The importance of updating your winter wardrobe
Time moves fast but fashion moves faster, and it’s important to update your style for the season. While you could wear the same old itchy holiday sweater your aunt gave you a few years ago, where’s the fun in that? As fashion designer Vivienne WestwoodOnce said, “Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well.”Although you may view updating your winter wardrobe as a chore right now, you can try to see it as a positive thing. The clothing you wear is a reflection of you. It gives the world a first impression about who you are and what you love to do.
Also, you will look better if you feel confident in your clothes. “It’s essential to update your wardrobe periodically,”Noel Jones, PR Coordinator at Brandon Blackwood. “Just as the seasons change, so does your fashion sense. As much as you want to keep up with the latest trends, you also want to adjust your style to fit your current interests and preferences.”Giving your winter wardrobe some love and attention is a form of self-love.
Winter Weather Essentials
Before we get to the trendiest winter fashion styles of 2022, we’ve got some essential items picked out that are always great to have on hand for the colder months.
Sweaters you can easily layer
Even if you live in a place with mild winter weather, it’s always a good idea to have some sweaters on hand for an easy-to-style top option that will have you looking good while keeping you warm. “Sweaters are perfect for layering during the colder months,” says Monte Deere, CEO of Kizik. “They also come in a variety of styles that make them versatile for many different occasions. You could opt for a more casual knit sweater for a white elephant gift exchange with friends, or go for a classy cashmere sweater for a holiday dinner with the in-laws.”
Boots made for walking and weather
While sneakers and slip-ons might cut it as footwear for warmer months, when winter rolls into town, it’s time to break out the boots. “I think it’s important to have at least one pair of go-to boots for the winter months,” says Sumeer Kaur, CEO of Lashkaraa. “They’re cute and functional, a perfect combination for unpredictable winter weather.”
Comfort is key during winter months. “When nights and mornings get colder, you want to have a set of pajamas that look cute, but also provide enough warmth,”Adelle Archer is CEO and Co-Founder Eterneva. “Opt for a matching flannel set with a fun holiday print, or invest in some warm loungewear if you’re looking for a comfy, fashionable fit you can wear all day long.”
A go-to pair of tights
A good pair of tights is a must-have! Tights are great to have on hand to throw on under a skirt or dress when it’s too cold to leave your legs uncovered. You have two options: a regular pair of sock-footed or a footless pair, depending on your preference. Tights come in a vast array of colors and textures as well, so they’re easy to match with any winter ensemble.
A Cute Dress Coat
“While winter means wearing layers, it doesn’t mean those layers can’t be cute!”Patrick Robinson, CEO and Founder at Paskho. “Invest in a high-quality, sophisticated wool winter dress coat to stay warm while looking good.”Oversized coats are very popular and can be worn over a nice dress at your office holiday party.
The Most Trendy Winter Fashion Trends in 2022
Although the year is coming to an end, fashion fun has just begun! This year promises to be a wonderful year for winter fashion trends. The best are:
Cut-Out Tops, Dresses
Fashion items with cut-outs are expected to rise in popularity in 2022. Dan Potter, Head Digital at CRAFTD London, “Cut-out tops and dresses are a great way to show just a little bit of skin during the winter months. Pair a knit shirt with a cut-out neckline with a tailored matching blazer and pants for an exciting, yet elegant look. For a more casual style, you could opt for a long-sleeved bodysuit with waist cut-outs paired with a set of dark wash jeans and boots.”Cut-outs are fashionable no matter the season.
Knit matching sets
There’s nothing quite as comfortable as a nice knit set to wear: even better, knit matching sets are totally in style right now! “We’re seeing a huge rise in popularity in layered knit looks throughout the fashion world this year,”Gigi Ji, Head Brand and Business Development at Gigi Ji Kokolu. “Knit matching sets are perfect for winter. They’re warm and easy to wear. I recommend trying a set in a bold color like fuschia, which has been quite popular recently.”
If you want to incorporate multiple colors into your look, color-blocked knits are a great option. To create a color-blocked look, pick one solid color knit top and another solid color knit bottoms.

If you prefer simple and chic, a black turtleneck sweater with a matching black maxi skirt is the best choice. Whatever type of looks you love, you’re sure to find a knit set that suits you.
These jackets, which combine warmth and style, have returned to popularity in recent years. “Flight jackets, or bomber jackets as they’re also commonly known, are always in style. But recently they’ve become even more popular, with high-fashion brands coming up with their own elevated versions of them,”Karim Hachem is VP eCommerce at Maxine of Hollywood. “If you’re looking for a flight jacket that stands out from a crowd, try an oversized option with a bright hue.”You can also choose flight jackets with bold sequin appliques or intricate embroidered patterns. If a bold bomber jacket isn’t for you, opt for a classic all-black flight jacket with a satin exterior.
Flight jackets are ideal for casual winter outings when the weather isn’t too inclement. “They’re a wonderful outerwear option to elevate a simple long-sleeve shirt and jeans look,” says Cesar Cruz, Co-Founder of Sebastian Cruz Couture. “It’s great to have a winter jacket that’s an in-between for a light cardigan and a hefty winter coat.”
Gen Z has made Y2K fashion hugely popular. “We’re seeing a pivot away from high-rise maxi skirts, and back to mid and low-rise mini skirts,”Eric Elggren is co-founder of Andar. “The younger generation has totally embraced the Y2K look, but are putting their own twist on it, wearing mini-skirts in a variety of different styles. There’s been a resurgence in the tennis skirt look, the fashion meets athleisure look, as well as more punk rock styles of plaid and flannel.” Just be sure you’ve got a pair of tights to wear underneath your favorite mini skirt when temperatures get super chilly!
Many types of leather
Last but not least, leather jackets are a popular style for winter. Leather jackets are great for warmth, whether you’re looking to dress up casual winter looks or layering over a long knit dress. Leather pants and skirts can be stylish, but also functional. You can choose from classic black leather or warm red colors to spice up your winter leather look.
A Winter Fashion Wrap Up
As fashion designer Kenzo TakataOnce said, “Fashion is like eating; You shouldn’t stick to the same menu.” While it can be tempting to recycle the same clothes you wore last year, it’s great to embrace new fashion trends and update your wardrobe for the winter months. Your closet should be stocked with winter essentials such as sweaters, cozy pajamas or boots, stylish dresses, and easy-to accessorize tights. You can then explore the latest trends in fashion: from cute peekaboo-cut-out tops to cozy knit matching sets to trendy flight jackets and leather looks to Y2K inspired mini skirts. There are many new and exciting styles that you can add this winter to your wardrobe. You also have the opportunity to make the most popular fashion items yours. What winter trends do you want to try?
