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. You need to put together a winter wardrobe that will protect you no matter what you are coming up against. Here are some of the best ways you can dress for the colder weather without ever sacrificing your style.

Ditch the Jeans

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

Find a Heavy-Duty Coat

You need to find a coat which will keep you warm no matter what is thrown at it. While there are many great waterproof materials out there, you might also want to consider a heavy-duty wool coat. Wool which has been properly treated will keep you warm while also keeping you relatively dry. Try to find a coat which is brighter or eye-catching 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 pair of leather boots by Dune so you can be certain that your feet are always going to be kept warm and dry. The right 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 extremely 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

In winter, one of the best ways you can dress stylishly is with layers. Don’t just think about how you are going to put your clothes together for warmth; you should also think about how they look when layered together. Investing in colours and patterns which mix well will mean that you will be able to 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 which you can use not just in winter but in other seasons too.

Hats, Gloves, and Scarves

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

Building a winter wardrobe can feel more difficult compared to putting together a spring or summer one. However, with the right key pieces, you will be able to 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 your wardrobe.
