I can’t recall, when my deep dissatisfaction with scarves started. It must have been winter obviously and i probably must have been sick with tieing them around my neck plus making me look like i was a michelin man (not having a problem with looking like a michelin man in general). Its pretty tough to dress properly and not in jeans and sweaters constantly in winter, but adding a scarf to the already trash outfit didn’t make it any better. But how does one keep oneself warm and still look OK? Like the unexpected headline predicted. Turtlenecks!
Its scary how often i wear turtlenecks indeed. A non-qualified statistical review of mine confirmed that its about 90 percent. So apparently i needed to share my deep wisdom with the world and show you some ways to try!
Now that the festive season starts, we can all assure, that wearing green, gold and tartan is totally ok and even required. It’s not like wearing these kind of colour combinations is bad, i surely get crazy everytime i see red tartan blankets or socks. But we should still have the ambition to not look like predicted or at least not appear in a little black dress nor ugly sweater (which might be fun also!). It should not be too hard to stay true to your style, but still look festive. THATS TRUUE! I created a few examples and tried to find as many sale items as possible. So here it goes!
This is for the more brave ones! Of course there needs to be one piece that reminds us of what we celebrate. Hence the proper classy cableknits and knitwear!

We are waiting for it the whole year. Since i am living in the northern hemisphere, we approximately calculate somewhat like 2-3 good weeks of summer. Well real summer i mean. The rest is usually a moody cocktail of cloudy, rainy, but sometimes also shiny weather, which makes you loose all of your optimism concerning wearing those satin leather slides you just got on a discount, but were still too expensive to tell your mum.
Of course going on holiday exists, but seriously, how long are you going to stay at that pool? Since there is no „i love to travel“ on my bio, this means 1-2 weeks.
Long story short. Go buy some stuff you can wear in summer, but ALSO in colder times.
1. Such as: a good midi skirt. Its a skirt right? So its providing you with air between your legs. That should be enough. Otherwise just wear some jeans beneath it, to make it weather appropriate. Some examples will follow.
2. Slides, you can also wear with socks. This does not suit to every kind of slide or mule in my opinion, but to most of them. Clash the styles, use thick wintery socks for your embroidered Dries Van Noten mules, wear shiny nylon socks with classic Slippers.
3. Sleeveless Tops. Even turtlenecks are in fact. And hey they would look great with that midi skirt and mules you just bought.
Wear an off-shoulder longsleeve top beneath it, when you’re scared of goose bumps.Or even a thick turtleneck, whatever you wear, it will look cool.
