  • 7 Winter 2023 trends to keep you warm & stylish 

Is winter a season to showcase your fashionable side? Yes! If you're leaning towards a 'no' and bringing out those heavy jackets, dark denim, and gloves, wait up; we have something for you. While layering plays a key role in keeping oneself warm, there are ways in which you can spruce up your style for the cold weather. The key here is to invest in winter 2023 trends that may never go out of style. From long black jackets and metallic prints for your Christmas and New Year parties to clutch bags that you can keep all year long, here are some winter trends that you can incorporate into your wardrobe:

Make a statement with long black coats

Wednesday Addams sure did bring back the Long Black Coat era on the ramp, with many designers showcasing different ways one could wear their black coats this winter. While one might think black is too solid a colour, giving a morbid vibe, this trend, if worn right, can be reused year after year during this time. These long black coats will complement dresses, jeans, and trousers' look. If you're not into monochrome, add a colourful scarf or adorn a statement earring to break the monotony. This way, you're wearing two trends at once!

Ramp up with hourglass silhouettes

While staying indoors, you are all about wearing comfortable clothes and layering, but add some hourglass silhouettes to showcase your fashionable side. From corseted tops, dresses, peplum styles, bustiers, or structured jackets or tops around your waist, this trend fits both slim and curvaceous body types. Wearing a comfortable fit and adding a thick leather belt around your waist will also do the trick if you are not the corsetry type of woman. This classic Hollywood style is sure to withstand the test of time.

Experiment with metallic

When you think of winter fashion, soft fabrics are the first to come to mind. But how about adding a bit of sass by wearing metallic? We know they're a risky trend to try, but if chosen carefully, you could ace the look. And the key here is not to wear them only for parties; style them for everyday looks as well. Pair your low-tone sequined top with a plain skirt, or wear metallic pants with a muted-tone top. And, of course, bring them out for Christmas and New Year parties. Just keep in mind the accessories and shoes you pair them with.

Cropped jackets for winter

You might be wondering, "why?" But trust us, cropped jackets add plenty of chic and style to your look. Of course, keep in mind the weather conditions when choosing to wear them. But cropped jackets in various fabrics, when paired with trousers, skirts, or dresses, bring a fun side to your look. Cropped jackets bring out various moods – you can go for a feminine look, grunge style, or even keep it simple and wear them all year long. They're too cute to miss this winter!

Moody dark florals for the season

By now, we all know that florals are for all seasons. But how do you wear them for winter? Hmm… create a moody tone by opting for darker floral print outfits. Of course, there are plenty of options, like layered floral blouses, pants, dresses, long skirts, and more. To complete the look, do not accessorize with summery sandals and totes; instead, wear them with boots and stockings (all in a shade darker) and pair them with smaller bags and clutches. You will thank us for bringing a welcome change to your otherwise monochrome outfits during winter.

Clutches for the win

Say goodbye to big tote bags made of straw and bring out the classic clutch bags for the season. They're cute, handy, and hold only the important things you need for the day. While layering during winter adds much weight to your look, carrying a big bag will only obliterate the winter fashion look. You'll look like a sack carrying those heavy weights around your winter outings. Instead, choose sleek clutches and clutch bags in colours to break the heavy monotony of your winter look. Buy those that have detachable straps, as they double up as your AM to PM bags.

Winter fashion with chic scarves

If you're not inclined to invest in winter trends like metallics or hourglass silhouettes but still want to stay in the winter fashion game, consider adding scarves to your wardrobe. Scarves are a winter essential, but did you know that scarf dressing is a stylish trend, too? Whether you choose printed or plain scarves, they can add a touch of chic to your winter style, keeping you both fashionable and warm during the cold season.

Embrace the chilly season with these trendy fashion choices, and you'll be sure to turn heads and stay cozy throughout the winter months. Whether it's the elegance of long black coats, the allure of metallic accents, the chicness of cropped jackets, or the moody charm of dark florals -- there's a winter trend for everyone!
