Winter Fashion (Even for Busy Days)

Winter Fashion Guide

If you’ve ever moved during the winter, you know that winter fashion can be tough to master, especially when you’re putting all your energy into ensuring all your coffee cups make it to your new place. Luckily, your winter fashion doesn’t have to die in favor of warmth and functionality. Here are a few smart style tips to get you through the chilliest season of the year:

7 Winter Fashion Tips to Keep You Cozy

Stay warm and look great by integrating these smart winter fashion tips into your wardrobe this year. The best part? They’re easy to do with items you already own!

1. Get Good at Layering

Layering serves two purposes: it keeps you warm (and allows you to adjust your outfit as you walk into or out of buildings) and looks great. This winter, don’t be afraid to layer up. Here’s an example: throw on a turtleneck, under a sweater, under a jacket, under a coat. It’s practical and also a smart way to play with textures, colors, and styles in your daily outfits. If the temperatures dip to a point where your standard layers won’t cut it, add a few layers of form-fitting, insulative items, like long johns and long-sleeve t-shirts.

2. Invest in a Great Hat

A hat, like boots, is an item you’ll wear all winter long. With this in mind, it’s smart to invest in a good one. Depending on what your unique style is, you’ll find a large selection of adorable hats to choose from. Brands like Ambler, for example, make beautiful hand-knit wool caps in a variety of vibrant colors.

You can also find styles accented with faux fur or a sleek bowler cap to keep your head warm and dry. The possibilities are endless!


3. Pile on the Scarves

Scarves are a fun and functional way to stay warm in the depths of winter. For maximum insulation, pile on a cozy cashmere or wool variety in a fun pattern. Once you take off your coat and settle into the warmth of the workplace, make it a stylish adaptation by unfolding the scarf and using it as a shawl or lap blanket.

4. Purchase Insulated Tights

Many brands make insulated or wool tights that allow you to wear your favorite dress, even when it’s chilly outside. Check out a brand like Smartwool, which makes a wide selection of insulated (and adorable) tights. Once you’ve found a pair you like, slap them on beneath your favorite dress, pull on your boots, add a sweater, coat, and hat, and you’re ready to step out in style.


5. Wear Gloves

Gloves are essential for keeping your hands warm and cozy, even when the weather outside is frightful. With this in mind, purchase a pair you like and keep them handy. Depending on your preference, you can purchase mittens (which keep your fingers together) or gloves, which have a separate finger for each digit. Look for cute, knit wool varieties or a sleek leather pair to facilitate your daily commute.

6. Purchase High-Quality Items

Here’s the thing about cold weather: it takes no prisoners. As such, cheap, synthetic materials won’t keep you as warm as you need to be. Instead, you should buy the highest-quality winter items you can afford. Technical materials like down, wool, and Goretex will insulate your body and keep you toasty, even when the temperatures dip down below zero. Plus, they’ll wear well, and you’ll have them for years to come.

7. Embrace the Power of Boots

Boots, like layers, are a practical way to make the most of winter fashion. This winter, invest in a great pair that are as comfortable as they are stylish. Depending on where you live, the following styles may work well:

  • Over-the-Knee Boots. Ideal for metro areas where the streets are likely plowed and shoveled, these boots look fierce and provide cozy warmth to your entire leg.
  • Duck Boots. Duck boots were popularized by iconic outdoor brands like LL Bean and designed for use in cold, coastal places like Maine. Opt for the classic “Bean Boots” for a functional, comfortable, cozy style that looks great with tights or cuffed jeans.
  • Muck Boots. Believe it or not, muck boots can be cute. Brands like Bogsmake adorable, printed varieties for both men and women. The best part? They’re warm enough to withstand temperatures of -15 degrees Fahrenheit.

As with any piece of clothing, be sure to care for your boots (regular cleaning and waterproofing) to ensure they continue to function well.
