Wardrobe essentials every woman needs this winter

We are into the thick of winter, and if there’s one season you need to prep your wardrobe for, this is it. Sure, you’ll need a warm puffer jacket and a cosy sweater, but don’t be all about business, you also need a few chic staples that you can wear on nights out and to dinner dates.

Here are some winter wardrobe essentials you should consider getting this year:

Skinny jeans

Skinnies are perfect for winter as they allow you to layer multiple items on top for warmth. Pair them with boots and a leather jacket for a daytime look or heeled boots for a night out on the town.

Knitwear

There’s nothing quite as comfortable and says off-duty chic like knitwear. This staple can be as easy to dress up as it is to dress down. It also looks great with a pair of skinny jeans and leggings, and goes with everything.

Trench coat

A trench coat is such a classic winter piece that it doesn’t even need justification to be on this list. If you don’t have one then it’s time to get one for yourself. You can even opt for a statement coat that will add a pop of colour to your neutral or plain outfit. It can be worn with everything from dresses and skirts to pants and jeans.

Sock boots

There are different types of boots out there but few are as universally flattering as the  sock boot. We’ve seen it on the catwalks and A-listers seem to be loving it. Sock boots are the kind of trend that’ll fit into your shoe closet like a glove.

The sock boot is an essential wardrobe staple. It slips under skinnies, looks good with skirts, and even counterbalances dresses. You can’t go wrong with a pair of sock boots – from basic to glittered and metallic ones.

Over-the-knees boots

These are the perfect ladies shoes for winter. Over-the-knee boots can be dressed down with stockings and a jumper for a casual daytime look.

Blanket scarf

The blanket scarf is a stylish and effortless addition to any winter outfit. There are many ways to style this cold weather accessory, either thrown carelessly over your shoulder or wrapped around multiple times.

Turtleneck top

A turtleneck top will ensure that your neck is warm all winter long, it looks good with anything and can be dressed up and down. Just look at Apple’s founder Steve Jobs, who rocked it all of the time.

Leather jacket

A leather jacket is needed for every winter wardrobe and adds an instant edge to any outfit. Pair it with jeans and a tee on the weekend and if you’re going out, wear it with a blouse and pants. It really has the power to transform any winter outfit from drab to fab!

Fur faux coat

This is a classic! Investing in a fur faux coat will ensure that you stay warm and on-trend long after winter is over. It usually comes in neutral colours like black, cream, or camel and they go with almost everything.

Winter tights

The good ol’ tights are not only inexpensive but they are warm. In fact, they go with just about everything. Tights have more than earned their place on this year’s list of winter fashion must-haves. They also help to streamline an outfit and cut down on all that winter layering which is amazing.

A hat to accessorise

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you shouldn’t accessories. If you haven’t been wearing hats this season, you’ve still got time to get yourself 2017’s winter fashion must-have. This classic fedora style is elegant and can be worn in all seasons.

Classic knit dress

Another classic winter must-have is the knit dress. It comes in many styles – figure hugging, lose shifts, tunic dresses, minis & maxis, so do the right thing and get yourself one that suits you.

The right knit dress will not only flatter your figure every time you slip it on, it will also be fashionable every year you wear it.

Oversized sweater

One of the nicest things about oversized sweaters is how free they make one feel. Plus, there’s no fiercer combination than a soft sweater paired with slimming tights.

Fitted cardigans

If you’re not a fan of oversized sweaters, you can go for a slim fitting cardigan, it’s just as effective as an oversized one. Whether you are into neutral colours or want to go for a really bold look, cardigans pretty look great when paired with anything.

Beanies

The beanie has the power to make your hair go from drab to fab, and it’s amazing. Another thing to love about beanies is that you can dress them up or down to fit your style.
