4 Essentials for a Fabulously Feminine Winter Wardrobe

The standard winter wardrobe doesn't always make women feel very feminine. Bulky coats and big boots aren't usually the standard recipe for a feminine look, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your personal style to shine through! Even so, you can easily break some preconceived notions about what you can and can't wear during the winter. Here are a few ways you can add some feminine charm to your wardrobe during the winter.

Skirts and Dresses

You might think it's time to put away your skirts and your dresses due to the cold weather, but you would be surprised at the different ways you can still be ultra feminine in freezing weather. Getting some denim or corduroy skirts with black or maroon tights can be a warm enough to keep you warm. Or even looking to dark floral modest dresses with a large knit scarf and knee-high boots under a solid winter trench coat. And for instance, many casual skirts and dresses look great with leggings underneath. Customize your clothing by looking in your closet and pairing jackets, coats, and accessories with your favorite dresses. This creates a unique and warm look while also saving you money.

Trench Coats

This is a powerful classic winter essential, having been in use since the days of WWI. Wearing a trench coat is another great way to keep warm, especially if it's a long one. Trench coats are also incredibly functional (after all, military officers wore them), and they'll keep your legs warm if you choose to wear a skirt or dress. Many trench coats also come with feminine embellishments, so don't feel like you're boxed into a single style.

Rain Boots

On slushy days, rain boots can save you. They're perfect for wearing to work so that your tights don't get wet. When you get to your office, you can change into another pair of shoes that you'll wear the rest of the day. Rain boots are also in style right now, so they come with lots of fun, flirty designs printed on them. There are also more feminine styles available, so shop around to find the pair that suits you.


Scarves are another classic in winter gear - and pretty key to your health in the winter. They come in a wide range of beautiful colors and styles. Think about how beautiful a big wool scarf looks when it's on. Infinity scarves are another great option. They hug your neck so that you're warm, and they also frame your face, making you the center of attention.

When you're planning your winter wardrobe, be sure to add in a few items that make you feel charming and confident. Also make sure that the staples that you add into your wardrobe will keep you comfortably warm. There's no reason that femininity and winter practicality can't be one and the same.
