When choosing winter outfits, a vital criterion is keeping you warm, followed by looks and style.
That’s because dressing with style while also staying warm in the harsh, cold winter seems quite an arduous task to achieve.
However, that shouldn’t be the case, and in this article, I’ll share with you 5 winter outfits ideas that’ll make you look cute and chic in no time at all.
Without further ado, these are the best 5 winner outfits ideas, for ladies, in 2022.
Winter Outfits Idea 1:
Wearing layered clothing is excellent for staying warm and cozy in the cold winter weather.
But, when properly matched, layered clothing emphasizes your style.
Bear in mind to wear loose layered clothing, to allow air circulation and avoid overheating.
For places that are difficult to layer, such as legs, wearing thermal tights is an intelligent move.
Also, wear an inner layer that absorbs sweat, offers extra insulation, and enables ventilation.
Winter Outfits Idea 2:
HOODIE OVER A DRESS
Wearing dresses in the cold winter weather is not an easy task.
However, with proper styling, you can still wear dresses and look just as good as you would in the summer.
Ideally, you choose long summer dresses for extra leg coverage and combine them with sweaters, hoodies, or turtlenecks.
I had a look online for ‘winter dresses,’ and I see most online clothing stores – Next, Zara, Primark, River Island, H&M – stock a lot of discounted long summer dresses you can capitalize on.
Just don’t forget to match them with oversized hoodies, on-sales sweaters, hoodies, warm tops, and other winter-appropriate clothing for a messy but cool look.
Finalize the ensemble with a pair of flex pants in various colors – I got mine from Kimbino via an excellent Costco leaflet discount – to match the rest of the outfit.
Winter Outfits Idea 3:
COOL & FUNKY SOCKS
Socks are essential pieces of clothing in the winter, designed to keep your feet warm.
However, when selected with intention, socks can become critical style accessories that augment your look and make you stand out.
Right now, in 2022, over-knee socks are very stylish when matched with medium-size skirts.
Also, don’t forget to wear skin-colored thermal tights underneath your funky socks to keep your legs warm while giving the illusion you are wearing them on your skin.
Winter Outfits Idea 4:
Wearing summer clothing in the winter – such as midi dresses, semi-length skirts, and casual tops, is not just fashionable but also doable if done correctly.
Skirts and dresses are some of the most popular summer clothing pieces in the winter.
However, you can also wear turtlenecks with leather pants under a long winter coat.
This combo is very trendy in the UK, grabbing a lot of attention as a beautiful and exciting streetwear clothing combination.
Winter Outfits Idea 5:
STYLISH WINTER HATS & GLOVES
Hats, gloves, and scarves are a must during the cold weather.
However, not any type of hat can enhance your outfit; on the contrary.
For example, beanie hats are excellent headwear pieces for both keeping your head warm and augmenting your style.
As a simple rule, wear stylish winter hats that keep your head, ears, and forehead warm while allowing people to view your face.
Then, make sure the color of your hat matches your shoes and your bag; that’s a must.
When it comes to gloves, there’s a wide range available, from leather to cashmere mittens.
If you are going on a dinner date, wearing an elegant dress and a stylish coat, match that with a pair of leather gloves.
As a color, black is fine – but if you can find (and afford) leather gloves in the color of your shoes and bag, go for it!
Cashmere mittens are fine for a smart casual outfit with jeans, a sweater, and a puffer jacket.
Now you know that looking stylish in the winter while also staying warm is not that hard.
Also, there’s no need to break the bank; follow these five tips, and you’ll be fine.
To recap, layer summer clothing with winter garments to create a modern, stylish look.
Color-wise, choose darker colors – more suitable in the winter season – and match them with a light-colored puffy sweater on top, leather combat boots, and a nice pair of jeans for women.
For an extra effect, try adding long necklaces hanging over the sweater and a pair of large rings to match the overall relaxed look.
Last but don’t least, don’t forget to match the color of your hat and gloves to your shoes and handbag.
Now it’s your turn…
