5 Affordable Pieces That Will Update Your Winter Outfits + 25% Off Until 12/17!

Huge thanks to Kohl’s for sponsoring this post

One question I hear from many of you is how to stay up to date with style without wasting money on trends that won’t last. I want that for you, too, so today I’m sharing five affordable pieces that will update your winter outfits, and I’m partnering with Kohl’s to do it. These are modern styles that will stay around for a while, so you’ll get your money’s worth out of them. Not to mention these are incredibly affordable — AND they feel good. 🙌🏼

On that note, in general, Kohl’s carries SUCH good pieces at SUCH good prices! It’s one of my favorite places to shop for that reason. Plus, Kohl’s offers a wide variety of items, from activewear to casual wear to workwear to special occasion attire, and a variety of sizing. You can find straight, petite, plus, and some tall options there. Also, shopping at Kohl’s is really convenient thanks to their in-store and curbside pickup options.

And, right now Kohl’s is offering 25% OFF until 12/17 with code SHOP25! 🙌🏼

All right, into the goodies!

SIZING: I’m 5’6” and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.

1. Striped Tee
A striped tee is a must-have closet staple and is always in style! It’s just as easy to wear as a plain tee, but the striped print adds so much more visual interest. It makes your outfit look more stylish without you having to put in any additional effort!

You’ll get tons of use out of this long sleeve striped tee throughout the winter. You can wear it by itself or layer it under any jacket, cardigan, or vest. It’s only $9.59!! It comes in 17 colors and printsHERE. See similar plus size options HERE and similar petite size options HERE. I wear size M for a looser and more relaxed fit.

2. Flares
You all know that when it comes to denim cuts, the options are wide open right now. Pick your favorites! I personally love flares because they provide definition at the hips and moderate definition around the thighs keeping you from looking completely shapeless. Yet, the bottom portion at the knees and below has more volume, offering an updated silhouette.

I’ve talked many times about these flares, and I recommend them more and more the longer I have them! They are COMFORTABLE with soft denim that is stretchy, and they are lightweight and flexible. Best part? They’re only $27.74 right now!

I’ve worn these jeans with heeled booties (HERE) and with lifestyle sneakers. You can dress them up and down, as long as the length works for you in flats!

These jeans come in this medium to darker wash, a light wash, and black. See them all HERE. I wear size 6.

3. Wide Leg Pants
Wide leg pants are everywhere these days. It can be hard to find a pair that works for you and doesn’t widen you out even more, especially if you have curvier hips. If that’s you, the best thing to look for is a pair that comes in slightly right under your hips, instead of flaring out under the hips.

This particular pair of twill wide leg pants is VERY comfortable! I LOVE them! They are made of smooth non-denim material, and they are SOFT, super STRETCHY, and lightweight but sturdy and hold shape. So, sooo good. And they’re only $40.80  right now, HERE! I wear size 6. This is definitely one of those affordable pieces that will update your winter outfits instantly.

I’m showing the pants here with boots, but they also work really well with sneakers, as I’ll show below.

4. Updated Sweaters
If you’re in need of some new sweaters, Kohl’s has some that feel good. The one I’m wearing here is really soft and really cozy but lightweight. Super easy to wear. It’s also not that long, and because it’s on the thinner side, it works fairly well in a front tuck, like I’m doing here. It’s available in 3 colors, HERE. I wear size S.

Top: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size S)
Pants: Kohl’s (exact—wearing size 6)
Sneakers: Kohl’s (similar in White Black)

5. Corduroy Pants
Corduroy pants are classic and have been gaining more popularity over recent years. They’re now available in all cuts, like flares, wide legs, and straight legs like the ones I’m wearing here.

These corduroy pants are really affordable and so good, especially for the price! They are stretchy and come in 5 colors, HERE. I wear size 6.

The sweater I’m wearing here is another good option that is really, really affordable. Several PMT readers have gotten it in various colors and love it! It has a classic style and is super soft and lightweight. It’s only $14.99 right now and comes in TONS of colors! See them HERE. I wear size S.
