If we resist some impulse buying, these 2018 winter sales are an excellent opportunity to make smart investments.
Here are some tips for shopping: what you are going to wear NOW, you will use IN SPRING and certainly last IN THE FUTURE!
Winter is still long and the temperatures are swooping!
If you do not have an eco fur yet, this is the moment to buy one. And be it hairy and colorful!
A big trend this year: a check coat with masculine attitude is simply irresistible!
You will use it on a thousand occasions, during less cold days and waiting for spring.
Seasons change, trends pass, but a camel coat is forever.
Wide or straight, double-breasted or crossed, long or medium: the choice is yours!
DRESSES AND TOPS
A knitted dress. We talked about it in how to dress in style when it’s cold.
I love it with ankle boots, but also with lace-up shoes and (in a few months) with sneakers.
Now it’s a maxi, comfy cardigan, in spring it becomes a practical overcoat.
Outfit ideas? Skinny jeans and décolleté or leather pants and Doc Martens (or ankle boots).
There is nothing more comfortable than a short-sleeved sweater.
Perfect for the mid-season, it is a versatile ally for work or afternoon outfits.
SKIRTS AND PANTS
I love them to go crazy! High-waisted trousers, perhaps in a masculine fabric, are a must-have.
They have such a personality, you can match them even with the most basic pieces, obtaining a look of great effect.
Invest now in a nice pair of jeans: we all know how difficult it is to find the right model.
Those cropped model, you will wear them until late spring, with sandals and décolleté.
This year I bought a long velvet skirt: best purchase ever!
I wear it with thin sweaters, but also with a simple t-shirt. With the sales I will buy (at least) another one.
A beautiful jacket is vital for your wardrobe. From work, but also for leisure time.
But beautiful jackets cost: that’s why it’s worth investing with the sales. Now.
In this period, maybe you will wear them little, but eventually the weather will begin to get better…
Well, lace-ups shoes and loafers will be ideal with your tailleur, and with jeans and even a skirt too.
Another strategic purchase is undoubtedly the white shirt.
With its simplicity, it makes any style polished, not just for the office.
I have already told you about the beret and its timeless charm …
Classic in neutral colors, eccentric in the most vibrant tones. Delicious anyway.
Now you will wear velvet shoes only for the evening or for a few occasions, but during spring, you will wear them whenever you want.
When it is cold, use thicker pantyhose.
With the arrival of sunny, warmer days, you can even wear them without socks.
Since I use medium size cross-body bag, I have basically stored all the other bags.
Practical and not bulky: it is very comfortable and very stylish.
Actually, the Ultra Violet is part of the Pantone Spring 2018 colors.

Another recurring color in the Pantone Spring 2018 palette is yellow: there are even two shades.
Stock up on this vitamin color to liven up your spring outfits.
As a primary color, red will never go out of fashion and works all year long!
It is a powerful color, strong and passionate. Whether it’s a dress or an accessory, it will always be noticed.
