This season, winter weather has been all over the place, and depending on where you live, in a span of a week or a couple of days, you could experience weather ranging from extreme cold and “Bomb Cyclones,” to unseasonably warmer days.  This weather uncertainty can definitely make outfit planning difficult, and can certainly give you headaches when trying to organize your wardrobe for the season.

To me, extending your wardrobe during winter months requires starting with the right pieces, organizing these pieces, and styling these pieces in different ways that allow you to create various different looks.  In today’s “Style Guide,” I am sharing five ways you can extend your winter wardrobe to maximize your outfit options.

Style Guide:  5 Ways To Extend Your Winter Wardrobe

Buy Lightweight Pieces That Can Be Layered – We all know layering is key during the winter months, so pairing lightweight coats over heavy sweaters, or heavy coats over lightweight sweaters and tops, is one way to create quick, easy, winter friendly outfits.

Stay Neutral –  Having neutral pieces in your closet can make winter outfit planning very simple.  Black, beige, gray, and camel pieces can be easily styled, and you can always add pops of color with your accessories.

Add Warm Accessories – Accessories like fedoras, berets, boots, and blanket scarves are the perfect winter weather accessories that can be added to give any outfit a new and different look.

Stock Up On Winter Wardrobe Staples – Items like turtlenecks, statement coats, wool sweaters, boots, and suede pumps, are the perfect wardrobe staples to have in your closet to help extend your winter wardrobe.

Keep Kimono’s And Wraps Handy – Kimono’s and wraps are ideal layering pieces to have on hand during the winter months.  They are perfect for wearing with dressed or casual looks, and they are instant style enhancers for any outfit.

I hope today’s post has given you a few ideas for extending your winter wardrobe this season.  For this look, I paired my Plaid Coat with my Cable Sweater and my Cuffed Jeans (sold out; similar here and here).  I accessorized with my Blue Suede Pumps (old, similar here and here), my Denim Suede Bag, and my Gucci Belt.  You can shop these items or similar items in the post, by clicking the photos below in “Shop This Post,” or by clicking the links above in “Outfit Details.”
