6 Winter Style Tricks No One Ever Taught You
You probably have a go-to winter uniform already. For some, that may be a chunky turtleneck sweater paired with jeans, a parka, and boots. For others, maybe that's a slim knit with a classic peacoat, wool skirt, tights, and heels. There's certainly nothing wrong with your favorite ensemble, but why not switch it up a bit the season?
If you're looking for a more forward winter look and not sure exactly where to start, we're showcasing some of our favorite style tricks of the season you may not have thought about yet. While some of these tips are super easy to try with what you already have in your closet, a few may be more advanced if that's more your vibe.
Keep scrolling to check out the tricks the coolest fashion girls are testing out right now. Plus, shop winter must-haves, too. We promise there's something for everybody with what's coming ahead.
Wear a Puffer With Polished Separates
Puffers were traditionally reserved for commutes and off-duty life to stay warm, but this silhouette is currently the most forward outerwear silhouette. We suggest styling your favorite pick with more polished pieces like wide-leg trousers and heeled boots.
Layer a Turtleneck and Jacket Under a Coat
If you want a sleek yet chill layered look, follow this street style star's lead and pair your turtleneck (tucked in for a very 2016 feel) with a lightweight jacket and your coat or parka on top.
Tuck Your Joggers Into Your Boots
While cropped flares are clearly having a moment (and look ideal with a pair of gorgeous ankle boots), we're also totally down with the unexpected look of tucking a pair of on-trend joggers into a pair of pointed stiletto boots for a fresh and chill vibe.
Pair a Knit With a Chunky Sweater
Why wear one sweater when you can go for two? A lighter-weight sweater underneath a chunky (almost coat-like) sweater is incredibly fashion-forward—especially if you push up the sleeves of the chunky one to highlight the sleeves over the other style.
Incorporate a Denim Jacket Into Your Layers
It's no secret that a denim jacket is typically reserved for warmer spring and fall days, but the jacket style can actually be incredibly chic (and feel unique) in the winter layered under a sweaterdress, bomber, and classic topcoat.
Go for Tights and Socks With a Flowy Skirt
You may already wear tights with your favorite skirt, but you can give the overall vibe a new feel by also wearing ankle socks with the look and sneakers—cool and different for a night out.
