Spotlight: Top 10 Fall/Winter Trends for Women (01-05)
So the weather’s getting colder, and of course you want to dress appropriately, but it is not necessary to look like the Michelin man. Of course there are the usual tights, sweaters and boots as winter trends, but the trends for this winter are absolutely hot and different. As you know if you live in the Northeast, the weather here can be brutal at times. If you live somewhere slightly warmer, wear lighter layers and anywhere colder (I.e Maine) definitely wear heavier layers. As this is mainly a guideline, welcome to the first half of the Ten Trends to Keep You Looking Hot in Freezing Weather
Comfortable, Warmer than normal jeans and Stylish. Why wouldn’t one desire a pair?. Cords are a huge staple in one’s wardrobe this winter. They come in almost every color, every style; Their versatility only adds to their appeal. There’s no way that someone cannot find a pair of corduroys to match their style, they even have corduroy skirts!.
The outfit I created above is based around the Jade colored cords. Since Jewel tones are in for this winter as well, I decided to incorporate that in with my outfit. I then chose a regular white tank top, then added the cream colored thick sweater cardigan. This keeps the colors basic and keeps the focus on the cords. I then added a brown scarf for warmth, tan boots which are both practical and stylish. An owl necklace and dangling earrings were added for fun.
When you think of fur, you inevitably think of warmth in the coldest weather. Well, this is what this trend is about, warmth and style. Faux Fur is truly in because its both animal friendly and keeping with the winter fur trend. You can incorporate this trend in almost all of your everyday outfits from huge fur vests to small fur earmuffs.
For this outfit I chose a leopard print vest, and paired it with ripped black skinny jeans and a white thermal shirt. I wanted the vest to stand out, so I chose basic colors. I then added black sneakers with pink details to give it a more street style look. As accessories, I added a wing necklace and gold studs to keep the punk street style.
In this outfit, I chose a pair of Fair Isle tights and a Fair Isle print scarf. I then paired the two with a cream colored sweater tunic, to break up the print. I then added silver bangles and silver hoops as silver went well with the black and white combo. To finish off the look , I added flat black booties.
For this outfit, I chose a pair of grey fair isle print long socks. I then added a grey sweater and blue skinny jeans to keep the look basic and fresh. I added brown boots to give a little color . For accessories I added a grey scarf and a charm bracelet with black and grey accents.
Long Maxi Dress/Skirt
For this outfit, I chose a basic grey maxi dress. To add color and to accentuate the waist, I added a red bow belt. Then for accessories I chose a red leopard print scarf and red earrings. For the shoes, I chose a Jeffery Campbell Lita in black.
