Winter is one of the most challenging seasons to dress for. It doesn’t matter how beautiful your top is or how graceful you can walk in heels, when you’re trudging through snow during twenty degree weather. To be fully prepared for Winter’s harsh temperatures, you’re going to want to dress smart while looking stylish. Here’s a list of coats and accessories to wear for the chilly season.
A better alternative than real fur, Faux Fur is becoming trendier than ever! They may not be as warm as the real deal, but they are definitely more flexible when it comes to styling your outfit. Faux Fur comes in all different types of colors and designs like leopard and striped. If you don’t want to stick out to much in your faux fur coat, wear a warm sweater with jeans and knee-high boots. The casualness of your overall outfit would help tone done the extravagance of the coat. If you don’t mind turning a few heads, try a colored faux fur overcoat. With this coat, even if you’re bundled up, you’ll still be catching attention.
Not comfortable wearing all that fur? Try a Parka! Parkas with faux fur around the hood are classic coats to wear during Winter. Like Faux Fur coats, these jackets come with different colors for you to choose from, but the popular parka colors are green and black. An olive green parka jacket would be a great addition for a black striped shirt with matching boots. For something out of the box, wear a red parka with matching red boots and denim jeans.

For New Englanders traveling through the worst of the worst, wool is the way to go. Not only is wool a great insulator, it’s also water resistant. Since this will be your main coat throughout the season, try dark but bold colors like grey and black to match with any of your outfits. For those who are allergic to wool, there is always the alternative faux wool to chose from with the same stylish results!
It doesn’t matter if your coat is bright yellow or pitch black, by throwing on a quality scarf, you can enhance any style. If you’re wearing a solid colored wool (or faux wool) coat, a bright red scarf can liven up the jacket in an instant. If you want to tone down the brightness of your bright red parka, just wrap a grey scarf around your neck. Not only is there so many colors to choose from, but there is also different ways to tie the scarf around your neck in a way that can make your outfit more interesting and fun!
If you want to give your old pair of boots a fresh look, try a pair of boot socks! With various colors and patterns to choose from, you can give your boots an unique look everyday of the week! Why buy a new pair of boots, when you can give your old ones personality just by wearing different colored socks!
