Whether you enjoy the cold-weather or prefer to bask in the sunshine, winter is a time of year like no other. So put the baggy sweats away, reserving them for house chores and gardening, and embrace the season while staying on trend. Below is a list of fashion staples you need in your closet.
The cold weather is here. However, that doesn’t mean that your feet need to feel it. Winter boots come in a wide range of styles. On the job site, brands like Doc Martens boots protect your feet while remaining comfortable, warm and stylish. Slip-on styles featuring fur-lined interiors are wonderful for keeping you warm while outdoors. Casual boots made of leather featuring rugged soles are awesome for hiking. And, knee-high boots are wonderful for use with long sweaters and skinny jeans.
Most people have several winter coats. Wool is beautiful and heavy. It’s a staple that offers a timeless appearance well respected whether heading to the office, going out on a date or an outing with friends. It lets you maintain body heat, while complimenting your wardrobe. For casual snow adventures, the puffer coat is still the first choice. Whether you're interested in a cropped or full-length jacket, it provides endless warmth and style. Just make sure if you choose to shop online that you research size and material to ensure the color and fit are desirable.
Leggings are a fashionable accessory currently on trend for any season. During the fall/winter months they have multiple platforms. The form-fit adds appeal to a dress or oversized sweater while adding warmth. They are super cute and comfortable, especially ones containing higher amounts of spandex. Just remember leggings made of this material tend to run small.
Jeans are something that never go out of style. While they will have variations over the years, they are a staple in any wardrobe. From designer jeans to the classics in blue denim, black and white, they offer flattering fits, durability, and comfort.
Oversized knit sweaters and form-fitting dresses are all the rage. Crew, turtleneck, and funnelneck are all in fashion. Solid colors in cable knit are on trend. Crop cardigans in pull-over and button-up styles and the classic cardigan are also strongly supported. You’ll also find sweater sets featuring matching tops and skirts, as well as sweater vests with flattering v-necks. Just add your favorite jewelry or fashionable scarf, high-heels or chic boots to complete the look.
Faux leather is making a comeback. It’s a growing trend. You can find clothing items like wrap-around skirts in classic fall/winter colors, pants and jackets too. It’s soft and flattering and inexpensive by comparison. It’s also eco-friendly, man-made and hard to tell apart from real leather. Whether you are attending a formal or casual gathering, faux leather articles fill the bill.
When the cold weather rolls in, it's always beneficial to have a stylish pair of trousers on hand. Tailored trousers are well-suited for professional environments. Pleats in the front add appeal and make it possible to wear a tucked in blouse. Popular colors trending are classic black and camel.
Most people spend more time indoors during the winter. That’s why it’s important to stay warm and stylish whether lounging or hosting a party for the holidays. Sweats made of sherpa are super cute and extremely comfortable. Jogger sets made of fleece provide ever-lasting coziness while making a serious fashion statement.
Winter is a wonderful time of year to combine comfort and style into your wardrobe. It’s also a way to make a personalized fashion statement. Use the above as a guide to build on.
