Cozy Chic

Even though it is winter, you can still dress chic and still be cozy. During the Winter layering is important. To add interest use bright colors like red and pink.

STYLE TIP: In Secondlife it is hard to find good hats with hair for men. A lot of times, we have to mod the hat to make it bigger to fit the hair, mod the hair to fit the hat, or just go with out hair in the first place. Here’s a tip for you. Buy a hair that already comes with a hat, in this case I am using MADesigns Boston Style. Once you get the hair fitted to your head, it’s time to mod. Before you do anything if the hair style allows, make a copy of it. Right click and edit the hair to bring up the build menu. Make sure you have the Edit Linked box checked. Select just the hat and size it down or add an alpha texture to the prims of the hat. This tip only works for hair that is mod. I also would not recommend doing this to hair that is no copy.

STYLE TIPS: If you find items that are modifiable but do not come in the color you are looking for, try buying it in a light shade such as white or gray and then using the edit menu to tint it to the color you are looking for.

Home Is Where The Hearth Is

While winter has never been one of my favorite seasons, one of the benefits that cold weather brings is the arrival of winter clothes.  I love to capture the feel of the season in SL by utilizing all of my clothing layer options.  Layers help give an outfit depth and allow us to incorporate so many varying looks into an ensemble.  Throw a roaring fire into the equation and you can stay warm no matter how cold it looks outside!
