9 Ways I Plan on Styling All My Winter Basics This Year

Winter dressing is a constant repetition of all of those items you simply have to wear because it's cold outside. You know the ones—oversize sweaters, chunky boots, puffers, and more. After a while, it can feel like you've exhausted all of the outfit combinations possible to make that said basic look cool again. Since I'm no personal stylist, I tend to rely on all those women who are drastically cooler than me to inspire my necessary wardrobe updates, and today, I'm sharing all of my finds with you. 

I scrolled through one of my favorite street style sites, Style du Monde, for a handful of new winter outfits I can wear with all of my basics. Since most of those classic items are non-negotiable when it comes time to get dressed every day, I figured why continue to choose to get inspired by outfits that require buying tons of new items when I could, instead, tailor my search toward looks that incorporate items I already own? By now, surely, you're curious what I found, so go ahead and see the nine new ways I plan on styling all my winter basics this year. 

The Basic: Blue Jeans

Go for double the fuzz with a loud faux-fur coat and a winter hat to match. The duo will make your most basic jeans feel brand-new. 

The Basic: Camel Turtleneck

Throw your slightly oversize camel turtleneck over a leather shirt and khaki trousers. The combination of these layers on top might even let you skip your coat altogether. 

The Basic: Black Puffer

Go sporty with your classic black puffer and pair it with cool tie-dye sweatpants and a bright red baseball cap. Trust me, they're trending. 

The Basic: Blazer

Wear your blazer as a coat atop a cashmere hoodie and a bold turtleneck. Throw on some wild pants and you've got yourself a knockout winter look.

The Basic: Crewneck Sweater

Match the snow and wear white from head-to-toe with a warm and fuzzy coat and simple ballet flats to keep the look ultra polished. 

The Basic: Hiking Boots

Dress up your most intense winter hiking boots with a fun coat and a printed dress. The contrast of the two will be just the unexpected twist your frigid day needs. 

The Basic: Leather Trench

Jazz up your leather trench with a feather-adorned pant and sleek pointed-toe mules. Although covered in black, you'll still be standing out from the crowd. 

The Basic: Knee-High Boots

Slip your skinny jeans into those knee-high boots and find the most colorful jacket you can. With a babushka scarf atop your head, there's no way anyone will mistake you for anything other than what you are—a fashion girl. 

Basic: Black Boots

Update even the most basic of winter jackets with your favorite black boots and a fun tie-dye sweatshirt.
