Leather or knitted gloves, beanies, boots, blanket scarves, and shawls are must-have accessories to keep you warm without sacrificing style and comfort. You can go for neon and bright shades of your winter accessories to add some punch to your layered looks. For instance, you may pick a neon yellow beanie with your monochrome outfit or simply wear black leather gloves with your black-and-white attire to bring some edgy feel to your looks.
If you want something that will keep you warm and will go with most of your outfits, go for a cashmere sweater in the shades of black, white, brown, and other classic shades. This can be the dressy alternative to your feminine tops that are too lightweight or sheer for the winter season. So, you can pair your sweater with stylish skirt styles like pencil skirts, tulle skirts, miniskirts, A-line skirts, circle skirts and such to keep your look chic and feminine while keeping you warm. Also, a sweater will let you wear extra pieces underneath and over it without being too bulky like a chambray button down or any long sleeve shirt. Also, remember that you must not over-layer otherwise you’ll end up sweaty and hot. Just go for long sleeve shirts that are made of light and breathable fabrics to allow you to layer other pieces comfortably. Because they’re made of light fabric, you’ll also be able to use them on their own for the warmer seasons.
We often skip on puffer coats because we don’t like the bulk that it adds to our overall look, but puffer coats are very warm and cozy that’s perfect for the winter. If you want to wear them without looking too bulky, go for unzipped or cinched by the waist styles to lessen the bulkiness to your layered looks. Also go for bottoms have a skinny silhouette like leggings or skinny jeans to balance out the voluminous top. If you’re not a fan of puffer jackets, go for other fashionable styles like duffel jackets, fur jackets, and even jackets with floral prints but have a great insulation for you to keep warm while looking stylish. You may also add a cool edge to any outfit by simply throwing on a leather biker jacket on top as it instantly adds a ‘rough’ sense to it.
During winter, we tend to gravitate towards black pieces like a black coat, black pants, black tops, and black boots. To make your outfit more interesting, add on a pop of color by wearing a brightly colored coat or go for a stylish print on your coat to keep your looks interesting while being covered. Because layering clothes can sometimes add a little bit of bulk on your upper half, always balance it out with a slim silhouette at the bottom like leather trousers and skinny jeans for a cool style.
The key to cute and trendy outfits for the winter is to pick one piece of clothing that’s cozy, heavy, and warm and then keep the rest lightweight. As long as you’re comfortable with your layers, you can keep it going. This way, you keep your style not only stylish but also functional for the winter season.
