Dressing for 60-degree weather can vary depending on where you’re from. People who live in cooler climates might find shorts in 60-degree weather perfectly fine and others might need to layer up to feel comfortable. Do you know what to wear in YOUR 60-degree weather? Take the inspiration here and apply it to your style and climate.
Here, we’re going to give you a number of great ideas for what to wear in 60-degree weather. Take a look and you should find some awesome style tips you can use for just about any occasion, for any climate:
1. Get Used To Layering Pieces Up
Start by getting used to layering up certain pieces, especially sweaters. When shopping for clothes, if you know you’re going to be able to layer something up, you have a good reason to buy it.
You can layer shirts with cute collars under sweaters, and even roll necks in a contrasting color. If you can’t layer a piece, you should at least be able to wear it with multiple other pieces in your wardrobe before you allow yourself to buy it!
Layering is a skill, but it’s something anybody can get used to if you practice. Being able to wear your wardrobe multiple ways is so satisfying, too!
You’ll save money, and you’ll be doing your bit for the planet. All kinds of wins!
2. Throw On A Faux Fur Vest
A faux fur vest can be surprisingly toasty and tends to look good with just about anything. Wear it over a long-sleeved top or even a sweater.
You can go casual with jeans, or wear it over a dress or long skirt. There’s no end to the number of ways you can wear something like this.
3. Add A Cute Hat
Adding a cute hat to a simple outfit is the perfect accessory. A wool floppy-style hat can look very stylish and unique, while a baker cap adds a little edge.
If you want to mix up your outfits and keep each one looking different, this is the way to do it. Berets and fur bucket hats are especially stylish this year!
4. Wear Over the Knee Boots
Over the knee boots will help to keep your legs warm and look great whether with a skirt, dress, or jeans.
They can help you to look a little more put together, and keep your legs as warm as possible. It’s a great way to spice up your outfit.
5. Throw On A Stylish Scarf
A blanket scarf is bound to keep you warm enough and can be worn in a variety of ways depending on how you prefer to wear them. A scarf can add color, pattern, and texture to an outfit.
You could even wear a silk neck scarf tied around your neck for a chic and stylish addition to any outfit. If you get too warm or uncomfortable, you could always take it off and tie it on your bag.
6. Stay Cosy In A Stylish Sweater Dress
Sweater dresses are super cozy yet stylish. You can wear them with ankle boots or even knee-length boots if you want to be sure you stay warm no matter what.
It’s then up to you: accessorize with a leather jacket, a denim jacket, or even a flannel shirt if it’s fairly cool out. It’s hard to grow tired of such a staple item, especially since you can wear it in many ways.
7. Brighten Things Up With A Colorful Knit
A colorful knit is a must in any wardrobe. You can easily throw on a colorful knit with most outfits.
If you’re looking for a way to add texture, layers, and a splash of color, this is the perfect way to do it. Try selecting a knit you can layer pieces underneath for ultimate impact. To own this look, it’s better to go out with colors than ever before.
8. Try Mixing Prints
Mixing prints won’t necessarily make you any warmer or cooler, but learning how to do this could help you to create much nicer looking outfits that look professional, yet stylish. Patterns can add some texture to a look and will stop you from looking boring.
Mixing prints can seem tough and even confusing at first, but it’s quite easy when you get the hang of it. It’s usually better to use an odd number of prints.
Three is the ideal number to start. You then incorporate one around 60%, another around 30%, and another around 10%. Doing it equally won’t look as good.
Monochrome patterns work especially well with one another and are quite easy to start with. You can also use different versions of the same pattern and see how that works.
Ultimately, you have to wear patterns that look good to you.
9. Experiment With Textures
As well as prints, you can also experiment with textures. Using a variety of textures in your outfits will stop your outfit from falling flat, and ultimately, complete the look.
This is especially important if you’re wearing an outfit of similar colors or in neutral colors. Wear faux leather, denim, suede, wool, and other materials together for lots of nice texture and interest.
It’ll make a huge difference!
10. Invest In a Chunky Knit Cardigan
A chunky knit cardigan will keep you nice and warm, and long cardigans are particularly popular these days.
Long cardigans are perfect to throw on with a nice pair of jeans and a plain tank top for a stylish but minimalistic look that you could wear out for brunch or even shopping. It’s the perfect accessory to make any simple outfit more stylish than it really is.
11. Go Retro With a Colorful Windbreaker Jacket
Want to add a little coolness and color into your wardrobe? You could always make like Hailey Bieber and invest in a retro colorful windbreaker jacket.
This will really help you to channel that 80s/90s vibe, and you’ll get extra points if you buy a true retro version! Buying vintage items is better for the planet and you’ll end up with something that nobody else has.
12. A Maxi Dress and Leather Jacket
A maxi dress can be a great way to stay warm when out for drinks or lunch, and throwing a leather jacket on top will finish it off nicely. If you need some extra layers, a sweater over the top could work just as well too.
Mixing different styles might seem foreign to you at first, but this is a great way to define your own style and have fun with all of your clothes, year-round.
13. Tuck a Sweater into a Midi Skirt
Midi skirts are another awesome addition to any wardrobe, and tucking a sweater into one always looks chic. Consider doing the ‘half-tuck’, which is a very French way of doing things (automatically giving you more style points).
An oversized sweater and a more fitting skirt could work very well, as well as a looser skirt and a tighter knit sweater. It’s all about creating the silhouette you want with the clothes you choose – if you’re brave, wearing loose clothing all over can look really edgy and cool, but you need to be smart to avoid looking like you’re wearing a sack!
14. Wear A Classic Chic Trench Coat
The trench coat will never go out of style. Investing in a classic beige or black trench coat could be the perfect way for you to stay stylish and warm during the cooler months.
Not quite a big furry jacket and no quite a loose jacket, you’ll love having this in-between-weather coat in your wardrobe.
15. Rock The All-Black Outfit
All-black outfits always look effortlessly cool. You just can’t help but look cool when you wear all black.
Go for a leather jacket and black jeans and you’ll instantly feel like a bad-ass vampire or even Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
However, be sure to use the texture rule that we discussed earlier. It’s too easy for an all-black outfit to look flat if you don’t wear different textures.
16. Cut A Refined Silhouette In A Long-Sleeved Dress And Boots
A long-sleeved dress and boots will keep you warm and show off your silhouette.
This sort of outfit not only looks great, but is ridiculously comfortable! Style AND comfort, a win-win.
17. Have Fun in Jeans and A Nice Top
Jeans and a nice top is always a winning outfit combination. Whether you’re going shopping, out for cocktails, or simply to the movies with a loved one, this outfit is a winner!
A pair of nice fitting jeans is a must, and you can then choose a cute but quirky top if you want to keep things looking funky. Off the shoulder, numbers help you to bare a little skin, while something frilly could give your look a flirty edge.
Don’t be afraid to get creative with this outfit, have fun!
