There’s nothing more perfect than an adventurous coat to complete your outfit in the winter. These days, I’m all for a bold color you wouldn’t expect me to wear, an interesting texture or a forward silhouette. Express has options that tick all those boxes from cool-girl puffers to cozy teddy coats. If your style leans more classic, then you need this wrap coat I’m wearing today. It comes in virtually every color. I already have the white, gray and camel but wanted the red one for the holidays.

Sweaters & Layering Basics

Nailing a stylish yet practical winter outfit is no easy feat. However, I find that the right sweater or base layer makes it significantly easier to sprinkle in trends in a way that feels just right with sub-zero temperatures outside. A mock neck top like this looks incredibly chic under a statement coat while this fuzzy sweater brings in textural dimension.

Faux Leather Pants & Leggings

Although I basically live in denim throughout the year, I oftentimes prefer something more comfortable in the winter. That typically equates to leggings, joggers or trousers. Express makes it super easy to get creative! Faux leather leggings in a neural color outside of black is a solid option this season. I’m especially loving this pair with the split hem.

Holiday Dressing

One of the highlights of winter dressing is going the extra mile for the holidays. There aren’t many opportunities in the year to experiment with pieces you wouldn’t typically wear, so I love using this time to spice things ups. A red on red ensemble oozes all the Christmas feels but is still so classy. Express also has plenty of glitzy styles that will help you ring in the new year.
