Winter fashion is something of a misnomer. Bundled from head to toe in whatever keeps the cold away is not necessarily a recipe for a stylish ensemble. Don’t you worry, all is not lost. The arctic misery that engulfs much of the world from December to March doesn’t have to dampen your love for fashion (and bargains)—there are pieces that will help take the edge off the biting winter winds and up your rating on Hot or Not without breaking the bank. Let us investigate.
Vegan Coat by BB Dakota
BB Dakota, a brand sold in quite a few chains like Urban Outfitters is usually grossly overpriced. On Alternative Outfitters, however, there are many styles sold for a fraction of the usual mind-numbing retail price. Not a fan of this jacket? Not a problem. There are so many different styles to keep ya warm!
Little Mittens by Cate & Levi
Made from reclaimed wool and fleece (inside), these adorable little mittens will keep the hands warm and kids occupied. They look like little puppets! There are lots more hand-warming hi-jinx where those came from!
Recyled Cashmere Scarf
This recycled cashmere scarf will definitely keep the cold winter chill from ruining your day! There are an assortment of colors on Haute Goat Cashmere including a fun argyle pattern and a quaint scarf with a flower detail.
Having a staple winter hoodie is a must and this one looks so warm. This hoodie by HTNaturals is made from 50% bamboo and 50% organic cotton and comes in two other colors- charcoal and black.
Roomy Hemp Bag
Winter also means carrying around extra layers, no? Just me? Well, just in case the forecast is a little off, it’s good to have an extra sweater… or two. This bag is roomy enough to accommodate anyone’s overzealous need for warmth.
There are also other ways to stay fashion forward without incessantly spending bucket loads of money and that’s by thrifting! Check out your local thrift stores and browse sales racks. You can make finding cute winter clothes a scavenger hunt and who doesn’t love a good scavenger hunt? However you find your winter gear, be sure to stay warm!
