Gone are the warm fall afternoons, where you could get away with wearing just a leather jacket and scarf outdoors. Despite winter arguably being the least favorable of the seasons, it does provide us with more than enough reasons to get decked out in some of our coziest items. So, keep on reading for the 5 wardrobe essentials your closet needs this winter so you’ll keep warm while remaining fashionable.
- Blanket Scarf or Shawl
Winter is officially in full swing and it’s a great time to take advantage of the major style opportunity at hand with the season’s biggest trend. When it’s this cold outside, wearing a giant blanket in public sounds a great idea. A blanket scarf is an oversized scarf that is in the shape of a square that can keep you warm at the same time chic. Like fashion blogger Blair Eadie, think of a printed blanket scarf that can add some flair to your cozy outfit. In the milder colds, go for knit shawl or even cashmere ones that you can wrap around your neck.
- Uggs or Over-the-Knee Boots
Uggs are boots that very comfortable to wear in winters, even if you do not like wearing boots you can wear them as they keep the moisture out. Though uggs are a fall and winter shoe, they are not snow boots since they become easily ruined when wet and their color changes. If you find it clunky for you, resort to chic winter boots. Keep your feet dry and your thighs warm with a pair of attention-grabbing over-the-knee boots this winter. Like fashion blogger Masha Sedgwick, make your shorter dresses or shorts appropriate in the colder months by wearing them with over the knee boots.
- Chunky Sweater
Aside from their ability to make you feel my coziest, sweaters are a staple in any wardrobe, especially during the fall and winter. Dress it up or down, a great chunky sweater is accessible to everyone. Like fashion blogger Doina Ciobanu, wear it with a suede miniskirt and a pair f over the knee boots making it look a bit sexy while keeping you warm.
