Modern Winter Style Trends
Ready for a few snowflakes to catch on your nose and eyelashes? Even if you don’t live in a particularly cold part of the country, you are probably gearing up for the winter look. Here are some important tips and trends that will be popular this year as you go shopping for the winter season.
We haven’t really seen skirts popular at this length for a while now, but just past the knee is hitting fashion big for the 2014-2015 winter season. As the name suggests, a midi skirt is in between the length of maxi and mini. Form-flattering pencil and a-line midi skirts are ready to be rocked. Because color-blocking is in with geometric force this season, solid skirts are going to be especially popular. Fabulous silver-grey or classic black could be paired with nearly anything in your wardrobe.
Oversized Knit Sweaters

From draping cable-knit sweaters to comfy oversized cardigans, winter styles for 2014-2015 are looking cozy! Staying fashionable is simple with trending styles like these. We all love layered looks for fall this season, but what’s important to note is that oversized will look frumpy very quickly without the perfect pair of complementary jeans or leggings. This is why the next section is so important for this winter season….
A skinny jean or legging paired with a boot or heel is hot when paired with a large top. Think opposites. If you have a very loose-fitting top, pair it with tight-fitting pants and vice versa. This will help accentuate parts of your frame while keeping the rest a mystery. The flattering mix-and-match style is what makes leg-hugging bottoms the perfect choice for your cool weather wardrobe.
Watch for spindly heels to be replaced with a more substantial and practical option for winter. Chunky heels may seem a little conservative, but in a very cutting-edge kind of way. The stable base is practical for walking in icy parking lots without fear for a mangled ankle in the process. The chunky heel is going to be perfect for the office and transition perfectly to your evening outfit for a night on the town.

Just like oversized sweaters, the thick and draping scarves are a big hit for this upcoming season. Replacing once popular turtlenecks, scarves are the perfect option for hiding a double chin or breaking up your bodily proportions. Be careful not to go too far overboard with the statement items; one large pair of sunglasses and a big scarf wrapped around your neck shouldn’t have to battle with large pants or an a-line skirt.
Overstated Pendant Jewelry

Another large statement piece? Yes. When done correctly, the oversized pendant creates a fabulous v-line for your torso without the actual plunging neckline, allowing a form-flattering appearance without the lack of fabric (which would be far too ventilated for winter fashion). The overstated pendant is yet another item that will have to be paired sparingly with other statement pieces. The pendant itself can be large or heavily detailed, but shouldn’t look gaudy or cheap. You will find that this popular item will be pretty easy to find in many stores at an affordable price.
Ideal for three seasons out of the year, you will get your money’s worth out of your trench coat purchase. Check out JCPenney coupons from Valpack to help you get your trench coat at a deal that you can’t beat! There is something simply fabulous, whimsical, and mysterious about a good outfit paired with the perfect trench. Traditional beige is popular while chic black or grey is slightly edgier for this season. The trench coat is still huge in Great Britain, so it’s past time that we picked it up for a few seasons ourselves.
Don’t be afraid to let your personality and fabulous figure shine through this winter! These styles are just a few of the amazing looks that you will see in the stores for this season. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to layer and accessorize!
