What’s Trending for Winter
The weather’s colder and the holiday party circuit is in full swing, which means it’s time for a winter wardrobe refresh. I’ll be the first to admit that my personal style is pretty streamlined. I live in tonal shades, simple silhouettes, and my go-to accessories. But as trends come in and out, I like to incorporate little hints of them into my every day style. And the trends for winter 2019 are especially good.
From bold animal prints to luxe leather, winter’s coolest trends offer up something for everyone.
To me, there’s nothing better than a bold animal print. Whether it’s a wild tiger or luxe zebra print, I’m a big believer that animal prints are statement-making in all the right ways. And right now, animal prints are making an appearance in high-end and fast fashion brands across the board. Right now, I’m pairing animal prints with basics for a subtle nod to the trend.

Preppy and polished, pinstripes are often associated with old-school wall-street, banker style. But these days, this masculine trend is more now than ever. Designers are crafting tailored suits that look incredibly sexy with a lacy bra and a sky-hair pair of stilettos.

While ‘70s fashion typically consists of bohemian prints and billowy blouses, this season, it’s more about that super-cool neutral color palette and layers of different textured fabrics. Think a furry jacket with a silk scarf and some leather skinnies for the most striking combo.

I’ve always loved a good leather jacket, but this season, leather is showing up on everything from dresses to pants to accessories and I’m loving every minute of it. What I really love about leather is that it’s so easy to dress up or dress down. Like today – I paired my favorite leather jacket with skinnies and a tee for the day and styled it with a flowy dress in the evening for dinner with Matt. It’s the ultimate in versatility.

Futuristic and perfect for the holidays, metallic pieces are trending hard right now. From sleek sparkly numbers to glistening gold get-ups, there’s something for everyone when it comes to metallics. While they can be a bit intimidating at first, I recommend balancing out a metallic piece with a basic for the coolest combination. Once you’re comfortable, feel free to go all out.

Slinky and sexy, silk is having a major moment right now. But instead of sticking to silks at night, I’ve been pairing my favorite silk dresses over a fitted long sleeve tee or with a pair of vintage sneakers for a cool off-duty look. For nighttime, style a silk piece with a leather jacket for equal parts elegant and edgy.

For winter, I’m loving a functional hiking boot – to be honest, I always love it but especially right now. Ideal for weekdays, weekends, and beyond, hiking boots are not only great for less-than-ideal weather, but they’re also the perfect mix of fashion and function. Style them with distressed jeans and a chunky sweater for the perfect cold-weather look.
