8 Winter Trends That You'll Truly Want to Wear

The overarching conundrum in fashion right now is whether to embrace all things comfort minded or to lean in to the glamour left in life and dress to the nines even if only you (or no more than 9 people you’re related to) are there to see it. The possibility of unperceived existence aside, we subscribe to a theory that falls somewhere in between. You can look polished—or cool, or chic, or whatever word describes your best inner being—without giving up an ounce of ease. Should that mean donning your tennis whites all winter long, investing in cozy coats, or indulging in #cottagecore, nap dresses, or lingerie all day, there’s a cold-weather trend for you.

To prove it, BAZAAR.com took model and musician Julia Cumming on location to Troutbeck, a dream getaway in Amenia, New York to explore some forest bathing and stream hiking—and style her in the most standout—and wearable—looks of the season.

The origin story of now Insta-famous #cottagecore can be found in the romanticisation of Western agriculture and getting back to the essence of feminine prairie life. In other words, leave restrictive denim behind in favour of the prettiest dress you can find for frolicking through the nearest stream.

Winter is about nesting, and nothing makes you feel more tucked in at home than a super-cozy knit. Layer on two or three, and add some cashmere socks while you’re at it too.

Plaid About It

Maybe we’re collectively finding solace in traditional American staples like plaid, but that doesn’t mean designers are focusing them through a traditional lens. Take your tartans on dresses with leathers or layered on Japanese coats—the rules no longer apply.

Ride or Die

One silver lining of a tumultuous eight months is how many people returned to the stables to reacquaint themselves with some trots and gallops. But another silver lining is that we can all embrace the tailored look of a smart equestrian ensemble—no horses required.
