December 4th, 2019 by Jennifer Beile How to Stay Warm and Stylish This Winter

It’s the time of year where the cold, frigid weather can get the best of us and we either bundle up to the point of no recognition of our true stylish selves or we decide to rebel against the elements and dress for style without keeping the weather in mind and sacrifice comfort in favor of fashion. Whether you are dressing for work, a night out, or a casual weekend, there are ways to dress warm AND stylish this winter season and all the simple tips are below!

Cover Your Basics

Make sure and have your basic winter pieces in full stock at the first sign of the temperatures dropping: those perfectly flattering jeans, a neutral sweater, a basic go-to coat, and a base layer like a thin turtleneck for layering. All these pieces can be used to fall back on in case of the lack of inspiration or can be mixed and matched with statement pieces throughout the season.

Outerwear Doesn’t Have to be Boring

Invest in a few coats to rotate throughout the season so that you have that go-to coat for any occasion without getting bored.

Layers Are Key

The most obvious and most important, layers build and keep in warmth. Look for quality layering pieces that enhance your outfit rather than drown you in clothing.

Don’t Underestimate Footwear

Stocking up on a few versatile pair of boots is essential for a winter wardrobe that will keep you warm without sacrificing style.

Accessories Make All the Difference

Hats, gloves, and scarves are simple ways to complete your outfit without adding too much bulk or layers if you’re simply looking for a little more warmth during your commute or running errands.
