Even though the first official day of winter is a few weeks away, it definitely feels like winter in the Northwest. With temperatures dipping into the 30s, I’m embracing my over the knee boots and all the cute winter jackets. I’m feeling inspired to go out my style comfort zone this winter so I wanted to share the pieces currently in my wardrobe rotation as well as a few winter outfit ideas.
Here are 5 Cute Winter Outfit Ideas You Can Wear This Season:
Cute Winter Outfit Ideas #1: The Over the Knee Boots & Dress Look
You don’t have to abandon your adorable summer and fall dresses this winter. If you want to wear favorite printed dress but the temperatures have dropped, layer a comfy chenille sweater and over the knee boots! This cute winter outfit is great for going out. I’d also wear this outfit to brunch or on a shopping trip with my sister.
Winter Style Tip: You can always tie an elastic band to your sweater if you want a tighter fit to highlight your waist. I took one of my hair ties to create a synch waist.

Cute Winter Outfit Ideas #2: The Fair Isle Printed Sweater Outfit
There’s nothing like a cozy festive sweater for the Holiday season. I’ve recently become obsessed with Fair Isle printed sweaters because of their fun colors and prints. The Fair Isle print became popular in the 1920s and 1930s and I predict this print will become trendy again this winter season. Pair your favorite Fair Isle sweater with skinny jeans and black boots OR with your favorite pair of mom jeans, grey hat, and blanket scarf!

Cute Winter Outfit Ideas#3: The Sherpa Lined Jacket
I don’t know what it is about this winter season but I’m venturing more out of my style. I wouldn’t have worn this Sherpa lined jacket last year but I took this jacket with me to Pittsburgh and absolutely loved it. It was a great travel jacket for the airport and exploring the city. I wore this Sherpa lined jacket both on the airplane and exploring Market Square in Pittsburgh!
Take your Sherpa jacket with you to your next holiday trip. You’ll be comfy on the plane and warm as you finish last minute Christmas shopping trips in your hometown!

Cute Winter Outfit Ideas #4: The Puffer Jacket & Dad Sneakers Look
I swear I had a puffy jacket like this in elementary school… so when I started seeing puffer jackets at New York Fashion Week earlier this year, I was surprised – but I really shouldn’t have been because fashion cycles over and over again. This trend has made its way through the runway shows and already at major retailers.
Puffer jackets are always in style in the Northwest out of pure necessity. This particular puffer jacket has a hood which is a must have in Seattle. I also packed this jacket with me to my Pittsburgh trip and it saved me when the rain hit this last Saturday!
Style your puffer jacket with a pair of skinny jeans or jeggings and your favorite dad sneakers. Whether you love or hate the dad sneaker trend, their comfort is indisputable. These dad sneakers were the perfect airport and city shoes!

Cute Winter Outfit Ideas #5: The Velvet Pleated Skirt and Tall Boots Look
I rediscovered my velvet pleated skirt from last winter and knew I wanted to create a holiday inspired look with it. I was already planning on packing over the knee boots for my trip to Pittsburgh. I thought it would be fun to style something different by pairing the tall boots with pleated maxi skirt!
Complete your holiday outfit with a cozy turtleneck sweater and a grey hat! I’d personally wear this outfit to a date night or a family holiday get together.
