10 Outfit ideas to get you through winter ❄️

There’s lots of pre-spring talk in the fashion world, which is always really exciting … but we do still have eight weeks of winter to go! And, since many of us are just trying to get dressed on a daily basis, I thought I’d put together some outfit ideas that will make it easy and quick. Just this week, several of you asked me for suggestions on what to wear to a concert, a wedding and on a long flight. So, today’s post will give you 10 outfit ideas to get you through winter, whether it’s raining, cloudy, or just plain cold. They are versatile and stylish, and will come together in no time.

Several weeks ago, when my daughter Em and I were doing some last minute Christmas shopping, we got side-tracked and ended up in the “Alpine Attire” section of Nordstrom. Never mind that neither of us has skied in years 😂 We loved the look, and since the aprés-ski vibe is everywhere, you can get it too — just find a cute sweater and add your favorite jeans and boots. Keep reading to get outfit ideas, as well as winter staples that work for everyone and a board for those of you who ski. Based on all the sweet comments I get daily, you all love many of these items too. Stay warm!

The Color Combination You’re About To See Everywhere


#1 The Ultimate Ski Trip Essentials

Pink Jacket | Pants | White Jacket | Houndstooth Snowsuit | Blue Snowsuit | Long-Sleeved top | Moon Boots | Sorel Boots | Gloves | Ear Muffs | Headband | Sunglasses

Apparently, Aspen is the place to be — and all the cool cats are embracing the aprés-ski trend. Whether you actually ski or just hang out in the lodge, it’s pretty easy to look super stylish since there are SO MANY cute things available right now! Em just wrote this blog post, and I love every single thing she picked. Check it out here.


#2 Puffer coat

The Aritzia puffer coat is a hot item seen all over Instagram. Everyone loves it, including many celebrities who are featured in Who What Wear. There are several options, including different lengths, as well as the prettiest colors — check it out here. I also love this one, and this Varley one too.


#3 Travel outfit


Rag & Bone blazer | Fendi bag | Jeans | Loafers | Naghedi tote | Beis luggage

Traveling seems to be on everyone’s mind, whether you’re dreaming, planning or actually going on vacation. I often wear jeans if the flight is short, but on longer flights I prefer to be cozy in leggings, joggers and sneakers. This Varley quilted jacket is coming with me on my next trip. It’s versatile, and easy to layer over soft sweaters. Click here to see my latest travel style board.


#4 Winter outfits under $100

Belted jacket | Baseball hat | Scarf | Jeans | White tee | Sunglasses | Red bag | New Balance sneakers 

Winter outfits are pretty easy to put together if you start with good denim and a white tee. Pretty much any jack or coat will work, then add a cute hat, a scarf and shoes that are appropriate for wherever you’re going. Finish with a couple of accessories and … voilà! You’re out the door 🙂 See more favorites under $100 here.


#5 New workwear

Halogen sweater | Frame crop trousers | Prada slingbacks, affordable version here | Chloe tote

I’ve been getting lots of requests for work outfits, and it’s something I plan on sharing soon. These cropped trousers are a version of the top-selling Effortless Pant from Aritzia. Since they come in petite sizes, I snapped them up. If you need a good basic black trouser, the stretchy cotton one by Frame is a favorite. Add slingbacks and you’ll look a little more updated than if you wear a regular pump. For a more affordable option, I love these Sam Edelmans.


#6 Rainy day inspo

Black coat | Ivory cardigan | Bottega bag | Rosette sweatshirt | Packabale coat | Jeans | Black boot | Burberry scarf | Hat | Chloe tote | White Chelsea boot

Several weeks ago, I was in London for a ten day work trip, and the weather was a mixed bag of rain, clouds and even a little sunshine. Whether I was trend shopping in Notting Hill or sipping tea in Selfridges, I realized that everywhere I looked, all the cool girls were wearing a “uniform!” Yep, they all had some version of this outfit: a long wool coat, denim, black boots, a scarf and a posh designer handbag (everything from YSL to Chanel to Gucci). That gave me inspiration for this post 😉


#7 Vacation dresses

If you have a vacation planned, or are just thinking ahead for spring outfits, check out this recent blog post for a little inspo. Anthropologie has some great finds, and so does Revolve. I wore all of these on our recent trip to Mexico.


#8 Happy hour: Blazer + Silk blouse

Faux leather blazer, similar | Ecru denim | Frame Gillian blouse

A couple of days ago, two different people asked for help on what to wear for a night out and a concert. For going out, I love blouses as long as they can be a touch sexy, and not too work-y! In fact, the Frame Gillian I’m wearing above is an all time favorite. If you like to wear black, then a pretty black blouse is a must-have in your collection. You’ll always feel glamorous in black!


#9 Beauty refresh

Top 10 beauty favorites: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

A while back, I popped into the Nordstrom Beauty department for a little refresh. Thankfully, my good friend and trusted resource Kirk was there to show me his top 10 picks. And, since he’s a beauty stylist, he knows what’s selling and what’s important for all of us to use in order to feel rested and refreshed! I use all but three of these products (3, 4 and 6), although I just purchased the Charlotte Tilbury Setting Spray.
