Bodysuit + Skirt + Boots Outfit

This is also a great transitional outfit. Just throw on a coat if needed for an extra layer.

A Gorgeous Statement Skirt + Outerwear
Maxi skirts are perfect for combining style and warmth. A long skirt adds instant elegance and acts as a barrier against the outside elements.

Sweater vests can be plain or patterned and are easy to style. Throw it on over your favorite white button-down and style with some jeans. Add a hat and some cute boots and you’ve got a stylish and easy winter outfit idea.
A Cutout Sweater Dress + Boots

A Winter Suit
Women’s suits can often be quite limited in style. But, if you find one that suits you, they are great for layering up and looking smart.

A Cordouroy Skirt
This corduroy skirt is a great winter outfit idea that comes back in style season after season. I own a similar one (also in green) and wear it with ankle boots or knee-high boots like this look.
Super Casual Layers
Casual wear is also great for layering up. Wearing a top under a hoodie under a coat will keep you warm and still look cool.
For a fancy or formal event, velvet is definitely the way to go. Or, just add a velvet jacket with your jeans for some semi-formal warmth.

Sweater Dress + Scarf Ouftit
Winter hats don’t have to be knitted. They can still be formal or stylish.
Top With a Poncho
Another essential winter layering piece is a cute poncho like this one. You can use this as a second layer over a sweater dress, styled with jeans and a cute top or wear with your favorite pair of leggings.
The Teddy Coat
If faux fur isn’t your thing, try a teddy coat like this one. They are just as warm (and sometimes even warmer) and more casual too.
The Holiday Sweater Dress
A red dress for the holiday season is always a good idea! And this sweater dress I grabbed from Amazon is a great one. You can style it with heels or add some boots for extra warmth. I also wore this for our family Christmas photos.
