Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally victimized by freezing temps. Yeah, we’ve been there too. The chilliest months of the year are here, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Here are 7 VELA girl inspired winter looks to keep you feeling warm and looking cool.
1. Statement Hoodie
Hoodies have gone from typical stay-at-home loungewear to one of the most versatile pieces you can have from your wardrobe. Wear it on its own with some yoga pants, oversized with cargos, or layered under a blazer. Whether the vibe is cozy or chic, make a statement like @ayabarqawi in our Free Palestine hoodie. Every purchase gives a winter jacket to a child in Gaza through @healing.our.homeland, so you can stay warm and they can, too.
2. Black & Brown Combo
Whoever said black and brown can’t be worn together hasn’t seen @ayaspire in this stylish fit. From the pop of the white socks to the Rich Coffee hijab that complements her oversized scarf, this is a perfect example of the black and brown combo done right.
3. Fab Faux Fur
Faux fur is an easy way to add instant glam to any outfit. This denim and fur moment by @dressingthemasses is giving us Y2K nostalgia in the best way - not to mention the Light Olive and corset pairing is *chefs kiss*.
4. A Pop of Color
It’s easy to reach for blacks and grays in the winter, but don’t let that make you shy away from wearing brighter colors too. @mariamkudsi shows us how it’s done in the Ocean Blue scarf and our VELA Rhinestone Crewneck.
5. Cozy Footwear
Uggs have made a major comeback and, despite how controversial they are, can be both incredibly comfy and chic with proper styling. We love how effortlessly cool @ayaspire looks in her Uggs paired with an oversized trench, cozy crewneck, and our Spice Vanilla hijab wrapped under a baseball cap.
6. Denim Maxi
There are a lot of 90s/Y2K fashion trends that should really be left in the past, but we’re welcoming this one with open arms. The denim maxi is a hijabi’s dream - modest, stylish, and comfortable. Pair with boots and your favorite fleece lined tights or leggings for additional warmth and coverage.
7. Layered Letterman Jacket
Preppy style is in and varsity jackets are front and center. A letterman jacket is more than just a trend, however - it should tell a story. @manaar.j owns her story in the VELA Letterman Jacket. Layer over a neutral hoodie like she does for added warmth.
