There are a ton of fashion trends this winter – so many it’s almost hard to keep up. Luckily, some of the trendiest looks most likely incorporate items that you already have in your wardrobe. So, by investing in just a few new pieces this winter you can easily mix and match the new with the old and the high-end brands with the less expensive to put together chic and affordable looks this holiday season.
Whether you’re running errands, going to a coffee date or attending a holiday party, incorporate one of these must-haves into your look to stay warm and right on trend.
A well-structured blazer can add a touch of sophistication to any look. During the day, try a tweed blazer with a pair of skinny jeans. For a more formal affair, opt for a tuxedo jacket in either black or white.
Boots that that hit at the knee are wardrobe staple, while over-the-knee styles are making it big this season. When paired with jeans, leggings or a dress, high boots create a dramatic and sexy look.
Don’t just limit leather to your shoes. Try mixing leather leggings or a skirt with a chic biker jacket and boots for an even sexier and edgier look. Soften your outfit with a billowy blouse or a simple cashmere sweater.
Nothing says holidays like the color red. It also happens to be one of the sexiest colors. Crimson pieces, like a classic Azzaro dress, may be your go-to outfit for holiday shindigs, while the deeper, oxblood hue is great for everyday wear.
If you’re going to splurge on one thing this season, make it a luxurious fur coat or vest. Some of the best finds are in vintage shops where you can score real or faux goods. Fur is a stand-alone piece that looks great with an LBD or a pair of fitted jeans. I chose this one from Asos Marketplace -
From chunky cable knit sweaters to textured jackets and capes, textured knits are seen everywhere this season, and for a good reason – they keep you warm on those chilly winter days. A traditional sweater works great during the day with jeans and fun accessories. For night, glam it up by trying a more structured knit jacket.
Strong, sexy, stylish and soft. With a tailored fit and in a variety of prints and colors, silk trousers take a modern spin on the classic pants and shirt look. From high end designers to high street fashion stores, these super luxe pants are everywhere, so you’re bound to find a pair that is within your budget.
From chunky snoods and wild prints to pashminas and dainty silks, a fun, warm scarf can be your best friend this season, adding interest to your outfit and keeping you warm.
Having a bad hair day? Don’t worry. A big hat will hide it and instantly make you look glamorous. Complete any look with a floppy or wide brimmed hat.
Whether they’re handed down to you from your grandmother, a great steal at a vintage boutique, or a fun pair from a trendy shop – it doesn’t matter where you get these over-the-top statement earrings from, as long as you have a pair. This statement accessory adds a touch of glam and style to any outfit.
Thanks to Patti for the advice, all I need to do now if find all these things!
