When life gets busy in winter, not just any outfit will do. You need something that’s going to keep you comfortable and warm throughout the day. Creating a look for the cold that still feels stylish is not always easy, especially when bulking up becomes necessary. Buried under all those layers, you may feel as if your sense of style is too. The good news is that there are ways to feel confident while staying comfortable in the cold. From home to work, and everywhere in between, we’ve got an outfit to keep you cozy and chic.
The relaxed, elasticized fit of your favorite sweatpants is perfect for days when comfort is key, but they don’t have to be just for lounging. Add a few styling touches here and there, and it’s possible to live in your favorite sweatpants all winter long. Keep it simple in classic fleece, or choose corduroy for a 70s throwback. The variety of styles and designs available make it easy to find your best fit.
For a look that’s casual yet chic, pair your sweatpants with a cozy jacket and a great pair of boots. It’s an easy outfit to throw on over your workout clothes when you’re heading to the gym before or after work. If you’ve got evening plans, add a designer bag and a few pieces of elegant jewelry. For an unexpected look that's still polished, swap out the boots for a pair of heels.
If you ever get tired of wearing neutrals and darks in the winter, flannel shirts are a fun way to add color to your cold-weather outfits. Whether you’re updating your current flannel shirt collection, or just getting it started, it’s a great investment piece that will serve you all year long. Vibrant designs offer endless ways to mix and match, while soft cottons provide all-day comfort and warmth.
A flannel shirt paired with a colorful coat is an easy, versatile winter look that’s casual yet chic. Throw it on with a pair of black jeans and booties, and you'll be all set to take on the day. Pick out your favorite shades from the pattern to match with different outerwear and accessories. For an extra layer of warmth, wear a camisole or thermal T-shirt underneath.
Whether you’re just starting your tunic collection, or looking to expand it, this versatile layering piece will be a welcome addition to your winter wardrobe. Tunics come in many different colors and styles that you can wear in a variety of ways. An extra-long tunic is the perfect piece to pair with leggings, jeggings, or jeans. A long-sleeve tunic in cotton or fleece will keep you warm and toasty in cold weather.
For a casual, sophisticated look that can take you from day to night, wear your tunic over warm leggings with a fleece vest and knee boots. If the weather takes a turn, it’ll be easy to swap out the latter for snow booties. This is an outfit that works really well with heels, too. Add a piece of statement jewelry and your favorite evening bag, and you’ll be set for dressier events.
The idea of wearing a dress when it’s freezing outside shouldn’t send you chills. There are many easy ways to style women’s dresses for the winter months and stay warm. Get the most out of your summer favorites by layering them over leggings and long-sleeve tops, or update your winter wardrobe with new long-sleeve, button-down, and sweater designs. No matter the time of year, you can look and feel your best in a dress.
The key to keeping warm is to focus on layers. For a clean, sophisticated look, wear a patterned maxi dress over a turtleneck in a solid, complementary color. Add a matching, chunky cardigan or open sweater, long boots, and a pair of tights for extra warmth. Tie the whole look together with a belt at the waist. It will create an elegant A-line silhouette that flatters every figure. For a more casual take, swap out the chunky cardigan for a pullover sweater and wear it with sneakers or ankle boots.
When it comes to layering, nothing offers more possibilities than a classic turtleneck shirt. It looks fantastic paired with a half-zip pullover sweater, longline cardigan, or tailored blazer. You can also throw it over a T-shirt or thermal, wear it under your favorite jumpsuit and overalls, or layer it with a denim or sports jacket. Choose a slim fit for a defined silhouette, or go slightly oversized for a more laidback look.
For an effortlessly chic look that’s still comfortable, wear your favorite turtleneck tucked into wide-leg pants or tailored trousers. Pair it with a tailored coat, sneakers, a baseball cap, and a chunky knit scarf for a cozy, morning commute. Heading out after work? Swap out the sneakers for heeled boots and add a tailored jacket to polish it off.
