15 Incredibly Chic Winter Outfit Ideas
All the inspiration, all the snuggles
OK, so you've prepped your snow-boot game and you've considered a punchy new hat. But single pieces can take you only so far. There are 90+ days of chilly temps ahead of us, and you need a cheat sheet of playful combinations to put together this winter. Let's get styling.
Mix Patterns, Lots of Them
Plaid, stripes, leopard...more plaid. You can't go wrong.
Pair Faux Fur with Soft Fabrics
That new teddy-bear vest you've been eyeing? Top it over loose silks and rayons (be that pants or a dress).
Endorse Fuzzy Accents
Li'l furry pom-poms are everywhere right now. When you're taking one out for a spin, let it be the focus of the outfit. Don't compete with too many other colors.
Make an Impact with a Pop of Red
A single, solid statement is always a good idea.
If You’re Doing Snow Boots, Keep It Simple
When the weather requires you no other shoe option but all-terrain clompers, go easy on the rest of your look.
This is the easiest way to look instantly chic. (And means you can have seconds at dinner.)
Nestle in an Accent Skirt
For days when you're looking to break up the typical blacks and browns, sneak in a refreshing printed skirt (preferably of the floral variety).
Keep Shapes and Lengths in Mind
Pair a tough-to-wear midi skirt with a shorter coat. Your ankles (and baller heels) are officially the star of the show.
Let Blue Work in Unexpected Ways
Nothing punches up a conservative outfit like cobalt blue.
Couple Sweaters with Tough Moto Jackets
Layer the street-chic way. (And flip your cuffs for bonus style cred.)
Pair Flight Jackets with Mens-Inspired Shirts
The idea here is to vary your colors and textures to keep from looking bulky.
Style Your Boyfriend Jeans with Little Details
Kerchiefs? Mini cross-body bags? Stacked rings? This is where they belong--with your slouchy, distressed denim.
Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously
All this said, wear whatever the hell you want--even if it means slightly resembling a Muppet.
