Balancing glamorous trends with the cold reality of fall weather is an unusual challenge. But you can look forward to the comfy, cozy clothes that cool weather brings with this season’s winter-friendly trends that can keep you warm while looking hot.

Throwbacks

Pro: You’ll find a lot of potential throwback looks this season.
Con? There is no con!

From sheath dresses to classic furs and leather skirts, there’s a vintage look for everyone. Pair your throwback look with something modern — like a faux fur coat with some high-waisted jeans — for a perfect, well-rounded look.

Velvets

If you loved the luxurious velvet from last fall, do a happy dance — because velvet is back this season too! Choose jewel-tone velvets for this year’s look, instead of reaching for that soft millennial pink. Keep an eye out for rich blues, greens and reds especially. To ease into the trend, a cute velvet choker is a good place to start. Or if you’re a longtime lover of plush, pair your velvet cami with a leather jacket for the perfect night-out look.

Statement belts

Especially with chunky winter clothes, statement belts can both define your waist and add a whole new dimension to your outfit. A corset waist belt looks just as good on a comfy long-sleeve tee as it does with your warm shift dress. Remember when Kylie wore these last year and we thought it was a look only for celebs? Oops.

All wrapped up

Whether you’re buttoned-up, zipped-up or dolled-up, slightly oversize coats and jackets are go-to looks this season. Long blazers and chic waterfall parkas alike make it a functional look if you’re going to work or just heading over to your friend’s place. And your trench will be so loose and cozy, it can double as a blanket (#blessed). Pair it with some flats — even add a statement necklace for the extra “wow” — and you’re good to go.

It’s a wild, wild world

The western look of classic Americana always brings with it the struggle of trying not to look like a cowboy. Luckily, this season’s trends make that a bit easier to avoid. If you want an easy intro to the Wild West, just pair your denim jackets with some jeans. If you’re feeling a bit more risqué, go for some tassles and added embroidery.

Reds and silvers

Power reds and subtle silvers dominated the runway this year. To learn what colours everyone will be wearing this fall, look no further. Of course, classic jewel winters will be as popular as ever, but to elevate your look, add some silver sneakers to your outfit — or reach for a deep red sweater instead of your usual autumn mustard yellow. Pair anything red or silver with something more understated (like black) to let your statement hue shine.

Lingerie is a lifestyle

Not exactly an everyday look but still super cute, wearing lingerie as clothing is a trend that’s only grown over the past few months. Pair your lace black cami with a loose-fitting blazer and black jeans, and you’re ready for a night out. Looking for something a little more subtle? Pair a lighter and creamier-coloured top with a plunging neckline so that bits of your undershirt peek out — cute, on trend and understated.

Baby, it’s cold outside

Finally, a trend that even your mom will love: cozy clothes. Puffy coats and huge scarves are some of the cutest and most functional looks this season. One of the best parts about these looks are their versatility: Wear your soft knit sweater with a nice pair of slacks, and you’re all set for work. Oh my gosh, did we mention that they make warm winter dresses now perfect for scarves? Thank. God.

Sequins

Your inner child will be jumping for joy thanks to this glittery style. From sequined scrunchies to sparkly jackets, don’t be afraid of a little shine this winter. Scared of looking like you were attacked by a glitter glue monster? Start off small with an iridescent choker.
