The tricky thing about cold weather is that not only do you want to look cute and stylish, but you also want to feel cozy and warm. Dressing during late fall and through winter is all about nailing the art of looking great while feeling cozy.
If you’re looking for cute ideas on what to wear in 50-degree weather, then let me guide you through 33 outfits you can easily recreate using must-have basics to make this winter as stylish and warm as possible.
How to dress for 50-degree weather
Getting ready for winter means one thing: having your basics on point. You can’t survive low temperatures without having the right clothes.
If you need to update your winter’s basics, then these are some cute and trendy styles to look after:
1. Plaid coat
Plaids are classic, so worrying about investing in a plaid piece that’s trendy right now is of no use. You can wear plaid anything all your life!
However, let’s make the most of the plaid trend and include it in our winter’s basics.
The best thing about a plaid coat is that it can easily dress up any type of outfit. You can wear it for a chic workwear look or for an elevated casual weekend look.
Plaid coats have been approved by the Royals as well:
Whether it’s an oversized or mini plaid, this trendy yet classic pattern will make you look stylish throughout winter. And, if you take good care of it, it can last you a lifetime.
That’s why it’s always a good idea to splurge on coats or outerwear: a good purchase means a long-lasting product (or at least most of the time).
2. Faux-fur layers
Faux-fur (or actual fur) layers will be your go-to clothes whenever you feel like stepping up your winter style.
These are great additions to your winter wardrobe and can be easily worn right before it gets really cold. A 50-degree weather is perfect for rocking a faux-fur jacket.
If you love a cool and trendy style, then opt for either oversized or cropped jackets:
If you’re more into preppy or classic styles, then a faux-fur vest will be a great idea:
For a dramatic look, bold patterns or colors will definitely do the trick. This faux-fur coats are perfect for anyone who loves wearing show-stopper outfits.
3. Oversized jackets
These past two years have been characterized by oversized fashion. From prints to actual pieces, there’s no way you can escape this cool trend.
Step into the oversized-anything world with your winter basics. An oversized jacket is a perfect way of guaranteeing a cool and trendy style throughout these cold months.
Clothes for 50-degree weather shouldn’t be over-the-top warm. Jackets are a great way of preparing for colder weather, so what better way to do so than with an oversized menswear-inspired jacket.

4. Wool pants
Reconsider your casual outfits by adding some dressier pieces to elevate your every-day wear.
Wool pants are perfect for those days when the temperature drops and all you can think about is wearing a comfortable outfit. They’re great bottoms because not only will they keep you warm and cozy, but will also dress up any type of top.
If you want to look trendy and stylish, a pair of straight or wide leg wool pants are a must. Pair them with booties or sneakers, and add your favorite jacket for some extra warmth.
It’s not necessary to mention how wool pants are classic workwear staples, so if your office’s dress code is formal, remember that you can never go wrong with a pair of wool pants.
Opt for textures, patterns or bold colors to take your business style to the next level.
5. Corduroy anything
Just like wool, corduroy is another must-have fabric for this winter. You can include it any way you want: from skirts to flare pants and jackets.
What’s important is that you add some texture to your everyday outfits with a cute corduroy garment.
If you want to elevate your workwear style, opt for corduroy suits. Nothing can beat a bold suit, and corduroy will help you look unique and chic.
If you love vintage-inspired clothing, then a pair of flare corduroy pants will help you pull off a cool and modern vintage outfit. Finish your look with a pair of leather pointy booties for an extra edgy feel.
Take your corduroy style to the next level with a jumpsuit. This is the perfect piece for a showstopper outfit.
Wear a corduroy jumpsuit on those days when you feel like being the center of attention.
6. Unique sweaters
One of the all-time winter classic pieces are sweaters, that’s for sure. You can’t survive cold weather months without them.
But if you want to spice up your winter style, make the most of 50 degree days with cool and unique sweaters.
These can be bold colors, cool prints or unique styles that will make you look like the fashion lover that you are.
If you’re obsessed with animal prints, then make sure to include them in your sweaters as well. Pair them with bold color pants to elevate your animal print style.
Pullover sweaters with unique motifs, such as a jumping cat, is a great way of spicing up your winter looks. What I love about bold sweaters is that people will actually come over to ask you “where did you get that” and, honestly, nothing can flatter a fashionista more than this question.
7. Blanket scarves
One universal truth about winter fashion is that it’s not all about looking stylish and cute, but also about looking (and feeling) cozy and comfy.
Blanket scarves are the definition of the perfect winter accessory because it does exactly that: elevates your outfit while keeping you warm and cozy. Make sure to include at least one blanket scarf in your winter must-haves.
There are many ways in which you can style your blanket scarf, which is why this accessory is included on this list: you can wear with all your outfits and style it in multiple ways to make it look like it’s a different scarf.
In other words, it’s versatile and cute.
You can opt for chunky or lightweight blanket scarves. It will all depend on how easily cold you get. Either way, any type will do the trick.
8. Over-the-knee boots
One of the trendiest shoe styles for fall and winter is over-the-knee boots. You simply can’t fail with these.
Whether you need to wear a casual outfit for class, or a business casual outfit for a meeting, this type of boots will help you look expensive and chic.
Over-the-knee boots look great with knit dresses. For a classy and chic outfit, try pairing similar colors together.
A monochromatic outfit never fails in making you look like a fashion pro:
These boots are also perfect for business casual outfits. A pair of skinny jeans teamed with a tucked-in jumper is the perfect combo for over-the-knee boots.
If you want to look chicer, low heels are always going to be better than flat boots.
9. Fedora hat
Another must-have accessory for 50-degree weather outfits that will help you survive winter months are fedora hats. These are always in style, so think of them as investing in a long-lasting accessory.
Fedora hats are perfect for adding that finishing touch to your cold-weather looks. Wear yours whenever you feel like your outfit needs an extra “something”
This accessory will help you transform a so-and-so outfit into a cool and stylish one in the easiest way possible.
If you need any other reason as to why fedora hats need to be included in your shipping list, let me tell you hats (any type) are great accessories for:
– Rebel hair: keep yours close on those days when you’re having a bad hair day.
– Giving you a mysterious and sophisticated look. Add a pair of sunglasses if you want to add an extra dose of chicness.
