Styling Denim into Winter
winter is coming, for sure and when it comes to styling during the coldest season, I find myself struggling a lot. winter can be very dramatic and very cold here. icy winds, temperatures below -10 as well as frozen lakes and snow. its beautiful and I’m certainly grateful that I get to experience all the seasons where I live, it makes not looking like a marshmallow as soon as its getting colder very hard. I won’t lie to you, during the really cold days I refuse to wear anything but my huge winter coat and either ugg boots or the fur-lined doc martens but when moving slowly into winter, I try my best to keep my styling game strong and warm at the same time. denim is a must for me all year round but moving into winter, its basically the only thing I want to wear as I find denim very comfortable, high-waited off course, and it keeps my legs warm as well as being easy and versatile to style around looking good and not freezing to death.
1. Perfect Denim
There was a time when I refused to wear jeans. I thought they were uncomfortable, restrictive and not very flattering and looking back, I feel like I haven’t found the perfect denim fit back then because now, its all I want to wear and denim became my safety blanket, it just always works. High-waisted jeans is a must for me and these days, I like going for quite thick denim and even though I like a pair of mom jeans in the summer, straight leg or skinny is my choice as soon as it gets colder. There are many options for affordable denim but investing can be just what you want. As for colour; I either go for blue jeans or straight up black. you can shop some of my faves from trilogy here
2. The Coat
I like to confess that I have a serious coat addiction. They are my favourite clothing piece to buy and to wear and to be fair, I have to wear one 90% of the year and I like to have fun with them and really make them the focus of my outfit. Whilst I find certain coats don’t work with dresses or skirts I have, denim and a good coat, no matter the colour or style always works wonders. I went for this very fun checkered coat for my distressed blue jeans but a tailored black or military-inspired coat would look so chic with black jeans and truly pull the whole look together and go from quite casual, which my outfit totally is, to work appropriate.
3. The Jumper Game
I love to wear playful and really feminine shirts but when it’s getting colder, I have to go for a jumper and I have loads of them and I love wearing them all. From very basic ones in neutral tones to fun and thick knits. They are essential for me and for work, I like to go for high-quality materials but basic colours and designs. For a more casual look, I still prefer neutral colours but with a twist. this h&m one is so soft and white just works for me all the time but the back detail is what makes it fun and exciting for me. its one of my favourites.
4. Don’t Freeze
As much as I love styling my outfits ahead, sometimes it won’t happen the way in wanted it too because its too cold or too rainy so adding an extra layer or changing into something to fit the climate can be necessary. A pair of thermals works wonders under a pair of jeans as well as layering when it comes to jumpers and shirts. investing in a good paid of denim to keep you warm instead of having icy legs is a must sometimes.
