It’s cold out, people. End. Of. Discussion. And when that mercury starts to drop, best believe that finding any way to stay cozy and warm will be at the top of your to-do list. In the midst of this fast-dash to bundle up, don’t let your style sensibilities fall by the wayside. There are plenty of ways to stay at the height of your style game that don’t just involve tossing on a cardigan. There are way more creative ways to bundle this season — these five pairings are proof. Try ’em this weekend on your trip to the pumpkin patch, at Thanksgiving dinner (when we *all* could use a little more forgiving room) and when you hit your hometown over holiday break.
COZY WINTER OUTFIT TO TRY: FAUX FUR COAT + JOGGERS
As if denim wasn’t already the epitome of effortless, it went all-out jogger style on us. This is amazing news for lazy girls and fashion-forward femmes everywhere, since there now exists a legit alternative to wearing sweats when you want to leave the house but can’t stand the thought of pajama-like duds. Pair it with an eye-catching faux fur coat in bright hues or bold prints and get ready to turn some heads. The luxe look balances out the casual feel of the bottoms, but won’t compromise on comfort. Finish the getup with slip-on sneakers and a soft knit turtleneck.
COZY WINTER OUTFIT TO TRY: SWEATER DRESS + WIDE-LEGGED TROUSERS
Sweater dresses and roomy pants have likely made their way into your wardrobe this season, contributing to endless outfits that earn you most-stylish status at both the office and in your group of friends. But if you’ve never worn the two together, you 100% should. Together they create an unstoppable getup with just the right balance of throwback and right-now flair. Add a waist belt to highlight your figure, sleek statement drop earrings and chunky mules.
COZY WINTER OUTFIT TO TRY: TURTLENECK + JUMPSUIT
It’s all about all-knit-everything right now, so why not make the most of it? Team up two heavy hitters this season — a turtleneck top and a soft knit jumpsuit — and bask in your snug-and-stylish glory. Add an oversized boyfriend coat and menswear flats when you’re ready to take your one-woman knit party outside.
COZY WINTER OUTFIT TO TRY: MIDI SKIRT + HIGH-TOP SNEAKRS
If you didn’t think anything could get better than a knit jumpsuit, you’re wrong. The sweater skirt is a game-changing piece that will put your go-to midi to shame. Lace-up pumps and ankle boots no doubt make a mean pairing for those moments when you need to impress, but it’s super-bright hightops that reign supreme outside of working hours. The two create a cool contrast that’s made even better with a scuba sweatshirt and fisherman’s hat.
COZY WINTER OUTFIT TO TRY: CAPE + FLANNEL
Capes have been deemed the undisputed outerwear champion for fall, so if you’re yet to scoop one up, no time is better than the here and now. Killer with classic sweaters, riding boots and jeans, the topper takes on a whole new feel when styled with a plaid flannel shirt. That’s right — double plaid; a little bit elegant and a whole lot of autumnal edge. Pair up with boyfriend jeans and loafers, or if you’re feeling fancy, a pair of haute heels.
