Now that winter is in full swing, you probably just want to curl up on your couch in a warm sweater, your favorite pair of leggings, and fuzzy slippers, but as moms, we all recognize how difficult it is to actually find the time for that. However, just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean you have to just stick to sweaters and leggings for winter. There are plenty of cute women’s outfits that are great for the cool weather months. Here’s a practical mom’s guide to winter fashion with ideas for outfits that are warm, practical, and stylish!
1.Create a Capsule Wardrobe
One way to create a practical winter wardrobe as a mom is to create a capsule wardrobe. You can have one for each season. For winter, use cozy and functional pieces that will make it even easy for you to get up and go, even when the temperatures are below freezing. When shopping for women’s clothing for winter, keep in mind these important tips for your capsule look. You’ll want clothing that is comfortable and functional but at the same time will reflect your style. Just because the early 2000s is coming back into fashion doesn’t mean that you need to wear a matching velour tracksuit or low-rise jeans this winter to get “the look.” As an alternative, wear something you’ll love wearing every season, no matter the decade.
2.Do a Monochromatic Look
One easy way to look polished this winter with little effort is to wear the same color from head to toe? If you want a sleek black monochromatic look, you can wear a black turtleneck, black vest, and skinny black jeans. Add on a pair of black boots and a black crossbody bag to finish the look. Another fun accessory you can add is a pashmina shawl or scarf. According to Mental Floss, a pashmina shawl comes from the neck and underbelly of a goat. It’s a super cozy scarf that adds instant warmth to any look. Keep the monochromatic look by getting a scarf or shawl in the same color as the rest of your outfit.
3.Jeans and a Cardigan
If you’re looking for a holiday look you can wear anywhere, from your friend’s Friendsgiving to your mom’s annual Christmas party, there are few women’s holiday clothes that will do just the trick, like jeans, and a cardigan will. There are so many ways to play around with the jeans and cardigan outfit. Try wearing skinny jeans, a black tank, and a long patterned cardigan with over-the-knee boots. Go for jeans with a tunic top and a neutral-toned cardigan. Accessorize with a wraparound scarf and riding boots.
4.Jeans and a Bomber Jacket
Add a little attitude to any look by pairing jeans with a bomber jacket. Try a pair of dark jeans with a bright-colored bomber jacket and ankle booties. You can also go for flat boots if you prefer something more comfortable or low-heeled. Add on fun accessories like a crossbody bag or sunglasses to help keep your look fresh. If a bomber jacket isn’t really your style, try different women’s outerwear, like a bright purple blazer or brown leather jacket, to make your outfit pop.
5.Jeans and a Sweatshirt
Few things are as reliably cozy as a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt. When wearing a sweatshirt, you don’t have to stick to the neutral-toned grayish sweatshirt that you usually wear to the gym or when you just need to throw something on before you head out the door. There are plenty of fun graphic sweatshirts. Play around with different colors and patterns to see what suits you, and can bring some cheer this winter season.
6.Graphic Sweatshirt and Rib Knit Pants
Speak of graphic sweatshirts, try pairing this top with rib knit pants. Rib-knit pants are a great option for anyone looking to add a different texture to their everyday look. This cool and cozy outfit is the perfect ensemble for when you want to get up, get ready, and stay warm when you’re going about your day this winter.
7.Leggings and a Tunic
Pairing leggings and a tunic is a simple ways to get an everyday winter outfit. To style your leggings and tunic look, wear a longer tunic with a longer pair of leggings. That means you don’t want to be wearing cropped or capri leggings this winter. It won’t keep you as warm, and the tunic will look better with leggings that come down to your ankles. You can also layer up with a vest over your tunic.
8.Faux Leather Leggings with a Vest
For a dressier look with minimal effort, try faux leather leggings with a vest. The faux leather leggings will have that sleek look of leather without having to be made from real leather. You can layer a vest over a button down or another long-sleeved top like a turtleneck and then try accessorizing with a slouchy knit beanie and scarf for extra warmth.
