There’s More to Winter Than Jeans and Leggings

When it comes to fashion, I love summer so much more. My hair always smells like the ocean; I live in flip flops + sandals, and when in doubt, I easily can throw on a dress and walk out the door. Winter is a different story—I need to take warmth into account for every outfit, and often I find myself in the boring, endless of cycle of jeans, leggings, and jeans, again.

Recently, I have been experimenting with ways to change up my usual outfits. Instead of constantly wearing jeans or leggings, I’ve been trying new patterns and outfits to spice up my life and take my style to the next level. Therefore, I’d like to share some of these ideas with you!

Skirts with tights
Too often does the winter involve pants all day everyday. Wearing tights and a skirt can change this! Often I wear black tights, a skirt (denim or velvet are good), a long sleeve shirt, and mid-height Frye boots. Frye boots keep it casual so you don’t look too dressed up or out of place.

Printed pants
Ah, I LOVE printed pants. Not only are they unbelievably comfortable, but they’re cute and a fun way to mix up your outfits. So often are we used to wearing a pattern on top with plain colored pants on bottom! I recommended looking at Mexicali Blues, Antropoligie, and/or Elephant Pants.

Different styles of jeans
Despite common belief, dark wash skinny jeans are not the only option! Try different washes, different kinds of rips, and different fits. I love flared jeans, patches, and jeans rolled up.

Different colors of leggings
Once again, black leggings do not need to be your go-to. Try maroon, black and white stripped, and more funky colors of leggings.

In addition to pattern and color, experiment with the length of your leggings. I love three-fourths and seven-eighths.
