You know what I hate? When you open an article that promises to show you stylish cold weather winter outfit ideas, and you look at the photos, and you’re like, “I would be freezing!!” I’m sorry, but a thin little slip dress isn’t 10x warmer just because you added socks. Have you experienced that too, babes? I mean, sure, winter is a tough season to dress for, but there <em>are</em> ways to be warm and look stylish at the same time. These are the pieces I have in my winter wardrobe that I absolutely love. Some are new this year, others are staples I’ve been bringing back year after year.
This cozy coat will keep you warm, and add a stylish element to any outfit. I’ve been wearing it nonstop, open with lighter layers on days that aren’t 30 degrees, and zipped up with sweaters peeking out on those days when it’s freezing.
This is a basic that will be the foundation for all of your winter outfits. They’re great on their own, but layer them under sweaters, that fun off-the-shoulder top you rocked during summer, or sleeveless dresses. I love Uniqlo’s Heat Tech turtlenecks because they’re the perfect weight for layering and somehow work with your body to generate and retain heat. I’ve got one in black, cream, and navy stripes.
OTK boots make wearing skirts and dresses bearable during the winter. They’re also just as chic with jeans or leggings. The boots pictured here are Steve Madden, and they’re crazy comfortable.
Top any outfit with a cuddly oversized plaid scarf. It’s classic, so you’ll never have to worry about it going out of style. This one is A New Day from Target.
Ear muffs are super warm, and with faux fur and velvet details, they look super luxe.
Trust me, this is what you’re gonna pull out of your closet the most this winter because you can top any outfit with it for extra warmth. Get it in a neutral color (yes, that includes millennial pink!), so you can wear it with everything.
Swap out your beanie for a beret, which is one of this season’s hottest trends. It makes everything look effortlessly French-girl chic.
These step up the class-factor on any outfit. I love wearing it for dressier occasions, but I also like the contrast of wearing it with ripped jeans and sneakers.
