  • How to Stay Warm, Cozy, and Stylish

    It’s that time of year when the trees are bare, there is a chill in the air, and staying warm is an essential part of your wardrobe.

    However, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style this winter. It’s easy to stay fashionable during the winter months if you follow these tips to help you look fabulous and feel great this winter:

     

    Invest in a fabulous coat – A great coat that provides warmth and style the moment you put it on is a must. This is the item that will get the most visibility in the colder months so choose a quality piece that will last for several seasons and works with your signature style and daily routines. Try a pea coat in a neutral color such as beige, black, or navy.

    Layer It – Layering lets you keep warm without adding too much bulk and prevents you from getting too hot when you go inside. Bring back some of your favorite summer shirts and tanks layered under cozy cashmere, angora, and mohair sweaters.

    Cover your legs – It might be cold out, but that does not mean you have to wear pants every day until spring. If you love wearing skirts and dresses but want to protect your legs from freezing temperatures, consider investing in a few pairs of leggings and tights. In our recent #SonicChat, Michelle Phan recommended doubling up on tights. “It keeps the heat in but still looks cute. No frumps!” There are so many choices to try: thermal, patterned, or sheer, in any color. Classic black or nude is always chic, but colors can be fun to play with, too!

    Wrap it up – Scarves keep your neck warm and make a great addition to any outfit. Michelle Phan shared: “my favorite thing to wear that always looks fashionable but keeps me warm is a giant black circle scarf!” Choose cashmere, wool or even silk scarves that work well with your wardrobe to ensure you stay warm and look fabulous.

    Say yes to hats – Keeping warm and cozy during cold weather is easy if you’re sporting the right winter hat. And why not – there are lots of amazing, trendy hats to opt for this winter! If you’re not a hat person, consider trying out headbands and ear warmers.

     

    Boot up – No one likes cold or wet feet, so high-quality boots paired with warm socks are a must. To keep your toes toasty this season, consider investing in knee high boots – they keep your legs warm, your feet dry, and are stylish to boot. If you’re facing a wet winter this year, a pair of rain boots may serve you better than leather.

    Gloves – Pick a pair of gloves that suit your personality and lifestyle. Knit gloves are a fun and inexpensive option to keep your hands warm for walking or driving, or you may want to splurge on a pair of leather gloves if you are outside regularly and wearing your favorite winter coat. Either way, opt for a colorful pair to add a pop of color to your outfit.

    We hope these tips inspire you to refresh your cold weather wardrobe and stay stylish through the winter. If you’re in the midst of fighting the winter blues, be sure to check out our  Staying Sunny with Shorter Days post to learn how to improve your mood during winter’s shorter days.

    Share your tips for putting together a perfect warm and fashionable outfit!

  • Clarisonic Backstage at New York Fashion Week: Chris Benz

    Clarisonic was a hit for the second day in a row at New York Fashion Week. Our celebrity esthetician Eileen Harcourt was backstage at the Chris Benz show Monday afternoon prepping models with Clarisonic Sonic Cleansing and Opal Sonic Infusion systems. Several of the models remembered Harcourt from previous fashion events and couldn’t wait to get their Clarisonic facial!

    The theme of Chris Benz’s show was “An All-American Girl in Paris,” and Harcourt want to accentuate that theme with an “All-American Glow” look for each model with the help of the Opal Sonic Infusion System. By the time the models went through hair, makeup and wardrobe, they were truly looking their best!

    Harcourt also brought along the cute Blue Mia  – the newest Mia color – for models and fashion press to check out. (To order your own Blue Mia click here.) But the biggest backstage surprise of the day came when the famous YouTube beauty blogger, Michelle Phan, stopped by the Clarisonic station and raved about how much she loved all the products!

    Have you been keeping up with the latest trends at New York Fashion Week this season? What’s your favorite look? Share with us!
