A belt will look best on a long coat or cardigan or even a long skirt. You can pair a long dress with a belt in the waist for a beautiful date night look.

You can also pair an elegant blazer with a long dress for a chic and glamorous look. 

8. Accessorize

Accessories never go out of style, not even in winters. If you want your outfit to stand out then you gotta accessorize it. However, the rules for adding some bling and glam in winters is slightly different than that in summer. As a general rule, the bulkier your outfit is, the less accessories you should wear but make sure that it is big and vibrant enough to catch some attention. For example, if you are wearing oversized sweaters, coats or blazers then you can wear big statement earrings with it for a fancy look. Hoop earrings, both silver and gold, are in trend. 

But if you are wearing a fitting turtleneck sweater then you may experiment with a statement necklace and keep your earrings lighter. Do not go for very simple or small accessories, especially when it comes to earrings or necklaces because they will be overshadowed by your heavy outfit. However, in winters you do have more options for accessories including gloves, hat, scarves and more. So keep experimenting with accessories to bring out the stylish diva in you!
