Temperatures in many parts of the country are hovering between frigid and must-wear-a-blanket, but sassy moms know there’s always warmer weather ahead to try out their favorite winter fashion trends. We’ve collected five trends that range from cozy to skin baring, but that’s why they invented tights — and plane tickets to California.
Trend 1: Oversized sweaters with details
There’s nothing like a sweater and the perfect pair of skinnies for everyday winter fashion, but wearing sweaters day after day can begin to feel stale. Trendy sweaters abound this season, but if you’re not sure about the popular logo and animal trends popping up, dial the style down to the details. Try an asymmetrical hem or unexpected stitching details — and don’t forget to make sure you’re buying something in a toasty, natural fiber.
Trend 2: Stacks of cuffs
Oversized cuffs or stacks of dainty bangles make a style statement, but stacks of cuff bracelets are a stylish alternative this winter. In order to keep your bracelets from becoming costume-like, choose more delicate cuffs — think of them as chunky bangles — and mix and match them in interesting ways. Try punk and feminine cuffs in the same metal or a collection of mixed metals in a similar style.
Trend 3: Bright minis
Minis in the midst of winter? Yes, please! With countless combinations of boots and tights available to keep your legs warm, a bright mini is an unexpected pop of color. This is a trend that will go as far as you dare. Stick with a solid jewel tone, try a rainbow shade in a textured material, or find a pattern you absolutely adore.
Trend 4: Fringed purses
Fringe is fashion-friendly again, and bags are the obvious place to break in its return. The boho-feel works well with a cross-body bag, but if you’re not ready to work fringe into your everyday wear, try it in a fabulous clutch for your next night out. It adds great visual interest to even the simplest outfits.
Trend 5: Caged heels
Caged heels are an unexpected choice for winter fashion, but warmer climate residents will love the way the cut-out heels look perfect with jeans without risking the heat of a pair of boots. If you want to try the trend in cooler climates, try one of the hybrid versions that use the cage detail sparingly, allowing them to work well with tights.
