Certain women can even opt for denim winter coats if they live in an area that experiences mild winter. This works in keeping the body warm and comfortable. These are often crafted in shorter styles that look trendy and are detailed with fur collars or even patches of leather.

Always note that the base layer of your outfit must be very effective. Women’s winter clothes should comprise of materials that should allow the sweat to evaporate. For the lower half of the body, go in for pants that have a flattering cut and comprise of material like wool. This would keep you snug all day without adding too much bulk to the body.

Although you may think that the winter season may not offer you too much flexibility as far as footwear is concerned, this may not always hold true. Black winter boots always remain to be the favorite amongst most fashion savvy women. Cowboy boots add to the bootylicious factor for your entire winter ensemble. Ankle length boots that are paired with skinny jeans make a hot combo for a dull and dreary winter day. If this tends to be too jazzy for you, then you can go in for casual winter shoes like slouch boots. These come with low heels and look fabulous when teamed with skirts. A good pair of shoes can help you alter your winter clothing to a great extent.

Winder clothing need not always mean dull colors. Work on the texture and colors of the outfits. Go in for metallic shades to spruce up the dull blacks. Gunmetal silver and dark gold tones work for any night-out. Accessorize your winter clothing with a metallic bag for some added glitz and glamor.

•If you don’t have too much time to fuss around buying winter clothing, ensure you get a gorgeous pashmina shawl. Add on some accessories and watch everybody sit up and take notice of the elegant new you!
