Just because you’re not a fat man with a beard or a reindeer with a red nose doesn’t mean you can’t look fly this December. When the fashion world is moving as fast as Santa’s sleigh (and, if you do the math, that’s really fast), it can feel impossible to keep up with the latest trends.
But fear not—your go-to guide to looking cool during this chilly season is here. For the top five winter fashion trends you should get a ho ho hold of, check out this list.
#1 Oversized Puffer Jacket
Popularized most recently by the incomparable Billie Eilish, the oversized puffer jacket trend isn’t going anywhere. This warm piece is the coolest thing you could be wearing right now, especially when paired with some rocking platform shoes and nylon pants.
The more oversized, the better. Bonus points if your puffer is in a crazy color like blood red or neon yellow. This trend proves that you don’t have to be on the naughty list to be a baaad guuuy.
#2 Sweater Dress
Moving on to another oversized trend, this one is for the girl-ier baddies out there looking to stay cozy while still showing some leg. 10 Deep’s hoodies in a size or two up are perfect for this trend, especially when paired with suede thigh-high heels and a sleek pony. Believe us; this look will have Queen Ari herself turning her head.
#3 A Classy Wristwatch
Even though the trend right now is streetwear, fashionistas today are more than ever mixing grunge with put-together classics to complete their looks. That means pairing ripped jeans and mesh shirts with a sleek timepiece—what is referred to as “drip” by the kids these days. Vincero men’s watches are great choices for anyone wanting to ball out while still keeping it classy.
#4 Faux Fur Bucket Hat
If you aren’t on TikTok, you probably haven’t caught on to just how addictive this trend is. Also, if you aren’t on TikTok, stay off it—that app is a black hole.
This fuzzy accessory takes any outfit to the next level. Top off a tube top and flattering joggers with this baby, and you’ll have that Insta baddie look down pat! For an extra flair of cool, get it in leopard print or millennial pink—you’ll be ready for your big Internet break in no time. Now, to learn some TikTok dances…
#5 Vintage Plaid Vests
If streetwear isn’t your style, don’t worry; there are still plenty of winter looks that you’ll love. Channel your inner Blaire Waldorf this season and embrace the preppy look (and add in some Christmas colours as a festive plus).
Here’s the look:
- A comfortable vintage vest in sophisticated forest green and maroon plaid.
- Pair it with a nice, long-sleeved billowy white blouse.
- Wrap a glamorous neckerchief and headband for preppy perfection.
- And last (but certainly not least) top it all off with a high-quality blazer and long trench coat for a look that screams, “do you know who my father is!? Just wait till I tell daddy about you! Hmph.”
- Oh, and don’t forget the knee-high socks and heeled Mary Janes.
Rock Your Closet with Christmas Confidence
Nothing complements a stellar wardrobe better than some killer confidence. If your budget won’t allow for more than one or two additions to your winter closet—don’t worry! Self-confidence is free; you just gotta will yourself to have it. So, step into this season with that winning smile and a twinkle in your eye, and you’ll be turning heads with your fashionable fierceness.
Work, girl (or guy)!
