Baby It’s Cold Outside: 7 Stay-Warm Outfits to Beat the Winter
The days are short, the wind is icy, and the nightly chills are leaving everything frosted by the morning. You can see your breath as soon as you step out on the porch, and you dread having to go out and scrape off the windshield in the morning. It’s wintertime and the cold is here in full force. What’s a warm-bodied person to do to stay that way?
Have no fear! Try out some of these warm outfit ideas and you should have no trouble beating the winter blues.
Long-Sleeve Sweater, Boots, and Jeans
If you’re looking for something casual and the temperatures aren’t subzero yet, you can go for something both stylish and sure to keep you warm against the dropping temperatures.
A long-sleeve open-front sweater will feel soft and keep you nice and snug, but also look good for those times you need something less than a heavy jacket.
You can hug the sweater around yourself for some extra warmth, or let it hang open when the winter sun is shining to remind people that staying warm and looking good aren’t mutually exclusive. Pair with some distressed jeans and your favorite boots to make sure winter never looked so good.
If the open-front sweater isn’t going to cut it, try a sweater dress. A midi dress gives you a little more cover than the sweater but lets you do so in a fun and stylish look. Turtleneck dresses also help keep you warm when it’s not the worst that winter can throw at you.
You can wear some heels with them for more fun and flirtier look, and maybe a scarf to add a bit of class to your sass. Or you can throw on some boots or sneakers for a solid yet trendy casual flair to your winter wear.
Say Hello to Faux-Fur and Goodbye to “Brrr!”
Faux-fur coats are lined with warm, soft material and give you that thickness that you need to endure those cold and snowy nights. With a lined faux-fur coat, you can look like a million bucks without costing that much, and the coats pair so well with any elegant outfit you wear.
Put one on over a shimmering maxidress to go to a winter event, or throw on some jeans, boots, hat, scarf, and a faux-fur coat to hit your favorite shopping venues.
One-piece denim jumpsuits give you the rugged look that also lets you fit in anywhere. You can wear them indoors and outdoors. If the snow is mounting, throw some boots and gloves on with your winter coat and go have a snowball fight, or feel free to go on that hike through your local winter wonderland park.
The nice part about the denim jumpsuits is that they’re versatile; you could just as easily throw a snug one-piece on while you’re out doing your holiday shopping to emphasize those assets or wear it while warming your hands at home near the fire.
Treat Yourself with Heated Clothing
Want to really beat that winter chill?
Try wearing some self-heating apparel! With a full line of heated clothing, you can find anything you need to make sure you stay nice and toasty no matter how cold it is outside, baby! A padded vest is perfect with a long-sleeve shirt when you just want to ward off the chilly winter breeze and look good as you do it.
A heated fleece jacket is better for those cold, cold nights, so you don’t have to be afraid to venture out after the sun goes down. You’ll feel like you were sitting indoors next to a mug of steaming cocoa, watching the chestnuts roast over an open fire.
Are you shopping, at work, or on a date? With the right winter outfit, you can look like you’re at home on all three. Try a long pastel coat in your favorite winter colors.
Throw it over a pair of darker boot-cut jeans with your favorite pair of ankle boots—try a lighter coat with blue jeans and white fur-lined ankle boots for a look that captures all the beauty of winter and none of the chill.
Looking fabulous even when the temps are near freezing isn’t just a way to keep warm, you’ll make it look like an art form.
It’s Cold Outside, Baby!
Don’t forget baby! Your child needs fresh air even when it’s chilly, but that’s okay because you can layer up baby in a way that always makes the others go “aww” and leaves the little one warm and snug. Baby winter clothes come in every variety you’ll need. Try a sweater, mittens, and a coat if it’s really cold, or a bunting that reaches baby’s feet.
Get some nice soft warm boots if needed, and make sure to get the stroller windscreen just in case the breeze decides to speak up for a second.
