Bundled Up Style

Yasmin here for another post on our Bratz Trends Blog today! Lots of our friends have been asking us for tips to dress during the cold Fall and Winter months, so I decided to take the lead to talk about stylish bundled up fashion.

Just because the weather is a drag, doesn’t mean our fashion has to be drab. Right, Bratzies?

There are so many ways to jazz up an outfit even when the weather is trying really hard to give us a “bad outfit day.” I recommend sticking with styles that you know you love and feel comfortable wearing. The important thing is to stay warm!

If you are still looking for more tips, I’ve put together a quick list of Do’s & Don’t’s for ya below!

The Do’s

  • Definitely Layer Clothes – it makes it easy to go from outdoor to indoor weather without freezing or overheating.
  • Be Scarf & Gloves Ready – these are great accessories that look good & help keep you warm. They’re also easy to stuff in a backpack or handbag…even a large coat jacket!
  • Consider a Hat – a lot of heat escapes from the top of the head, so a hat is a good way of trapping that heat to keep in “storage” on a cold day.
  • Mix & Match – a good rule to stick with in every season. Mix summer prints with winter colors or summer colors with winter prints.

The Don’t’s

  • Wear Summer Shorts or Dresses – it’s too cold for summer fabrics unless you cover those legs with tights or leggings.
  • Go outside with wet hair – even though wet hair may not get you sick, wet hair in cold weather sure does make someone feel colder than usual!
  • Forget to moisturize – cold weather often dries out skin & lips. Don’t forget to apply chapstick & lotion.

 

Indoor Fun

Cold days and winter weather is here and that means there are times when we are stuck in the house due to the snow and rain.

I really love being adventurous so sometimes it’s hard to stay inside all day. I get the worst cabin fever! Whenever that happens though, my mom always knows how to entertain me! First, she suggests that I get cozy by the fire in the living room and read the newest issues from National Geographic or Teen Vogue. My mom tries to help me avoid being on the computer all day, but sometimes she’ll even hand me the laptop so I can read up on all my favorite fashion blogs like Refinery 29, Sea of Shoes, & StyleBistro. But I can only sit and read for so long before I need to do something else. Next, my mom will take me into the kitchen with her and I practice cooking. It’s super fun! And I always get to make myself a nice cup of hot cocoa and add as many marshmallows as I want. That always makes me happy!

Board games are also a fun way to pass the time. My fam will all sit around in the living room and play games like Monopoly (which can take soooooo long to finish), UNO, and Pictionary.

I must say that the coolest indoor activity my mom came up with was surprising me with an at-home chemistry set and encouraging me to create new nail polish colors. It’s so rad! I sit in the kitchen for hours trying to mix up what I think are the hottest colors of the season. I may even bottle them up and gift them for friends this upcoming Holiday.

How do you entertain yourself when you’re stuck inside?
