Along with the dawn of every season, comes wit it, a list of must-have wardrobe items. Since winter is all about being warm and effortlessly stylish. We decided to clear your mind’s confusion (as to what the essentials are) and compile a list of everything you ever needed to know. Here are ten winter wardrobes essentials you need for all occasions.
A traditional statement coat
A winter coat is the equivalent of a little black dress. It’s that one piece of winter clothing that will always come in handy. Be it with skirts or jeans, even formal wear, it really is just a complimentary item that every lady needs. Importance a side, a statement coat will add a pop of colour to any neutral or all-black outfit.
Knee high boats – pretty women style!
Any one who has watched pretty women would be able to relate to me when I say that despite the context of Julia Roberts character, those boots were a trend smacker of note. Warm, sexy and chic – the perfect winter combination! Over the knee boots can be dressed down with jeans for a casual daytime look or glammed up with a skirt or mini dress in the eve.
Skinny jeans are ideal for both summer and winter. In Winter they offer a streamlined silhouette which allows you to layer multiple items on top for warmth without looking like a bulky Eskimo. Wear them with ballet flats and a leather jacket during the day or pointed toe heels and a silk drape top for a night out on the town.
Nothing says winter chic quite like a cashmere sweater. Those items of clothing we loathed as kids, has made it’s way back to our stores, and to our wardrobes too. This simple layering piece can be as easy to dress up as it is to dress down. This sweater looks great with a collared shirt protruding from underneath but goes with everything including midi skirts, printed trousers and leather pants.
Knitted Jumper Dress
One of the easiest way to show a little leg and still stay warm and snug at the same time is by wearing a knitted jumper dress. For added warmth, pair it with tights or pop your favourite winter coat on top, which can be removed once inside. Choose from a form fitting style or a relaxed version; you really can’t go wrong here.
A biker styled jacket adds a little spunk and playfulness to every winter wardrobe and adds instant edge and coolness to any outfit. Toss over your jeans and tee on the weekend or blouse and pants for the night, this jacket has the power to transform any winter outfit from drab to fab!
Although a hat might not spring to mind when thinking of winter must have’s, wool or felt fedora is a great way to keep warm without sacrificing on style as this accessory can make any outfit look more put together.
The wrap scarf is an effortless addition to most winter outfits and as time progresses, the bigger, the better! There are many ways to style this chic weather accessory, either thrown carelessly over your shoulder or wrapped around multiple times.
