Winter in the Midwest can feel endless at times. Consider these suggestions to keep it cozy this season.

Seeing Red
A quick scroll through TikTok, Instagram, or Pinterest will tell you that red is the color of the season. Luckily, there are lots of ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe, and it looks great on everyone. Consider a red sneaker, heel or pair
of boots. Another great way to add this pop of color is through your handbag. Whether you’re looking for a chic clutch or designer dupe, we can assure you that this investment will outlast any color trend.
The Test of Time
We all know that trends come and go, but your personal style always stands the test of time. If Christmas shopping has you burnt out, check the back of your closet for some older pieces you can revitalize. Remember, trends cycle. You might be surprised to know that the 90s double denim look is back in style. Embrace these trends for a stylish twist, but most importantly, stay warm all season long.
Sweater Weather
This winter, cozy sweaters are in high demand. Opt for a chunky turtleneck or knit. A popular staple — the cardigan — is also a popular trend this winter. (But is a cardigan ever really out of style?) Reach for an oversized, slouchy one for a comfortable look with leggings or yoga pants, or try a shorter style that hits the top of your jeans or skirt for a night out. Consider a striped option when shopping for the newest addition to your collection. A navy and cream knit gives off a coastal feel; it will keep you trendy, and you might remember what it’s like to be by the beach.
Girls Just Wanna Have … Shoes
Boots are a must-have footwear during winter, and this season, there are a wide range of trending styles available. From chunky Chelsea boots to knee-high leather stilettos, there is something for everyone. This winter, select pointy or square-toed boots; these are the season’s “it” choice. Pair them with straight-leg jeans and a cozy sweater or a midi dress for a chic winter look. For a comfortable option, we have some good news: Uggs are still all the rage (although we’d still be wearing them if they weren’t!) Pair with everyday sweats or your favorite comfy jeans for a laid-back look.
