Winter Style Guide: Cozy & Chic Outfit Inspiration
To feel like the ultimate hostess, opting for a stylish, yet relaxed outfit is a smart choice.
Make a Statement in a Monochromatic Look
A sophisticated monochromatic look is always a stylish statement. Wearing one-color from head-to-toe instantly has a slimming effect (which can be helpful after all those holiday sweets). From your top to your shoes, opting for a monochromatic look is an easy way to look chic without trying too hard.
Add a Little Edge with Leather
An effortless way to add a little edge to an ensemble is with a modern leather jacket. From moto jacket silhouettes to bomber styles, a leather jacket (like this rocker chic jacket by La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni) is always fashionable. Plus, it’s a great way to stay warm (even when it’s cold outside).
Razzle Dazzle with an Embellished Sweater
When you’re entertaining at home, you’ll want to look festive and feel relaxed. That’s why a sparkling embellished sweater (like the Michael Kors sweater shown here) is a gorgeous option. A basic cashmere sweater gets a fancy upgrade when adorned with dazzling crystals on the neckline and sleeves.
Go Back To Black with a Chic Bag
A contemporary leather clutch gets a feminine update with a frilly ruffled trim. A chic leather bag (like this one by La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni) is the perfect complement to any glamorous winter outfit.
Mix It Up with Modern Jewelry
Since an embellished sweater is the star of the show, it’s best to minimize the accessories. That’s why mixing it up with modern jewelry, like a gemstone-encrusted ring and hoop earrings (like this pair from Paul Morelli) is wise.
Get a Leg Up in Skinny Pants
To make your legs look longer and leaner, a pair of skinny pants (like these Derek Lam leggings) is a must-have. Plus, these versatile pants can be dressed up or down, making them an everyday essential. When you find a pair that’s meticulously crafted out of matte jersey (or a durable stretchy fabric), they have a shaping effect, which is always a plus.
Kick Up Your Heels
When entertaining at home, a pair of heels will instantly make you look polished and pulled-together. During winter, a great option is a pair of suede pumps, since this type of material is season-appropriate and always a classy look.
