This year has now officially reached the point where the darkness outside feels simply crushing. It has gradually painted the world with it's melancholic undertone while adding to the negative side of people's energies. Beneath the cloak of this all-consuming blackness even the track of time itself gets lost. In constant darkness, nights turn into days and days into weeks. This sure confuses our biological clocks; sometimes it's hard to even tell apart noon and midnight! The coziness and warmth of one's bed has become irresistible in the mornings, and motivation regarding any outdoor activities has definitely reached an all-time low.
What comes to clothing in these dark times, I say fight fire with fire! The worse it gets outside, the cozier and softer the clothes ought to be. Aim for the feeling of a warm hug! Key words here are fuzzy, chunky, over-size, knitted, cashmere, wool, and soft leather, to name a few. Furthermore, it's always a good idea to add some artificial shine in terms of details! Statement jewelry, bags or shoes (comfortable ones!) work wonders in lifting the fashion spirits. At the moment I'm personally getting cravings for all different shades of white - almost as if my subconsciousness would be waiting for the first snow! Sending a virtual hug to all those dealing with the darkness, you've got this.
