Winter Fashion Tips that Will Never Go Out of Style
What you wear doesn’t define who you are but it does define how you feel sometimes. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on unnecessary froofy clothes either.
All of these items will keep you warm, looking stylish and feeling fashionable throughout the coldest months.
Trust me, we have between six and eight months of snow where I live. I know how to dress comfortably for it.

1. Show Stopping Boots
A great pair of boots will keep you warm and toasty, have a great sole to keep you from slipping on those slick winter days and look fantastic.
Investing in a good pair of boots (or two) will keep you looking great all season. Winter boots mean different styles depending on where you live.
I would love to wear a sleek pair of knee high leather boots all season, but those don’t really work in the deep snow of Colorado.
If you live in a warmer climate you can even experiment with ankle booties. (They are so damn cute !).
But, if you live anywhere where it gets slick, stick to flats or a low chunky heel with a grippy sole for the winter.
2. Layer with Scarves
This one is easy. You can knit them, buy them, get them at the second hand store (my favorite place to get deals on winter scarves).
For around three dollars a piece…I have a huge collection and the styles don’t change that much from year to year.
I love big chunky scarves and they get bonus points if they are a looped infinity style. Those are so versatile!
3. Accessorize with Gloves, Hats & Cool Bags
Gloves, hats and a nice bag make you look put together and ready to take on the world. Plus they keep you warm.
Beanies come in a ton of different styles. The Slouchy Beanie is my current favorite and massively popular on the ski slopes of Colorado. But I must confess, those fluffy faux fur hats are a close second. So cute!
I have to confess that I own a lot of hand bags. I invest in good quality and they last forever if you take care of them.
Depending on the climate you live in you can choose soft wool or sleek leather to keep your paws warm and if they compliment your bag…even better.
Layering clothing is the key to looking put together.
While we’re talking about hats…they do more for you in the winter than just keep your head warm. The cold months can wreak havoc on your hair. There are some great tips for taking care of your tresses here. Don’t wait until you start having a problem to implement these.
Fur is a trend that has been around for thousands of years. It’s not going anywhere.
Nowadays we look to faux fur to keep us warm and cozy but I am thinking that there must be some sort of evolutionary preference left over for this look because it’s huge.
5. Sleeveless Jackets
Remember the trick about layering? The sleeveless jacket looks great over a turtleneck and paired with a chunky scarf and boots.
Plus, these are much warmer than you think they are.
I love ponchos. They are perfect for running errands and shopping because they keep you warm without smothering you while you are busy running in and out of shops, grocery stores, the post office, etc.
You won’t be hassled taking it off and putting it back on every few minutes. Big bonus, they cover the winter pooch belly that I manage to pick up every year.
These are comfortable and will make you feel artsy.
7. Boot Cuffs
These are adorable, but before you say they are unnecessary froof…just try them. They keep your legs warmer in skinny jeans and leggings and they are adorable with knee high boots.
8. Leggings & Skinny Jeans
Of course I have to talk about these now. They are a staple in any wardrobe.
Not only are the stretchy and comfy but are super versatile in the winter. Wear them with long knitted sweaters or cardigans and boots for a classic look that never seems to get old.
9. Turtle Necks
Everyone looks great in a well fitted turtle neck. It frames the face like nothing else. Wear it with a scarf or wrap if you are self conscientious about your belly. It works like a charm.
In the end it’s important to wear what make you comfortable and makes you happy. We all have to find our own styles but I think it’s fun to experiment and evolve too!
