  • Don’t replace the classic winter hat – There are enterprising hat makers that can commit a terrible fashion crime of creating novelty hats that look atrocious. The major priority when getting a winter hat is functionality. You’re wearing one primarily for protecting your head from extreme cold and not to make your head a showcase for silly-looking headpieces. Stick to classic winter hats like fedoras, ski caps, bowlers, and newsboy hats.
  • Leather up – Battling the elements like snow can be best done by wearing clothes with synthetic fibers. And wearing a leather jacket is a no-brainer. What’s great about leather is it has the 2 essential Fs: fashionable and functional. If your budget allows you to purchase only one or two leather jackets, choose black for its color so it can be paired with anything you wear inside.
  • Wear your vest – During winter, you can wear your best by wearing your vest. These sleeveless pieces not only add extra protection against the cold, but can also be an excellent additional fashion piece to your overall getup.
  • Wear a scarf – A scarf is another piece that can both protect you from the cold as well as provide a good accent to your attire. The neck is one of the foremost areas in our body that releases heat. Containing that heat with a scarf can help keep your body warmer. Of course, you have to learn how to tie your scarf properly.
  • Boots to boot – Your getup for your trek in winter wonderland won’t be complete without a pair of boots. Don’t make the mistake of wearing those UGG boots, lest you elicit second long but awkward glances. There are plenty of pairs out there that can make you look all dressed up and with somewhere to go.

Earrings For Every Face Shape

  • Oval – Oval faces are considered the perfect face shape. They have foreheads the same width as the cheekbones. These faces are slightly narrower at the chin. Women with oval faces are the luckiest because they look good in almost every style of earrings, although women with long noses should avoid earrings that are too long.
  • Round – Round faces are also known as “circular faces.” They are widest at the cheekbones and they do not taper to the chin. Women with round faces should consider elongated earrings and earrings that dangle beyond the chin. This is to lengthen the appearance of the face and avoid adding width or roundness. Earrings styles to avoid are large earrings that are round, bulky, wide or circular.
  • Heart Shaped – Heart shaped faces have foreheads that are wider than the cheekbones, and taper to the chin. Women with these types of face shapes should balance them with earrings that are wider at the bottom than the top. Teardrop styles and triangle earrings are great. Avoid earrings that draw attention to the cheekbones as well as earrings that are too long.
  • Square – Faces that are square have similar widths in their foreheads, cheeks and jawline. Earrings that are round will soften these lines in the face, while longer dangling earrings and hoops that will make the face appear smaller. Avoid wide earrings as they will serve to just make a square face look larger.
  • Narrow or Elongated faces – Also known as a “rectangle” face, it is a slightly longer version of a square face. Smaller studs and pearl earrings are ideal because they minimize the length of the face. Shorter dangling earrings work well because they minimize the length. Women with these face shapes benefit from wider earring styles.
  • Diamond – Considered the second best face shape. Women with diamond faces have foreheads and chins that are narrower than the cheekbones. These face shapes benefit from styles that are in correct proportion, although they should take care not to wear earrings that are too long as they will add unnecessary length to the face.
