Chilly times are ahead as the winter season arrives but what better way to welcome the cold than stepping out of your house and strutting down the street with flair. Let us begin counting down the 12 ways to stay stylish in the cold.
#1 LEATHER WEATHER
Leather is an oldie but goodie on the list of winter wardrobe essentials and a staple that keeps you warm and trendy for years, given its durability.
Women can easily rock the biker jackets, trench coats and boots to add a little edginess to their outfit and to add a bit of glamour, rock a leather jacket with some fur or shearling. If you’re for animal anti-cruelty, faux leather and fur give you just the same look.
#2 FLUFFY WINTERS
Fur is known for keeping you warm, cosy and chic all at the same time. Make bold statements with massive fur coats and accentuate your evening attire with furry sandal heels.
#3 A FERAL OCCASION
Going into the wild that is the cold has been made more fashionable with the comeback of animal print. Leopard, snake and zebra print jackets and trousers are great pieces to have in your closet this winter.
#4 VELVETY LUXE
Velvet makes almost any outfit look more classic and elegant. Women can grab a pair of velvet knee high boots or a velvet dress and men can rock a velvet bomber jacket.
#5 RETRO BIJOU
90’s fashion has been revived with the addition of chokers to the list of essential women’s accessories. Add a bit of pizzazz to an outfit with a velvet, lace, metallic, leather or diamond choker.
#6 THE PUFFY STUFF
Designed for extremely cold weather, quilted jackets are the perfect, fashionable outerwear for this winter’s hustle and bustle.
#7 SWEATER WEATHER
Something new and different to add to your winter wardrobe are extra-long sleeve sweaters which would lend a simple and comfortable look as you dress for a casual yet stylish affair.
#8 ICY SHEEN
Glisten in the cold with metallics this winter. Women can give their outfit a pop of glitz with a gold or silver metallic dress or top and men can stand out in a crowd with a metallic bomber jacket.
#9 ARCTIC ARMY
Give your winter apparel a unique twist, army style. Military style jackets adorned with brass buttons and epaulets add elegance and allow your ensemble to look regal and elegant.
#10 WINTER ATHLEISURE
Dressing sporty in the winter is a great way to look laid-back yet trendy with simple over-sized hoodies, sweatpants with vertical stripes, bombers and sneakers.
#11 SILKEN STYLE
The silk and satin trend is everywhere and is the perfect way to achieve a soft and feminine look. Pair a satin slip dress or blouse with a pair of boots or rock a silk skinny scarf this winter and you will look graceful and exquisite.
#12 DENIM CRAZE
Denim takes the last spot on the list of ways to stay stylish in the cold. Style your denim jacket or jeans with embroidered mash-up patches or distressed details. It can be a fun DIY project or you can simply shop the trend.
