Ways to Dress Warmly and Comfortably for Winter

A winter wardrobe for women should include curated, functional pieces with the key focus on versatile items that can be worn in many different ways.

The focus of a woman’s winter wardrobe should be on versatility with key pieces that can be turned into different styles.

When dressing for the cold, it’s important to think about layering and contrasting textures with both thin and thick fabrics to stay warm, don’t be fooled into thinking women’s loungewear sets are only for wearing at home.

Ways to Dress Warmly and Comfortably for Winter


This winter season, it’s time to invest in a few new pieces to make your winter wardrobe complete. The weather has been unpredictable lately, which is why it’s important to have a few go-to pieces that can withstand whatever the weather throws at you. Wearing warm clothes will not only keep us warm but also increase our confidence.

Wool Sweaters or Hoodies

Wool sweaters are the best choice for winter. (Wool is an excellent insulator, which is its major strength). One of the major reasons people choose wool for their winter wardrobe is because it is a natural insulator. Wool can keep your body warm by trapping air and restricting the flow of cold air. However, if you’re anything like me, you can find wool to be very itchy when worn against the skin so for that reason I opt for hoodies and fleeces which are softer and more tactile.

Layer Up

Oversized hoodie dress

Wear layers to trap in the warmth, start with a close-fitting layer underneath like a vest top, t-shirt or cami top. Next wear a long-sleeve thermal top and team it with an oversized hoodie dress like this one which is super snuggly, it’s the winter equivalent of the little black dress.

reversible gilet

If you’re not keen on wearing big coats (especially when going in and out of shops) a padded gilet is a good alternative. This one from Femme Luxe is reversible too so it increases your options for wearing.

Warm Legs

wide leg jeans

If you’re looking for ways to keep your legs warm this winter, there are plenty of options available. For style points, wide-leg jeans are very fashionable right now and they aren’t as cold as ripped jeans for women! Thick tights with a skirt over the top, fleece-lined leggings or a pair of joggers for relaxing at home will keep you really warm this winter.

Winter Coat

Invest in a good winter coat! (A coat can be worn season-round and will last many years if taken care of properly). If you’re heading out for a walk on a crisp winter’s morning then nothing will serve you better than a good winter coat.

Winter Accessories

winter boots

Finish off your look with a good pair of chunky winter boots to keep your feet warm and dry, a long woolly scarf and a hat with matching gloves to keep your head and hands warm. There’s no need to hide instead once winter comes calling.
