5 Tips For Staying Warm in the Winter Without Sacrificing Style

Hello lovelies! One of my favorite things about winter is all the snow! It’s so pretty and snuggling up inside with a blanket and a book is one of my favorite things to do when it’s snowing. However, the cold is one of my least favorite things about winter. Let’s just say Summer is my favorite season for a reason. I love being WARM! If you’re struggling staying warm this winter or are worried you have to sacrifice style doing it, do not worry! I’ve got you babes covered! Read on for five tips to stay warm this winter and still stay in style.

For my winter layering, I chose to go with a sweater and vest combination. What’s great about a vest is that even when your coat doesn’t keep you completely warm, it will add an extra level of warmth. Not to mention how great you will look when you take off your coat to go inside!

2. Don’t underestimate the power of undergarments.

My style secret is wearing tights under my skinny jeans and a long sleeve tee underneath my sweaters.  No one would ever know it by looking at me, but that extra layer of fabric helps keep me warm!

3. Pile on the cute winter accessories.

Don’t be afraid to pile on the winter accessories. I’m talking hats, scarves, and gloves! Matching sets work great for this, or just mixing and matching pieces that you think would coordinate would also be a great option. I decided to stick with the winter whites and grays since I’m totally loving this combination lately!

Depending on where you live, you may prefer to invest in several winter coats. To be honest, I didn’t wear my coat for the photos because I wanted to show you the power of layering, but having a cute overcoat can definitely finish off the look!

5. Snow boots can be your best friend.

Snow boots don’t have to be ugly! In fact, they can be very cute. There are so many cute options out there, and if you want to be brave like me, go for one with heels. Double bonus!

    Coats are my ultimate for winter. I don’t own a vest though and the only winter accessories I’ve chosen to buy is a scarf haha. No hats and only 2 pairs of gloves. Need to work on that. Options!

    Your winter layering is just darling. I also will wear a comfy pair of tights under my pants for extra warmth, and you’re right – nobody would know the difference! I love your color palate in these pictures, and your accessories are so pretty.

      Thank you! Glad to know someone else is great at the winter layering too!

    Fantastic tips! I always wear a thermal shirt and leggings inside my regular clothes and they definitely do a great job of keeping you warm 🙂 I love booties, they make almost every piece look a little more stylish!

    Love your outfit and all the tips were great. Layering is a must, especially with the weather we’ve been having. Mornings can be cold and by afternoon the temp has warmed up

    • Molly Clifton January 27, 2016 / 9:09 pm

      Thank you! That’s what I love about layering! You can always take off pieces when it gets warmer!

    You’re the cutest and easily becoming one of my favorite bloggers to read and keep up with on social media. Love this outfit, Molly! I’ve been on the hunt for a vest like this one – it’s hard for me to find one that isn’t too bulky on me!

    • Molly Clifton January 27, 2016 / 5:52 pm

      Summer, you just made my day with that comment! Thank you so much for showing support! I’m not a fan of puffer vests either, but I got this one from J Crew factory in the fall when vests were more popular. It’s definitely not bulky at all. Hope you find one you love! Keep smiling!

    Loved this post! (PS we have the same blog theme lol)… but now that I live in Texas, my Jersey girl attire has had to stay all packed up. I used to LOVE layering so much. You could always find me in layers, a cardigan, scarf and boots in the winter… with super cute fluffy ear muffs! I miss it so. 🙂

    • Molly Clifton January 27, 2016 / 9:06 pm

      Steff! I love that you have the same blog theme hah! Good choice! 😉 I don’t know what I would do without the cold! Probably love it! Thank you!
