How to Dress for The Colder Weather Without Sacrificing Style

Winter means blustery winds and the promise of snow. However, this often isn’t the best weather for sandals and your best outfits. It would be best if you put together a winter wardrobe that will protect you no matter what you are coming up against. Here are some of the best ways to dress for the colder weather without sacrificing your style.

Ditch the Jeans

If you know it will be quite a wet day or snow is forecast, you need to ditch your jeans for the day. Damp denim is one of the most uncomfortable garments you can wear, and it takes forever to dry again. No matter which fabrics you choose to wear instead, it will probably be a better option than denim.

Find a Heavy-Duty Coat

It would be best to find a coat that will keep you warm no matter what is thrown at it. While there are many excellent waterproof materials, you might also consider a heavy-duty wool coat. Good wool that has been appropriately treated will keep you warm and relatively dry. Find a skin brighter or eye-catching jacket for a bit more fun.


One of the best choices you can make is to choose a good pair of boots to get you through the winter. Pick up a couple of leather boots to ensure that your feet will always be kept warm and dry. The proper boots will also look good with any outfit you want to pair them with.


Cold weather means that you have to wrap up warm. One of the best ways to do so is to throw on a jumper. They are easy to layer up and down, and the right one can look highly stylish. Think about investing in one from a well-established maker. They are likely to be better made than something you pick up from the high street while allowing you to contribute to a prestigious brand or business.

Layer Up

One of the best ways you can dress stylishly in winter is with layers. Don’t just think about how you will put your clothes together for warmth; you should also consider how they look when layered together. Investing in colours and patterns which mix well will mean that you can create a mix of outfits which layer well together while also keeping you warm. Learning how to layer your clothes together well will be a skill you can use in winter and other seasons.

Hats, Gloves, and Scarves

Is it a winter outfit if you don’t have one of these to complete it? From matching sets to sleek but mismatched pieces, there are many options for you to choose from. Try leather gloves over wool gloves if you want to keep your hands warm and dry. Bobble hats will always be in, and you can find many beautiful scarves to finish your outfit. Start looking for something which could work for you.

Building a winter wardrobe can be more complex than putting together a spring or summer one. However, with the right key pieces, you can keep yourself warm no matter what the weather outside is like. You need to make sure that you put together a wardrobe which works for you. Start shopping for the perfect pieces now. You never know what you might be able to find in your closet.
