When I went home to France for winter break, I realized that hot weather was just a distant memory and I had to welcome snow back into my life. Being home was marvelous but I wanted to feel the “hot inside and outside” notion again. Finally, it was time to go back to Florida and forget about my coat, and everything that could remind me of winter. Of course, I did not realize that “winter blues” spread out everywhere in North Florida. Only people who live up north can relate. However, I am sure that this winter breeze in Florida surprises a lot of you. Now, the question is how to deal with this weather?
It’s time to “winterize” your summer clothes. If you live in Florida, you don’t want to be forced into buying a handful of winter clothes that you will only use for two months. You and I both know that you can use the money for something else. Think smart. I am going to give you some ideas on how you can recycle your summer clothing into successful winter clothing.
- First tip: What do you think about wearing a dress or a skirt during winter? It might seem like a risky and perilous idea. Indeed, it will be if you only wear a dress. The key is to wear it with tights or leggings. It’ll keep you legs warm and you will look more seasonally appropriate.
- Second Tip: As I said early, for a winter in Florida you do not need a coat. You have to layer your clothes for winter. It is time to start piling. Layering is the number one way to survive winter. You probably already saw that girl wearing a thin sweater with a cardigan and a sleeveless fur on top. Well, this is what we call layering.
- Third Tip: We are going to talk about accessories. Those will save your life for this “cold” winter. Anything from a hat to a scarf and gloves will be your best bet. Another accessory that people do not always think about is knee-high socks. There are thousands of ways to wear these kinds of socks. First, you can wear it underneath your jeans if you are a little bit shy. Second, for the brave, you can wear it with a skirt or dress and boots.
Here are examples of how to winterize your summer clothes. Good Luck!
