gan to lay­er­ing your cot­tons with cardi­gans and jack­ets — give a win­ter treat­ment to your sum­mer stash. Here are some tips:

THE FUN IN LAY­ER­ING: You don’t have to put away favourite flo­ral and cot­ton en­sem­bles. Layer th­ese up with a light­weight jacket or blazer to add some fun to your win­ter wardrobe. You can also pair sum­mer shorts with sheer stock­ings for a fun look.

CLEVER COM­BOS: Turn a sum­mer dress into a win­ter-per­fect skirt by putting on a pullover or graphic-print cardi­gan. Pair this ensem­ble with knee-high boots and you’ll be pulling off the sea­son su­per stylishly, and like a com­plete pro.

MAX­IMISE YOUR STYLE: Typ­i­cally con­sid­ered sum­mer-per­fect, maxi dresses can work beau­ti­fully dur­ing the win­ter sea­son as well. They keep your legs cov­ered, and, if worn with a nice woollen shrug and fun an­kle-length boots, they can also do a won­der­ful job of keep­ing you to­tally snug.

TURTLE­NECK TRICKS: In­vest in a high-qual­ity turtle­neck or two. Keep the colours solid and neu­tral. You can work the high neck in fun ways with al­most any kind of sum­mer fixes like pas­tel shift dresses or skirts.

ADDING SOME FLARED PANACHE: If you thought your sum­mery palaz­zos in quirky pat­terns would be hard to pull off in the cold months, think again! Pair your flares with a well-fit­ted jacket in a win­tery hue of grey or black and an­kle-length boots, turn­ing your sum­mer pants into a per­fect win­ter ensem­ble.
