PRACTICAL, WARM & COOL: 10 KEY ITEMS FOR YOUR WINTER WARDROBE



I have just come up with the perfect casual wardrobe: comfortable, warm, cosy, practical and cool, for the person that is not actually going to the office, it's probably a mum ( lots of bending and stretching) walks a lot and wants to keep it casual yet chic, right? . You are welcome! :P

After a few freezing days like last week, some of the Autumn stuff is not valid any more for me, so here is my list of ten, well, eleven essentials for those mums going to toddler activities, the woman working from home, or anybody that simply want to keep it casual..and chic!


Acabo de sacar en claro el armario casual más cómodo, calentito, acogedor, práctico, y chic para aquellas mujeres que no van a la oficina, trabajan desde casa, o son probablemente madres como yo ( corriendo detrás de un peque, subiendo y bajando, con mogollón de momentos de agacharse y levantarse, o sentarse e inclinarse) pero que me quiero sentir chic! A que sí. De nada! jauja :P

Después de unos dias como la semana pasada de frio absoluto, algunas prendas en mi armario de Otoño, como que no hacen nada ahí o no me servían para este tiempo. Así que, aquí tienes diez imprescindibles, bueno, once, para estar chic y casual.


1- BASE LAYERS

We should start from the base. Preferably, some thermal t-shirts or long sleeve tops.

That will keep you warm whatever you are going to put on top.

You can get good ones at Uniqlo and M&S.


1- LAS CAPAS BASES.

Empecemos por debajo porque si no, nos quedamos heladas. Una buena termal , o una camiseta de manga larga de algodón.


2- A CHUNKY KNIT DRESS

Because no one wants to wear jeans all the time in winter. A skirt can be difficult at times in winter, and it involves too many things: tights, and to think what to wear on top and a coat and what shoes depending on the shape of the skirt. A midi dress is a more practical approach.


Shapes: not everyone suits a tight dress and we may feel self conscious, personally with a column body type shape, I need to put a belt on these dresses or they will not do anything for me. the second option below is looser at the bottom half to eliminate the self-conscious part on that part.

Colours: I personally prefer a thicker knit and dark ( not black) again to avoid the obsession if any underwear is noticeable.


2- UN VESTIDO DE PUNTO, GORDITO.

Porque nadie quiere llevar vaqueros todo el invierno y te apetece cambiar pero estar calentita. Una falda implica pensar mucho en combinaciones de colores y prendas de arriba, medias, y abrigo, por eso incluyo un vestido.

Forma: Yo prefiero la largura midi. No todo el mundo esta cómodo con un vestido ajustado, el segundo que enseño es más suelto por abajo.

Colores: Aunque esta muy de moda los claros, yo elegiría uno más oscuro, no tiene por qué ser negro, pero si es claro, estoy obsesionada con el tamaño del trasero y si se transparenta la ropa interior.

3- A BIG COAT

Let it be a puffer, a wool coat, a faux shearling coat, whatever you like. The important thing is to cover your bottom half area as well as the top.


Shapes: I have not included here in purpose a wool coat, as much of a wool element they may contain, I have tried them in winter, mine is 80% wool, 20% alpaca, and I get cold as it's still too thin for me.

It all depends on your body temperature, I am one that gets cold really easily, so in purpose I go for these shapes.

Colour: Although I do have a black puffer coat, I am trying to get away from that colour.

My favourite types below:


3- UN ABRIGO, EN GRANDE

Aquí lo dejo a tu elección, si quieres abrigo de lana, uno de piel vuelta, o lo que quieras. Pero lo importante es que te cubra la parte de cintura para abajo, que se queda muy fría también.


Formas: Yo a propósito no he incluído un abrigo de lana, el mío es 80% lana y 20% alpaca, y yo me muero de frio porque es muy fino. Pero si a ti te funciona, ve a por ellos, me parecen muy chic, pero nada cómodos para mi gusto.

Color: Los de abajo son mis favoritos, intentando evitar el negro.

4- KNEE HIGH & ANKLE FLAT BOOTS


There is nothing warmer, as well as comfortable and practical that having some knee high flat boots or ankle flat boots. They will go great with dresses, some skirts and jeans tucked in.


Shapes: I don't particularly like the super chunky style this season, I do think we will get tired of it, and it will get to be a waste item in our wardrobe in a few seasons. However, I do like to adapt the trend, and my style will be a more feminine biker style.



Colours: Well, I go for black in my shoes. I would love to buy them in light or off white, but I am afraid to make it a waste in my wardrobe.


Some of my favourites styles and colour:


4- UNAS BOTAS POR LA RODILLA, PLANAS Y UNAS BOTAS ALTURA TOBILLO.

Me encantan estos dos tipos de bota, pegan con todo y son versátiles a morir.

Formas: A mi personalmente no me gustan las super gordas que están ahora de moda, o esas que parecen de jardinero. Prefiero adaptar el estilo "grueso' a lo más fino dentro de lo grueso o vasto.

Colores: Aqui me ciño al negro o al marrón, de piel.
