Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips

It’s time for one of my favorite posts of the month—10 style tips or tricks to try! Below I have put together a list of inspiring images and some little fashion tidbits about each look. I hope you find these ideas as inspiring as I did…
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Layer coats and cardigans for fresh take on wearing your winter staples. I love the idea of layering a cashmere sweater under a lightweight coat under a warm wool trench.
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Try a turtleneck. This once-forgotten style staple from our youth has made a major comeback as of late. Layer one under a sweater, a jacket, or even your favorite floral print dress. This is a great way to recycle your favorite warm weather pieces for the cooler months.
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Get geeky. Geek chic is in! Embrace the trend by mixing in small masculine touches like a skinny tie, a collared tee (buttoned all the way up), or a fun pair of chunky, black-rim glasses (fake or real).
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Mix and match your favorite sparkly necklaces to add an understated festive touch to your winter wardrobe. Also, be sure to check out my tips on wearing statement necklaces too.
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Embrace your wellies. While some may argue that rain boots are simply unfashionable, I beg to differ… Invest in a pair that is brightly colored to give your look a fun and flirty finish. Fashion isn’t supposed to be so serious, so why not?
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Sweaters and sequins were a match made in fashion heaven. Pair your chunky knits with your favorite sequined or beaded skirts or dresses and finish off the look with a pair of opaque tights and boots.
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Add some sparkle by topping off a windswept hairdo with a prim little brooch. This is a easy way to dress up almost any outfit.
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Skirt up! Avoid the bag-lady look by pairing midi skirts with close-fitting tops and sleek accessories. This is a lovely look for fall or winter—it’s professional, fashionable, and warm (once you add a jacket). I am particularly fond of the oversize daytime clutch. It’s the perfect finishing touch!
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips

Cape yourself. Coats can get, well, a bit boring when you’re wearing the same ones day in and day out. For a fresh spin on cool-weather-warmth, try out a chic cape. Wear them as you would a coat.
Tuesday Ten: December Style Tips
Get the blues. For a festive spin on the holidays, forget red and green and instead, go blue! I love how my guest blogger, Anna, styled this outfit for the holidays. Adorable!

    sweaters and sequins is my fave look! i am going to wear your LC lauren conrad rose gold sequin skirt with a cream cashmere sweater to my holiday party because it is “”business casual”” and i can’t wear anything too dressy. :)

  • suzanne

    I love Hunter boots and sequins! :)


  • hooleywithaz

    i tend to get a lot more creative with my hairstyles in the winter, because our uniform here in minnesota aka the tundra is boots, jeans, sweater, wool coat. it gets so cold, so you have to find style in places other than your bundled clothes!

  • Kelby Peachey

    I love the broach idea. I’ve done it before but haven’t in awhile. I’ll definitely have to give it a try again. :)


  • Paulina Mo

    Yes! I’ve embraced my wellies. Great & Cute tips Lauren!

    Sadly, where I live, whatever pretty outfits I come up with are covered by a coat. Really, I sometimes keep it on while in class, because it’s so cold. But I am glad turtlenecks are back, I completely forgot I had those.
