Winter is, by default, the season of routine dressing. Once the temperature drops below freezing, our styling creativity seems to freeze over with it, and we find ourselves reaching for the same sturdy pieces day in and day out: a go-to pair of weather-proof boots, cozy knit sweaters, and plush, protective puffers. Needless to say, there are endless ways to get creative with a cold-weather wardrobe (especially when the more layers, the better), but once you’re stuck in a winter rut, it can be seriously hard to get out.
We’ve partnered up with H&M and five stylish women to share a few easy-to-execute (and timelessly-chic) outfit recipes to revive our winter dressing habits. From toned-down monochromes to luxe knitwear and cozy puffers, these five women show us exactly how to shake up our cold-weather wardrobes — all using the latest winter-ready pieces from H&M.com.
When winter simply means throwing a puffer over your otherwise standard year-round style — we’re looking at you, West Coasters — there’s plenty of room for cold-weather creativity. @OfficiallyQuigley makes a classic houndstooth sweater feel instantly modern by pairing it with an overall dress and knee-high boots.
A refreshing alternative to the mundane all-black winter outfit, @myfashionbreak is showing us how dressing in shades of brown — tans, camels, coffee-and-cream — is a fool-proof method for pulling together an effortless tonal look.
A classic camel robe coat is proving to be the true hero piece for every winter wardrobe, tying together and elevating even the most minimalist of looks. @LittleBlackBoots pairs hers with an all-white look and a statement over-the-knee boot.
When velvet and sparkles are trends foreign to your fashion vocabulary, opting for toned-down shades of sterling silver and white gold creates a look that — as @BrittanyXavier demonstrates — is understated and polished.
If your goal is to avoid all-black this winter, but nudes and camels don’t feel quite right, dressing in shades of grey is an easy-to-execute alternative that @ErikaAguileraa has on repeat for winter.
