The layered look: how form and function can flatter any figure-Ranch Wives Edition
Article by Lana Stukel
As the cold winter months have set upon us I have developed a winter wardrobe to give you a look that will be admired by all you see. This is a winter wardrobe where form and function meet to flatter any body shape. So when your daily activities must take you from the fireside and out into the frigid cold take heart that your layered look can provide you with a fabulously functional way to stay warm this winter.
Step one: Unmentionables Not much to say here for obvious reasons so just grab your skivvies and move on.
Step two: Thermals A good pair of thermals is a necessary aspect of any girls wardrobe. Whether you choose a cotton or spandex blend just go with whatever keeps your buns toasty!
Step three: Long sleeve and luxurious Alternate long sleeve shirts of various fabrics and textures to create that luxuriously layered look. Watch that neck-line ladies and keep it classy!
Step four: Overalls I am all over the overalls this winter. Wear over a pair of pants and your luxurious layers to tie the look together while providing additional storage to hold all your goodies!
Step five: Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize! From headwear to footwear put the fab in fabulous! I prefer to deck my noggin with a knitted ski mask to keep my nose warm while allowing for easy breathing. Heavy mouth breathing while performing outdoor tasks can quite literally leave you with a bad taste in your mouth. Warning! Don’t forget to remove mask prior to running to the bank or you may find yourself in a rather awkward position. When it comes to gloves I keep up the trend by layering cotton with supple elk skin. Don’t go cheap on the boots- pick something that can withstand the cold, keep you grounded and protect those piggies.
Now you are ready to venture outside where your many admirers will fill the air with their cries of adoration. Do not let this go to your head however because even the most ardent of admirers can be fickle if you shirk your duties. Even the most luxuriously layered look will be met with disdain if you do not show up on time or are stingy with the rations. To be honest their adoration has less to do with you and more to do with who is holding the pitchfork. Regardless of the fickleness of your followers you will have the knowledge that as you go about your duties you look fabulous! Stay warm everyone! ... See MoreSee Less
