As the days start to finally get cooler I can start to plan out my cold weather outfits. Winter is my favourite time of year because, let’s face it, there is so much more you can do with winter clothes – the layering, accessorising, the cool shoes, socks, scarves. So here are a few of the outfits I will be wearing this winter. I’ve tried to keep everything fairly cheap and base the outfits around items most people will already have in their wardrobes.
Blake Lively, as much as I can’t stand her as an actress, knows how to do the perfect casual look. Keep it simple with leggings and a denim jacket, keep it on trend with combat boots and keep it fun with some cute and kitschy accessories. And the best thing about this outfit, besides the fact that it’s incredibly comfy? If you don’t own a denim jacket or if you want to mix it up a bit, simply swap the leggings for skinny jeans and the denim jacket for leather or a blazer. Presto! New outfit.

Rachel Bilson knows how to do casual with style. This is her version of an airport outfit, but I definitely think it translates into the perfect all situation winter wear. Of course, Rachel is about a foot shorter than I am so I might not be able to get away with wearing towering heels in an everyday situation, but replace the heels with some cute tan flats and it’s still a very stylish casual outfit.

Every now and then you come across a picture of some incredibly fashionable girl wearing an outfit that is the epitome of style. And you wish you were anywhere close to that level of stylish so that you could wear that outfit with any amount of confidence. I found this picture from Stockholm Street Style of the perfect way to wear light colours in winter. It’s all about mixing textures. In this case, the delicate lace of the dress with the soft fur gillet and buttery leather jacket. -C
