Every time updating the winter wardrobe turns into a kind of ritual: with the arrival of the first palpable cold weather, we rush to the store for a new woolen sweater, warm jacket, resistant boots, and other elements of winter outfit, dreaming of combining two main points - guaranteed warmth and stylish design. It is not an easy task, as we often have to choose between convenience and visual components in one way or another. However, this season the chances of success have increased markedly - the designers have used a variety of warm materials from velvet to leather and also brought back the irreplaceable puffer pieces that are indispensable in winter! Here are six of the biggest winter trends to know and shop winter 2020-2021.
Boho chic, rooted in hippie, gypsy, and ethnic motives, includes many items suitable for the cold season. Many fashion houses like Chloé, Celine, Etro, Isabel Marant, and others have taken advantage of this, creating bohemian sheepskin coats, layered dresses, and maxi skirts, styled slouch boots, and many other garments that are must-have of this winter.

Have a look at classic black dresses, wide-leg pants as well as tops and blazers that can be worn to any occasion, whether you're going to the nearest supermarket or Christmas dinner with your family.
