You know all the warm, long and dreamy summer nights when we did nothing but longing for cold, dark and melancholic fall nights? No? Not a sign of recognition? Well well, the cold, dark and melancholic fall nights are soon to be here anyways. There’s not much to do about it than to embrace it fully the one way we know how, by fashion and beauty. Here’s how to cozy up fall 2017!
Cozy Up Fall 2017: Fashion
First of all, the accessories are key! If you have yet to own an oversized blanket scarf you have yet to discover how to feel truly cozy. Pick one in a contrasting print or color to add some life to your fall outfit. A knitted beanie and gloves will also do wonders for the fall life. A matching pair is not something for the Pinterest fashion only, but a simple way to keep the color scheme in an outfit on point!
Layers will also keep you warm and cozy for fall. Catch some layering ideas in this post! The most important thing, I’d say, is to work with different lengths. Go for a top as first piece (to keep it warm), add a buttoned shirt secondly, choose it in a print or perhaps denim or classic white. The third piece is a cardigan, which can favorably be on the longer side. The fourth piece is a vest in a fun statement texture. Perhaps faux leather or faux fur, but dare to go statement at least!
Sometimes all we humans want to do is hide from the cold fall weather, my best friend in that situation is an oversized coat. Not only are they warm, they’re also cozy with the oversized style. Perfect to work up some layers underneath as in sweaters and shirts. As talked about in this post, on the perfect fall wardrobe, go for a midi style to make the most out of it!
Of course you have to go for the knitted pieces, as that hasn’t been clear enough already, lol! The knitted pieces are best done as sweaters, accessories and vests. They’ll definitely add the cozy life with the warm style and even better if they’re oversized! There are endless of colors to choose from, but especially knitted accessories are fun to do in fall colors. Go for mustard yellow, navy blue, forest green or burgundy. Perfect way to add some fun colors too!
Cozy Up Fall 2017: Beauty
Fall must be the ultimate season for doing home spa, if not necessary! Take time to indulge yourself in face masks, luxurious soaps and light some scented candles. We all need to relax every now and then and giving your skin a reboost, as well as your mind, is key! Pinterest will be your best friend for discovering DIY face masks! Just search for an ingredient you like and you’re more or less good to go!
Home spa can’t be done every day if we are to be realistic with our hectic lives. That’s where you add the magic of the everyday life. Tea and chocolate are two items I love to add to my daily life, because the world is harsh etc and too short to not do daily. You hear me? And to all of us spending the majority of our days hurled up in front of the computer, adding a blanket is key to keep it cozy and warm! I honestly use them as capes and secure them with belts sometimes, way to be a superhero in your own life, lol. Lastly, all the dark and cold fall nights are ultimate for catching up on some series and books. The result? Tea + chocolate + blankets + movies/books/series equals the ultimate way to cozy up fall 2017.
