I’m super excited because it’s the most wonderful time of the year and I get to tell you about my five favorite winter trends! While most of the trends are a carryover from fall, I’m seeing a lot of our perennial favorites. What I mean by that is our winter staples, cozy sweaters, leggings and of course, plaid. So let’s dive right into these winter trends you can add to your closet right now. For even more details on my five favorites check out the video below!
Let’s start with plaid because I think that plaid is one of the most wearable winter trends we can add to our closet. Year after year we see so many different variations of plaid which is what makes it so fun. It’s both classic and ever-changing. This year I’m seeing a lot of bright plaids with pinks and purples but I’m also seeing a lot of the classic black watch plaid. If you’re not familiar with black watch plaid, it combines green, navy and black. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but I put on the pants pictured above and instantly fell in love. The trick with plaid, and well anything if I’m being completely honest, is that you can’t judge it until you try it on and remember not all plaids are created equal. Just because you don’t like the way one plaid looks doesn’t mean you should rule out them all. Keep trying until you find one you love!
2. Bright Colors
Bright colors are back in a big way this winter. Bright pink, fuchsia, you name it. These bright colors are totally on-trend. We saw a lot of this in fall 2019 and it’s carrying over into winter so if you invested in some bright sweaters for fall, guess what? You’re going to get plenty of wear from them this winter too. You really can’t go wrong with adding a bright color to your wardrobe this winter.
3. A Versatile Blouse
It’s party time ladies and no winter wardrobe is going to be complete without a beautiful blouse. I highly recommend that if you don’t have a pretty blouse you’ll want to get one because it is going to be a workhorse in your wardrobe this winter. It’s perfect for holiday parties, you can pair it up with a pair of plaid pants or dark jeans, add a statement necklace, the possibilities are endless which is why this is such an amazingly versatile piece. I promise you will get so much use out of a beautiful blouse this winter!
4. Sweater Dress
Winter is the time for getting cozy and there’s no better way to do that than in a cozy sweater dress. The cool thing about sweater dresses is that they never go out of style. I have sweater dresses that I’ve had for at least five years. A basic black turtleneck sweater dress is going to stay in style forever and they are so easy to dress up or down. Plus they’re super comfortable. You can pair them with some tights and a pair of leopard print booties. Or if you want to dress it up you can put on some heels and some statement jewelry or you can even wear it with your cozy UGG boots. It is super comfortable and super versatile. And you’re going to want to keep this one in your closet for a really, really long time.
5. Faux Leather Leggings
Last but definitely not least, we’ve got our faux leather leggings. Yes, ladies. These are sticking around! If you don’t have a pair yet, you’re going to want to get them. I’m not going to lie, I usually wear my faux leather leggings about three times a week. I like to pair them with my cozy sweaters and my ankle boots. They can also be dressed up or down super easily and they’re so comfortable! I promise if you don’t have a pair of these yet, you are definitely going to want to add a pair for winter 2019!
