6 Winter Fashions
The seasons are changing, which means it’s time to start planning your winter wardrobe. Winter is a great season for style. You can layer up, explore multiple textures and wear the longer or heavier pieces you wouldn’t don in warmer weather. Nab these six winter must haves now!
Blazers have always been stylish. This year, they’re more popular than ever, especially in the rolled-sleeve, boys’-prep-school style that you’ll see everywhere this winter. Pair your cute blazer with jeans and a tee to upgrade a casual, classic look.
Skinny, Colored Pants
Whether we’re talking denim, twill or corduroy, the slim, vividly-hued pant is tops for winter. What better time of year for a cheery pop of color amidst more basic neutrals like black, brown and gray? Right now you can find skinny pants in every color of the rainbow and beyond, from royal blue to pastel pink. You’re sure to find the color, fabric and fit that work great with your winter sweaters, long-sleeved tees and cozy jackets.
This cute shoe-boot combination is still going strong on the fashion scene, and is the perfect complement to other winter pieces. More modern than classic riding or cowboy boots, ankle-height boots look great with pants or skirts and dresses. Throw them on over tights or leggings, or tuck your skinny jeans or trousers into them. Either way, you’ll be ready to face winter in style.
This seemingly simple accessory gives you a lot of fashion mileage. Use belts of all shapes and styles to completely change the look of an outfit: cinch a tunic or long cardigan, show off your waistline–or help create the illusion of one–with a tucked-in button-up shirt, even shorten a shift dress by belting it and creating a bloused effect on top. This is one classic piece that can dress up your other winter items and definitely still be used during the other three seasons as well.
Colorblock Maxi Dresses
Color blocked clothes are hugely popular right now. You’ve seen this trend on sweaters and dresses. Well, combine color blocking with a maxi dress and you’ve got a real style star. Sure, maxis were popular in spring and summer, but they work great for winter, too. Maxi dresses keep you warm in cool weather; layer tights or leggings underneath if it’s really cold.
Cheerful Mixed Prints
Printed fabrics are everywhere right now, and transition well into winter with their bright colors and cheerful vibe. Look for brightly printed tops, dresses and even–for the more fashion-daring–pants and jeans. Liven up your winter days with fashion-forward mixes of prints in similar colors and sizes for a unique look.
