When the temperature drops, naturally you want to bundle up. Bulky layers though can sometimes feel redundant or boring. The truth is, you don’t need to give up being fashionable during the winter months. With creativity and the right pieces, you can stay warm and look put together. We collected tips and included cute winter outfits to revitalize your cold-weather style.
HOW TO WEAR A DRESS IN WINTER
You’re in the mood to wear a dress, but don’t want to expose skin to the chilly air. The solution is a gorgeous maxi dress with sleeves to cover shoulders. Do you love wearing flannel in the winter, but want a dressed-up look? Try a maxi flannel shirtdress. You can also transition a shorter-hemmed dress for cold days by adding patterned tights or lined leggings.
BOOTS ARE FOR WALKING AND WARMING
Boots are also excellent in warming up an ensemble. They add sophistication to your look whether you’re wearing them with a dress or layering over pants. It also gives you the chance to wear plush, soft socks underneath. You won’t miss bearing legs at all when you have a chic fur-trimmed boot
or over-the-knee statement boot to face the cold in.
HOW TO DRESS UP PANTS
Pants keep legs warm, but sometimes feel too practical. To dress up the look, pair them with a statement top. A little sparkle or a top made with a sumptuous fabric such as velvet can take an outfit from ordinary to head-turning.
ADD GLAM TO YOUR OUTERWEAR
You probably have a standard winter coat reserved for cold days, but it might leave you feeling a bit shapeless. Add a belt to the mix. A handsome leather belt will give you a waist and will look chic when you’re walking down the street. You can also amp up your outerwear game with a new piece. A luxurious coat, blazer, or duster will make you feel like a snow queen.
PULL ON A SOFT SWEATER
Sweaters exude a polished yet warm look. On its own, sweaters are soft and cozy, but they can also be used for layering. Pull over a blouse; or for really cold temps, layer over a turtleneck. Long cardigans are also beautiful ways to complete an outfit.
Adding wraps or scarves will keep your neck warm, plus it will add color and texture. Experiment with different shapes and tie configurations. A larger one can even be turned into a shawl or shrug. To add whimsy to your look, try snugly accessories like a cute hat and mitten set.
Refreshing your cold weather wardrobe is easy. Instead of wearing the same coat and pants all season, layering clothes, adding accessories, or trying new pieces can invigorate your look. Find more stylish options here.
