With the warmer months on their way out, things are starting to turn cozy. Fall flavors are in full swing, and the comfy sweatpants and fluffy blankets are starting to be pulled out of their hiding places.
But perhaps the most exciting part of this is the onset of winter fashion. There’s nothing quite like the art of layering, showing off stunning coats, and the opportunity to wear boots to every occasion. Not feeling prepared? Don’t stress – we have some tips to help you stay on trend when you can’t rely on the ease of a sundress.
1. Choose Versatile Outerwear
If you’re even slightly interested in women’s fashion clothing, you know that opting for versatile jackets, coats, and sweaters is the key to winning your wardrobe. This part of your wardrobe should consist of higher-quality, investment pieces that you can use for years and years.
That being said, it’s important to choose items that will outlast the trends and be versatile enough to pair with just about any other items you decide to purchase over the years. Going for simple, classic styles and neutral colors will bode well for the longevity of your coats and jackets.
2. Embrace Layering
However, that doesn’t mean that all of your inter wardrobe needs to be simple, classic, and neutral! Layering in the winter allows you to embrace cute, seasonal trends without compromising on your more sustainable pieces.
Pair a trendy cropped sweater and platform boots with your classic winter coat, and you’ll have a look to be proud of. Layering is a great way to blend styles, create an interesting look, and, most importantly, keep warm! Insulating with tight-fitting turtlenecks and putting a chunky sweater over them will look lovely and feel even better.
3. Incorporate Seasonal Colors and Patterns
One of the easiest ways to stay on trend without compromising on your personal style is by playing around with trendy colors and patterns, which are typically abundant in the fall and winter seasons!
Check out some old-season color trends and see how you like what’s hot (or cold) right now. You could go bold by purchasing sweaters or even trousers in these trendy shades, or keep things more subtle by introducing these colors in a scarf or other accessories.
4. Choose Sustainable Winter Fashion
Another important consideration when it comes to long-lasting clothes and building a winter wardrobe you can love for years is sustainability.
Try to opt for more sustainable brands and materials that are either recycled or longer lasting. Fast fashion is disposable because the materials used aren’t built to last. More sustainable materials will hang around in your closet for years to come.
5. Create a Capsule Wardrobe
One of the latest (and greatest) trends in the fashion industry is the concept of the capsule wardrobe.
This is another sustainable trend that we love because it focuses on building a wardrobe full of simple pieces that all work together and can be mixed and matched to create gorgeous and unique looks that will keep you warm and on-trend.
