Cold Weather Fashion – Stay Stylish While Staying Warm

While Winter has its perks such as festive holidays and snow days, the seemingly endless cold temperatures can be a challenge. It is so easy to fall into a routine – the same fraying grey sweater, leggings, wool socks and motorcycle boots all season. The dreary weather can be uninspiring, but sunless days don’t have to mean dull style. After all, Fashion Week falls in February for a reason.

Here are some outfit ideas for your Winter occasions that will keep you warm and stylish at the same time.

Girl’s Night Out
Bar hopping with your girls doesn’t have to mean snow boots and a parka. Stay cozy with this cozy black cape from Maje ($371). These black bootie heels from Ron White ($425) aren’t just adorable, but they are lined with a layer of shearling to keep your dancing feet warm.
