The past 12 months has brought with it an extreme mixture of weather and temperature. An exceedingly warm spring 2012 was received excitedly by the UK but was then followed by an overcast and dismal summer. The summer turned into a particularly miserable autumn and no one was surprised when 2012 was described as the wettest year in recorded history. The last saving grace for many was the absence of snow. That is until now. This week saw the first of the country-wide snowfall and reports suggest that this is set to continue. Here are a few Islamic Fashion tips for coping with the snow.
Thick Winter Boots
Probably the most important part of the winter fashion itinerary. The feet are susceptible to the cold and the wet produced by the snow if not properly wrapped. Poor quality shoes and trainers will do little to protect the feet from the elements. Thick winter boots will keep the feet perfectly warm and dry and will help balance on slippery surfaces if they possess good grip.
The perfect winter warmer; pashmina scarves can be wrapped around the head, face, neck and shoulder innumerate times to protect them from the cold. The wide range of different colours, patterns and styles ensure that there is the perfect pashmina scarf for every occasion. The flowing style of the pashmina scarf means that it sits perfectly atop most Muslim Dresses.
A wool coat can be viewed as an investment for the future. It can remain a loyal and useful item of clothing for many years. A quality spun coat will not diminish in effectiveness in keeping the cold out regardless of age or extensive usage. The wool coat can be worn with almost any other items of clothing and is useful for both formal and informal errands.
Winter determines that fashion and function must go together, hand in hand. Long underwear has never been considered the most fashionable or sexy of accessories and garments, but it is incredibly useful at keeping the cold climes at bay. It is important in the winter months to layer up in order to keep the body temperature up and long underwear achieves just that.
It is still important to look good during the winter time. One of the most effective ways in which to do this is by adding accessories on top of all the more functional items of clothing. Bangles, scarves, belts and hats can complement a wide range of different clothing items.
