Don't discard that boring old jacket just yet. Take this advice to spruce it up and add a fresh look.
Step 1: Add color Add color with a fun scarf and gloves. Many winter coats are boring black or brown and need a punch of color to brighten up those gloomy days.
TIP: Look for a scarf and gloves set so they're guaranteed to match.
Step 2: Carry an umbrella Carry a coordinating umbrella. Pop it up when weather permits to display a shield of color.
Step 3: Embellish with jewelry Embellish your coat with some jewelry. Add a little bling with a vintage broach.
Step 4: Wear a hat Wear a knitted hat if your coat does not come with a hood. It will keep you warm while giving you a great look.
Step 5: Focus on the feet Focus on your feet. Add a pair of trendy boots to complete your look and keep your feet as warm as your body.
TIP: Waterproof your boots to keep your feet dry and your boots free of stains.
Step 6: Sport a bag Sport a stylish bag, purse, or briefcase that not only complements your coat but also carries your shoes that you will need to slip on when you arrive at your final destination.
Step 7: Alter your coat Alter your out-of-date coat to update the look. Shorten the sleeves to a three-quarter style or bring up the hem. Change the buttons or add a faux fur collar for a fresh look. Now you can go outside and know you look good!
FACT: The record for the world's longest scarf as of 2010 is held by a group of Welsh knitters who knitted the 33-mile-long scarf in 2005.
