In the winter, there’s always that one thing that crosses our minds in the mornings: How did it get this cold?! Winter is the season where we really start bundling up in multiple layers, adding scarves, boots, tights under jeans. The season that brings all the fun, holiday festivities in which you spend time with friends and family…what a time to be alive! Winter is holiday shopping season. Regardless of fashion trends, velvet fabrics, embellished clothing, heavy outerwear, and party dresses are the go-to this season. Snowy winter days and cold nights calls for Netflix and chill with a cup of hot chocolate. I know they say fall is the season for catching up on all your binge-watching shows, but I think winter takes the win for this one.
Winter Holidays and Activities
We are so lucky that most holidays fall in the winter because if they didn’t this would be one very boring season with absolutely nothing to look forward to. Except maybe snowboarding, if you’re not afraid of heights. But, who doesn’t look forward to the holiday season and all the traditions that come along with it. Some traditions may be putting up the tree and all Christmas decorations with family on Thanksgiving Day or going Christmas shopping with your mom on Black Friday morning (if you’re one of the smart ones who doesn’t leave Christmas shopping for last minute…guilty). Let’s not forget your annual Christmas party at work (I’m sure you look forward to that every year), or the ugly Christmas sweater party you plan with your group of friends. But, the best part of all is spending holiday season with those you love, maybe those that you don’t get to see as often as you would like due to school or work. AND since the holidays is all about eating without resisting all the sweets that get thrown your way…New Year’s comes along for you to start with a fresh new slate. You know the whole new year, new me spiel! Reminder Alert! Take in the new year with new goals and dreams accomplish.
Winter Color Trends
Winter color trends aren’t any different than fall. If you haven’t already noticed bright and bold colors are all the talk this season. Anything from pastels to all the neon colors and the neutrals to the shimmering silver. I think my favorite this year has to be the shimmering silvers and black which I feel truly never goes out of style. Black is just so universally flattering and this winter season we’ll be season more of high-shine options in black such as patent leather and latex. All these winter color trends are spot on making you look more elegant than ever for the holiday season.
Winter Fashion Trends
Coat and boot season is here, and I couldn’t be any happier. Coats have become such a fashion statement some come in plaid, cheetah print, vinyl – making your outfit look extra chic for the winter season. Teddy coats are also the latest trend this winter, they’re so soft and warm. In fact, the texture of this coat is more like that of the old teddy bear you used to snuggle up to as a kid, hence the name. From wonderfully colorful to neutral tones, cropped variations or elongated types, the real beauty of a teddy coat is that it is undeniably cozy. I know it can be hard to transition from one season to another, but it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you think. Don’t want to let go of those mini skirts you love so much – slip them on with over-the-knee boots. If you haven’t already pulled out your turtlenecks make sure you get those out too. Neon turtlenecks like a lime green have been super trendy, you can pair them with a black puffer jacket to give your look a pop of color. Finally, boots are a fashion statement that you must invest in – ankle boots, mid-calf boots, or over-the-knee boots. Boots are so versatile, you can really wear them with anything. Pair over-the-knee boots with dresses and skirts. OR Pair ankle boots with denim jeans and joggers.
