ALESSIAADORA'S 2020 WINTER STYLE GUIDE

ALESSIAADORA'S 2020 WINTER STYLE GUIDE

As the seasons change and a chill nips into the air, it’s the time of year when many of us start shopping for a winter weather wardrobe update for ourselves and our families.

Alessia and Mirabela are both passionate about winter fashion, and love to design stylish looks by pairing vibrantly colored coats and our signature tall riding boots. Whatever your family’s style, we hope that you find something on our 2020 and 2021 winter style guide to bring some joy and fun into your winter closet:

FLEECED TO MEET YOU

The fleece and Sherpa trend arrived on the scene last winter shows no signs of slowing down as we move into 2021. This warm, retro-chic, and kid-friendly fabric is popping up everywhere from coats to cardigans to boot linings. However, this family-favorite winter fabric does have some drawbacks. Fleece is made of synthetic polyester and rayon making most mass-produced fleece items highly unsustainable. Be on the lookout for eco-fleece, a sustainable fabric option made out of 100% recycled materials that is exactly like the “real” thing. Keep in mind that re-use of textiles is vital to making our planet a greener and less wasteful place to live- so why not get your thrift on? Search for funky retro fleeces at online thrift and consignment stores to add a touch of bohemian charm to your winter wardrobe.

 

HOME-OFFICE CHIC

The pandemic still has a lot of us working and learning from home, which has changed the game when it comes to workwear and classroom outfits. In 2021, winter trends will focus on versatile pieces that would look just as fabulous in the office as on a Zoom call.

For professional and comfortable work-at-home wear, you can never go wrong with a high-quality pullover. Couple a basic, quality knit sweater with a piece of statement jewelry to draw attention to your face during virtual meetings. As you work from home during the colder months, it also can’t hurt to invest in professional-yet-comfortable pieces that will keep you warm and comfy in your home office.

Look for insulated jeggings or wool pants that will give you range of movement and stretch with your body while still maintaining a professional appearance, and make sure you snag some thick lined socks and house-shoes to bring you the joy of coziness during your workday.

 

QUILTED COOL

As the cold winter draws closer, it’s time to start shopping for one of the pieces of winter clothing that Alessia loves the very most… warm and toasty winter coats!

Finding a stylish winter coat can be a delicate balancing act. You need something that’s warm…. but not too heavy. Something with lots of insulation… that doesn’t make you look like marshmallow. That’s why 2021 trend-setters are investing in quilted coats.

Style icons including Queen Elizabeth II herself have been spotted sporting this perennially classy winter option made with “quilted” layers of fabric stitched in squares over warm insulation within.

Quilted coats offer warm layers of lining while still cutting a sophisticated and flattering silhouette and come in a variety of styles, lengths, fabrics, and designs. The diamond or checkerboard effect of the quilted stitching creates an eye catching pattern without detracting from the winter coat’s versatile wearability, making it a great option for any member of the family.

As 2020 draws to a close, we hope you and your family are looking forward to lots of new adventures in 2021. With this winter style guide, we hope that you can find looks you’ll love as you embrace the new potential waiting for us all this January.
