A wonderland of winter fashion trends

As the temperature drops and a  new season approaches, students can adapt to any outfit that they wear to school to stay current with these 2019 winter fashion trends:

Cropped Cardigan

These jackets were popular in the 1960s and have made a comeback this year. Online retailers such as Princess Polly carry various colors and blends of materials for these cropped cardigans. A pair of classic blue jeans is a great way to style this top for a casual vibe. A more preppy look can be achieved by unbuttoning your cropped cardigan and wearing a tank top underneath it. Pairing it with a patterned mini-skirt can make an outfit more stylish.

Chunky jewelry

To transition to winter outfits, more people are gravitating toward chunky jewelry rather than dainty accessories to compete their looks this year. Among the jewelry pieces found in stores such as Urban Outfitters, necklaces with a lock charm are becoming one of the most popular styles. To execute a look with this trend, the key is to keep the outfit as monotone as possible, so it won’t clash with the statement piece. Another great tip is to choose one accessory so your outfit won’t look cluttered. 

Mid Skirts

As the temperatures drops, more students are switching out mini skirts for midi skirts, which reaches below the knee. Coming in different patterns and fabric, the satin leopard skirt is the most popular style for this year and can be found in retail stores like Brandy Melville and Princess Polly. A style tip is to wear a baggy graphic tee tied in a front knot or incorporate the cropped sweaters for a more cozy vibe. Finally wear Doc Martens or chunky white sneakers to tie up this vintage 1980s look. 

Ankle Boots

One fashion item that exudes confidence is ankle boots. Worn with leggings or jeans, these shoes are not only versatile but are a never-ending craze in the fashion industry. To further elevate this look, you can layer a cropped hoodie with a leather jacket, and complete the outfit with black jeans. For a more laid back look, you can wear a turtleneck long sleeve with any jeans to complete the outfit. Ankle boots can be found at most major retailers, including Nordstrom.
