Hi friend! ✨ Julie Holiday here, your go-to style guru, bringing you the hottest scoop on winter fashion straight from the heart of Tallmadge, Ohio. In my recent adventure to the local Goodwill, I unearthed the treasures of "Cold Weather Couture."

Spotted: soft fabrics that embrace you like a warm hug, thick textures that scream coziness, and a palette of winter neutrals that will have you slaying the seasonal style game.

Get ready to elevate your winter wardrobe with me. I hope you take away some serious inspiration and embrace the coziness.


First: Start with a snug turtleneck



Starting with the choice of a snug, white, or neutral shirt, lays the foundation for a fashion statement that exudes elegance. The versatility of such a piece opens the door to a myriad of styling possibilities. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the art of layering proves a dual-purpose approach, seamlessly blending practicality with style. Not only does it serve as a shield against the chill, but it also transforms a simple outfit into a multi-dimensional masterpiece. So, whether it's a cozy cardigan, a trendy vest, or a classic blazer, embrace the layers to elevate your fashion game and make a lasting impression.




Winter White



Winter white, offers a refreshing pause from the traditional dark hues associated with the colder months. If you're anything like me, you'll shudder at the idea of leaving home, so layering is key...always! Embracing this timeless trend involves mastering the art of wearing white in a way that exudes sophistication and warmth.

Start by choosing winter white pieces in cozy fabrics like wool, cashmere, or faux fur to add a touch of luxury and ensure comfort in chilly temperatures.


Whether it's a tailored white coat, ivory-colored trousers, or a cozy knit sweater, winter white invites you to embrace a timeless elegance that defies the conventional norms of seasonal fashion. So, confidently embrace this captivating trend with me into the winter wonderland.



Pop of Skin



In the realm of winter fashion, there's an artful allure in the subtlety of revealing just a hint of skin while wearing cozy layers. I love finding interesting necklines, cool cutouts, and unique shapes in the usual pieces we all wear. It's a great way to step it up a notch.


The elegance lies in the delicate balance between warmth and allure, where a strategic cutout becomes a statement of sophistication. A modest glimpse of skin, perhaps through a tastefully placed cutout or an off-shoulder neckline, still adds style without compromising the winter-appropriate coziness. It's a testament to the notion that true elegance lies not in excess but in the thoughtful curation of details, turning winter attire into a canvas where a subtle pop of skin becomes the epitome of tasteful allure.




Overstated Accessories



Embracing larger-than-life accessories during the winter months is a brilliant strategy to infuse a dash of personality into our covered ensembles. Check out these huge ear muffs! The season often sees us bundled up in layers, and a generously sized accessory serves as the perfect style statement, ensuring that our carefully curated outfits don't get overshadowed by bulky outerwear.


Whether it's an oversized scarf, chunky knit beanie, or statement earrings, these bold accessories command attention and elevate the overall aesthetic. So, this winter, let your accessories take center stage, proving that even when wrapped in layers, your style can remain larger than life.


Layer Up with a Vest



Despite what Mean Girls says, a vest is a versatile and indispensable go-to piece on bitterly cold winter days, seamlessly blending functionality with fashion. I love finding great patterns or vintage prints - like this houndstooth vest that I took home.


You can layer a vest over a cozy sweater or pair it with a long-sleeved shirt. I prefer to have a snug turtleneck so that it doesn't add extra bulkiness. Choose from quilted, puffer, or faux fur options to tailor the aesthetic to your taste, and let the vest become a player in your winter wardrobe.



The "IT" Coat




As the winter unfolds, the puffer jacket has emerged as the "it" coat. While it's not my favorite because it adds such heaviness, many make it look great! There are so many styles of this jacket: long, short, big puffs, little puffs, etc. If you're needing a jacket still this winter, opt for a puffer style.


You can wear it with causal denim, layered over a sleek dress, or while sled riding. I found several styles at the Tallmadge Ohio Location located at 501 South Avenue. Visit now.



 

With soft fabrics, cozy textures, and a palette of winter neutrals in tow, your seasonal style game is destined for new heights. I bring you with me when I visit Goodwill Akron locations and I encourage you to keep the search alive! We have some true treasures to be found in Goodwill! I trust you've gathered inspiration aplenty and are ready to embrace the warmth and coziness that the season brings.


Stay warm and may your winter be as stylish as it is delightful! 💫


Thank you!
