I adore the boots, oversized sweaters, layered cardigans and rich fabrics like cashmere, wool, leather and knits.
To be bundled up yet chic, outerwear and cold weather accouterments should be an integral part of ensemble planning for the frosty fashionista.
While our city is lucky to continue enjoying sunny, tepid days well into November, soon the temperatures will drop. Before the chill in the air sends you running to your closet, build your wintertime wardrobe now with these essentials.
Plaid Long Wrap Coat
Plaid is a massive trend this winter. Break away from the expected lumberjack black and red with this subtle gray to ivory shaded plaid print. The mid-thigh cut is flattering for many body types and provides comfortable yet stylish everyday wear. Style it with a long gainsboro colored scarf to add texture like the one pictured here. Both of these items are available at Banana Republic Factory Store at Colorado Mills for $189.99 and $39.99, respectively.
Faux-Fur Trimmed Puffer Vest
This burgundy puffer vest is a beautiful color for winter as a bold yet sensual shade of red. The faux-fur trimmed hood adds a stunning detail that will provide warmth without bulk. This is available at Banana Republic Factory Store at Colorado Mills for $89.99.
Festive Fashion Hues
For shoppers seeking a festive pop of red, this jeweled sweater is pleasing to the eye and glamorous. Wear it with minimal jewelry as a standalone statement sweater. Add this dynamic rounded handbag for a burst of confidence. The gold hardware is lovely and the choice for handle or adjustable strap makes this versatile when donning bulky outerwear. Both of these items are available at Michael Kors Outlet at Colorado Mills for $155 and $300, respectively.
Classic is Queen
Good winter coats are often durable and last us more than one season, especially the ones with timeless style. When you are not looking to replace a coat but would like to refresh your winter look, a new scarf and bag make the perfect pair. This white scarf is versatile and elegant with an oversized gray check print. The delicate fringe adds a sophisticated detail. Combine it with this rich leather tote bag that will perform all-day. The scarf and tote are available at Banana Republic Factory Store at Colorado Mills for $39.99 and $114.99, each.
Shades of Gray
Gray is an anchor color of winter style with so many pretty shades within the color’s family. This year’s hat and glove accessories favor black details like stitching, bobbles, and buttons. This gray hat is a perfect illustration with its lovely black-jeweled embroidery. The turquoise feather pom pom is a flirty finish. Similarly, these long gray fingerless gloves will keep your hands warm without sacrificing dexterity. The high gloss black buttons are incredibly reflective so they will glimmer even on winter’s darkest days. These are available at the Limited Outlet at Colorado Mills where scarves and hats start at $39.95 and gloves are $34.95.
This year, don’t let cold temperatures make your style drab. It is possible to rock great style in the dead of winter! Ultimately, don’t put your winter looks on ice by snagging these fab finds at Colorado Mills, where you can look forward to everyday discounts up to 70 percent.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
