Oversized White Button-Up Shirts
Being in style has never been so easy. The versatile oversized white button-up shirt looks fantastic with a maxi or mini skirt, jeans, or even leggings. It never looks like you’re trying too hard. Plus, a baggy shirt means you can eat as many holiday indulgences as you want without feeling self-conscious about your tummy.
The guys have been rocking this look for decades, so girls, give the men’s section a look! That oversized, “I just threw this on” look is here to stay.
Want to make it a little more fitted? Try a corset belt over the shirt. It cinches your waist and looks daring.
Keep those skinny jeans hidden far in the back of the closet this winter wide-leg trousers have solidified their place on top. Pick out wool or other thick fabrics for a look that is as warm as it is chic. Try out color blocking with trendy white trousers and a colorful top.
Retro wide-legged denim will bring you back to the disco dreams. Tailored-fit trousers can easily go from the office to after-hours cocktails. Pair them with a comfy crew knit top if you’re feeling cozy. A crop top and a structured jacket will look flirty for the night.
Academic looks are in style and loafers might just be the best punctuation for your outfit. Try sleek black loafers with gold decals with crisp white, ironed trousers for a polished look.
For a cute, girly look, try white socks with low-den tights and a black skirt. The sock and loafer look also looks fantastic with relaxed denim. Chunky platform loafers pair perfectly with cuffed trousers or pants cropped to above the ankle.
Long, Oversized Coats
This winter, stay warm with coats that envelop you completely while leaving plenty of space for layering. The best part is that they look good with any length of skirt or dress, as well as trousers.
Coats reaching to at least calf length with plenty of volume look mysteriously chic. A chunky scarf and cozy knit complete the look.
The grunge dress from the 90s has been upgraded for 2022. Long and slinky or short and flirty? You can rock both this winter!
This versatile dress can be dressed down for daytime wear with a slouchy, chunky cardigan. Try an open cardigan to elongate your frame or a cropped knit sweater to add an interesting silhouette.
Swap your sneakers for heels or platforms and leave the cardigan behind and voila, you have a slip dress perfect for an event or romantic dinner date.
Giddy up, cowboy boots have left the ranch and making their way through the cobble-stoned streets of Paris and Madrid.
Girly cowgirl aesthetic is everywhere now and heeled leather boots are taking center stage. Women are pairing their white ankle cowboy boots with maxi skirts and fringed dresses.
If you’re afraid of looking like you’re wearing a costume, then don’t have to go full country. Keep it casual and warm this winter by tucking them into bootleg jeans or go full retro with wide-legged dark denim and cowgirl boots peeking out.
Who says comfort can’t be stylish? Now that the ‘00s have taken over our wardrobes, UGGs are finally in vogue again.
For a quick trip to the grocery store, pair them with leggings or joggers. Want to look casual but still cute for drinks at the bar or coffee date? Pair ankle UGG boots or slippers with cuffed straight-leg jeans or a mid-length skirt.
