3 Easy (And Non-Boring) Looks To Wear In The Cold

Share

Cold weather makes for lazy dressing a lot of the time. Conjuring up an exceptional outfit when your limbs are numb isn’t exactly easy. Instead, one often defaults to a functional formula: a snuggly knit and jeans, an extra-warm coat and, of course, all the cozy accessories. If this sounds like you, snap out of it! Assembling a striking look in the cold is painless with the help of a few bold pieces. Think simple silhouettes in interesting textures or rich colors that elevate all forms of denim. Here, we lay out three denim-based outfits that read anything but dull. It’s not about reinventing the wheel; these formulas are just illuminating it.

Non-Boring Winter Outfits

If inclement weather isn't on your radar (that is, you live in LA), a patent trench is perfect for a mild chill. Wear it over a simple black knit, vintage-wash jeans and black ankle boots and your look is edgy and impactful. For extra interest, add a bold earring.

Bundling up is exciting when a multi-colored coat is part of the equation. Go for a textured check and pull out the most unexpected shade from the pattern to highlight using a turtleneck paired with black denim. Patent leather boots, a structured bag and a stackable gemstone ring make for an effortlessly eye-catching finish.
