Getting dressed in the dead of winter is no easy feat when the aim is to stay warm and look cool. Yet we often click through our favorite style blogs only to realize that it is possible, as evidenced by the scores of stylish ladies who manage to appear seasonally appropriate and chic on a daily basis.
Here are few trends to follow this season.
Helena Glazer, Brooklyn Blonde
“Jazz up a neutral outfit with some pops of color from accessories, like your shoes or hat.”
Bianca deBardelaben, Avant Blargh
“Don’t always opt for a [standard] collar under your favorite sweaters. A turtleneck can add an unexpected and classic twist that screams Marylin Monroe meets Annie Hall! Plus, it will keep you extra warm.”
Nadia Sarwar, Frou Frouu
“Step it up against the cold this season and pop a beanie under your fedora. It’s allowed!”
“Add structure and shape to a waistless coat by adding a belt over the top of your outerwear. It’s an instant update to the silhouette, and quickly transforms your coat from bag lady to sophisticate. When you head inside, just roll the belt tightly inside one of your coat pockets!”
“In winter, I wear several layers! There are two major rules: The first one is to wear a legging under your tights (it darkens the tights and—against all odds—makes your legs look thinner), and the second rule is to wear an oversized shirt or cardigan under a coat or jacket.”
Jessica R., Hapa Time
“Throw on a (faux) fur lined coat over your shoulders for easy warmth and instant glamour.”
