1. The Textured Turtleneck
Turtlenecks have been in fashion for both men and women since the '70s, but we're not talking about the bland cotton ones here. The quintessential winter turtleneck is one that comes in textured material and is in a neutral shade like black, tan, or white. These turtlenecks can be tucked into high-waisted jeans for a laidback look, or paired with tailored slacks that will give you major girl boss vibes. Celebs like Zendaya have been rocking this look all season.
2. Knee-High Leather Boots
Knee-high leather boots have never gone out of fashion, but the shape of the toe and heel have evolved over the decades. This season, black or brown leather boots with a square toe and chunky heels are the boots to buy. The fashion lover who enjoys making a statement will love these. A long flowy boho dress in a muted pattern pairs well with these boots. If you want that rider chic aesthetic that Brits seem to adore, then wear these with a pair of skin-tight leather pants or skinny jeans.
3. Chandelier Earrings
A great outfit isn't just about the clothes, it also takes some serious accessories to jazz it up and make people take notice. One accessory that everyone can see during the colder months is statement earrings. We're not talking about tiny studs, but chandelier earrings. These dangling earrings should add a bit of glitz and glamor. Look for a pair that has some rhinestones or other sparkly materials.
4. The Slip Dress
That effortless "just tumbled out of bed" look can be hard to achieve in winter. If you live in a place like New York City, outfits that don't cover a lot of skin can be pretty breezy on a cold day. However, the silk slip dress with a pair of sheer tights, and a long trench coat over top can create some serious movie star vibes. Look for a slipdress with some lace trim, and add a pair of sky-high heels for a look that is sure to turn heads and keep you warm at the same time.
5. The Oversized Blazer
Not all winter looks need to be in muted earth tones, sometimes it's necessary to add a bright pop of color to your winter wardrobe. This season that bright pop of color comes in the form of oversized blazers. An oversized blazer looks amazing with a pair of tight skinny jeans, tailored pants, or form-fitting leather pants. To avoid a clash of colors, we would suggest black or dark blue jeans for this look rather than a pair in a bright color.
6. The Peplum Blouse
The peplum style is usually associated with dresses. Usually, there is a tailored dress shirt or sheath dress with a peplum, or ruffle of material around the midsection zone. What makes this style so great, is that it is flattering on all figures. The peplum effectively hides any lumpy areas and gives you a natural hourglass figure. The peplum shirt does the same thing while giving you the option to wear pants or a long skirt. All of these statement pieces will have you looking stylish for many winters to come.
