6 Fashion Tips For Really Cold Weather

Now that winter is around the corner, it’s time to take out our winters clothes from their hibernation state and start using them again. It’s time to start remembering all the winter clothes that you have and the new ones you bought last season. They are never enough though!

No matter, how many jackets, shawls, hoodies we buy every year, we always seem to lack something when it comes to dressing for an early winter morning! To save yourself from this trouble, here are some of the fashion tips you can follow that can help you dress up quick for really cold weather.

1.  Layering is a key

Wear everything you have, one over another to ward off that cold weather. This may sound silly but it is feasible to save yourself from the bitter cold. Layering is an art that you should become a pro in. A single winter cloth is never warm enough to keep coldness at bay. To keep yourself tucked in safely and away from the biting cold, start layering. 

Start with a turtle neck sweater, above it goes a jacket and a woolen stall and finally, layer with an overcoat. Similarly, you can wear thick woolen tight pants or sheet stockings below your skirt or jeans. Also, you can choose to wear a warm fitting sweater below your T-shirt to balance cold and fashion together.

2. Good boots save your day

Good boots take you to good places! Ankle length boots or over-the-knee boots – both are known for stealing the show anytime, anywhere. Pairing over the knee boots with a short skater skirt will not only make you look chic but comfortable and warm too. Use your ankle boots with cuffed jeans or a dress to be fashionable as well as warm at the same time. Don’t throw off your winter boots just because it’s just too cold and snowing outside.

3. Use belts overcoats 

Using belt over your coats will not only make your loose fitted, lifeless coat get some life but it will also turn your look trendy and afresh. Belts make the coats fit perfectly without letting them dangle lifelessly over your body. Investing in a good broad belt to provide a new look to your old coats is the best choice you can make this winter.

4. Having fur attire is essential

Winter is the only favorable season that lets you be extra cute. Do not miss a chance to wear fur or faux fur coats and feel over the moon. Faux fur coats not only protect you from extreme cold weather, but they are also comfortable to your skin and add to your demeanor well. Be it fur coats, fur mittens or stalls; lose no chance to show off your cuteness this winter season.

5. Scarves are savior

You can never underestimate the number of ways the scarves can be worn in. You can simply be creative by wearing your scarf creatively and flaunt a confident and comfortable look. Scarves around your neck, shoulders or even over your head provide much-needed warmth and provide an extra layer to your winter attire too. 

So, in all coats, scarves, boots, and overcoats – that’s what your winter wardrobe needs to get revamped this winter season!

5 Tips on Selecting the Right Outfit for Gym

When it comes to choosing the right outfit for the gym, it can be tough to decide. With seasonal weather and ever-changing fashion trends, it is difficult to keep pace with fitness fashion industry.

As a matter of fact, we would highly advise you to focus more on comfort, and less on fashion. This is perhaps because what you wear while working out can impact your body in a range of ways.

Thus, let’s get started and have a quick look at how to select the right outfit for the gym.

Take a look!

  • Is it comfortable?

It is highly recommended to wear clothes that let you move and don’t constrict you. Simply put, choose fabrics that allow your skin to breathe.

Further, pay attention to the fitting of the clothes because outfits that are not too tight and fit just perfectly will let you move in all directions. However, this doesn’t mean that you should choose baggy clothes as those will come in your way while you exercise.

  • Can it be layered with other outfits?

Make your wardrobe versatile by including outfits suitable for both hottest and the coolest months. Avoid overspending as seasons change. You can do this by layering your outfits during winters. You can start with a t-shirt or a top and then add a pullover over it. For wind-proofing, cover yourself with a windbreaker. Further, try shopping in off-seasons to save your money.

  • Is it flexible enough?

Try purchasing clothes that provide you enough flexibility like gym shorts, sweat pants, track pants or yoga pants. Such flexible cloths will let you stretch your hands and legs easily during workouts. Along with flexibility, do take care that the clothes are breathable enough.

  • Are the chosen outfits in line with your daily exercise regimen?

                                                                                                                                                              Make sure that the outfits you buy are a perfect fit for the activity you are performing. You should always make a trial by performing activities you intend to do in order to gauge if it is the right fit.

  • Do you need any advanced features?

If you like to keep pace with technology, it is important to mention about a new range of outfits that are available today. Outfits today come with in-built treatments that fight the microbial action on the skin due to sweat. This helps you in fighting the body odor.

Further, you can also choose the outfits that provide ultra-violet protection to fight sun’s harmful UV rays. Similarly, gym outfits with permethrin, that is an insect repellant, are also available in the markets today. Such clothes protect you from all the ups and the downs you while exercising in the gym.

Your Turn

The more frequently you exercise, the more important it is for you to wear the right kind of clothes. Keep yourself as comfortable as possible with the perfect clothes.

So, do a proper inspection of the clothes before buying and select the right one for yourself.

Always got makeup on your clothes? You need to know this!

Getting makeup on your clothes, for most of us, in an inevitable part of life.

Even if you go makeup free for the day, your best pal giving you a hug can result in foundation marks all over your crisp white shirt.

But fret not, as there is a way to remove stubborn makeup stains from your favourite clothes.
Here’s what you need to know:

Foundation is often oil based and designed to be long lasting, hence why it can be hard to remove from fabric fibre once it rubs off your face onto your shirt collar.

Seeing as makeup is created with pigments and oils designed to be long lasting on the skin, they’re often hard to budge from clothes, too.

It’s important to treat the stain as fast as you can to avoid it settling in and use a detergent that targets greasy stains.

Nonetheless, there should be a way to get your gowns good as new.

For foundation, mascara, lipstick, sunscreen or eyeshadow, pre-treat with a powerful detergent such as and pour enough directly onto the stain, to cover it.
Spread it over the stain with the pre-treat cap.

Then dose with a detergent that specifically target tough greasy stains, but also enhance your whites to leave them bright and pristine, and set your wash on the warmest temperature allowed as per the garment’s care label.

With any item, you should always check the label before you put it in the wash.
So when you get lipstick on your velvet dress, ensure you check it out before just throwing it in.

If your new velvet jacket says dry clean only, it’s probably pure velvet, made from cotton or silk, so don’t clean it yourself just to be safe!
Some velvets are safe to wash however, such as crushed velvet and polyester blend velvets made from an easy-care fabric.
It’s important to always check washing instructions on delicate items.

Depending on the label instructions, it can be preferable to wash velvets on a cooler temperature, to avoid shrinkage or affecting the shape or delicate fibres.

Turn the item inside out to avoid fibre abrasion and try a detergent that removes greasy cosmetic stains, but on a cool wash, to keep your fabrics intact.

There’s also the hairspray method!

Grab any hairspray you can find and spray it onto the stain – it doesn’t even matter if it’s a fresh stain or not. Let the product settle for about 5 minutes before taking a wet tissue to wipe away the product. The hairspray will dissolve the chemicals of the lipstick, and get rid of the bulk of it.

After that, run the fabric under cold water before ending it off with a rinse of warm water. This removes any remaining product and pigment on the fabric!

Using makeup wipes for powder products!

By powder pigment, we’re talking about your eyeshadows, your blushers, and your bronzing powders. Using makeup wipes to remove these powder-based makeup stains is a trick that has long been used backstage at major fashion shows. It’s so simple and requires very little of your time.

First, remove any excess powder pigments from the fabric by gently sweeping it away. After that, take a piece of makeup wipe and gently dab it onto the stained area. If the stain persists, take a cotton ball and use a makeup remover solution and repeat the same steps. To end it off, run the fabric under cold water to completely remove remaining pigments.

You can use makeup remover liquid too.

Shaving cream works?

Shaving cream is another product known to remove the toughest of stains! First, apply shaving cream onto stained area.

Let the product soak for about 10 minutes before applying dabbing motions to the area. You might want to use a bit of strength to see effective results.
