When it comes to summer, autumn, and spring, there are so many outfit possibilities, from chunky brown knitted sweaters to flowy summer dresses, but what about winter? Winter doesn’t exactly get the best reputation when it comes to winter fashion. Sure, if you search on Pinterest, you’re going to find plenty of adorable outfits, but then you need to keep the temperature in mind, the wind chill, the weather, and so on. So there’s a lot of considerations. 

But with that said, no matter how cold it gets in the winter, whether the weather is snowy, icy, wet, dry, and so on. While yes, sometimes it can feel like a challenge to dress stylishly and comfortably but it’s possible. So, here's what you can do to have that balance between dressing up in style while still staying warm. So, here’s what you need to know!

Invest in Quality Outwear

Your choice of outerwear is paramount to staying warm and stylish during winter. You’re going to want to look for a well-insulated, versatile coat or jacket that complements your personal style. Consider classic options like wool pea coats, trench coats, or puffer jackets, which offer both warmth and timeless appeal. Quality outerwear is an investment that can elevate any winter outfit. 

Also, you may want to have several coats; when it comes to winter, sometimes it’s so cold that you need to dress up to the point where you feel like a marshmallow, and other times, just a thick coat with thin layers will do. So be sure to be cautious on what you pick. 

It’s All About the Layers

Layering is the secret weapon for maintaining warmth and style. Layers are never going to go away, and layering is always going to be a major component when it comes to style. This could be wearing thermal wear with a cute cardigan on top or even something simple like a button-up top with a sweater layered on top. These are timeless, and you’re always able to count on staying warm- plus, it’s easy to manage if you’re going to be both indoors and outdoors throughout the day. 

Accessories are Everything

As you most likely know, the accessories you chose can dress up an outfit or even dress it down. Most likely, winter is going to be the most accessory-heavy time of the year. Just think about it: hats, scarves, and there are even stylish thermal gloves for women that can take your whole outfit up another notch.  So just embrace the amount of accessories you can wear because it’s not as stylish to be accessory-heavy during any other season. 

Mix Textures and Fabrics

As stated above, accessories are one of the only things that are more than welcome during the winter; you can over-accessorize, and it’s deemed to be okay. It’s similar to mixing up textures and fabrics. While mixing is always great, during winter, you can take it up another notch, and it’s considered super stylish. Adding texture to your winter outfits is a surefire way to stand out. Mix fabrics like leather, faux fur, suede, and wool to create visual interest. For example, pairing a leather jacket with a faux fur collar and suede boots can elevate your winter ensemble to a new level of sophistication.
