When you picture winter outerwear, chances are you think of bulky and heavy pieces. But the truth is, with a little tweaking, you can really turn your winter essentials into ‘it girl’ approved looks — all you really need is a few style pointers to streamline and balance the look. Read on to learn how you can create a no-fail outfit that will make you actually want to be out in the cold.
If you have yet to rock a puffer coat, let this be your inspiration to embrace this trend. Style a puffer jacket over your go-to basics and drape it over your shoulders to create an ‘it’ girl look. It’s a simple styling hack that all the fashion bloggers use that truly makes a difference.
If you’ve scrolled through Instagram at least once this year, you know that textured coats, like teddy bear, shearling and faux fur, are having a major moment. Style a textured coat over a statement dress and a pair of sock booties for major 70s vibes.
A menswear-inspired jacket will instantly make an outfit look structured. For an overall flattering look, style a long grey blazer-style jacket with a fitted turtleneck, jeans and a pair of dark ankle boots.
Whoever said white after Labour Day was a fashion faux paux seriously never saw white outerwear. Turn some heads this season with a white blazer by pairing the statement coat with sleek trousers and a pair of sneakers. The unexpected hit of white will brighten your mood even on the gloomiest of days.
