Get Through a Mid-Winter Fashion Slump

By Maggie Malach

Woman bundled up for winterThis is the time of year when I get stuck in a creativity rut. I am over wearing boots everywhere, my clothing options seem spent, and I am very ready for spring to hit. With this in mind, I have devised a few ways to boost your (and my!) attitude until warmer weather rolls around.

For those who want a more drastic change, switching up your color is a way to make all of your clothes look differently. When I just need to brighten up the winter months, however, I have found there is nothing like a set of foils to add a splash of sun to your appearance.

When I need an extra sparkle in my wardrobe, I hunt down some fun jewelry. Places like Target and Forever 21 are great if you want trendy pieces that will just last a season. For more permanent, yet still affordable, accessories, try Banana Republic or J.Crew.

However, I have found that by changing up my winter accessories I am able to pull through these gray months. After finding an absolute steal on a sleek (yes, sleek) wool coat, I invested in a trusty pair of leather gloves and a few fun scarves. If I am going to be forced to layer for warmth, I figure I might as well have fun doing it.
