What to Wear this January for Women
With January and New Year comes the excitement of changing your wardrobe, replacing old summer dresses with quilted coats, tank tops with comfortable sweatshirts and flip-flops with a nice pair of thigh high boots. The shelves of your favorite stores are filled with new stock waiting for you to come and grab it. The new collections and clothes are something we all get excited over. We are given a new chance to fix our lives. We have picked a few outfits for you take inspiration from this January. You can mix and match or recreate the outfit it is totally up to you, though we always recommend adding a personal touch to everything you do so it feels like an original. The best thing about the sweater weather is that you can even make your pajamas look like a presentable outfit if you have a nice long coat to wear on top. You do not need to worry about ironing cotton shirts that take forever because winter clothes mostly do not need to be pressed. So, you can sleep in for a few more minutes in your cozy quilt (trust me, the feeling is heavenly).

Many of us experience a lot of rain this month and for such dull days, I recommend adding a pop of color with your outfit!
↓ 30 – Faux Fur
Oh, the warm and soft feeling of fur. Wrap your neck in soft faux feathers this January to add bling to your outfit. You can even wear fur jackets and coats that give a sexy teddy bear vibe while keeping you extremely warm. If you feel like you do not want to go too overboard and keep it low-key hen some fur around the collar will work just fine. Here are some great ideas on Outfits with Faux Fur Coat.

Hoodie season from November to March means these are our jumpers, our shirts, our dresses, our outerwear, our stay at home wear, everything. Hoodies’ versatility is amazing.

Replace the jeans with sweatpants and voila, another outfit. Play around with what you have to create different looks.
↓ 28 – Comfort Wear
Who says sweatpants are only for your couch or gym? Their comfort is not parallel to anything else in the world and that’s why we will wear it where ever we want to.

Slide on your fur slides for a more sexy yet comfortable look.
↓ 27 – Trendy Tracksuits
Tracksuits will be the big thing this year. Don’t be scared that does not mean that you have to be athletic.

Take Jeffree Star for inspiration (though, not all of us can afford Versace tracksuits as our everyday clothes we definitely can look for cheaper alternatives).
