Winter weather is one of the more difficult seasons to dress for but can actually be done with a few affordable staple items. The Polyvore sets above are some trendy examples of cozy ways to dress for frigid temperatures without the Uggs and leggings.
Thick gray wool skinny pants are versatile enough for spring but look especially great paired with black knee high boots. Add a colorful coat and mustard bag to add some contrast. An interesting modern approach to winter dressing is a neutral shift dress with a black cape and sky high black bootie stilettos. Add warm opaque tights and aviators for a cool vibe.
Who says winter has to be all dark and neutrals? Mix up your pastels with a mint sweater and vibrant trench. Jeans with some stretch and flats make this ensemble super easy. Red is seasonally appropriate and adds richness to any outfit. For those extremely cozy days grab a soft scarf paired with a thick nubby sweater and leggings. Try channeling fashion it girl Alexa Chung, with worn in boyfriend jeans and a patterned sweater. A winter hat is a must whether it is knitted or felt. An incredibly warm and versatile shear lined coat is edgy with jeans, dresses, or tights.
Leather gloves are also essential for freezing weather. Denim shirts with colored jeans and leather boots are simple outfits for chilly days. An item I’m excited to purchase is a knitted wrap around sweater. Nothing looks as comfortable as a thick sweater with a simple blouse. Incorporating a few of these cozy, versatile pieces into your closet will make those rushed mornings quicker and cozier.
