The cold weather is starting to arrive, which means that it’s time to say goodbye to summer clothes for another year. If the thought of packing away your swimwear and shorts is making you long for lazy days at the beach and warm evenings sipping cocktails, it’s time to focus on curating your winter wardrobe so that you love it just as much as your spring/summer one.
The winter can sometimes feel like the least stylish season, as being warm may be more of a priority than looking great. However, it is possible to stay looking cute while being cosy at the same time. Spending a little time pulling together your winter closet is a great way to get the new season off to a stylish start. Getting dressed over the coldest time of year becomes a whole lot easier when you have a wardrobe containing all your winter must-haves. Ready to get started, but need a little inspo? Check out these winter wardrobe must-haves for effortlessly stylish but warm fashion this winter:
Layer it Up
When it comes to dressing for winter, layers are your wardrobe heroes. Wearing layers is an excellent way to keep warm, as you can add or take away garments as needed. Layers also add extra interest to your outfit by allowing you to introduce a mix of colours and textures. Choosing good quality layers, such as knitwear and vest tops, will ensure that your layered look is always a winner.
Best Foot Forward
Winter footwear choices can seem a little bland at times. While sensible shoes may be the most practical footwear choice, they are not the most exciting. No one wants cold feet and walking through the snow in sliders is definitely a no-no. This means that it’s time to hunt for the perfect boots to help you make it through the winter with feet that are warm, dry, and look great too.
To ensure that you already for every occasion, it is a great idea to have two pairs of boots, one pair of heels for dressing up, and a second pair of flat boots for running errands.
Wrap up Warm
One wardrobe item that will get a lot of wear over the coming months is your coat. The right coat can make every outfit look stylish, so choosing the right one is essential. It is best to make sure that your coat will work with the colours and styles of clothes that you have in your winter wardrobe, so you may want to avoid a bold print.
When you are coat shopping, it is wise to think about the silhouette that you want to achieve from it. A fitted coat will make your outfit look stylish, but for a more casual look, you may want to choose a jacket that you can dress down.
Don’t forget to add your accessories to match your coat; choose a selection of hats, scarves, and gloves to keep you cosy without compromising on style.
