Warm Colors for Winter

Don't Put Away Your Warm-Colored Clothing

Don’t pack up your warm-colored clothing!

Just because winter is in full swing doesn’t mean you have to conform to a life filled with black and gray as your only color options. I, for one, prefer warm-colored clothing because it makes me much happier! It literally boosts my mood to wear red, yellow, and brown – so I wanted to share how I style those tones for these drearier months.

First and foremost, it’s about choosing the right items to style.

When I mention that I enjoy wearing warmer-toned clothing, I also want to clarify that I wear warm clothing (in general). Chunky cardigans, booties, trench coats, oversized sweaters, etc. – these are just a few of the items I gravitate towards for the winter months. When I saw this caramel-colored cardigan from Chicwish, I knew I had to get it immediately. It matches my favorite pair of cognac booties, and it’s the perfect way to dress up a “jeans and tee” kind of outfit.

Let me just note that it was insanely windy and close to 30° the day that these photos were taken, but I was actually quite warm in this outfit. This cardigan provided an excellent amount of heat – almost as if I was wearing a cute blanket as a coat! 😉 Brown is actually proven to evoke feelings of warmth and security – so maybe that is why I felt so comfortable, even in the cold. So, grab the clothing you may have considered only appropriate for autumn, and boost your mood right now!

    That color is amazing on you! I prefer cooler tones on myself because of my skin tone BUT I love the look of warmer tones better on other people lol!

    You look amazing (!!). I Love the idea of wearing warm tones in the winter. Personally, what I wear totally affects how I feel—you look good, you feel good—type of thing. These types of colors make me feel calm and happy.

    I’m always guilty of defaulting to my blacks and greys during the winter months, but it can be fun to keep color in the mix, and I love your fun cardigan!

    Lol I personally wear whatever color I want! It’s often sunny in the desert even when it’s cold in the winter time, so I don’t feel totally odd wearing neon if I really wanted to (especially workout clothes). I do love a good brown teddy jacket though! I love this outfit you’ve put together xx

    I tend to lean towards black during the winter months but I’ve been SO much better about climbing out of that comfort zone lately. Love this outfit and that cozy cardigan!
