Now that the holiday parties are all said and done, that’s no reason to believe our best winter looks are behind us. There are fashionable days ahead with these 5 winter must haves to ensure that you are looking your best until spring.
Burgundy – If you don’t know it by now, you need this hue. Although the name has gone from traditional burgundy to oxblood to merlot to whatever is coming next, it’s worth it to invest in a few pieces. One of the benefits of a rich tone like burgundy is it can make an inexpensive dress look very luxe.
Shimmer – Shimmer and shine aren’t only reserved just for special occasions. Bring the glam into the New Year with a gold metallic cocktail dress or a casual black shimmer dress that’s sure to start a conversation. Wear your shimmer looks with knits and neutrals during the off season to extend the life of those party dresses.
Monochromatic – Monochromatic doesn’t have to be boring. Step your color game up, or lack thereof with structured pieces that complement one another.
Velvet – Velvet was once only available around the holidays and expensive as all hell. The fashion gods have blessed us and velvet dresses, blazers and skirts are making their debut with a vengeance in never before seen colors and hues. Don’t sleep on this trend, I have a feeling once it’s gone, it’s gone, and if you play your cards right you’ll be the lucky lady with a few must-have pieces in her closet.
Knits – Knits are always in style, but statement knits are all the rage. Instead of opting for the status quo knit sweater, reach for a relaxed fit cold shoulder one instead, soft Angora mid-calf knit midi dress or oversized turtleneck sweater dress to switch it up a little.
These four looks are classy and timeless, how many of these do you have in your winter wardrobe? Let us know your favorites below.
The Aline dress style is hands down the most universal dress style. One of the most attractive qualities about this silhouette is that the cinched waist and flare skirt gives a waist to those that may not have one and distracts from the curves of those that may feel they have to many.

I love crop tops, but the length of time that you can show off those abs in a belly top is just to short. With all the hard work we invest in searching far and wide for the perfect crop top and high-waisted shorts we ought to be able to get a few more months of wear out of them beyond just summer. How ever you love to wear your short shirts, we are going to show you how to wear them a little bit longer.
1. Choose crop tops in Fall hues.
2. Pair your tops with high-waisted anything to eliminate the gap and to keep your midsection warm.
3. Wear your crop top as a vest. Layer your favorite short shirt over a basic long sleeve Oxford shirt to add dimension.
4. Do denim, tie it at the waist or wear your denim shirt as a light jacket.
Do you wear your crop tops through the fall or do you tuck them away at the first sign of chilly weather? Tag us in your crop top outfit looks on Instagram and give us a follow @ShopUnitedFront
