Hot Fashion Trends this Cold Winter

This year, Paducah is expected to see an extremely cold and long winter. We are already beginning to feel the temperature drop, so it’s time to pack up your tank tops and criminally short shorts for the winter and start dressing for the weather.  

With each season change, new fashions styles emerge. Last year, the popular fashion trends of the winter included puffer coats, flair leggings, chunky sweaters, turtlenecks and Uggs. While these styles are still somewhat relevant, more trends are emerging. As it gets colder, here’s the hot fashion trends you need to know.  

The main thing you need to know about this year’s popular fashion is that it is heavily inspired by the 90s and early 2000s. Simple, understated outfits are on trend. This means that you can likely find lots of affordable and trendy clothing items from thrift stores or even your own parents’ closets. You don’t have to drain your bank account to be on trend, explore affordable alternatives! Take advantage of the thrifty trend and get cute clothes for cheap. In Paducah, you can find lots of good stuff at Goodwill or St. Vincent. There are also several consignment stores around town. Ditch the mall and get creative! 

Take a look outside. Just like how nature’s bright colors of spring and summer are fading, so is the popularity of bright colors for the season. Neons are out, neutrals are in. This winter, you’ll want to make sure your closet is stocked with shades of brown, black, gray, and white, as well as denim. Of course, if you feel like this particular style choice dulls your colorful personality, don’t throw out all of your fun and bright clothes, wear whatever colors you like!

The next hot trend is baggy clothes. Can’t find a pair of jeans that fit? No problem- they don’t have to.  Another bonus of baggy fashion is that it is so comfortable. No more having to pick between sitting and standing jeans! Baggy fashion is all the rage- from jeans, sweats, hoodies, crewnecks, and coats. If you aren’t too big on the baggy look, try pairing baggy jeans or sweatpants with a tighter fitting top, or leggings with an oversized crewneck or hoodie.  

While denim has always been a staple in fashion, it is becoming even more relevant. Long straight leg jeans with no rips are slowly pushing ripped skinny jeans out of style. American Eagle and Levi’s jeans have lots of trendy options, or, if you don’t want to spend $80 on jeans, try a thrift or consignment store. Remember they don’t have to fit perfect; baggy is ok!

Staying on theme with the 90’s style, the last main hot trend of the winter is platform shoes. Platforms have already been making their comeback in fashion, but they are seeing an even more rapid increase in popularity this season. Almost any shoe you could think of is being made platform style now. Consider adding a staple platform shoe to your shopping cart of Christmas list from brands like Converse, Vans, Dr. Martin, Ugg, New Balance, Nike, or a more affordable option from any other brand you like to shop.  

If you still need more inspiration, check out outfit ideas on Pinterest. If none of these trends suit your style, then wear whatever you want to wear! The great thing about fashion is that there is no right or wrong- only what you feel good in or don’t feel good in. These are the popular trends, but that doesn’t mean you have to follow these in order to look good or be cool. Starting your own trends and being unique is just as cool as any of these popular trends.  

So, whatever you are wearing this winter, trendy or original, make sure you stay warm and feel good in what you’re wearing.
