Between you and me, there’s nothing a pair of over-the-knee boots can’t do to jazz up an outfit. Not only are they versatile, you can use them as an extra layer for warmth during winter. Consider investing in a great pair (make sure to check out your local Crossroads!) for an easy, effortless way to make a casual outfit look more chic.
Any of these combinations are a fail-proof shortcut for pulling off over-the-knee boots.
When the temperatures drop, your style doesn’t have to suffer. Here are five looks from some of our favorite bloggers to inspire your next cold weather outfits for warmth and style!
Cable Knit Crazy
The thicker the knit, the warmer you’ll be! To recreate Michele‘s look, layer your favorite cable knit sweater with a heavy coat and top it all off with your cutest beanie.
Keeping it Colorful
I love that Dylana dresses in color despite the snowstorms in New York! From her makeup to her rust-colored cords, she inspires us to stand out even in the nastiest weather.
Maja knows that you can’t go wrong with all black, and playing with proportions in layering creates interest in an otherwise minimalistic outfit.
Layers, Layers, & More Layers
Become a layering expert (see tips from Melanie here)! Tights under your pants, a thin long-sleeve tee under your sweater, and a scarf and a hat on top of it all will help you stay warm when you’re venturing out into those freezing temperatures.
Use Your Coat as a Statement Piece
Natalie doesn’t let cold temperatures keep her inside! Being so bundled up can put a damper on your style, but there are so many different coats and jackets that make a statement all on their own!
With the holiday season in full effect, you’re probably running around trying to get last-minute gifts, juggling multiple holiday parties, and trying to spend quality time with loved ones. The last thing you want to stress about is what to wear while you’re already overextending yourself. You can certainly go for the tried-and-true formula—semi-formal, a dress or slacks, something with muted or jewel tones. Or, you can throw all the rules out the window, have fun and enjoy yourself in a bold look!
Below, I’ve rounded up five unexpected holiday party outfits to inspire you to celebrate the season in extra style!
Merry & Bright
Metallics are trending this season, and what better way to celebrate the holidays than by sparkling all night? Try mixing different tones and textures with your metallic pieces to create a unique look that will work for all your holiday parties.
Turn Up the Volume
Voluminous ruffles will make any outfit party-worthy! Don’t be afraid to mix two pieces that have ruffles, like Lauren does in this flouncy festive outfit!
Pretty, Pretty Prints
A fun print is an easy way to make a fashion statement! Beth’s velvet floral suit is amazing on it’s own, but pairing it with a statement takes it to next-level belle of the holiday ball status!

You can’t go wrong with velvet for the holidays, but instead of the wrap dress silhouette we’ve been seeing a lot lately, try a velvet maxi slip dress for versatility. Layer it with either a casual tee or a simple thin turtleneck for an easy yet chic party look.
Dress Up Your Denim
Don’t throw your denim aside just yet; there are plenty of ways to dress up your denim to make them party-worthy! The most effortless way to dress up your denim is to focus on your layering pieces or statement shoes and accessories.
While I love getting dressed for chilly fall weather, the frigid days of winter can become monotonous. There are only so many combinations of sweaters, skinny jeans, and jackets to rotate through before I get bored and uninspired. But dressing for cold temperatures doesn’t have to be boring. Be prepared this winter with a plan for style all season long.
Don’t let your style fall to the wayside when it gets cold. Create a winter capsule wardrobe to stay inspired! Take a look at five of my favorite trendy winter pieces that are a must-have for your capsule wardrobe this season!
A trend that’s been going strong all year, white boots look like they’ll be sticking around a little longer! Winter-white boots add instant chicness to an outfit and can be dressed up or down.
Baker Boy Cap
Keep your hair in place and up your cool factor with a trendy baker boy cap this season.
A turtleneck is a must-have for your cold weather wardrobe. Try a thin basic to layer with or a chunky sweater for those extra-cold days.
A long-sleeved maxi dress can be layered and dressed up or down. It’s the perfect fill-in when you’re stuck in a skinny jeans rut!
A fun statement coat can be thrown over any ordinary outfit to give it that extraordinary look.
Whether it rains often where you live or once in a blue moon, it’s always a good idea to be prepared with some practical (and cute!) rainy day outfits. Rainy day outfits don’t have to be limited to rain boots and puffer jackets; it’s possible to dress appropriately for the wet weather while still staying stylish. Think trench coats, ankle boots, cute hats, and layers to keep warm and dry!
Below are some of my favorite outfit inspirations for rainy day weather!
