2018-19 Winter Trends for Girls’ Fashion & Clothes 

Winter Prints, Colors, Textures, and Patterns

Dull days do not mean you have to say goodbye to cute outfits for your girl. This winter, bright colors are very much on-trend, so don’t be afraid to put on that bright pink or green sweater and rock it. And extra points if you combine it with your favorite denim. We’re seeing a lot of pinks, teals, and reds. But to balance out all that color, we’re also seeing lots of natural tones.  

Plaid is also on trend this winter, whether it’s a shirt, a dress, pants, or a jacket. It might be classic, but it can also be super edgy when you wear it just right. Speaking of edgy, we’re also seeing lots of animal prints popping up everywhere. 

We’ve got some interesting textures on our radar at the moment, too. It’s all about faux fur, metallic, and ALL that sparkle! That’s right - the glittery, sparkly trend that’s been hanging around forever is officially here to stay. (YESSS!) 

Winter Tops and Shirts

This winter, it’s all about choosing tops that make a statement about who you are! So don’t be afraid to let your girl’s personality shine through with colors, patterns, textures, and prints that are totally her.  

How to Wear Dresses in Winter

Knit dresses are a girl’s best friend in winter. Cozy, warm, and not too bulky, they’re perfect for layering up! You can layer most of the dresses in your wardrobe to wear them year-round with a few simple tricks. Add a long-sleeve shirt underneath and wear your dress like a pinafore (a classically cute outfit for girls right now). Add leggings, tights, or skinny jeans underneath to keep your legs warm. Then add your girl’s warmest jacket or cardigan on top. The best part is, if she gets too hot, she can always peel back a layer! 

Pants and Skirts for Winter

Your girl can wear any skirt she likes through winter by adding a pair of skinny pants or leggings. Done! Or if she wants to rock a skirt without an extra layer underneath, go with a nice, heavy ankle-length midi skirt.   

You’ll also want to swap her usual shorts for long pants. But you don’t have to go with the typical black, chino, or denim pants… this season it’s all about working those beautiful jewel tones into your girl’s outfit. Don’t be afraid of color and make a statement with pants!

Outerwear For Every Occasion 

If you’ve been waiting for the perfect excuse to get your girl a fun faux fur coat, here it is: they’re totally in right now. Even better: oversized cardigans and cozy-warm knits your girl will never want to take off. Ever. We’re also seeing a trend toward mixing colors and textures on jackets – think the leather look plus fluffy sleeves! And if your girl needs to dress up for a special event or occasion, a biker jacket is the perfect way to take her outfit from everyday to WOW! 

Winter Accessories 

Dainty little bags are in, and we’re loving them! Less like a bag, and more like a purse attached to a cross-body strap, these bags are perfect for holding just a few essentials, like some coins, snacks, or lip balm.  

Now let’s talk winter shoes. This winter, it’s all about the sneaker bootsSparkly, animal print, faux fur, anything goes! Wear them with skinny jeans, skirts, and dresses so your girl can keep her feet warm and stylish no matter what the weather’s like outside.  

Finally, have you REALLY got your girl’s winter wardrobe sorted without getting some sort of winter hat? Of course not! Grab a cute hat with pom-pom to top off a super cute outfit for your girl and keep her head and ears fashionably warm.
