Winter Weather Styles
It seems as though the seasons keep breezing by; with October coming to a close, winter is soon approaching. Personally, I love winter because you still experience the cozy feelings of fall, just with colder weather. In southern California, fall tends to be too warm for sweaters and jeans, but in the winter, we can finally get cozy and layer up!
Today I’ll be sharing some of my favorite winter styles. I’ve also mentioned little changes you can make to each outfit depending on your climate, so you can make every look practical and customized! It’s time to bring out your favorite sweaters, booties and get stylin’!
If you are having trouble picking out a winter outfit, just go for a simple neutral outfit. Black jeans, a cream sweater, and matching booties easily create a sophisticated look. You can also add a matching hat to continue the neutral theme or a bright hat for a little pop of color. I added a cream beret that matched my sweater. To keep this look interesting, I incorporated different textures and patterns. By mixing this chunky knit sweater with my snakeskin boots, this look has subtle details that ensure it isn’t a boring outfit. The key to creating a cute neutral look is using little details such as patterns, knits, and accessories to keep it interesting!
Style Tip - If you need another cozy layer, add on a black or blue jean jacket!
Sometimes when a new season arrives, you aren’t quite ready to part with your clothes from the past season. If you’re attached to your summer pieces or simply can’t buy a whole new wardrobe each season, this is the perfect look for you! Adapt your maxi dresses to cold weather by layering them over long sleeves! Add some booties for some more warmth and now you have a cute and stylish winter look. Since my dress has a deep v-neck, I chose to accessorize with some necklaces over my shirt.
Style Tip - If your dress doesn't have slits like mine, you can add tights underneath to keep your legs warmer.
Plaid is a classic winter pattern and makes for some cute miniskirts. I like wearing my black and white plaid skirt with this simple white cardigan from Plato’s Closet! Then, I simply add some white sneakers to complete a super casual and easy outfit for those warmer days.
Style Tip - Replace the cardigan with a chunky sweater, then add tights and boots for added warmth!
Heeled booties are one of my favorite parts of winter fashion because they make me taller and they’re super stylish! I paired these white booties, with this striped sweater and simple mom jeans, to give the outfit more of a 60s vibe. Then I finished the look off with a rectangular red bag to match the stripes in the sweater.
Hopefully, these looks gave you some outfit inspiration for the upcoming winter season!
