After the holidays, when the Christmas cheer is gone, the thrill of the new year always inspires us to start fresh. While we make lists of things to do more and less of, what better way to start the year than with a new style.

However, at the same time, one has to prepare for the cold weather ahead.

Winter is in full session, and it seems to be getting colder by the minute. We’re back to wearing heavy coats and jackets. Whenever a season begins, I go on Pinterest seasonal outfits to get inspired on what to wear. It’s all about the coats and the sweaters. The goal is, after all, to be safe and warm while looking stylish.

When the weather begins to be really frightful, the key to keeping warm is to wear lots of layers. Remember when the streets were filled with big heavy The North Face jackets? Well that trend is gone. This Fashionista proves that the true essential to keeping warm this winter is a hooded puffer jacket.

I love how this Fashionista really rocks the brown and teal color scheme with the Pajar boots and warm mittens.  It really captures the winter spirit. One can also pair a puffer jacket with blue or black jeans or even warm leggings. This jacket is just asking to go on a ski trip. Let your wardrobe this season pop out like a Pinterest board or better yet, look as if you came from a winter wonderland.

Let’s not let this cold windy weather keep us from looking our best. Instead of dreading the cold, get inspired by it! Let this winter be your motivation to change up your style. Just because Christmas is over doesn’t mean the season is.
