Five Fashion & Beauty Tips to Beat the Winters Blues
Here in NYC the snow is gray and the sky is gray. With no end in sight to winter, it leads a fashionable mom to get a bit gloomy. We’ve got five simple ways to perk up your dreary wardrobe. Guess what? None of them will cost you more than $100. So read on and get ready to let the sun shine in on your look.
Brush on the bronzer. Nothing reflects the dull days of winter like a pallid, dry complexion. Whip out your favorite exfoliator the next time you are in the shower. After putting on your post-shower moisturizer, brush on some bronzer–you’ll look much more lively. Our favorite is from Bobbi Brown ($33)
Statement necklaces are awesome. And the best place to find unexpected delights, such as this necklace ($29) is on Etsy. Etsy is a site that holds handmade treasures–many are one of a kind. Pick up a sunny necklace and wear it with all the black you already own. You’ll be surprised how happy it makes you.
Spritz on some spring. Maybe you’ve given up on smelling like anything but wet wool. Don’t be a quitter. Roll on a little spring in a bottle with a new scent. We like the pink grapefruit essences in Kate Spade’s Twirl ($60).
Buy color on sale. We know, we know. You already have a closet full of sweaters. But do you have anything that can carry you into spring like this cotton cable sweater from Lauren (sale $34.99). At this price we dare you not to smile. Wear it now with denim and then toss it over your shoulders when the weather heats up. So scour the sales right now and look for something bright. Buy it. Wear it.
You deserve a pair of new boots if you’ve weathered as many storms as I have. Opt for something that is anything but basic. This eggplant Kamik Boot (The Ellie $70) will do nicely.
