Just because the weather is getting drab, doesn't mean your style has to. Staying warm no longer has to mean covering your favorite outfits with a huge puffy coat or forgetting you have a fashion sense until April. To keep your style going strong through the winter, try these fashion items that will keep you warm and stylish.
FLEECE LINED TIGHTS
Tights are the simplest way to turn a fall outfit into a winter go-to. Pick up a pair of tights that have a fleece liner for added warmth—the extra material will keep your legs warm even in the chilliest weather, but won't make you look bulky. Pair them with your favorite dress, underneath pants for really cold days, or layer with socks for extra creativity. Everyone should have a simple black pair in their closet, but you can also get creative with colors, cable knit, and more.
BOOTS WITH HIDDEN WARMTH
When the temps drop, you can't just put on any normal boot and expect your toes not to feel it. Instead of putting on 5 pairs of socks (we've been there), consider investing in a pair of boots with hidden warmth inside. We're loving this pair—lined with leather, suede, and sheepskin, these boots will keep you warm all winter long.
In our opinion, the best thing about winter is that messy hair can easily be covered with a great hat. But beyond that, if you pick a stylish hat you love, you can also use them to instantly enhance a simple outfit. This year, we're loving creative beanies. Try an embellished one for added flavor, a pommed style for an instant chic feel, or get super warm with a faux fur or cashmere option. Whatever you choose, you'll never have a bad hair day again--until summertime.
Adding a scarf to your outfit is a great way to insert style, but a blanket scarf is the go-to move when you need warmth, too. The extra fabric and oversized feel will keep you warm, and the style will keep you feeling trendy. Pair a striped flannel scarf with an all-black outfit (so simple, right?) or add some color to your outfit with a cheetah-print style.
