Winter days are on my mind. More specifically, though, the carefully sorted and cozy outfits I plan on wearing all throughout the colder months are what's really on my mind. With puffer coats and snow boots, holiday looks and fuzzy foot warmers, the winter wardrobe potential is truly a peak fashion moment.
But while some thrive in the cold, others can’t help but wonder (sorry not sorry about this Carrie Bradshaw moment): How could one possibly look “cute” when it’s below freezing and you’re just trying to stop your body from turning into an icicle? For those who relate (hi, me), there's a plethora of tips and tricks to inspire your cold-weather dressing this season.
Maybe you need help figuring out how, exactly, to layer your clothing. Or perhaps you wanna skip the layers layers and focus on your outerwear, instead. Whatever your cold-weather ensemble woes—including the desire for a lil cute winter outfits inspo—we've got you covered, below. From scarves and coats to winter-friendly dresses, below are our favorite cozy looks of the season.
Not many winter outfits are complete without a chunky scarf. Not to mention, obscenely massive scarves are becoming a 2022 trend so make sure to hop on the bandwagon fast!
I’m not saying you need this leather puffer, but would life really feel complete without it? Probs not. This coat will have you feeling tucked in and toasty as you stroll through that crisp weather.
The winter really allows you to get playful with layers, knits, and patterns. But it's vital to have a few statement coats and jackets since they ARE the first thing anyone else can see on you.
You know those days when you're required to look put together, but all you want is to wrap yourself in a thick blanket? A long, soft to the touch cardigan such as this will help you achieve both.
A shacket is a must-have layering piece. When it’s slightly warmer you can wear it on its own, but you can also add a thicker puffer over it if needed. Dark jeans and lug-sole boots add an edgy vibe to it.
Jeans go with absolutely everything, so you're going to want a warm and comfortable pair in your roster—one with no fashionable holes and rips, just a reliable pair that fits any and every shirt and shoe.
It is an absolute necessity to own this checkered faux fur coat for the following three reasons:
- It's trendy, but still a one-of-a-kind piece.
- It's super fluffy and long for warmth.
- You'll look ridiculously cool wearing it.
All the cool girls on the block have their hands on this coat, so believe me when I say they are disappearing off the market at rapid speed. Make sure to get yours before they're all gone!
Don't you just love when you find something that, up until then, you didn't know you can't live without? That's how I felt when I saw this fringe knit cape. It's also perfectly chic for a winter office look!
I love wearing a warm dress in the winter. Paired with some white boots and a floor-length coat, you’ve got the most sophisticated work or late-night outfit.
Leather jackets look straight-up cool against a winter backdrop. Make sure to layer up with turtlenecks and long jeans to avoid getting too cold.
A turtleneck sweater with matching knit pants makes for a killer cozy winter outfit, don’t you think? Besides, who wants to wear tight, form-fitting clothes these days?
This is the type of coat you keep in your wardrobe for years—and it looks really amazing paired with all the neutrals in your closet.
A thick cardigan over a high-neck dress adds some extra warmth if you’re at an indoor get-together that’s chilly, but you still want to look pulled together.
You can’t go through winter without some sturdy warm boots. It typically takes me months to find the right pair, by which time winter is almost already over. So to spare you the stress, I’m presenting these beauties from Mango that look dang great with a double-breasted coat.
A classic, chic blazer can turn any ensemble into a seriously cool look. Just take this brown jacket, for instance. Add a basic top and some acid-wash jeans, and you've got a new go-to 'fit.
One can absolutely never have too many knit sweaters in the winter. That's a fact, so go ahead and feel no guilt as you add yet another jumper into your cart.
Something about wearing a matching sweatsuit set makes me feel whole, can't you agree? This oat look will keep you warm, cute, and toasty as you lounge around on a relaxing Sunday.
If you haven't heard the word, trench coats are back in again. As a matter of fact, trench coats are a timeless piece that have been in style for centuries. And frankly, this colorblock moment is too cute to pass up.
Jumpsuits can eliminate a whole lot of piecing together an outfit when your brain is just too cold to function in the morning. Grab this turtleneck jumpsuit and all you'll have to worry about is putting on a nice coat.
Okay, yes, this piece is pricey, but hear me out! You can detach the bottom AND sleeves, and create three different jackets out of the one. Not bad, eh?
What did I say about oversized scarves?? A quality piece such as this can up the cozy vibes a good few notches and complete your entire winter outfit.
Big fan of leather pants here. They have the magical ability to make any outfit look elegant. Not to mention, they're typically a little thicker and therefore warmer than your usual trousers. Win!
Don't you just love cozy-wear that can be dressed up into a fancy look? I mean, you're literally wearing track pants yet you look like a million bucks. Perfectly appropriate for outdoor wear and it'll still feel like you never left your bed. Ideal.
