Ready to give up on life and just walk around in a giant blanket? There’s hope yet! Winter wardrobe blues solved.
PAIR NAVY WITH BLACK
Forget what you heard: You can (and should) wear black and navy together. The combination is an unexpected twist…and is relatively low lift since you probs already own a lot of both colors.
LET YOUR COAT DO ALL THE TALKING
A statement coat allows you to put in almost no effort without looking sloppy or boring. Wearing sweats under there? We won’t tell.
LAYER A CROPPED SWEATER OVER A BUTTON-DOWN
Winter is for layering, and this look is warm, stylish and remarkably slimming.
POP SOME COLOR WITH YOUR HAT AND SCARF
A neutral-colored wardrobe will never let you down, but if you do want to spice it up, bold accessories are the way to go.
OR YOUR BAG
An all-black base allows a bright purse to absolutely shine.
MATCH YOUR COAT TO YOUR SHOES
Your coat and shoes don’t have to be red, but wearing both pieces in the same shade pulls your whole outfit together, with minimal effort.
GO BLACK, WHITE AND RED ALL OVER
We'd never knock the classic one-two punch of a black and white outfit, but a flash of red is a welcome addition.
WEAR A HOODIE WITH A CAR COAT
A little sporty, a little business-y, a lot copyable.
BELT AN OVERSIZE KNIT
How to Avoid Looking Like You’re Drowning in a Lot of Fabric 101.
PIN A BROOCH TO YOUR COAT
It’s jewelry! For your clothes! (Heads up that it may make a tiny hole in the fabric, so you've gotta be willing to commit to this one.)
TOUGHEN UP YOUR GIRLY PINK
Don’t want to look like a bubble gum wrapper? Pair your pink with edgier pieces like loose-fitting jeans, black ankle boots or a studded handbag.
MIX AND MATCH JEWEL TONES
It’s not for the faint of heart, but pairing one jewel tone with another is unexpected and oh-so-beautiful.
WEAR A DRESSY COAT WITH A CASUAL OUTFIT
Would Monroe Steele's faux-fur coat look incredible with a fancy dress and heels? Yes. Does it look just as fabulous with a sweater and black jeans? You bet.
MATCH YOUR PANTS TO YOUR BOOTS
Want to fake miles-long legs? Take it from Krystal Bick and opt for a monochrome lower half.
TAKE A NEWSBOY CAP FOR A WHIRL
These stylish hats make a pretty big statement on their own, so keep the rest of your outfit fairly straightforward (jeans and a puffer will more than suffice).
LAYER YOUR COATS
Just make sure the base-level coat is shorter and more fitted than the one you put on top.
DON’T WAIT UNTIL SPRING TO WEAR FLORALS
Unexpected printed pants for the win.
BELT AN OVERSIZE COAT
WEAR VELVET WHILE YOU STILL CAN
Whether it’s in pants, a jacket or a full suit, take advantage of this magical fabric before the temps rise.
TUCK IN A CHUNKY KNIT
Well, half-tuck it. The result is as cool and effortless as it is flattering.
WINTERIZE A SILKY MAXI SKIRT
Maxis typically scream summer, but not when worn underneath an oversize turtleneck in the same color.
WEAR A SHOULDER BAG AS A CROSSBODY
Refreshing your wardrobe can be as simple as wearing something you already own in a slightly different way.
MIX TWO VERSIONS OF THE SAME PRINT
Bold plaid ruffle shirt + demure plaid blazer = sartorial heaven.
RECONSIDER THE PONCHO
When we think "poncho," we think about those water-resistant things tourists wear at Disney. A knit version is the perfect combination of cozy and stylish, especially when paired with leather leggings and slip-on loafers.
GO BOLD AND MONOCHROMATIC
Shirt, pants, shoes, jacket, purse. Boom.
...OR JUST WEAR ALL BLACK
It's easy, flattering and timeless. Did we mention easy?
LAYER A SPRING DRESS OVER A TURTLENECK
Taye Hansberry so stylishly proves that a turtleneck, jacket and ankle boots turn a dress we’d wear on a 75-degree day into one that’s happily winter-ready.
IGNORE THE “NO WHITE PANTS AFTER LABOR DAY” RULE
FYI, winter white looks incredible with camel.
