Outfits to wear in December: The nights are getting longer, the weather colder, and fashion better. December is the best time of the year for a comfortable yet chic fashion statement. It is finally the sweater weather. The weather when our Instagram feeds gets better with a picture of hot coffee, a good book and a pair of fluffy gloves holding them.
With December comes the excitement of changing your wardrobe, replacing 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. Life is good in December. We have picked a few outfits for you take inspiration from this December. 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).
