Winter can be a difficult season to stay stylish in. Between the numerous layers, uncomfortable adjustments, temperature sways, ice, and so much more. What I have found keeps me the most fashionable, while staying confident and sassy, is using layers to my advantage.

For example, a casual outfit may consist of a lace camisole under a cardigan sweater followed by a leather motorcycle jacket, and then a thicker and warmer coat over that. (If it’s truly cold enough). This can be paired with many different pant, jean, or skirt options. Adding in a pair of trendy, heeled boots or over the knee boots will keep this look feeling fresh. A warm, bulky sweater with leggings or black skinny jeans, OTK boots or booties and a long camel or peat coat is also a definite winter go-to.

When going out, layers are a must as well. Picture a velvet camisole dress paired over a thin, long sleeve top. Paired with wool tights, over the knee boots, a scarf, and full or midi-length winter coat. My favorite trick for keeping winter chic, is wearing a coat that is longer than the dress, skirt, or top I am wearing. (This doesn’t include cropped jackets). Wearing a coat longer than your dress, skirt, or top, will provide your #OOTD with an elegant flare. A cute hat can also be added to give a Parisian vibe.
