Which Winter Style Fits You?

Winter style is about finding ways to stay comfortable and warm regardless of whether one is indoors or outdoors. In this season the leaves have fallen, everything is cold, and the color white is suddenly everywhere.

Most people just add scarves, hats, jackets and boots to get ready for the season, but are all winter outfits the same?

Let’s take a look at what was presented during the four main fashion weeks (New York, Paris, Milan and London) to help you define your winter wardrobe.

New York Style: Creativity Meets Hollywood Glamour

American fashion is often associated with denim, sporty and practical looks; however, many people forget the beautiful and glamorous options inspired by Hollywood elegance as well as the creative energy one finds in cities like New York.

For Winter 2024, New York based designers bring florals presented in many ways, shapes, and outfits, including suits. Even though flowers are strongly associated with Spring, they can also be part of your winter wardrobe, but it requires a lot of creativity and mixing the right colors, like fuchsia and black.

To make your winter outfits show your creativity, New York designers also suggest you wear prints, combine contrasting colors and fabrics, and wear party dresses. The idea is to be creative enough to wear bold pieces that can also allow you to move in a rush and look stunning at night events after a busy day.

Some designers to take a look for this season include Tory Burch, Carolina Herrera, Prabal Gurung and Christian Siriano.

Paris: Loud and Sexy

Paris fashion has a riskier take. For Winter 2024,  French designers also embrace florals and mix and match, but louder.
To dress like a Parisian, try all-black looks with feather details, a tartan coat or an emerald green suit.

If black clothes are your armor, think about twisting them by adding a white scarf worn as a cape or by wearing an animal print faux fur coat with it. Finally, another idea is to wear a velvet black suit with white lapels.

The must check French designers include Chanel, Balmain, Saint Laurent and Schiaparelli.

Milan: Colorful, Elegant and Seductive

Italians are color fans in the way they live and dress. In many Italian brands, you will find colors from pastels to bright, giving a little break to black. Other tips from these designers include wearing coats like dresses and adding faux furs to your closet, including the ones with animal prints.
If you want to go for something different and Italian, try Etro, Gucci, Ferragamo or Dolce & Gabbana.

London: Classics or Urban

London style for this winter is a mix of timeless classics, gothic style and outfits with character. On one side, you find urban looks that do not follow social norms by Erdem and JW Anderson; whereas, on the other, you find trench coats by Eudon Choi.

Minimalism was also present in London Fashion Week, thanks to David Koma and Christopher Kane.

To make your next winter outfit say “London,” wear some of the following :

1. Dress worn with a sweater.
2. Corduroy suit with a cotton shirt and a corduroy sweater
3. White dress shirt with a tie and  leather pants
4. Wool mini dress with a coat – both in bright colors

The main goal for winter outfits is to stay warm, but it does not mean one should not wear it with style and uniqueness. To help define your winter wardrobe, consider the 4 different concepts from the fashion capitals described in this article.

For creative personalities, consider a New York look. To get the look from the city that never sleeps, wear florals by mixing contrasting colors like black with fuchsia, try different prints and embrace party dresses for glamour.

Risk takers should go for the bold Paris style. All-black looks can be worn with feathers, tartan coats, scarves as capes or faux fur coats. Other options include velvet suits or suits in bright colors.

Italian style should be the choice for color lovers. Give black outfits a break by mixing colors, and if you are ever in a rush, you can try to wear your coats like a dress.

Finally, if your style varies on factors such as the mood and location, consider Londoners as your guides. For Winter 2024, London-based designers presented concepts from extremes, meaning that you can go for gothic and urban, classic or minimalistic outfits.

No matter which concept you pick if you wear it with style and confidence.
