With cold weather already here, the winter season has officially started early for most Americans. As the weeks drag on, you’re bound to get sick of bundling up in your sweaters and puffy coats. It’s the perfect time to refresh your style.
But there’s no need to splurge on an entirely new closet full of clothes. Here are a few simple tricks to help you cure your winter wardrobe blues and invigorate your sense of fashion:
Taking care of your existing winter clothing (and hard-to-clean winter coat) is imperative! After months of storage, a thorough refresh is needed to keep your winter gear in tip-top shape. Machine washing can be tough on your clothes, especially delicate items. Take better care of your wardrobe staples with the Wi-Fi enabled LG Styler, a clothing care system that uses the gentle power of pure steam to refresh your clothes, reducing wrinkles and odor in as little as 20 minutes. For allergy sufferers, LG Styler not only sanitizes, but also removes allergens and is asthma and allergy friendly(R) certified by the experts at the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).
Look to social media
With so many fashion bloggers, it’s easy to stay up-to-date on the latest trends. Search Instagram for fashion bloggers that match your style — bonus points if they live in your area and share outfit inspiration that matches your current climate. These fashion gurus also often share sales and discounts that can help save you money when something catches your eye.
Color coordinate your accessories
If you’re bored of your basic, neutral pieces, energize your outfit by choosing a color theme for your accessories. For example, match red shoes to a pair of statement red earrings in an otherwise all-black ensemble or step up a sweater and jeans with a colorful printed scarf. Bold, bright colors reflect your personality. Animal prints and stripes can create an edgy, eclectic look. The possibilities are endless when you start to experiment with accessories and mix it up.
Declutter your closet
Many people stand in front of a closet full of clothes every morning but can’t find anything they want to wear. If this is you, it’s time for a closet overhaul. Spend a day going through every item of clothing you own. Keep what you love and wear regularly and donate the rest. You’ll be amazed at how refreshed you feel.
Invest in new pieces
Once you get rid of the clutter, you'll have a better understanding of what you need. A few updated pieces can take you far. If your winter boots are looking tired and worn out, try a new style. If you donated all your jeans, shop for the perfect pair to add to your collection.
You may be counting down the days until spring, but these tips will help you get through another stretch of cold weather. For more information on how to refresh your style and home, visit lg.com.
