Stylish Winter Clothes

During colder weather it is easy to get mired down with lots of layers that keep you bundled up and warm, but sometimes it is nice to break out into stylish winter clothes so that you still manage to maintain that flirty, feminine look.  Here are a few great winter clothes ideas to help snap you out of the winter clothing doldrums.

Consider the sweater.  A piece that you certainly need to wear in the winter and there are some great ways to find stylish sweaters that are not frumpy or plain and will help spice up your winter wardrobe. Take for example the Aspen Motorcycle sweater by Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  A great retro inspired piece the Aspen Motorcycle sweater is a cropped sweater featuring a fold over neck along with an off center zipper from top to bottom.  We also love the great zipper details on the pockets and the epaulets on the shoulders with matching black buttons.  An adorable sweater that is certain to be a staple piece in your wardrobe. This sweater style is a must have for cold winters and this sweater is so warm and cozy and still looks super stylish on.

Another winter staple is the turtleneck.  Turtlenecks have really become timeless pieces that really never fade completely out of style.  While the basic concept of the turtleneck is fairly standard between tops, but you really can find a variety of different details or accents that make them very distinctive.  Consider the Catelina Turtleneck by Velvet with pleats at the neckline.  This turtleneck features a baby jersey cotton and the turtleneck does stay in place better than other turtleneck styles and we adore the pleats which give a basic style a little added feminine touch.   Compare that turtleneck to the Discharge turtleneck by AlixK or the similar Cappy short sleeve turtleneck also by AlixK.  These turtlenecks feature a gathered turtleneck that also stays in place, but creates a beautiful feminine touch on an otherwise plain turtleneck.  AlixK is known for their hand embroidery detailing every top and we love the added details like the darts that give added stylish accents to basic style tops.

Another great example of stylish winter clothes is various designs of wrap sweaters.  We love the Audrey wrap sweater by designer Laurie B.  This sweater is a lightweight fabric blend that feels luxuriously soft.  The fabric includes a cashmere and viscose blend so it feels silky soft on.  The wrap is a faux wrap but with a contrasting tie around the waist that gives it added depth and a subtle feminine touch.  Wraps as a whole are a great piece for your winter wardrobe and you will see them in a variety of styles and colors.

In short, these are simply a few examples of great ways to insert stylish winter clothes into your wardrobe.  Of course you can find a variety of wonderful stylish pieces for colder weather that really do give you great feminine styles to incorporate into your wardrobe you just have to look for them.  Don’t forget to accessorize any of your favorite winter pieces with scarves or cute hats as appropriate as great economical ways to bring in added depth and style to your winter clothes.

Black Bomber Jacket

A classic jacket style is the bomber jacket.  Modern twists on the bomber jacket have taken a typically masculine jacket and often convert it into something more feminine and fitted.  Many modern jackets featuring some elements of the bomber jacket in a variety of fabrics and styles.

One of our favorite modern twists on the classic bomber jacket style is the Jersey Bomber Jacket by Zooey by Alice Heller.  This bomber jacket is available in both black and navy. We love the fact that it isn’t leather the traditional bomber jacket fabric.  Since we are always searching for pieces that help you create your own individual style, we were thrilled that this jersey bomber jacket is truly a distinctive piece.  With a fold over collar if you decide to button it up all the way or a wide v neck type collar if you don’t.  My personal favorite detail is the back which arches up giving it a completely unique surprise in back.  Added modern, feminine touches include the oversized buttons, front pockets and a flared waist only in front.   This version by Zooey features thick cotton so it is thicker than your basic sweatshirt, but equally soft which makes it a pleasure to wear.

Another alternative to the basic black bomber jacket is a beautiful Motorcycle Sweater by Velvet by Graham and Spencer.  The Aspen Motorcycle sweater features an off center zipper all the way up to the top of the sweater.  Of course you can’t forget the added details with zipper pockets and epaulets on the shoulders.   This sweater still manages to be soft even though it is made with a wool nylon blend. This fabric of course makes it extremely warm!  With a cropped length, this sweater really does have a modern, distinctive look and is the perfect piece for winter weather.

We also can’t forget mentioning other jacket alternatives like the Cropped Double Breasted Jacket also by Zooey by Alice Heller.  The sister to the Black Bomber Jacket, this jacket features a fitted look with big buttons and a tie belt around the waist with belt loops.  With a wide collar and also available in Black and Navy, this jacket is the perfect piece for fall or warmer winter weather.  This jacket is also made with the heavy sweatshirt fabric that is so soft and machine washable.  This great alternative to the Bomber Jacket is a great modern spin on another classic look of the pea coat.

In short, we love finding great modern versions of classic vintage favorites like the bomber jacket or the pea coat.  These jacket alternatives are great examples of how many vintage elements are making comebacks in modern fashions.  The bomber jacket look will always be a classic traditional style of jacket and we love finding jackets that really bring those classic fashions to the modern shopper with twists of details that add a modern flair to really make each of these pieces statement pieces that will become some of your favorite ways to create your own individual style.
