To talk about the weather has always been one of my predilect topics for the blog, despite being that conversation topic you only bring out when you’re in the middle of an uncomfortable and clumsy talk to finish with the awkward silence -usually with total strangers-, because as we know it’s socially acceptable to talk about how much it’s been raining lately, the insufferable heat or how much you wish it to be Spring again. Personally I like to talk about the weather because, after the personal style, it’s the principal definer of what we are gonna wear that day, and it’s especially hard to do through seasons.

What can you wear when you’re walking in the cold to the office but once inside it’s hot as hell because of the A/C? The idea is to create layers, and to do that you don’t actually need to buy new things or limit yourself to thick fabrics, but to mix and match the things you already have. Look for garments you can easily take off without ruining the whole outfit, start with the lightweight fabrics and end up with the thick ones, that way when you’re inside of a tempered place you won’t feel your wool sweater itching, and if you come up with an harmonious color combination besides the ordinary black, white and grey, you get extra points.

Hablar del clima siempre ha sido uno de mis temas favoritos aquí en el blog, a pesar de ser ese tema de conversación auxiliar en una plática difícil y torpe -generalmente con personas extrañas- que sacas de la manga para terminar con el silencio incómodo, socialmente es aceptable hablar sobre lo mucho que llueve, el calor que hace o lo mucho que deseas que sea primavera otra vez. En mi caso me gusta hablar del clima porque, después del estilo personal, es el definidor principal de lo que nos vamos a poner encima ese día, y pasar de una temporada a otra siempre ha sido especialmente difícil.

¿Qué te puedes poner cuando caminas hacia el trabajo en el frío pero en la oficina hace un calor del demonio por el aire acondicionado? La idea es crear capas, y para crear capas no necesitas ni comprar cosas nuevas ni limitarte exclusivamente a telas de la temporada, sino mezclar y combinar lo que ya tienes. Busca prendas que te puedas quitar fácilmente sin deshacer todo el atuendo, comienza con las telas ligeras y termina con las más gruesas, de esa forma cuando estés en un interior no sentirás como tu suéter de lana comienza a darte comezón, y si puedes crear una armonía de colores que salgan del ordinario negro, blanco y gris, tienes puntos extras.
