And some days, it’s a real challenge to get out of the house. Why would you want to venture into the frigid February air when it’s so much easier to wrap yourself in a giant blanket and squat indoors? It’s not even your fault; blame Mother Nature. Consider this, though: now is the time to whip out all the trendy outfits you can because February is fashion month. And if ever there is a time to give it your all, to put the sartorial pedal to metal, so to speak, it is the month of fashion.
Whether you’re attending a Fall / Winter 2022 show in person or tune in virtually, February is a chance to push yourself out of your comfort zone for the sake of fashion. How about expanding beyond your favorite shades and trying out an unexpected winter color scheme? And don’t forget Valentine’s Day too; the love themed vacation is the perfect opportunity to take a maximalist approach to color by integrating vibrant reds and pinks into your outfit arsenal.
