As the weather gets colder, you won’t be able to make it to spring with just a stylish coat and a big sweater. When you dress right for the winter, going outside feels just as warm as staying inside. To stay warm and stylish in the winter, you need a warm but stylish coat, boots that can handle the weather and a warm hat or scarf to top it all off. Despite what many people think or what old sayings say, fashion doesn’t have to break the bank. I put together a list of winter accessories to help you have the coziest winter yet. These will get you through the cold months in style.
1. Teddy Coat
The Teddy Coat is a classic outerwear item that is perfect for layering and will keep you warm and dry all winter long. A teddy jacket is popular for a simple reason: The style goes with almost everything in your fall wardrobe, like sweatpants, black leggings, high-rise jeans, and knee-high boots. Just imagine being hugged by a plush teddy bear every time you wear this faux fur coat.
2. Furry Earmuffs
In addition to real fur, faux fur is a common accent this winter. The fuzzy ear muff is the coolest new winter item because it combines two other trends: earmuffs and furry details. The earmuff is the most stunning winter innovation. These fluffy muffs will keep your ears warm and will also make a fashion statement. Many people try not to wear hats in the winter so they can show off their hair. Earmuffs are such a great alternative.
3. Hand Warmers
No more putting your hands in your jacket pockets to keep them warm. A good pair of gloves will keep your hands warm all winter. Whether you stick to neutral colors or try out the space-dye trend, look for options that are lined with thick wool, cashmere or classic leather that won’t let a chill in.
4. Classic Scarves
Scarves can also be a fun way to add style to your winter outfit. With these cute cold-weather accessories, you can change your whole look with just one tie (or wrap if your go an infinity style), and it won’t cost you much. You can’t go wrong with a winter scarf that can be worn in many ways. A trendy, extra large checkered scarf is a must-have cold weather accessory. Go for either a bright statement wrap or a gorgeous fringed number. Scarves are the greatest accessory to own for the wintertime.
5. Winter Socks and Tights
Inner layers are just as important as outer layers. Check the small print on socks to make sure they will keep your toes warm in every kind of winter shoe. If your toes are cold, it won’t matter how good your base layer or boots are. You’ll be heading inside as soon as possible. When you step outside, you can wear your socks with ankle boots and look like you’re sporting a pair of gorgeous long legs boots. These styles pair nicely with a sweater dress if you are brave enough to wear skirts in the cold.
Winter tights are another option. For holiday parties, you’ll have a lot of glittery and patterned tights to choose from, but the best ones will keep you warm. Details like fleece lining and high deniers, or the weight of the fabric, come into play here.
With these colorful balaclavas, you can keep your head and neck warm all at once. They are the must-have winter accessory. Just put on your sunglasses and a mask, and there won’t be much skin left that can get cold.
The beanie is the most versatile type of winter hat. It works hard to keep you warm without taking away from the rest of your outfit. You can keep things simple with a grey cashmere knit beanie or you can make a more colorful statement with a brighter color.
Sunglasses aren’t just for the summer. Think about how the sun looks when it shines on snow, or how clear the air is on a cold day with no clouds. Choose a big frame to protect your eyes and show off your style.
9. Crossbody Bag
When wearing bulky outerwear like puffer coats, cashmere sweaters and a cashmere turtleneck, it’s a pain to sling a tote bag over the shoulder. So we usually go for crossbody bags instead. Plus, it frees up your hands so you can put them in your pockets on really cold days or to show off your stylish hand warmers.
10. Faux Fur Bucket Hats
This faux fur piece stands out because so many people actually wear it. The beret has some competition with faux fur bucket hats. Even though beret might be more stylish, a faux fur bucket hat is perfect for casual days and nights out when you want to look your best.
11. Layered Necklaces
The trend of wearing layered necklaces at once has been going strong all year, but heavy chains have been all over the winter runways. This is a good trend because buying layered necklaces is a good investment that works well for all seasons. Layering is a style that will be around for a while, so it’s best to build your collection gradually and choose items that complement each other and have personal significance to you.
12. Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater
Cashmere isn’t just for businesswoman with corner offices. A 100% cashmere wool sweater is very soft and comes in a wide range of colors. It is warm and stylish at the same time. If you’re looking for a turtleneck that fits well and can be worn under other layers, you should focus on the ribs and collar fitting. Get one that you can wash by hand instead of going to the dry cleaners.
13. Trendy Boots
You won’t have to worry about the weather when it gets crazy. All kinds of boots look really cool and keep your feet warm. Depending on your outfit, you can choose ankle boots, long boots or knee-high boots. They can be worn with skirts, over leggings and with high stockings.
14. Faux Fur Coat
The faux fur us a good investment because it will keep you warm all winter long. Unlike real fur, faux fur doesn’t hurt animals and doesn’t shed. This makes a great choice for people who don’t want to wear real fur but still want to stay warm and look good. Fur is a very pretty fabric, so a faux fur coat will make any winter outfit look more stylish right away. There are different colors of these coats. So you can choose one that goes with the rest of your clothes. A faux fur coat is a great choice if you want to wear something stylish and useful on the coldest days.
15. Warm and Cozy Sweaters
The knitted outerwear is not only cozy, but it also makes you look good in the winter. Whether they are too big or just for everyday wear, sweaters add a pop to your outfit. This season is all about chunky knits, simple cardigans and sweater dresses. If you wear a sweater dress, you won’t need extra clothes. This winter, you can look classy by adding some style to a sweater dress. You can add more layers you want, but that isn’t always necessary. A blazer or animal-print coat can be great for a more formal look.
16. Leather Trousers
These tights will keep you warm and are very fashionable. Tights made out of leather are very trendy right now. These are stylish and can be worn both casual and dressy clothes. You can look very pretty in them with some ankle boots and just a simple coat. You can really get into the winter spirit by putting on a dark lip color. This outfit will be perfect for cold and windy date nights. Curl your hair a little to look like you didn’t even try and you’re good to go. You can also choose to wear them with a simple sweater and flat pumps. You don’t have to do much to style them. Just let your hair hang down in naturally and wear a few small pieces of jewelry, such as earrings or a simple pendant.
17. Jean Jacket
Denim jackets are timeless, so there’s no need to pack yours away just because it’s getting cold outside. Even on the coldest days, you can wear it by putting it over a coat and under a warm wool scarf. You can wear this outfit to class, out for coffee or to pick up the kids if you pair it with black jeans or leggings.
The jogger is basically a pair of pants with a loose fit and wide legs. It is good for winter because it will let you move around without feeling like your clothes are too tight. I love denim jeans but sometimes they are often too heavy to wear in the winter. Joggers made of light materials like cotton, linen, or synthetics like polyester or spandex will keep you warm without making you feel too heavy.
Most of these picks from the list have one thing in common, they don’t care too much about following the latest fashion trends. This is because most of us now put more value on buying high-quality, long-lasting products that are ideally also good for the environment. Go for items that look good and are made to last. Most of what you already have in your closet will probably go with them. You can look fashionable and confident without spending a fortune.
