Not quite ready to go for a bright coat or bold sweaters but still want to add some color to your winter wardrobe? No worries. I got you. A super easy way to infuse color into your winter outfits is by adding colorful winter accessories. It’s freezing, so you need gloves, hats, and scarves, right? Choose those essential accessories in your favorite brights. Here’s an example that I’m loving. How adorable is the (only $22.90)?

There seems to be an expectation for our wardrobes to go dark during the winter season. Perhaps grey, black, and navy clothing reflects our feelings about the dreary weather conditions. A great alternative, though, is to bring your own sunshine with yellows or to evoke happiness in shades of orange. Bright statement colors make us happy.
By the way, shades of orange have been having a major moment since 2018. I’m excited to see this color trend hold strong in 2019. From living coral to burnt orange, it’s fair to say that shades of orange have reached IT color status.

Today’s featured dress from Soft Surroundings was a must-have for me because of its beautiful orange-red-brown color. Of course, I also love that it has a boatneck, perfect for draping off the shoulder.
This knit is also ideal for winter because it’s long with long sleeves. Also, its silhouette is perfect for layering over or under. This dress can be styled to suit almost any kind of wintry weather conditions.
Prefer to pack away your dresses during the winter? No worries. There are so many other ways to work statement colors into your winter style. A statement coat is always a good option (see more on that here). Bright sweaters are also cool options (shop some of my favorites on sale here).

The weather outside is frightful. But, while some days might warrant sweats and leggings, on some wintry days, you want to dress a bit more delightful. Here are the colorful layers I’m wearing under my puffer coat. From a colorful graphic print sweater (now under $30) to boots that pack a pretty punch, this is one of my go-to uniforms for feeling like myself on dreary weather days.

A winter storm dumped piles of snow on St. Louis over the weekend. It was such a serious winter storm that I got home on Friday, and I was snowed in until Sunday. By Sunday, the snowfall had slowed, the city was able to get streets cleaned, and I was ready to get back outside. The look for the occasion? A Quagga Green hooded vest in 2019’s favorite plaid trend. The vest kept my style in “check.”

Plaid is going to be hugely popular all this year. So, when I saw this Quagga Green vest, I had to have it. Quagga Green is a sustainable line based in St. Louis. Everything in the line is made using recycled and/or renewable resources. The website officially launches in Spring 2019, but you can shop the collection at Whole Foods stores right now.
I love this vest because it’s such a cool, fashion-forward way to rock the plaid trend. And, the hood is both fashionable and functional. It was just what I needed to keep my head protected from the flurries on Sunday.
This vest has an open front with a toggle closure at the neckline. I belted mine to cinch the look together. I was only wearing a and underneath, so the vest pulled the entire look together.

Scarf prints were a huge trend in 2018. If you were a fan, you’ll be excited to know that the trend is holding strong this year. The updates? Silky scarf prints are getting more colorful. As you can imagine, I’m so here for that.
Zara was a go-to source for scarf print styles last fall. If there’s an item you had your eye on, you might get lucky and get it for about 60% off right now. Remember my favorite style? It’s now on major sale with limited sizes left. I will certainly be rocking that dress into spring because of its perfect-for-spring colors.

Today’s dress is another discounted Zara find. When the price dropped below $20, I couldn’t resist ordering one. It comes in a few difference designs. I gravitated toward this one because it looked like a perfect complement to my . I was right. I’ve been so pleased with how versatile this standout belt has been (see it styled here, here, here, here, and here).
Would you believe it’s been warm enough for me to be outside with no tights nor coat in St. Louis? The temperature has been in the 60s for a minute. But, we’re currently preparing for some serious snowfall today. I fully enjoyed the warm weather while I could.
