Most people out there dread the winter season. They look at the daylight charts and fret about the long nights coming ahead.
But let me tell you a fact – just ‘cause it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to hibernate beneath the covers for the entire season.
Instead, embrace the chilly season.
Get up and try looking your best.
There is no better time to take your layering game to a whole new level. Wrap yourself in comfortable scarves and flaunt those fuzzy slippers. It is the season to finally get those boots out and pretend like you are walking on the clouds. The way a hat covers up for you on a bad hair day and a jacket feels like a sleeping bag makes you happy about yourself.
So, while summer lets you spice up your look with long loose hair and coral lipstick, winter is the complete opposite. It is like a little kid, innocent, and dressed for warmth.
In case you are looking to try out some fresh look this season, here is our detailed guide on the hottest winter looks. From the neutral color combos to the bright shades – there is something for everyone. Dive in to check it out:
Bright Pop Color Suits
Monochromatic looks made a comeback the past couple of years and have turned into a major fashion trend. This season, however, calls for bright pop-up suits in colors you wouldn’t dare to pull off. Be it yellow, red, orange, bright green, or an intense blue shade.
The bright colors are what you need to break the shackles of ordinary colors and make a loud fashion statement. An oversized pantsuit in punchy hues will surely attract the eyeballs as you waltz across the street.
Being the attention center, once in a while, isn’t so bad after all, right?
You can break this look’s edginess by adding light accessories like tonal boots, gold-plated jewelry, or a clutch.
Brown Leather Coats
A black leather jacket has always been the classic cool when it comes to winter style. This year, however, the street style from fashion introduces a new color family.
Shades of brown have become the ultimate desirable neutrals since 2020. The color has proven its relevance and staying power as it passes into the new year with the same popularity.
Thus, now is the best time to invest in a brown leather jacket for yourself. Make sure you keep the rest of your outfit simple with pastel colors. On top of it, you can choose either oversized blazers or custom leather jackets, from affordable faux patents to real leathers.
All-over Natural Tones
Simple, solid-colored pieces in soft-earthly tones are all in rage this season. The favorite neutrals of 2020 include soft grays, browns, muted pastel purples, and greens. One can easily pull-off these monochromatic natural outfits as it looks great on everyone.
You can either go for a boilersuit to a turtleneck, a leather jacket, or a sandy-colored suit. Don’t hesitate to try out different shades and styles in the same earthly color family. You can go sand, marigold, or even camel.
The options of natural colors are endless. And you end up looking like a goddess with minimal effort.
Quilted jackets come in many different forms. Most of them are like bomber jackets that are shiny like leather. The fashion world presumes the trend of quilted jackets to transmit in the new year as it appeals to all our hibernating instincts.
To avoid twinning with your bedroom covers, I suggest you play with quilted separates in neutral or primary colors. For example, you can wear a green quilted jacket with a white button-up shirt and skinny black jeans. Pair it up with black loafers to maintain an overall casual theme.
Cobalt Blue styled with turquoise
Match cobalt blue with turquoise, and you will have a powerful color match. Try carrying it with style and elegance in whatever type you pick. You don’t need to break the loud vibe by pairing with any natural colors like cream or white. These combinations look incredible with gold or silver jewelry, making a versatile partnership.
For example, a regal blue dress coupled with turquoise shoes will make you look pitch-perfect, no matter what the occasion is. Pair it with a statement necklace, and you are all set to dance the night away in the most stylish way possible.
Yellow Overcoats/Trench Coats
Yellow is a bold and bright choice. It will surely turn a few heads as you pass by.
You can go for a yellow overcoat or a trench coat. A yellow overcoat will typically fall somewhere between your hip or ankle. There are different style options available, such as belt, open-front, A-line, cocoon-shaped, tailored, and so much more.
Trench coats are typically a chic-over layer, which is quite useful in the cool months. The best part about a yellow trench coat is that it goes well with all styles and colors. One can easily rock the look with basics like a white turtleneck and brown boots.
I also recommend you to up your overall looks game by studying the winter hair trends. The idea is to give you a fresh and complete appearance.
This winter, you can freely choose any animal print you want. It makes you feel warm as the temps keep falling. Simultaneously, wearing animal prints is also quite empowering, as it allows you to show off your inner wildness.
The funky and fresh animal prints match well with different monochromes. A cheetah print, for example, goes quite well with a buttoned-up black shirt and blue jeans.
While you are on the mission to add a couple of animal prints in your wardrobe, beware of some rules:
- Always put on a single piece of animal print at a time
- Buy quality pieces
- Keep your accessories tasteful and minimal
Having a little fun with your wardrobe isn’t so bad if you know how to do it the right way. Those patterned shoes and jackets are a smart option if you don’t want to spend hours fixating over what to wear each morning.
Velvet is one comfortable material and adds instant glamor to your outfit. The material is back, and it is more fluid than ever before. From Prada to Preen, all designers showcased velvet dresses on the runway, in different styles and shades. The fabric has a rich texture, making it trendy and apt for all seasons.
The basic rule is not to overwhelm your look when you put on the velvet. Pair your dress with an elegant and sleek cashmere scarf to stay cozy during winters. Or you can dress down during the day by pairing your velvet dress with a blazer or a leather jacket.
Pick solid colors like blues, greens, and mustard tones to keep it chic.
If you are still iffy about choosing velvet, take the plunge by using a few velvet accessories like a scarf, a handbag, or a headband.
Looking at your best during winters is not an easy feat. Some days all you yearn for is to snuggle beneath the covers and have a hot chocolate while watching your favorite shows. Throwing away the blanket and dressing up seems like drudgery.
I hope the shades and styles listed above will help you churn away those lazy thoughts. Tweak your wardrobe a little and rock the trends this fall!
