As the weather cools down, fashion trends are becoming more modest, practical, and easy to wear for winter. We love taking advantage of the latest trends, especially when they point toward cozy pieces you’ll want to wear out into the cold. We stock trend-worthy brands like BLANKNYC, Olive + Oak, BB Dakota, and more so you can always stay up to date with the hottest designers. For the upcoming season, you’ll find familiar, timeless pieces like tweed coats and shirt dresses alongside bold looks like animal and floral prints. Here’s how you can take advantage of the latest trends to get a head start on style for winter 2018.

Layers Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before

This year, trends will focus on new ways of layering. We can totally get behind getting more wear out of spaghetti strap tops by layering them over long-sleeve pieces. It’s also fun to mix it up and keep things cozy by belting a long blanket scarf into a trench coat. When we want a little extra edge, wearing a hoodie over a dress and under a leather jacket keeps us warm while looking cooler than ever.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

One trend that has already hit a boutique near you is animal print. Leopard, snake, and zebra prints have been all over runways, and it looks like they’re here to stay. A classic leopard print jacket or scarf in neutral colors adds just the right amount of fun to any outfit. Other bold prints like bright florals and checks of all stripes are also trendy for winter. Even better, it’s easy to pair all of these prints with this season’s new solid color: brown. Shades of brown are ideal for the season and add just the right nod to ’70s retro style.

Jump on Winter Jackets

We’ve got our eyes on the western trend that includes everything from prairie dresses to western collared shirts to cowboy boots. We’ve also given our attention to trendy jackets. You’ll need at least one great jacket to keep warm, but you can never have too many. Leather is a popular fabric on the runways this season, and a leather jacket pairs well with just about any other winter trend. We also can’t get enough of hooded capes, trench coats, and parkas – anything to stay cozy and stylish at the same time!
