After much anticipation we bid farewell to the summer pieces that have dominated our streets for the past months. Winter is the best time to layer up and for that you need high-quality and fashionable pieces. Cold weather makes for best fashion moments allowing you to create pieces that are both versatile and timeless.
This season you might be looking for ways to elevate your wardrobe, the key is to search for pieces that are laid back but not boring and don’t be afraid to incorporate a pop of colour and if you want you can recycle some of your summer accessories and dress them up for winter. So if you find yourself at the stores and don’t know what to shop for winter we have got you covered. Here are a few staples to add to your wardrobe this season.
No wardrobe is complete without a pair of denim jeans, whether its a classic high-rise fit, baggy, skinny or low cut, trust me you can never go wrong with owning a pair.
Boots need to be a part of your shoe rotation this winter, and lucky for you you are not limited to one type, there is an endless selection of boots to choose from. Knee high boots, stilettos boots and thigh high boots are perfect for a night out, Chelsea boots and ankle boots will definitely complete any day outfit and if you opt for the platform boots, they sure will add some inches to your outfits.
An oversized coat has never looked great, it instantly adds some air of sophistication to your outfits. Don’t forget to add it to your shopping list this winter, it sure will come in handy during those frigid days, keeping you warm but of course in style.
This season everybody needs to add a pair of trainers to their shoe collection, not only are they practical but they are also stylish and can turn your outfits into a fashion statement.
When choosing knitwear mix things up, opt for both neutral and bold colours. Knit wear has a lot of variety to it so don’t be afraid to play around with design and texture when purchasing one. A knitwear that everybody should own this season is a chunky knit it gives off a cosy aesthetic.
Tailored pants sure do make any outfit look effortless, pleated pants can be worn with anything and everything and they can always be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.
Dressing up for winter can be challenging, if embraced it can give you an opportunity to play around with your clothes and create warm stylish outfits.
Just remember layering is key this season.
