When it comes to winter apparel, most of us lean towards bundling up. But, the winter blues shouldn’t hinder style. You can still dress to impress during the season without sacrificing warmth. Instead of a solid color winter coat, opt for one that has a playful print. Or, add in some colorful accessories to bring in a pop of color to an otherwise neutral outfit. The opportunities are endless!
But if you’re still unsure how to style your cold-weather apparel, don’t fret: Stylist and editor Jasmine Snow joined TODAY to share some of her suggestions on how to pair your accessories and layers together. There are statement coats and snow boots, and even warm thermals — all from top-rated brands like Everlane, Good American, H&M, Skims and more.

Warm winter style seen on TODAY
RebDolls Dolce Double-Breasted Coat
Winter fashion tends to revolve around neutrals, such as brown, white and black. But for a change of speed, incorporate a pop of color to your base, such as this red statement coat.
Loft Patch Pocket High Rise Jeans
The patch pocket detail on these high rise jeans feel groovy. Pair with a chunky platform to fully dive into ’80s fashion.
Spanx Suit Yourself Long Sleeve Turtleneck
Believe it or not, this Spanx turtleneck is actually a bodysuit. It gives you the opportunity to ditch your old long sleeve for the seamless tuck this one offers.
Good American Boyfriend Shirt
No matter the season, you can never go wrong with denim — tops included. Designed in an oversized fit, this boyfriend-inspired shirt can go well with any basics.
Plush Fleece Lined Liquid Leggings
The upside of winter fashion? The cozy apparel. The downside? Leggings tend to only work as a base layer — but not this one. Since it is lined with fleece, you can opt to wear your favorite athleisure while still remaining warm.
Steve Madden Lavan Knee-High Boots
Besides being on-trend, the benefits of knee-high boots are that they offer a bit of coverage from the knee down. And this pair from Steve Madden should be comfortable to walk in, too, at just 2.5 inches in height.
Lulus Sarai Pointed-Toe Ankle Booties
Not into the high-knee boot trend? Opt for an ankle bootie instead for a bit of flare underneath your favorite pair of jeans or trousers.
Everlane The Cactus Leather Mini Sling Bag
This sling bag has a few neat features. For instance, it is made from cactus as a plant-based alternative that is more environmentally friendly than standard leather. The other noteworthy details include slip pockets, an adjustable strap and more room for small essentials.
Halfdays Sophia Legging
We can’t talk about winter fashion without base layers. Designed to be worn for winter sports and other ventures, these Halfdays leggings promise to be warm, breathable, compressing and moisture-wicking.
Spanx Women’s Long Sleeve Arm Tights
Yes, you read that correctly. These are tights for your arms, not for your legs. Like leg tights, this product is slightly sheer and lightweight for those who aren’t a fan of regular base leathers. The fabric gives you enough breathability and mobility to feel comfortable with heavy layers on top.
Sorel Women’s Kinetic Impact Conquest Sneaker Boot
Sorel combines the design of a sneaker and a boot into one for a winter-proof, flexible construction. For instance, it has a rubber outsole for traction and durablity, a waterproof upper, a microfleece top cover and 100g insulation.
Samii Ryan Smiley Mitten Vest
Besides the smiley face patch, another reason this vest might make you smile is that it has built-in mittens in place of pockets.
PerfectWhiteTee Ziggy Inside Out Crew
The brand says they turned a standard sweater “inside out” to expose the fleece and to provide all-around comfort.
Hatattack Fuzzy Faux Fur Mitten
These mittens are apparently just as soft on the inside just as they are on the outside, so your hands are kept cozy all-day long.
Editor’s note: Since Snow’s pick is out of stock, see an alternative option below.
Alo Yoga Faux Fur Mittens
They’re plush but mighty. Offering tons of warmth, according to reviews, Alo Yoga’s faux fur mittens are toasty to wear and water-resistant in case of any snow activities.
Banana Republic Cole Faux Fur Hat
Nothing screams winter more than a faux fur hat. This one from Banana Republic is in an aviator style that frames the face with long, fuzzy fabric.
Lulus Gabriette Shearling Slip-On Ankle Booties
Sometimes all you need is a slip-on bootie to feel set for the winter. Snow loves this pair from Lulus as they’re a classic shape that is simple to put on.
Banana Republic Heritage Shearling and Leather Belt Bag
For one, belt bags are a winter essential because unlike shoulder bags, they tend to feel more comfortable over heavy coats and jackets — and not fall off. And second, they’re extremely versatile to wear, like this Banana Republic shearling bag that can be used as a small belt bag or as a wallet.
Shiraleah Salome Orange Multi Plaid Oversized Scarf
For added coziness, this oversized chunky scarf is a must. Plus, the orange plaid adds a pop of color to your wardrobe.
WeWoreWhat Sherpa Ballet Flat
Wrap your toes with a soft sherpa fleece. Not only should these feel comfortable on your feet, they also are flattering due to the ballet flat trend.
Garnet Hill Cashmere Knee-High Socks
Cashmere is one of the warmest fabrics you can wear during cold weather. Add in this pair of Garnet Hill cashmere-nylon blend socks to your collection, which hit right below the knee and come in a a variety of colors to choose from.
Cozy looks for women previously seen on TODAY
Stylist and creative director J. Bolin previously stopped by TODAY to share five suggested cozy fall and winter looks.
Look 1: Cozy drama
Bolin’s first look comes with all the drama. Since most fall wardrobes (think of the capsule closet trend!) tend to lean on the neutral side, Bolin suggests incorporating lots of color into your wardrobe. He picked out an extra long cardigan from Akira for you to explore with various colors. To pair with a statement item like this, you can layer with other vivacious items, too, including the color block trousers and handbag below. For an extra wow factor, Bolin wrapped up this look with powerful sunnies.

Look 2: Cozy sleek
This monochromatic look can transition from the office to a formal dinner. Bolin says that wearing one color “makes the look more expensive looking, more luxurious and it helps to elongate the body.” You can experiment with this all red look (which also works well for the holidays, Bolin notes), or if you prefer, dress the look up with neutral colors instead. The red coat is made from a wool mix, so you’ll be kept warm as you strut to your work holiday party, and the matching blazer and trouser combo means you can wear the set from season to season.

Look 3: Booted to perfection
The first thing you’ll notice about this look are the over-the-knee boots. These shoes are one of the many reasons why Bolin adores this cozy outfit as they help to elongate the body. “I’d normally start an outfit out when dressing a client from the top down, but in this case, a boot is an essential for this time of the year,” he says. This boot comes with a zip-up feature for you to easily slip on and off. But what makes this “bigger than life,” Bolin adds, is the long cardigan and slimming turtleneck. For a bit of edge, the stylist tops this look with a comfortable pair of jeggings (yes, they’re still in!),

Look 4: Cozy muted
Bolin says this fit is an “effortless option” for men, and here’s why: “Sweaters should tell a story,” just like this Fashion Nova pick. It has an artistic pattern that stands out against the muted trench coat. “This time of the year can be cold in the morning, hot in the afternoon, and freezing by evening, so layering is the cozy key,” Bolin adds. To keep things simple, he recommends this pair of cargo joggers for some flare and comfort.

Boohoo Elastic Waist Buckle Cargo Jogger
Ebifin Notch Lapel Double Breasted Long Trench Coat
Look 5: The cozy mix master
The stylist says that this look is an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone, calling the fall and winter as “the season to challenge yourselves.” In fact, Bolin says, “adding some bold prints and colors will have you feeling bold and looking confident walking into any room with a mixed and master moment like this.” To start, this plaid overcoat does all the talking. With a combination of the solid turtleneck and red leather pants, you’ll surely make a statement. Layer with a set of combat boots to tie it all together.
