Winter is a time to warm up your wardrobe with classic essentials and a touch of on-trend fashions. Get inspired to wear foundational favorites that outlast the test of time with brand-new items that will personalize your look for a brand-new season.
It’s sweater weather and there’s nothing better than popping on a warm, soft, cozy fabulous-looking sweater with any outfit. The fashion world are loving men’s and women’s sweaters this season to help you transition from season to season. There is everything from lightweight cardies, totally cute turtlenecks, slinky barely-there styles, oversized pullovers, long and lean dusters, and every style in between. Go for everyday neutrals like black, gray, and cream to get more bang for your sweater buck. Add one or two eye-popping styles that are colorful, graphic, and feminine and are sure to lift your spirits and your look on the darkest, dreariest winter day.
Classic Denim Jeans
This is a must-have staple for any season, especially the winter. Go for heavier denim fabric and either a straight, skinny, or bootcut bottom, so you can wear them with sneakers, both short and tall fashion boots, snow boots and your favorite feminine flats. Just a touch of on-trend distressing, preferably at the bottom hem to keep your legs warm is recommended. A darker blue wash or darker colored denim like black or brown is preferred for winter and will blend beautifully with sweaters, button-downs, hoodies, blazers, leather jackets, jean jackets, and tunic tops. Winter is a time to let your style sizzle and denim is the perfect go-to to heat up every look from casual to formal.
Comfortable Layering Tees and Camis
A winter wardrobe is not complete without layering essentials like short and long-sleeved tee shirts and casual camisoles. They not only keep us warm and comfy, but they also create a foundation for other tops to slide over. They also offer a flattering visual dash of dimension. For example, a longer tee or cami is the perfect layering piece underneath a shorter sweater, adding a bit of color and dimension while providing extra coverage for your hips and bottom. Go for a monochromatic color on color or make a fashion statement by combining different colors, patterns, and styles.
Leggings are extremely versatile and fit right into a warm winter wardrobe. They slip on so comfortably while looking amazing with tunic tops, all sweater styles, blazers, jackets, flannels, hoodies, dresses, skirts, and just about everything in your closet. Leggings work beautifully with a pair of leather sneakers, men-inspired loafers, or any style of boot. Go for a pair of basic black leggings to begin your legging journey, and you’ll soon see how many ways they work into your winter wear. As you become more comfortable wearing leggings, add more styles like faux leather and eye-catching colors and patterns to your legging wardrobe.
Super Fashionable Scarves & Kimonos
Two classic winter essentials that is always in style are whimsical kimonos and fashionable scarves. Part accessory, part apparel, both pieces instantly add pizzazz and style to any outfit. Scarves are available in a range of colors, fabrics, sizes, and price points and offer you unlimited style options. Simply drape one around your neck for a touch of classic charm or get creative and tie one into fashionable bows and designs. Slip a kimono over a blouse, tee, or sweater, and let the good times roll. You can even add a broach to either a scarf or kimono for a touch of beautiful bling.
Heavy Weather Proof Coat and Hat
Winter weather is unpredictable and can get very cold and wet. A must-have winter staple is a heavy weatherproof coat like a puffy coat, leather coat, or other style designed to keep you warm and dry. A hooded coat with a removable lining and plenty of pockets for winter gloves, phones, keys, and other essentials help you maneuver getting around when you are fighting the cold winter weather. A warm knit hat that can cover your ears and protect them from freezing and also looks flirty and cute is a handy and fashion-forward essential.
Bold and Beautiful Boots
Braving the colder temperatures and winter conditions calls for a pair of warm, cozy, and great-looking boots. Whether you prefer a western touch of fashion and go for lined cowboy boots, like a classic equestrian look and go for riding boots, or prefer a shorter shoe, boot combination bootie, boots are a must-have for your winter wardrobe. Wear them with everything from dresses to skirts and slacks to denim jeans. When the weather transitions to warmer temperatures, your boots will transition right along with you. Mix and match with colorful socks, leg warmers, and tights to get the perfect look. Boots are versatile and add a bold and beautiful touch to your look.
Casual and Cute Sneakers
When a casual look calls for a comfy and cute pair of shoes, go for a pair of leather or canvas sneakers. They are great for snow-free winter days when you are looking for street wear-inspired fashion. Leather and canvas sneakers are having a great big moment right now and are totally appropriate for work and play. Look for designs featuring chunky platform soles, whimsical artsy graphics, and super cute colorful accents like glitter. Some fashionistas are ditching the uncomfortable high heels and wearing casual and cute sneaks to more formal affairs like weddings.
Finishing Accessories and Jewelry
The finishing touch to every great winter outfit is the accessories. Necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings instantly transform an ok outfit into an absolutely a-ok designer-worthy outfit.
