This winter, take a hint from Alexandra of Lovely Pepa and get comfy and cozy. Slip into your favorite pair of kicks for a no-fuss outfit, but don't forget to accessorize! We love this camo-print bag for both winter and spring.
If you haven't jumped on the cape bandwagon, now is the perfect time to do so. This draped sweater pairs perfectly with your favorite jeans. As Blair of Atlantic-Pacific does, keep the rest of your look monochromatic so your cape makes the statement.
One of the best ways to elevate your dull winter look is with lace-up heels. This pointed pair makes quite a style statement, plus they elongate Helena’s legs, creating a chic outfit anyone could wear.
Over-the-knee boots are a winter must-have. If you don’t own a pair, we highly suggest you invest in this stylish trend. Tall boots like the ones worn by Jacey of Damsel in Dior can totally transform your winter style.
We can always count on Annabelle of Viva Luxury to inspire our style, and this outfit does just that. Her plaid coat makes quite the statement paired with an all-black ensemble. Don’t forget a pair of bold, white sunnies to finish off your look.
An easy way to get out of your style rut is to start incorporating spring trends into your winter looks. Danielle of We Wore What is rocking one of the hottest runway trends for spring 2015—fringe! If you’re hesitant to go full-on fringe, try incorporating it into your accessories like bags and shoes.
If you’re bored with your look, wrap yourself in an oversized scarf. It’s an easy way to add a cozy layer and some serious dimension to your look. Kimberley of Eat Sleep Wear kept her look mostly neutral but added a swipe of lipstick to brighten up her outfit.
Pile On the Layers
Take your winter style from drab to fab by adding layers of different textures and fabric weights as Liz of Late Afternoon does. To mix up your vibe, try adding some menswear-inspired oxfords or loafers.
If you’re looking to add a dose of glam to your life, give fur a go! Faux-fur coats like this white one worn by Serena of The Spicy Stiletto instantly create a badass look you can’t help but love.
Plaid scarves are a huge hit this season. They’re a great option if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to accessorize any look. Lauren of Lolo Mag keeps her outfit fairly monochromatic, letting the plaid really pop.
Play with Texture
We understand if you’re bored with plaid, done with denim, and over oversized sweaters, but have you tried feathers?They’re a fun way to step up your texture game without falling back on old favorites. Stylist Kat of With Love From Kat mixes two textures: leopard and feathers.
A Winter & Spring Mix
If you’re craving warmer weather, try mixing up winter and spring styles as Julia of Gal Meets Glam does here. Julia blends soft spring pastels with dark winter fabrics like leather and suede. It’s the best of both worlds!
Sneakers are all the rage right now, which means sporty accessories aren’t just comfy—they’re chic. And what’s better than that? Jessica of What I Wore kept her entire look fairly athletic, but you can try mixing this masculine style with feminine touches. Picture these sneakers with leather pants or even a dress or skirt!
Brighten up your dark winter style with crisp white. This fresh, effortless color worn by fashion guru Devon Rachel is an instant pick-me-up as your wardrobe inches closer to springtime colors.
Pretty & Persian
Jessie of Seams For Desire is channeling Persian pretty in this winter outfit. You’d be surprised how much a black bow tie can polish off an outfit.
Aimee of Song of Style has nailed casual-cool style. Sometimes a pair of skinnies and a simple tee work perfectly with a few added accessories. We also dig her military-inspired jacket, which is a major spring 2015 trend.
Keep It in the Family
Make a power statement this winter in a bold look like this one on Wendy of Wendy’s Lookbook. Mixing hues of the same color family creates a commanding look that is perfect for work and play.
Monochromatic & Cozy
If you’re in need of a few winter outfit ideas, turn to Julie of Sincerely, Jules. There’s nothing prettier than a cozy monochrome look finished off with a punchy print.
Amber of Barefoot Blonde is one of the most stylish mommies out there. Follow in her snowy footsteps, and create a look that’s perfect for winter’s cold weather. A beanie, a parka, and snow boots create an ideal outdoors look.
While suede is common in fall and winter, you can look forward to the fabric hitting shelves this spring. Get a jump-start on your spring style like Christine of Hello Fashion Blog by working suede fabrics into your outfits—think skirts and boots.
Denim For Days
Create a modern version of the ’80s denim-on-denim trend as Mary of Happily Grey did. The key to making this work is having at least two different denim washes. Take a hint from her, and add a bit of fancy to this rugged look with a pair of pointed-toe pumps.
