Gold temporary tattoos were one of summer’s hottest trends, but that doesn’t mean you can’t apply the concept to the colder months of the year. Where there’s a will, there’s a way – you can totally get by winter temporary tattoos, proves PopSugar, with the right sets and the right placement. Even if your shorts and sundresses have already been put away and replaced with sweaters and jeans, fun temporary tattoos can endure despite the weather.
Even though the metallic gold look looks a bit summery in combination with bohemian and beachy designs, choosing a more seasonal ensemble can give the look a whole different vibe. Opt for small, whimsical pieces that you can place over what little visible skin you’ve exposed (chunky sweaters have their downsides, unfortunately), rather than armbands or large patterns. Silver is a good call, but gold is a festive hue too, so don’t rule it out – just choose a more wintry ensemble than the ones you’d see on the beach.
You can also take full advantage of the holidays with tattoos that don’t leave much room for interpretation: tiny Christmas trees are a particularly cute take on the season, and temporary snowflake tattoos are a big hit. great way to create your own winter wonderland vibe when the weather just isn’t cooperating with your hot chocolate and holiday cookie plans.
