[Baltimore Sun] Casual outfits stylish enough to wear through the winter

Read Time:5 Minute, 36 Second

With winter here, there’s no time left to prepare for the cold. That doesn’t mean it’s too late to get stylish winter clothes, but it does mean you need to act fast.

When shopping for new clothes, it’s important to remember that no piece is worn in a vacuum. You’ve got to pair things in your mind while shopping, visualizing how things will look. You should also consider that some of your fall clothes can still be worn if paired with items like thermal underwear.

Outfit examples

Casual but stylish winter outfits tend to be on the simple side, though that doesn’t mean they can’t be a little fancy. Clothing such as turtlenecks and fleece-lined jackets, for example, can be paired well with jeans or thermal leggings. Flannel of all kinds is also popular and casual. Just don’t confuse it with plaid, which is the name of the pattern that most flannels use.

Thermal underwear

A little-known secret to increasing your outfit-making options is to have a good set or two of thermal underwear. These types of clothing are thin enough to be worn comfortably under other layers, but they have properties that keep you extra warm. You can even wear them as is for warmer-than-usual pajamas.

Winter accessories

An outfit isn’t made solely of tops and bottoms, though you could keep it simple if you really wanted. Instead, your outfit should include winter accessories, such as gloves, scarves and earmuffs. Some earmuffs even have Bluetooth functionality so that you can listen to your music without leaving your ears exposed.
