#2. Fur bestie

What’s fur got to do with it? Everything, all thanks to sustainable designers who replace this beauty with faux fur without tampering with its authenticity. This season, the bigger the fur, the sleeker the fashion statement, and infusing bold colors for extra touch is a great idea.

#3. Color splatter

This season’s winter trends relegated the cliché moody hues to the background and said, “No Summer, not today, we get to have vibrant colors too.” From the high end runways to Instagram feeds, there is much more than a pop of color. Think of it as a color burst, and this approach sure keeps the mood up and the mood board full.

#4. See-through tights

After a time of social hibernation, there’s still a chance to cut loose and live fast in mini and shirt dresses paired with see-through tights. The key is to invest in pieces that stave off the cold and do a great job layering. They keep things looking edgy, and this is one of the trusted Winter trends that ensure your barely-there fits do not hit rock bottom in your wardrobe.

#5. Puff hard

For winter trends that have successfully set their anchor in our closets, the puff jacket and scarf rank high. They can be worn with anything—sweat sets to sassy dresses. Certainly, this is a piece in due season that’ll easily add a unique touch to your ensemble.

#6. Leather

There’s no winter without leather, it’s called leather weather for a reason. The textures might change and be available in different styles and cuts, but the classic staple remains a great style ally, and obviously, designers have not yet had enough of this winter trend.

#7. Cutouts

Apparently, summer left the cutouts behind, but fashionistas still die hard on this trend, even with the dropping degrees, and designers are steadily churning out innovative cutout pieces. At this point, the cold has thrown in the towel with these winter trends because it’s nothing a stylish faux fur coat can’t fix.

#8. Oversized scarf

The perfect pieces for coordinating outdoor layering are oversize scarves. They are the practical cold weather piece to infuse into your winter accessories collection, and the best cuddle buddies of the season.

#9. Knit wear/mini sweater dress

Year after year, knit dresses remain welcome, especially for the tricky temps. This year is no different although they are less chunkier, longer and more form-fitting. Knit wear, especially mini sweater dresses, keeps things alluring and stylish—one of the must-do Winter trends we are stoked about.
