How to Dress Cooler Without Buying Anything New

Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour

We’re about to reach that point in the season where we get stuck in this weird place of feeling like we have nothing to wear. Maybe it's because we've used up all our creative outfit ideas, or maybe we are just sick of all our winter clothes but don’t really want to buy anything new. After all, spring is coming (eventually), and we all have our sights on the light, bright, and most importantly not remotely wintery pieces in all the new arrivals sections of all our favorite sites. Spending anything additional on a coat or boots just feels redundant.

So what’s one to do? Well, as I've pointed out before, one solution is to look to what your favorite celebrities are wearing and essentially copy their outfits. Since then, however, I also remembered that street style is abundant with inspiration. Below I highlighted six easy style tips to help you dress cooler throughout the rest of winter without having to buy anything new. Of course, if you’re still in the market for anything—no judgment—we’ve included a little shopping to help you get the looks, too.

1. Combine All Your Neutrals

This works especially well with of-the-moment beige and white.

But your black, navy, gray, and brown pieces will also definitely do the trick.

2. Give Grandma Dressing a Go

Does the name make a bit more sense when you see this picture? Think combining all your most eccentric pieces and it somehow coming together perfectly.

Oh, and a silk scarf is non-negotiable.

3. Add an Un-Seasonal Item

Surprise your fellow winter warriors by adding a non-seasonal item such as a summery straw bag into the mix.

Don't wait until spring to sneak some tie-dye into your look.

4. Try Wearing Two Bags

Because two bags are better—and more eye-catching—than one.

5. Mix Your Prints

Leopard and logo is a great place to start.

If you're into a more subtle look, combine different versions of the same print for equal appeal.

6. Double Up on Outerwear

Assuming you have two blazers lying around, why not layer them?
