Winter is just getting started, and although it can be the least inspiring season to dress for, don’t let the cold weather prevent you from putting your best foot forward. One of the ways I like to shake things up is by mixing of-the-moment trends with the basics – like a turtleneck sweater or faux leather leggings. The combination always yields a chic yet still forward look that turns heads. If you’re one to gravitate towards hiqh-quality staples over trends like me, then simply focus on the trends with longevity. I know how tricky it can be to differentiate the two at the rate fashion moves these days, so I wanted to share 5 of the winter trends I’ll be wearing throughout the colder months of 2023.

All Things Sherpa/Shearling
All things faux shearling and sherpa have blown up in recent years. You can now find it in a variety of styles from jackets to boots to accessories. I’m obviously a fan and love it for the added warmth and comfort. Not only that but it’s a great way to add a stylish and luxurious touch to any outfit. The trend has been embraced by both high-end and fast fashion brands, which is proof it won’t be going away anytime soon.
I couldn’t be more excited for the recent craze around Uggs. Living in Minnesota, I’ve always embraced them for their practicality and comfort. Now that they’ve become a full fashion sensation, I don’t have to think twice about throwing them on. I have the classic tall boots and scooped up the minis when I found them in stock a few months ago. They’ve become a fixture in my daily outfit rotation as of late.

Ski Chic Attire
Another winter trend that won’t be slowing down is the apres ski chic aesthetic. Think stylish clothing and accessories that can transition from the slopes to a more social setting. You probably already have several of these pieces in your wardrobe, such as puffer jackets, chunky knit sweaters, fleece-lined boots, and beanies.
Faux fur is officially back and better than ever! Whether you layer up in a fancy coat or plush vest, faux fur is possibly the most fabulous way to bundle up this winter. Just throw it on top of your outfit and you’re good to go.
Perhaps the newest piece on this list is the coat scarf, which is essentially a coat with a built-in scarf. I love the dual-purpose design, especially having a scarf that I don’t have to worry about losing. Typically, the scarf is long enough to wrap around the neck and drape down the front of the body. This creates a layered effect that looks so chic with everything you wear it with.
