We’ll be honest: We spend most of December preparing our holiday looks. You know, what we’re wearing to the annual office bash, what we’re wearing for casual family celebrations, what we’re wearing to our BFF potluck-cum-gift-exchange, and, of course, what we’re wearing when the ball drops at midnight. And it makes sense; these seasonal activities tend to dominate our last-month-of-the-year schedules. But, that’s not all we should be dressing for.
Typically, we’d say the next few weeks will be spent battling chilly temperatures and sporadic snowfalls, but with a forecast that’s been less than reliable (though we’re certainly not complaining about the 60 degree November days we’ve had here in New York), your wardrobe requires just one thing — and that’s variety. That’s why, the 31 outfits ahead (one for every day of the month) offer up a little bit of everything: matching cashmere sets, sweatshirts paired with heels, and every type of coat you could possibly dream of.
Winter’s version of the matching set couldn’t be more chic…or comfortable.
For days that aren’t quite so cold, balance out a mini skirt with a pair of boots and a beanie.
A sweatshirt and a trench make for an unlikely combination — but they look pretty damn good together.
Yes, that is a pair of pants that also have a skirt attached. Buy a pre-made set, or D.I.Y. the look yourself with some creative layering.
Thoughts on wearing a dress over a long-sleeve shirt over pants? Yup, we’re very much into it.
Try playing with different floral prints of the same color scheme. This look is a New Year’s outfit in waiting.
Instead of tucking an extra-large T-shirt into jeans, why not try layering it over a dress or skirt for added interest?
Puffers aren’t just practical — they look pretty chic with a skirt or dress, too.
Matching track suits are athleisure at its finest. Try a fun print, as seen here, or stick to a classic, solid-colored version.
Make your favorite summer frock seasonally-appropriate by topping it all off with an oversized chunky knit.
Embroidery makes everything better.
