Winter clothing trends come and go, ranging from the different styles, colors, layers. 

“[How many people do you see wearing shorts in the wintertime?] Per day, like half,” Ava Jackson said.

Shorts in the winter time have mixed emotions. From being completely against wearing shorts year round. A good majority of people wear shorts, despite the chilly weather.

“If you’re wearing basketball shorts that’s one thing but if you’re wearing shorts for the outfit that’s different,” Deborah Kelecha said.

When it comes to clothes it’s difficult to get the right balance of “cute and comfy,” but it is easy to shoot for both when dressing for the winter. 

“If you can’t get both then probably make it more on the cute side,” Ava Jackson said.

Layers play a big role when it comes to winter. When you are layering your outfits, try to stay warm while still looking good.

“[I] prefer winter clothes because you can layer more, and layering is cute and you’re still comfortable,” Deborah Kelecha said.

When considering making an outfit colors play a big factor. Pick the wrong colors and you’ll end up clashing. 

“It’s pretty easy, [I] have a lot of weird statement piece stuff that doesn’t make sense together, but that’s why [I] like to wear it together,” Ilan Cuomo-Wilkerson said.

In an article by Yelena Johnson said that “seasonal colors are hues that mirror the shades seen in the four seasons of nature.” Seasonal colors are a good way to stay up on seasonal and current trends. The Seasons naturally supply a great color pallet.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        

“[What colors are the best for winter?] beige, forest green, white can be a good color just depends, and of course black,” Cuomo-Wilkerson said. 

Just like colors, patterns are easy to clash, but it’s important that you don’t clash your patterns. There are a variety of different patterns, some more liked than others. 

“[What is the most popular winter pattern?] Probably plaid, and flannel because of the pajama pants,” Cuomo-Wilkerson said.

Winter is a good time to explore your wardrobe, experiment with different styles, and take some cute photos.
