Plaid tends to come back in style every fall, and it’s especially popular this winter. But you don’t have to stick to the standard black and red variety that pops up everywhere. Plaid comes in all different colors and styles, so you can incorporate your own personal preferences into your look. Try a plaid with bright shades of orange or yellow to bring fall colors into the winter months. You can also find plaid with muted shades of blues, greens, and neutral tones. 

When styling a plaid piece, stick to neutral colors to complement the eye-catching print. A pair of distressed jeans looks cute with a plaid shacket, while a neutral top can balance out plaid pants. 

2. Long-Sleeved Dresses 

Holiday parties are definitely coming back this year, and you need to be ready with a cute dress for every get-together. Silky, sparkly, and velvety materials continue to lead, so look for a party dress that encompasses at least one of these. Long-sleeved dresses are especially popular, and they’re functional as they add warmth during the cold winter season. Flowy dresses reign supreme, and you’ll see a resurgence of the maxi dress this winter. 

Other popular styles include turtleneck dresses and wrap dresses. Pair your favorite turtleneck midlength dress with knee-high boots to create a ‘70s-inspired look. A wrap dress is flattering on just about any body type, and you can wear it from the office to a night out without having to change.

3. Knee-High Boots 

Boots are also wintertime fashion staples, but this year it’s all about the knee-high styles. If you want to look a little more dressed up, grab a pair of heeled boots made of leather or vegan leather. For a more relaxed look, don slouchy knee-high boots with a low stacked heel. Wearing boots will keep you squarely within the women’s winter fashion trends 2021.

Cardigan sweaters are versatile and stylish, especially when worn with skirts or tailored pants. Even a quarter-zip sweater can help you layer — a winter fashion must.
