We’ve officially been in winter as of December 21st, so there’s no better time than the present to figure out how to style all of the bulky clothing you’re probably stuck with until March.

Over The Knee Boots

Fighting against the cold doesn’t have to be an ugly affair. Over the knee boots can block out the wind and rain, while keeping in some of that limited heat. I prefer a nice thigh-high boot personally, but I love how these boots can easily be used to dress up or down an outfit. Dressed down outfits can include an oversized sweater or a green anorak jacket. Dressed up, pair boots with a skater skirt or shift dress.

Wide Brimmed Hat

Did you know you actually don’t lose the most heat through your head? However, that doesn’t mean you should skip out on wearing a hat in the winter. If anything, use hats as an opportunity to expand on your style. Some of my favorites have been fedoras and wide-brimmed hats as of late.

Basic Sweater

Yes, I know. Obviously a sweater is included in this list, but it’s important to choose sweaters with zero embellishments or competing patterns for maximum wearability. A solid color sweater can be mixed and matched with tons of outfits. Pair a black or gray sweater with a cozy cardigan, or dress it up with a full brocade skirt for a New Year’s Eve party. Rely on accessories as well to change up your outfit.

Knit Cardigan

There is nothing better than cozying up in a warm, knitted cardigan when it’s below freezing outside and your office is also the same temperature. I love pairing thick cardigans with a dress and over the knee boots, or even a pair of high-waisted pants and a crop-top turtleneck.

As a petite woman, I need every inch of height I can get. I love ankle boots because they give me that extra hint of height and go with so many outfit combinations. Look for ankle boots with a thick heel for ultimate comfort.

Motorcycle Jackets

A good moto jacket should be a staple no matter the season. For that extra layer of warmth, put a black or gray hoodie on underneath. This piece looks great with ripped jeans and a white t-shirt, or even over a floor-length dress.

Chambray Shirt

Chambray shirts are some of my favorites to wear. This material looks great with cardigans, leather jackets, and a whole range of colors. Layer up and feel toasty warm in no time.

Camel Coat

Camel coats are a staple, and in my mind, will never be out of style. I’ve actually been intent on finding one that fits my petite frame, and found a few that inspired/made me salivate uncontrollably (kidding…sort of).

Statement Eyewear

Whether you need readers or sunglasses (or both), a statement set of frames is important all year round, especially in winter if you need a jazzy element to your #ootd.

Flannel Shirt

Another cold weather classic staple is the flannel shirt. Whether you want to invest in a thicker flannel or one on the thinner side, flannel comes in varieties of colors and materials.
