Don’t let your wardrobe freeze up this winter. Freshen up winter essentials like coats, boots and sweaters to create a bold look with everyday clothing items.
Flat boots are a trendy alternative to Uggs. Creative embellishments like buttons and scrunching add individualized style.
Gray and nude have replaced black and white as popular winter neutrals. Sweaters, dresses, ties and clutches in these colors bring subtle, stylish change to traditional wardrobes.
Coats with bold colors or patterns instantly liven up a bland winter wardrobe while making a visible statement all winter long.
Jackets worn shorter and slimmer near the waist are popular for men this winter, as well as slim-fit pants that fold around the ankle.
