As the weather has shown us over the past couple of weeks, winter is not going anywhere any time soon. Downside? Cold, snowy conditions and travel plans made into nightmares. Upside? There is still plenty of time to get in on the best winter trends of this season and have plenty of time to wear them!
WIT & Whimsy editors pulled their favorite trends and specific designs within each trend category to help you get started where you may not have already done so yourself! And if you act quickly, you can grab some pretty stellar sale prices from many stores and online retailers.
Now get to it snow bunnies!
Let’s be honest. If you haven’t taken notice of all the legs of women rocking crazy fabulous tights and leggings this Fall and Winter, you’re not getting out enough! Read more about the trend overall and find some of the most fun options here. For the look we’re loving right now, it’s all about lacy, floral tights. Our favs are showcased here:
Sequins / Shimmer:
We previously posted on some of our favorite pieces to be sporting when glamming up your outfits this season with sequins galore and tons of shiny and shimmery pieces that are as eye-catching as they are fun. There are so many we love so we thought we’d share our latest editor obsessions seen here:
Find way more a-mazing minis in a previous post found here including a Haute Hippie sequin one to die for!)
This jacket screams Rachel Zoe and we think it’s perfect for throwing on over a simple top to take an outfit from day to night in an instant. Plus this fun one from BB Dakota retails at Piperlime.com for a reasonable $84.
We have the Lauren Merkin Eve clutch as seen here and still L-O-V-E it! You need one of these oh-so-darling clutches in your wardrobe STAT.
Over the knee boots:
If you’re like us, you feel as though one can never have enough stock in your closet when it comes to shoes. That’s why we have trouble packing to go anywhere because there are so many options!! This season, given all the wintery weather, we’ve been relying on our boots to get us through on a daily basis. Since each style can vary so much, we figure there is always room for one more, right? We don’t have a over-the-knee style yet, but see it in our future (and by future we mean, asap)!
These are classy and scream sophistication. You’ll have these boots forever (or until you wear them out because you love them that much!) and are great for pairing with skirts and dresses along with tucking your jeans into them for a more casual look.
We have a similar Steven by Steve Madden boot and can attest to the fact that you will ADORE these boots and want to wear them all the time as they are just so comfortable. The Iden style adds about two inches onto the height which we think could really amp up some outfits.
These boots are so simple, yet chic that we see miles after miles being walked in and traipsed across in for travels and even just commutes. The color is comfortable and relaxed and make this boot perfect for everyday wear or just your weekend go-to pair of boots.
A few years ago, when studs were popping up everywhere, we developed a complete aversion to them. Now they’re back, and thankfully this time with more subtly, and we’re loving them as a part of arm candy. Check out these gorgeous bracelets all embellished with studs and really reasonable prices.
