As we head into the final month of fall, it's time to start thinking about the holiday season and winter, especially since winter clothing will soon hit the stores. Here are some trends to be excited about and incorporate into your wardrobe for this winter season!
1. Loungewear Sets
Matching loungewear sets are both comfy and versatile. They can be worn casually with your favorite sneakers or boots while running errands or at home with a cozy pair of socks. Loungewear sets are currently trending on Amazon and have been recently featured on the Instagram pages of top retailers like Old Navy and Target. These will definitely serve as a great staple for your winter wardrobe.
2. Small Hoops and Chain Necklaces
This timeless accessory combination can take your most basic outfit to the next level. Hoop earrings and chain necklaces come in a variety of metals – gold, silver, rose gold – and sizes.

Small chunky hoop earrings and gold chain necklaces are currently trending. They have been featured both together and separately on the Instagrams of Macy's, Nordstrom and H&M.
3. Sherpa Coats
Winter style is about combining style and comfort, which sherpa coats do perfectly. Sherpa is a soft fleece that resembles the look of sheep's wool. It provides warmth and adds texture to any winter outfit. Sherpa coats vary in length, and you can either buy short ones that stop at the waist or ones longer in length. Sherpa material is also used as liner for other kinds of coats and jackets, including denim. It's definitely a winter essential!

Belt bags, also known as fanny packs, are the perfect balance between style and functionality. They can either be worn around the waist as a belt or slung over the shoulder. For the winter time, they can be worn around your favorite coat as well!
5. Neutral Colors
Neutral colored clothing and accessories are another timeless trend. They can be worn with anything such as denim, animal prints, such as leopard and snake print, or statement looks with bright colors. There are a variety of neutral shades including sand, camel, buff, cream, ivory and beige. Currently, monochrome outfits that mix and match these different shades are trending. Neutrals are a staple for every season, so they are perfect for winter!
6. Double Circle Belts
Double circle belts are a cheap, yet stylish, alternative to the popular Gucci Belt. These stylish belts add a luxe twist to any simple outfit.
7. V-Neck Sweaters
V-Neck sweaters with a slouchy look are another stylish must-have for your winter closet. Some trendy ways to wear them are with jeans and knee-high boots or midi-length skirts and ankle boots.

8. Mini Backpacks
Like belt bags, mini backpacks are both stylish and practical. They provide the perfect amount of space to carry around your essentials, especially if you don't want to tote a big bag around in the snow. In addition to being worn on your back like a traditional backpack, these can also be worn over your shoulder or carried by the strap like a purse.
