1. Layer with Thermals
I get really tired of just wearing sweaters all Winter long but I can’t wear my Spring, Summer, or even Fall clothes without being really really cold.
The ultimate way I’ve found to be able to wear my whole wardrobe during Winter is by layering with thermals.
Thermal under shirts and leggings are a great way to layer on top of each other and trap your body heat so that you stay warm and cozy, even if you might not be wearing the warmest clothes on top.
Sometimes, when it’s really cold, I’ll layer two thermal shirts under a shirt or sweater and it will keep my warm all day long. The same goes for thermal leggings.
Best Thermal Under Shirts and Leggings
I’ve linked my favorite thermal shirts and leggings to layer in:
- Women’s 2 Pack Thermal Compression Long Sleeve Shirts
- Thermal Fleece Lined Cami Tank
- Lace Thermal Fleece Lined Camisole
- Thick Thermal Fleece Lined Leggings/Pants
2. Double Up Your Socks
I don’t know about you, but my feet are FREEZING year round, but especially during the Winter.
Even when I wear thick Winter boots, my feet are usually still pretty cold, so now I double up on my socks and that is the best way I’ve found to still keep wearing my cute boots and sneakers in the Winter without my toes getting frostbite lol!
If you’re wondering how to look cute in Winter, this is a very practical and simple tip that will let you wear all your favorite shoes without your feet freezing.

4. Invest in Boots with Treads and Traction
I get really annoyed when I see these big fashion magazines giving us ‘how to look cute in Winter’ guides with silly and impractical tips that will definitely not keep you warm in the colder months.
My personal experience is that when it’s cold, I put aside my cute heeled boots and pull out the big boys: thick threaded boots that have traction so that I won’t slip and slide on the snow.
Invest in good Winter boots that look as stylish as Winter boots can, and reuse them every Winter.
My biggest tip for finding Winter boots is to stay away from the high, stiletto heeled boots – can you imagine the disaster if you’re wearing those on an icy sidewalk?!
Best Winter Boots
My favorite brand for Winter boots is Timberland. I bought my first Timberland boots almost a decade ago and I still wear the same ones every Winter and they have never let me down.
I’ve linked a few that look cute and will keep your legs warm (and have good grip!):
- Timberland Ankle Lace Up Boots
- Timberland Waterproof Lace Up Boots
- Timberland Waterproof Tall Fashion Boots
5. Stay Stylish with Your Bag

11. Give the Illusion of Wearing Sheer Tights
I have found the ultimate hack to making it look like you’re wearing sheer tights when in reality you have multiple fleece lined leggings on!
Literally all you need to do is wear a pair of nude fleece lined leggings (make sure the nude color matches your skin tone) and then put a pair of sheer tights on top. The nude legging underneath will look like your skin even though you’ll be super warm and cozy underneath.
If you live in a very cold place, you might want to wear two pair of thermal leggings before you put the tights on top.
Here are some fleece nude leggings and sheer tights to help you get the look:
12. Hop on the Trend: Balaclavas
Balaclavas have taken over the fashion scene this year and it’s the perfect time because it’s Winter and they keep you SO warm.

The best place to find really good quality, hand knitted balaclavas is Etsy. They’re usually very low i stock, though, because the sellers only make a few, so if you like one make sure to order it fast.

13. Skinny Jeans and Leggings Under Looser Pants
I haven’t worn skinny jeans in the last few years for any reason other than as an extra layer under my looser pants during the Winter.
This Winter hack is a great way to make use of old skinny jeans you don’t wear anymore!
All I do is put on straight leg jeans or wide leg jeans that are super trendy right now over my skinny jeans and that way I have an extra layer of warmth and the skinny jeans are completely hidden underneath.
