Cute Winter Outfits to Get You Inspired
Find an outfit based on these key winter clothing pieces that you may already own, or may decide you need in your winter wardrobe.
Long Coat Outfit
A long coat is the key to looking chic all winter long, especially if you find one in a neutral color like beige.
Though this type of coat looks stylish with just about any outfit, I love the way it elevates some trendy faux leather pants and a knit top.
Be sure to look for a coat with a belt in order to help cinch your waist for an extra-sleek look.

Puffer Coat Outfit
Nothing keeps you warm like a puffer coat does during the winter, and luckily, they’re super trendy, too!
Puffer coats are surprisingly versatile, but one of the best ways to wear them this winter is with a beanie hat, a sweater, straight-leg jeans, and chunky boots. This outfit is the perfect everyday winter look that is casual and functional.
Consider buying a puffer coat in a unique color like emerald green to make your outfits really stand out.
Basics don’t have to be boring! A longline puffer coat can spice up a basic long sleeve top and joggers in an instant.
You’ll feel super comfy in this laid-back look which also features a beanie hat and sneakers – I also love the way socks look scrunched up over the hem of the joggers for a street style vibe.

Athleisure outfits are one of my favorite things to wear all year round – you don’t have to give up your favorite activewear sets just because it’s cold outside.
Throw on a lightweight puffer jacket over your leggings and active tops, along with high socks and sneakers. If it’s really chilly add a scarf, gloves, and hat, too. This is our “Hot Girl Walk” uniform during winter months!
If your style is girly, you’re going to adore wearing a mauve eyelash knit sweater dress with white knee-high boots.
The feminine color is a total mood-booster and sure to stand out this winter, especially with fuzzy texture and turtleneck design.
Beanie Hat Outfit
A cute beanie hat can totally make a winter outfit, especially a colorful one with a pom-pom details!
This color-blocked beanie hat looks adorable with a sherpa jacket and your favorite denim. Just add some lace-up boots or snow boots for a go-to winter look.
Puffer Vest Outfit
Puffer vests never went out of style, but they’re an especially big trend this season.
Have fun with this piece by choosing a puffer vest in an eye-catching color, like light pink. It will add a pop of color to your outfits, and elevate basic items like jeans and a sweater. This padded puffer is ideal for more mild winter days, and you’ll be able to wear it all the way into early spring.
Dressy Casual Outfit
For a dressy, casual outfit that will also keep you warm, try wearing an off-the-shoulder sweater and dark-colored denim with black heeled ankle booties.
Elements like the off-the-shoulder neckline and dark wash of the jeans, along with the booties, give this ensemble a dressier vibe while still being laid-back. Don’t forget to add some cute jewelry like hoop earrings and a layered necklace for a little sparkle.
I love plaid in the fall and winter, and a plaid print faux fur sherpa jacket is going to spice up even the plainest of outfits.
By opting for printed outerwear, you can get away with wearing super simple, monochrome looks underneath and still make a fashionable statement.
Looking for a vibey outfit this winter? Try a cut-out sweater and some printed pants. This ribbed, mock-neck sweater has a body-hugging fit and a front cut-out that looks super cool with pants that have a retro-inspired print.
Turn up the vibes with a snake print shoulder bag for a mixed prints look that is funky and fun.
If you want to wear a mini skirt in the winter but don’t want your legs to freeze, you need some tights!
A pair of patterned tights will not only help to keep your legs warm, but they’ll also add a trendy, eye-catching element to your outfit. This pair features a tiny heart pattern that looks adorable with a black mini skirt, black heeled ankle booties, and a crop top for a winter night out look.

White Jeans Outfit
Embrace winter whites with white jeans and a white vegan leather coat for an almost-monochromatic look that is super chic.
This sherpa-lined coat is a standout piece that will “winterize” your white jeans while keeping you warm. Add a chunky knit sweater and beige ankle boots to complete the ensemble.
Boho Chic Outfit
If your style is boho, you’re going to want to invest in a printed cardigan sweater with flared sleeves for the winter.
Wear it over a body-hugging turtleneck top for warmth, along with jeans and ankle booties. A wide-brim hat, layered necklaces, and a crossbody bag add to the boho vibes of this outfit.
Winter Dress Outfit
If you’re going to wear a dress during the winter, make it a sweater dress.
A sweater dress is the ultimate dress option for keeping cozy and warm, while still looking cute! You’ll feel like you’re wearing an ultra-oversized sweater, which is about as cozy as it gets.
This particular sweater dress is made from a stretch-knit fabric and has a shift-style silhouette, giving you a comfy, roomy feel when wearing it. Yes, please!
Style your sweater dress with some knee-high boots or ankle booties, a long coat, and tights.
Edgy Hot Outfit
Want to look edgy hot during the cold seasons? Go for a faux leather mini skirt and cut-out long sleeve sweater top. For an ultra-edgy vibe, this faux leather mini skirt has a slit and crocodile print that give it extra edge.
Along with the cut-out sweater top, wear some knee-high heeled boots for this hot look. (You can add tights to beat the cold, too!).
Classy Winter Outfit
A classic plaid skirt with a cable knit sweater is a chic, classy look for the wintertime, especially with a structured beige coat worn over top. By adding some heeled ankle booties, this outfit is ideal for a dressier occasion.
Flannel Shirt Outfit
A flannel shirt is the perfect layering piece during the winter. You can style a flannel shirt many different ways, but one of the easiest ways is to layer it over a simple top to add some warmth (and fashion appeal).
Complete the ensemble with some straight leg jeans and lace-up boots, which are great everyday shoes for the wintertime.
Oversized Sweater Outfit
An oversized sweater is a total must-have in chilly weather!
While it always looks great with jeans, try styling your oversized knit with a pair of checked pants and lace-up combat boots for a trendy look.
Who doesn’t love a slouchy cardigan sweater on a chilly day?
If you want to step up your style, swap out your jeans for some faux leather pants and add a pair of chunky lug-sole loafers, which are a big trend this season. (You can also add socks for a warmer, yet still cool look!).
Maxi Dress Outfit
I found the most perfect maxi dress for the winter, and it’s actually a part of a set! This ribbed-knit maxi dress comes with a coordinating long cardigan sweater in the same color and material for a cute (and warm) look.
The best part about this set? You can wear both items all year round. The maxi dress is sleeveless, so you’ll be able to rock it in warmer seasons (minus the cardigan). And of course, you’ll be able to wear the cardigan with other outfits, too, making this set a total winner.
Faux Leather Pants Outfit
Faux leather pants are a must for the wintertime, especially in straight-leg styles this season.
One of the cutest ways to wear them are with ankle boots and a sweater. A slouchy turtleneck sweater is fab for daytime wear, while a tighter-fitting cut-out sweater is perfect for nighttime. The knit fabric complements the faux leather material for a textured look that is ultra fashionable.
Oversized Scarf Outfit
Oversized scarves are having a major moment this winter, especially scarves with checked or plaid prints.
Let your oversized scarf be the focal point of your outfit by opting for a scarf with a bright color scheme, like pastel blue and pink. Wear it with straight-leg jeans, a puffer coat, sneakers, and a baseball cap for a street style vibe.
Parka Coat Outfit
Wondering how to style a parka coat this winter? Try wearing it with a monochromatic outfit underneath for a sleek look.
This is a perfect opportunity to pull out your winter whites – jeans, turtleneck sweater, and booties – and let your parka coat add a pop of color to your ensemble. This olive green parka coat features a faux fur lining to keep you extra warm, and is wind and water-resistant, too.
Bodysuits make for the perfect base layer in the wintertime, and are a flattering way to keep warm thanks to their body-hugging fit.
A turtleneck bodysuit like this one is an essential item that you can dress up or down. Style it with a faux leather blazer, jeans, and booties for a chic look.
Leggings are a go-to during the wintertime, but just because they’re a basic doesn’t mean your outfit has to be boring!
Try styling your leggings with a beanie hat, puffer, jacket and some mid-calf boots with chunky treaded soles, which are a major trend this season. This outfit has a cool street style vibe, while still being comfy and warm – the ideal outfit combination.
Bonus points for rocking leggings that aren’t black, like this heather gray pair that come with a matching t-shirt.
Chambray Shirt Outfit
Wondering how to wear a chambray shirt during the wintertime? While these lightweight denim shirts are often a springtime staple, there’s no reason you can’t rock one in the winter, too.
Consider a chambray shirt in a darker denim wash, which you can wear with a floral skirt, tights, and chunky boots. Throw on your coat and a beanie hat, and you’ve got yourself a cute outfit.
P.S. – Chambray shirts also look super cute when worn over turtleneck tops.
Outfits for Winter Events
If you have a specific event you’re heading to this winter, check out these outfit ideas for inspiration.
For a Winter Party
Are you heading to a winter party? I’d suggest either wearing a sweater dress or faux leather pants with a cute top. This ruched velvet top is festive, and its heavier velvet fabric looks luxe while also keeping you warmer.
Be sure to fancy up your outfit with gold jewelry, a stylish belt, and heels or ankle booties. This would make a super cute Christmas outfit, too.
For the Snow
One of the best parts about winter has to be playing in the snow! Whether you’re hitting the slopes or just building a snowman in your backyard, you’ll need a warm coat while you’re outside braving the winter elements.
Go for a pop of color in the white snow with this red quilted puffer jacket. It features a water-resistant exterior (so that the snow won’t melt through it) and a hood, too. Plus, the interior is fleece-lined, making it ultra warm!
For the rest of your snow-ready outfit, wear a form-fitting base layer turtleneck top, some thick leggings or padded snow pants, and snow boots. A faux fur trapper hat adds a cute touch and is another great way to help keep you warm.

For a Winter Date
Dressing for a date in the wintertime can be tricky. How are you supposed to look (and feel) hot when you have to get dressed for the cold?!
Enter my favorite piece to wear on dates during the wintertime: faux leather pants. They have a sexy vibe while keeping you warm, and look amazing when paired with cut-out sweaters. Try an unexpected color like light brown faux leather pants for an extra-chic look that stands out. Add heeled booties, a cut-out sweater, a jacket, and a trendy purse for the complete winter date ensemble.
For Lounging Around
Everyone needs a cute lounge set in the wintertime. It’s the perfect outfit to wear when you want to feel cozy at home or while running errands.
This set includes a hoodie and wide-leg pants, both in a knitted material for added warmth. If you’re heading out and about, wear it with some sneakers, a beanie hat, and a puffer vest or jacket for a cute, coordinated look.
