I like how every year the Oscars award ceremony sets the standards for the next few season’s fashion and they are by all means admire-worthy, unlike the anything and everything on the runways and bloggers go blah-blah about them. Oscar’s red carpet is serious. Every passing artist is inspiring in some way (though they have bloopers too), but anytime better than random oversized jackets and seasonal vegetables as part of the designs.
The 2017 Oscars was ‘alright’- not much drama there, unlike Ellen DeGeneres’ ‘groupfie’, which broke the Internet, and then Obama retweeted the post. It was an overdose of excitement. This year was rather simple. Following are the mention worthy wears for this year
I would like to begin by saying, I simply love hats. This black little Charlie Chaplin hat is a dear one of mine. I bought this one in one of the local street boutiques from Itaewon in Seoul, when I used to live there.
Hats, like sunglasses are a statement wear. Wear it and go! Its one of those effortless fashion wears, which captures the mood perfectly. For me the leather gloves, complimented the hat well. I enjoy the semi formal winter fashion of dressing, specially here in the prairies. I was wondering with my camera on a winter morning and I wanted to capture my sleepy winter Saskatoon neighbourhood.
Its been 10 months now and so far I am loving the western Canadian spirit of living. Different, yet familiar.
Well, I wont debate, when it is -30 outside anything that keeps warm, is the final thing. However, life is fair and gives us choices. So if I have to choose, I would love to go for the classic looking winter overcoats. They give a soft, classic and a formal impression, all at the same time.
Few tips I would like to share for choosing a winter outerwear, which I have learned from my previous experiences are:
Always watch out for the inner fabric which would be close to your body. If you are comfortable with the texture, you are almost there
Buttons are important. They give the ultimate finished look to the garment. I usually like the ones which have a metallic polish to it
Length is important to me. Yes, at times the long dress coats seem nice yet somehow they don’t give that edgy look, no matter what your height is. A knee length or a little above the knee(I am 5’4 inches) coat is safe for sure.
I think dressing proper, neat and smart is very important for ease, mobility and ultimately to make memories in winter
