January is a terrible time to be a fashion blogger in Chicago. Shooting outdoors in sub-zero temperature is never fun or advisable, so today I’m sharing with you a selection of outfits I shot in my condo. These outfits are typical of what I’ve been wearing lately–hopefully you’ll find some winter outfit inspiration here to guide you through the cold months.

1: Cobalt

I’ve had this cobalt dress from The Limited in my closet since before I began blogging. It was among the first outfits I featured, in fact. It’s so versatile, I still wear it all the time. In winter, I like to pair it with unique tights, like this¬†extremely wintery cable-knit pair, to really get it into the season.

I just purchased these cobalt pumps from Sole Society (during one of their many sales) and they’re pretty much my favorite shoes in my closet right now. They’re such a lovely, bright color. I can’t wait for spring so I can wear them both inside and out.

To keep things from getting altogether too dark in my wardrobe in the winter I like to wear brown hues on occasion, including brown tights. They pair well with fall outfits, like this one, which I featured back in November.

Sadly, this sweater dress has sold out at H&M (though keep your eyes peeled in store). It’s the warmest, softest sweater dress I’ve ever found, and I got it for 50% off in their post-Christmas sale. It’s actually the sister dress to this dress I featured last week. I tried on the white one and liked it so much I just grabbed this color from the rack when I went to check out, not realizing that this one is much longer. It was a happy discovery, though, because the length of this dress really enhances its warmth. I’d recommend an outfit like this for single-digit winter days.

Wearing black and navy together used to be a faux pas, then it became trendy. Winter is the only season to really work this trend, in my opinion. I like to pair thick black leggings with navy skirts and dresses. This kind of outfit is perfect for super cold days when its too cold to wear tights. Just swap out the booties for winter boots when you go outside and you’ll stay nice and warm.

I thought I’d make my last outfit a bit of a look ahead to warmer weather. This nude skirt goes on heavy rotation in the spring, paired with pastels and lighter colors. It works well in the winter, though, when paired with thick knits. It’s nice to bring some lightness into an outfit in the depths of winter, just make sure you choose a nice warm knit like this cashmere turtleneck so you don’t get too chilly.
