1. Up your game with a statement coat.

When it comes to waving goodbye to the winter blues, nothing does the trick like a bold, colorful coat. Pair it with a warm, neutral-toned sweater or up the ante with an equally bright top to take your look to the fiercest level possible.

2. Keep calm and carry over your cropped pants.

Don’t leave your favorite cropped pants in the dust this winter! Perfectly paired with ankle boots or pumps, cropped pants can easily be carried over into the colder months. If you layer up wisely with a turtleneck and jacket, you’ll be covered up for the cold while still satisfying your cropped craving.

3. Take your look from day to night with all-purpose ankle boots.

We get it, you want to be on trend and not freeze your toes off! Ankle boots can be styled with nearly any outfit for any occasion depending on if you’re dressing up or having a casual night out on the town.

4. Pick a hat that pops on top.

Keepin' your noggin warm doesn’t mean having to surrender your personal style. Play with differently colored beanies and warm hats that pop you and your wardrobe out of the winter blues while sampling different textures to find a favorite combo.

5. Add a layer of style with tights or leggings.

So you’re standing in front of the mirror, weighing the pros and cons of a good ensemble, and you ask yourself: tights or leggings? While leggings offer versatility between formal and casual, tights bring extra patterns, colors, and prints to your wardrobe.

6. Care for your cashmere by giving it the hand-wash treatment.

Sweaters are certainly a comfy and stylish way to stay on point during the chilly months! Shelled out some cash for cashmere and don’t want to risk shrinkage? Hand-wash your sweaters with care and monitor your air-drying method to avoid shape distortion and unnecessary stretching!

7. Make a glistening impression with your accessories.

‘Tis is the season to shine, so don’t shy away from making a simple statement with your accessories. Mix it up with metals — layering different lengths of chains is an easy way to dress up a basic tee. Or stack in different spots — a chunky necklace paired with some bangles can really set a full-tonal outfit off.

8. Layer up without the added bulk.

Layering up doesn’t have to lead to looking bulky. Try pairing a long, draped cardigan over an equally long turtleneck sweater or even a long knit dress. Duster-length sweaters, cardigans, and coats are the perfect on-trend items to keep warm and stylish this season.

9. Take note that pastels are not just for spring.

Pack a punch with pastels all year round. Paired with darker colors, your winter wardrobe will still look weather-appropriate with these seasonless shades. Try adding a soft statement piece to your closet or accessorize with a blush tone to slip seamlessly into any season.

10. Make a statement with your scarf.

The quickest way to make any ensemble pop is to throw on a bold scarf. Whether it’s thin and bright or knitted and patterned, scarves serve as the perfect accent and functional accessory.

11. Style your knee-highs with a chic skirt.

Boots are literally the best part of winter fashion, TBH. Partner your fave pair with a stylish skirt — suede or button-front, for example — and you’re looking at your chicest and warmest winter wardrobe yet.

12. Experiment with printed layers.

The easiest way to stay warm and on trend is to stick a printed layer under your fave winter sweater. Whether striped, plaid, or polka-dotted, a whimsical button-up is the perfect solve for cold weather and fashion inspiration.
