8 Ways to Remix Your Winter Wardrobe

It may still be blisteringly cold out, but with the Pre-Fall 2011 collections just wrapped, no one in the fashion industry has this season’s winter collections in mind. Staying on-trend when all you want to do is cozy up by a fire is no easy feat, and while it may not be appropriate to bust out the all-white looks and oversized floral print dresses just yet, no one says you can't make those trends work in some capacity. By remixing what we already own, and doing some wise shopping, we can all avoid the faux pas of showing up to the Fall/Winter 2011 shows in Fall/Winter 2010 trends.

1. Pack on the layers by opting for a Pre-Fall 2011 favorite, the cape (think Yves Saint Laurent), over your top and under your coat.

2. When wearing a white piece, opt for one made out of a heavy fabric and, if possible, go for a creamy off-white shade.

3. Play up the nautical trend of the Pre-Fall season (seen at Tory Burch and Derek Lam) with some accessories. Striped scarves, hats, gloves, and mittens are all perfect options. Remember, you don’t have to limit yourself to the classic Breton stripes – pops of color are a great way to fight the winter doldrums!
