Candace Kristin's January Style Blog

It is January! Rather than feeling the post-holiday blues, let’s get excited for a warm and cozy Winter month.  Whether you are lounging fireside, out skiing/sledding with your family or running to and from errands, I’ve got you covered for all the essentials for this chilly month. 

 

Contrary to popular belief, it IS possible to stay warm and look stylishly.  Here are a number of my favorite pieces that will keep you seasonally appropriate all while looking amazing all winter season.

Cozy Hoodie

Our favorite hoodies have moved from the gym right into our daily life. Most designers are creating they own version from the traditional grey cotton to an array of colors and fabrics. You can find hoodies that have sparkle ties, cashmere to fitted or oversized. Wear it as a laying piece under your blazer or dress it up with joggers and booties. Its 2021, anything goes in hoodie land.

Thick Legging or Skinny legging Cords

We are all literally living in our legging’s day and night. Grab a pair that are extra thick with a bit of stretch. Wear the traditional black ones on snowy activities with your thick winter boots. Looking for a dressier option, find a pair in corduroy, pair with a silk top, booties and mulled wine.

Pom-Pom Hat

Take yourself back to your childhood with a super stylish pom-pom hat. Street style darlings have been sporting them all over their blogs from cashmere, to wool with fur or faux fur pompom. It happens to be one of my favorite winter accessories. Every time I wear one I feel chic and WARM, I guarantee you will too!

Chunky Sweaters

Celebrate sweater weather with a chunky oversized cardigan or turtleneck. There is nothing better than cozying up in a voluminous sweater. Balance out the capacious top with a pair with skinny jeans and a slender boot.

Fair Isle Sweater

This English eccentric knit is having a moment right now. These retro sweaters come in a variety of colors and patterns. It is super stylish when paired with wide-leg denim or leggings and a riding boot. Bonus points, mix in an animal print in the same color tones.

Oversized Scarf

A big scarf can double as a shawl or poncho. Wrap it around your neck like a street style blogger. I love them in either wool or for more of a luxury feel cashmere. They can be found in a plethora of colors. I prefer either a natural or check that can interchangeable with your wardrobe. Add over a blazer, over-sized sweater and skinny denim. Add a bootie or slip on to elongate your leg.

The Wool or Flannel Button Jacket

This ultra-cool layering piece have been spotted all over retailer’s floors from mass to designers. It’s like a throwback of the 90’s or your dad’s old shirt. Wear your wool or flannel as a jacket with leather leggings or cinched at the waist trouser. You can find one in a solid of grunge inspired large plaid.

Combat Boot

Find a pair that are faux fur lined. The lugged sole will keep you from sliding on the icy conditions. Perfect to wear running to and from in your causal jeans and chunky sweater. To elevate them, pair with a sweater dress and tights, which is so perfectly on trend!

Teddy Coat

This coat is sure to keep you cozy on those bitterly cold days, when all you want to do is stay in bed. The coat is synonymous for cozy with faux fur that resembles a teddy bear, hence the name.
