Now that the winter season is almost upon us, it is time to go through the closets and see what last year’s winter fashions can still be worn, and what needs to be added. Hardly a season goes by when a woman decides to not add anything, for even just one new addition can give the wardrobe a whole new look. Items such as a coat or scarf will get daily wear. Colors that resemble sunlight-reflected snow are popular, along with basic black, shades of gray, and blue. Take a look at what appeals to stylish women this upcoming winter season:
Lace can feel warm without being heavy with this comfortable sweater by Malene Birger. The color is listed as salmon/cream, but I think it looks like the color of snow when the sun sets. Match this with a button-down shirt from your wardrobe this winter. Personal shirt color choices: light blue or green. Available from Milk for $431.64.
Pea coats are a classic which never go out of style. Women who consider themselves to be stylish will usually have a pea coat in their wardrobe. This Savannah pea coat is designed by ALC and has the double-breasted button front, along with horizontal and vertical slip pockets. There is plenty of pocket space for a watch, compact, and some change. Available from Bergdorf Goodman for $895.00.
The one nice thing about black leggings is that they can be worn under shorts, caftans, skirts, and dresses during the winter season. Designed by David Lerner, these Core leggings are form fitting, made of a nylon/spandex blend, and will keep your legs warm on the coldest days of the year. Available from Saks Fifth Avenue for $90.00.
Gray may naturally be associated with winter days but on a stretch sheath dress, it’s perfect. In fact, the asymmetrical design at the neckline in this dress from Caché and the shimmering gold combined with ruching is perfect for a holiday party. You don’t have to worry about the gold in this dress outshining the Christmas tree. Available from Caché for $158.00.
Blue and black plaid pleated skirts may remind some women of their days back in parochial school, but in the world of fashion, can be worn during any season. Match this skirt with a white, pale yellow, or pale blue blouse. The skirt also comes in pink and gray or red and black, but I prefer blue. Available from Bedford Fair from $39.99 to $44.99.
Finally, you will want a pretty scarf to keep your neck warm. A chevron pattern scarf in silver gray and white will go with lots of winter colors: black, blue, green, and red. Sequins are woven into the fabric for an extra touch of sparkle. Designed by Calvin Klein, this acrylic/polyester blend knit scarf is a sure fire popular item this upcoming winter season. Available from Macy’s for $48.00.
