Cold Weather Style Essentials

Admit it: it can be exhausting keeping up with the latest fashion trends. They change from season to season, year to year. Even the most dedicated fashionista needs some go-to staple items in her closet that will always be in style. Luckily, there are plenty of evergreen fall and winter clothes and accessories that will never go out of style. Read on for quick fashion inspiration that will last a lifetime!

Leather Jackets

Leather (or faux leather if prefer) jackets are enough to keep you warm during chilly breezes without weighing you down. A classic black leather jacket classes up any fall outfit, and don’t think you’re limited to black or brown! Try a deep burgundy jacket over a black dress for eye-popping color.

Anything Plaid

Plaid shirts, scarves, jackets, blazers, anything! There are so many colors and varieties of plaid designs that anyone can find something that works for them. A plaid button-up can be worn as-is or tied around the waist. No matter what you choose, it’s the perfect addition for your trip to the pumpkin patch, football game, or sleigh ride adventure.

Denim

Denim matches any clothing or accessories you have in your closet. Even if you are not a fan of a certain style of jeans, there are plenty of different options you can choose. Skinny jeans are great to wear when you want to show off your new tall boots or to pair with oversized sweaters. Boot-cut jeans allow you to wear your jeans over your boots without stepping on excess fabric. If you’re feeling rebellious, ripped jeans give you just the right balance of classy and sassy.

Boots

Whether you like sporting knee high or ankle boots, they are the perfect shoe to pair with your cold weather outfits. Plain black boots are perfect to throw on when you are rushing out of the door. Other neutral colors can help you coordinate a quick outfit without stress. Pair tall boots with skinny jeans for an equestrian look. Alternatively, wear ankle boots with a dress and tights for a night out on the town.

Cardigans

The perfect sweater for layering, cardigans can be thrown on over button-ups and T-shirts with ease. They can easily bring class to your work outfit or bring subtle fashion to your daily routine. Stock up on solid neutrals like black, grey and taupe for every day, and have a little fun with bright hues or simple patterns that reflect your personality.

Oversized Sweaters & Sweatshirts

The trick here is to make if look comfortably chic versus sloppy and too big. Oversized sweaters and sweatshirts should be paired with the right bottom to be pulled off correctly. Keep it simple! Wear these essentials with leggings and booties or pair them with thigh high boots and a printed scarf.
