Wear Quilted Fabrics

Quilted jackets and coats are a fantastic way to wear this fabric. Leather jackets always look great with jeans, but pair them with a long skirt and boots and you have a romantic look with an edge. Fleece jackets and puffers are a more casual option, while a fur collared coat is a dressier choice. When the temperature drops significantly, a parka is a wise choice. The little sewn details does more than add style, but keeps you extra warm.

If you are still insistent on wearing skirts, even in the coldest of days, a quilted skirt will keep you insulated. Make sure to pair it over a thick pair of leggings to keep you from freezing. Even the thickest of skirts will not keep you warm if your legs are bare. Since the skirt is full, make sure the top you choose is a little more streamlined and formfitting.

Puffy boots are a favorite at ski resorts. Winter makes it difficult to put form over function, but the these types of boots seem to keep things in balance. They are perfect for the classic “snow bunny” look. Wear these over a pair of jeans, a pretty sweater and warm cloche hat.

Vests were made for layering, and as we know, layers are our best friends in winter. A vest can keep you warm all season. Start with jeans and a patterned sweater, add some warm boots and a slouchy beanie. Finish with a bright colored vest for a vibrant yet subtle sporty look. A fur collar adds elegance, but this is completely optional.

Quilted handbags are always in style. Leather, when sewn in this way, is extremely fashionable and classy. Though they may look heavy, they are actually lightweight. Try a tote for shopping or errands. A clutch wrapped in this fabric is especially cute and perfect for casual outings. Or try a chic handbag or satchel for a dressier look.
