Staying Fashionable During the Winter

The weather bows to no one, even when it comes to fashion. If you live in a part of the country that regularly gets hit with snow, wind, slush, and freezing temperature, you know the pain of having to put away some of your favorite pieces when those winter months hit. However, there are ways to stay on top of the fashion game when it comes to cold weather.

  1. Invest in a Winter Coat you Love: There’s nothing better than pulling out your favorite trench coat and getting to wear it for the first time in months. If you have a great coat you love, you’re covered everyday during the winter. If you find one you love, but it isn’t the warmest, don’t forget you can layer underneath.

  2. More Layers Equals More Style Opportunities: Wearing layers doesn’t mean you’ll look bulky. Remember to get creative with it, and try layering fun tops with textured sweater that will keep you both warm and stylish. Beanies and scarves are also cute accessories to pair with any outfit during chilly weather.

  3. Be Prepared: Instead of running around looking for your favorite winter accessories the same day a snow storm hits, grab everything out of storage and organize it beforehand. This will ensure no late mornings, and if you need to replace any of your favorite pieces, you have time to do so.

  4. Check the Weather: This may seem obvious, but planning around the weather can help you plan your outfits for the week. Looking like snow? Grab your favorite pair of warm boots. Expecting a cold, but sunny day? Get out your mittens and wear a pair of your favorite shoes that might not be the best in snow so you still get the chance to wear them.

  5. Have Fun with Your Accessories: Adding a bright pop of color or fur with your scarf, hat, or pair of mittens can elevate any outfit from drab to fab, and you may even forget about the cold weather, even if it’s only for a little bit. Just because the weather is dreary doesn’t mean your outfit has to be, so remember to have some fun with it!
