If you injected your closet with trendy oxblood and totally of-the-moment peplums back in September, it's time to shake up your closet again. Winter fashion doesn't just mean bundling up under a thousand layers of sweaters and scarves – it's definitely possible to continue dressing like your fabulous self even through the coldest months of the year. Here's how to rock six new trends from now into 2013.


Top, $69, Urban Outfitters. Jeans, $78, Levi's. Loafers, $79, DV by Dolce Vita.  Earrings, $48, Kate Spade.

During the seventeenth century, baroque art became wildly popular in Western Europe. The ornate, intricate designs appeared in sculpture, painting, and architecture – and now, the style has been revived for winter fashion. Look for pieces with flowery embroidery, like the peplum top above, luxe brocades and jacquards, or kaleidoscopic prints. This outfit would be perfect for class or a casual night out.


Sweater, $95, J. Crew. Skinny velvet pants, $69.95, Gap. Loafers, $49.90, Zara. Bag, $80, Topshop. Nail polish, $8, Essie.

Velvet is popping up everywhere, from skinny jeans to party dresses. Colored velvet adds a sumptuous twist to colored denim – you look like you're front row at Fashion Week, but you feel like you're in your pajamas. When paired with a cozy sweater, you're ready to hit the library in style.


Jacket, $96, Topshop. Dress, $38.70, ASOS. Tights, $10, HUE. Boots, $59.94, DSW. Headband, $15, Pier 1.

The military trend has been going strong for years now, but this winter brings a new twist: camo print. Jackets and skinny jeans are the two most widespread versions of this trend, but we've also seen it popping up on tees and accessories, too. Here, we balanced the toughness of the jacket with a flirty dress and a sparkly headband.
