Add a unique jacket

When it’s cold out, sticking to dark neutrals is usually the easiest. Everything goes together and you never have to worry about whether one piece matches the next. If this sounds like your style philosophy, consider adding a standout jacket to your look. This is a simple but effective way to breathe fresh life into an outfit, without venturing too far out of your style comfort zone.

Keep it classic with plaid

If stripes are for spring, then plaid is for winter. This quintessential cold-weather pattern evokes cozy vibes and is as versatile as it is stylish. The best part about a plaid shirt is that you can keep the rest of the outfit minimal—style it with a long-sleeve henley, straight-leg denim, and a sleek pair of boots. Dress it up with a long wool coat or dress it down with a puffer jacket.

Throw on a scarf

So you’ve combined all the elements of a perfect outfit—a nice sweater, structured coat, and great boots, too. You even have a pop of color! But if your outfit still seems to be lacking something, it might be time to introduce a functional accessory like a scarf. Depending on your vibe, either match the scarf to your coat, or go for a bold contrasting design to add dimension.
