Party Wear: Seems we’ve all been at home in our comfies for long enough. We are noticing a trend to get dressed up again! We have lots of bling and party wear, in neutrals (like that perfect ‘little black dress’) but also stunning jewel tones.

Cozy Comfortable Loungewear: The first thing we all want to do now when we get home from work is get out of our office clothes or work clothes and get into some comfortable, presentable loungewear for the evening. As luck will have it cozy loungewear for after hours is staying strong!

With so many great fashion trends to choose from, you’re sure to stay stylish and comfortable all season long!

How to stay warm and stylish during Canada's cold winters

Canada is known for its cold winters, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. There are plenty of ways to stay fashionable during the frosty months.

We are all about layers when it comes to ladies’ wear and women’s fashion here in Goderich, Ontario, Canada.

Start with a good base layer. Long johns or leggings made from wool or another insulating material will help to keep your body heat in, without adding bulk.

Next, add a sweater or cardigan. If you’re looking for something extra cozy, try a turtleneck or a scarf.

And don’t forget the details! A knit hat, a pair of gloves, and a pair of boots will help to keep you warm from head to toe.

With a little bit of planning, you can be chic all season long.

The Best Materials and Colours to Wear from This Winter Palette

Winter Color Palette

It’s the perfect time to experiment with richer, jewel tones in your winter colour palette.

This season’s colour palette is all about deep plums, emerald greens, and royal blues or dark blue. Yes! Yes! Green is back in a big way!

Jewel tones are the perfect way to add a pop of colour to your wardrobe this season.

Whether you have dark hair, light grey or white hair, baby blue eyes or dark brown eyes, jewel tones look great on everyone for a splash of colour in the deep winter.

And don’t be afraid to mix and match different jewel tones together. Pair a plum sweater with a bright green, emerald green scarf, or a royal blue coat with a plum hat.

It’s the perfect time to have fun with colour.

Dark Brown to Match Your Flowing Dark Brown Hair

Not to worry, dark brown isn’t going anywhere. You can still match your favourite dark brown jacket to match your flowing dark brown hair.

And, you don’t have to ditch your black-and-white wardrobe, simply add some new jewel tones to your life.

Make 2023 a sparkling, jewel tone year.

Accessories that will complete your winter look

It is the perfect time to experiment with accessories.

With the holidays just around the corner, there are plenty of opportunities to spruce up your outfit with a few festive touches. And even if you’re not attending any parties, you can still use accessories to add a little bit of personality to your everyday look.

Here are a few women’s winter accessories that will help you stay stylish all season long.

A cozy scarf is a must-have for any wardrobe. It can be worn in a variety of ways, from loosely draped around the neck to snugly wrapped up like a scarf-cowl hybrid. This versatile piece will keep you heated on even the coldest days.

Another essential winter accessory is a pair of gloves. While practical considerations like warmth and dexterity are important, don’t be afraid to have some fun with your gloves by choosing a pair that features an interesting texture or pattern. Faux fur or cable-knit gloves are both trendy and functional options.

Finally, don’t forget about footwear. Winter boots are not only functional, but they can also be quite stylish. Whether you opt for knee-high boots or ankle boots, make sure they’re made from water-resistant materials like leather or suede to keep your feet dry in wet weather.

With these essential winter accessories, you’ll be able to create endless looks that will keep you feeling comfortable and stylish all season long.

Tips on how to dress with some cute winter outfits for different occasions during the winter season


Christmas party season is upon us and that can only mean one thing: time to find the perfect Christmas party dress!

Whether you’re attending an office Christmas party, a family get-together or a night out with friends, here are some tips about winter dresses so you are prepared for the occasion.


For an office Christmas party, it’s important to remember that you’re representing your company. Stick to classic Christmas colours like red, green and gold, and avoid anything too revealing. A festive Christmas jumper or a sparkly Christmas dress is always a good option.



If you’re attending a family Christmas party, go for something comfortable that you can relax in. You’ll likely be spending a lot of time sitting down, so choose an outfit that won’t make you feel too hot or uncomfortable. A festive jumper with jeans or a cosy Christmas dress is always a good option.



Finally, if you’re going out with friends for a Christmas night out, have some fun with your outfit! Go for something sparkly and festive, and don’t be afraid to experiment with different colours and styles. sequin dresses are always a good choice for a Christmas night out. Whatever you wear, just make sure you’re comfortable and having fun!

A well-dressed woman is always prepared for any occasion.

But what about those moments when you just want to relax at home and stay out of the cold weather?

For those times, loungewear is a must. But with so many options on the market, it can be hard to know where to start.

Canadian fashion expert Erica Wark has a few words of wisdom when it comes to finding the perfect loungewear set.

“It’s all about comfort,” she says. “But that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Look for loungewear sets that are made from soft, breathable fabrics and come in flattering cuts.” And don’t forget to accessorize! “A great pair of socks or slippers can take your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary.”

We agree! Loungewear is a great way to relax and feel comfortable without sacrificing your sense of style.


However, finding the perfect loungewear can be a challenge.

To help you find the best loungewear for your needs, here are a few words of wisdom from our in-house style expert at Schaefer’s Ladies Wear, in Goderich, Ontario:

1. When it comes to loungewear, comfort is key. Look for fabrics that are soft and gentle on your skin, and avoid anything that feels constricting or uncomfortable.

2. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles and silhouettes. You may be surprised at how good you look in a relaxed pair of joggers or a flowing robe.

3. Make sure you have a few key loungewear staples in your wardrobes, such as a comfy pair of sweatpants or leggings, a soft Hoodie or sweatshirt, and a cozy blanket or scarf.

With these essentials on hand, you’ll always be prepared to ditch your office clothes and get lounging in style after work.
