9 tricks to make your winter outfits interesting

January 6, 2016

As a personal stylist I often find my clients struggle the hardest with their winter style. To be honest I sometimes struggle too, especially since I’m living in a climate where below zero temps are not uncommon for winter months. Most of the time the first things I’m thinking about when it comes to winter style are skinny jeans, heavy boots and lots of knitwear, but let’s face it, such combos are boring.

I’ve drawn up a small list of tricks I’m using to make my winter outfits less boring, when I’m in the mood for it. Are you using any of these? How do you spice up your winter outfits?

1. Ponchos and capes

Just throw a long poncho over your average winter outfit or replace the usual scarf and you immediately look like someone rushing to a fashion show!

2. Overknee boots

They protect your legs from the cold and are extremely trendy right now.


3. Total looks

Combine same color pieces for a sophisticated look.

4. Colored fur

Patchwork fur and multi-colored fur is extremely hot this winter plus it’s the one of the warmest things you can wear.

5. Metallics

An unexpected touch to add to your blacks or pastels.

6. Maxi coats

Go for the long coat this winter for a chic and trendy vibe.


7. Layering outerwear

We all know this trick but do we use it often enough?

8. Snake print boots

The only 70’s touch you need in your outfits!

9. Beret

Go for a chic woolen beret instead of your regular hats or beanies for that french girl
