I’ve often been asked how do you dress warm and stylish for the winter? Winter clothing ideas always bring to the mind either lots of layering and warm winter jackets. As I am based in Bengaluru, the winters here are deliciously cold but not so cold that you need extremely thick jackets. I always love layering but on light winter days, I’d love to put my stylish foot forward without having too many layers that add more bulk to the look.
My favorite winter outfit ideas always include denim jeans. However, in recent times, I’ve wanted to go beyond the denim jeans and jacket look. This time, the weather in Bengaluru has been quite cold and I decided to combine some comfortable elements to get that chic look and stay warm in the lovely winters!
If you are wondering how this winter clothing idea can actually keep me warm, let me spill some secrets.
- I always believe in comfortable and closed footwear. In this case, I’ve deliberately worn ankle-high boots. These have a comfortable inner lining that keeps my feet warm. To me, keeping my feet warm solves half the problem already. Footwear that is strappy and peep-toes are a big no-no as winter clothing ideas (if you are comfortable though, please go for it!)
2. I have chosen a warm woolen mermaid tail winter skirt from Ginger brand. This has a snug fit and is soft in texture with a great fit. You can combine it with inner pants to keep those legs warm and you are set!
3. I’ve opted for a full-sleeves black top as it retains the warmth and my hands are covered. If you think you’ll still feel cold, you can opt for matching gloves and a woolen black cap. There are so many varieties available that it is so easy to style your winter clothing look.
4. Keep those ears covered if you have to. Another trick is to use cotton in your ears as the weather gets windy often!
Here’s a collection of some of my favorite winter clothing items. You can opt for long skirts or team the short ones with black leggings or warm stockings. These are easily available in malls and on online stores.
