If you scroll through Instagram enough, you're bound to notice more than a few common themes. The printed Prada bag everyone and their mother is snapping photos in? Yep, it's basically gone viral. How about the colorful knit scarves that seem to come back around every single winter?

Meet the winter Instagram fashion trends I keep seeing all over my feed.

An endless slew of influencers, editors, buyers, and miscellaneous fashion people all agree on the list below. Don't just take my word for it, though—the proof is all over the 'gram. Keep reading to see all 10 fashion picks and shop them yourself. I've seeded out the best options at many price points.

While there are plenty of winter trends that are made for the holiday season, there's always room for a little comfort. Thanks to this trend, you can get away with wearing a lot of these sets while going out, too.

Although this trend comes around every winter, it's just as exciting every time it does. It's like a portable blanket, so add one to your cart and bundle up.

3. Uggs

Listen, I know Uggs have never really gotten out of style, but recently, I have seen the go-to winter brand being worn in a more styled manner than with loungewear like it usually is.

4. Shearling Bags

The cozier you want to be in the winter, the cozier the accessories start to get. Telfar's collaboration with Ugg in 2020 was just the beginning. This year, a plethora of brands have added shearling styles to their collections.

We like to call this outerwear style "cloud coats." They're thinner than a puffer, so the style is perfect for optimal layering and can easily be dressed up.

6. Cutout Knits

Cutout dresses were the theme of the summer, so why not bring the style into winter knits?

7. Puffer Vests

I'm usually a puffer-jacket person, but with the weather going up and down, it makes sense to have a vest on deck. Plus, they're much more versatile when it comes to styling.

9. Balaclavas

This may not be everyone's taste, but it's starting to grow on me. It looks especially great when styled with a coordinating sweater and an oversize coat. Either way, it's a cozy accessory that's everywhere this winter.

10. Crystals

Holiday season is coming, so it's time to bring on the drama. Sparkle, glitter, and crystals—it's their time to shine.
