With that winter chill in full force, the only way to survive the cold during these winter months is by layering. The act of layering is synonymous with the season. Although it may seem like a chore when you’re getting dressed to brave the cold, consider layering as a thought-out part of your style routine instead and you’ll be sure to take your winter style to the next level! I’ve outlined 5 simple tips below that will ensure that you’re a layering master this winter season.
Start with a Stylish Base
Hoodie & Jacket Combo
It’s All in The Accessories
Blanket scarves, pom-pom beanies, printed gloves; no matter what you choose to top off your cozy fit, you’ll be sure to be bundled to the max! Be bold and try something in a vibrant hue or even a trendy leopard print!
Opt for a Vest
Double Up on Sweaters
As crazy as it seems, the holidays are already right around the corner again! Whether you’re style is more classic chic or if you verge more on the statement-making side of things, one thing is for certain, holiday parties are a blast and getting dressed up for such festivities is all a part of the fun as well! There is no reason to hold back with your style this time of year, as the holidays are for bold, eye-catching looks with a hint of glamour! I’ve rounded up five trendy styles that will surely pull together your holiday looks just in time for a night out celebrating!
Silk Slip Dress
Just because the weather is drab, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be. Jewel tones will liven up your winter wardrobe and compliment the natural neutral tones that we tend to gravitate towards during the colder months. Add some depth and color to your cold-weather wardrobe with vibrant jewel colors this season to avoid a stale winter style slump.
A Ruby Red Statement Piece
Refresh Your Wardrobe with Emerald
Bold Blue Sapphire
Blue has a calming, relaxing association and I can’t be the only one who could benefit from a little extra relaxation during the holidays. This is the perfect color to try in different textures and fabrics, like crushed velvet.
Golden Citrine Yellow Will Brighten Your Day
Adding Warmth with Amethyst
It’s never too early to start planning your holiday outfits. The holiday season can be stressful for so many reasons, and one of them shouldn’t be as trivial as what you’re going to wear to spend time with your family and friends. Whether you travel, go big or small, or simply spend a little extra time with loved ones, take away the stress of getting dressed out of your holiday plans so you can focus on what is really important during the season. Take a look at 5 trends for the upcoming holiday season and start planning your outfits now.
A holiday staple, you can never go wrong with velvet in any form.
Downplay the excessive manner of sequins by finding an understated sequin piece, an otherwise simple blouse, or even an accessory and pair it with basics to complete your outfit.
Sweater vests, sweater midi dresses with boots, and statement sleeves on a chunky knit paired with denim and heels are easy and a comfortable go-to for casual get togethers.
A Midi Slip Dress/Skit
Dress it up, wear it casually, layer it with knits or leather; there’s no denying that a midi slip dress/skirt is one of the most versatile pieces in your closet for any occasion.
Leather or Leather Accents
Add an edgy touch to your holiday outfits with leather. For a more formal look, try a leather midi skirt paired with a silk blouse. For a casual vibe, try leather trousers and a chunky knit.
The art of the treasure hunt is being open to any find at any time, while maintaining a greater perspective of items you’re hoping to score. That’s the thrill for me at least. I’m always looking for luxury textiles when I’m at Crossroads. Silks, cashmere, & luxury items pull me first. Sweaters are an absolute great item to peruse at any Crossroads.
I picked up this crimson beauty in Studio City. I’m crazy about a super soft and cozy sweater that gives a pop of color to the grayer skies of colder weather. This one boasts side slits – another super favorite fashion feature – so it’s ultra-easy to wear and lends itself very well to 501’s, another fave. Plus, it’s 90% merino // 10% cashmere.
Are you a sweater person? How do you like them? Fitted? Turtleneck? Ultra Chunky? Cropped? Oversize? Or ALL of the sweaters (like me)?
