I can’t wait for the warm weather so I can talk about flowy dresses, but in the mean time let’s talk about your winter wardrobe. Do you believe in having certain staples in your wardrobe for each season? I live in upstate NY where our winters are dreadful and long. You can easily loss your sense of fashion through these tough months. Partly, because you feel like you’re always wearing the same thing… boots and jeans. But these are the months you have to be most creative with your outfits. Don’t let the gloomy weather mess with your style. One way of getting creative with your outfits is knowing what winter wardrobe staples you need in order to expand your looks.
My 5 Winter wardrobe staples may appear typical, but without them my winter looks will be boring. These staples helps me expand my creativity to make sure I don’t spend these months wearing “boring” outfits. Because winter is just too long for that, right?
Its a no brainer you need a practical coat that will keep you super warm as the temperatures drop. But just because you need a practical coat doesn’t mean your has to be basic. Look for ones that are a pop of color that goes with most of your wardrobe to light up your winter, yet still keeps you warm and toasty!
As much as you need a practical coat, you also need one that is more dressy for special events. I lacked on my coats big time last winter, so I definitely had to step up my game. I am all about the romantic styles with a soft color and bold details like fur sleeves.
I love a great pair of over the knee boots. They instantly transform your look, having you look like a total babe. You can wear them with jeans, dresses, skirts. Shoot, even wearing them with leggings and still manage to look so put together. Plus, they keep your legs and feet warm. Double bonus!
A Good Pair of Skinny Jeans
My favorite item to buy (besides shoes) are jeans. I have a passion with jeans, because it took me a very long time to find a pair I truly love. Jeans aren’t as easy to shop for. But when you find the prefect pair, there will be no stopping you! Most of my winter looks consist of jeans. Having a pair I love is essential! Invest in a clean, classic skinny jean to incorporate in your winter wardrobe.
I live in sweaters all winter long. Its my favorite staple because you can definitely play around with a ton of different styles. I am into fuzzy sweaters this season, because on top of it being really warm, they are so stylish. Another sweater style I am loving this season is chenille. They feel like butter!!
What are some of your favorite winter wardrobe staples?
Happy Friday friends! What are your weekend plans? We are currently in transition of moving the store to a different location, which is so exciting. I am literally spending every night planning our move and finding some decor inspiration for our new location. Along with moving to a different location comes what we all dread the most, packing. Which is exactly how I will be spending my weekend. I’m tired just thinking about 😉
