Winter is coming! The coldest and coziest season of the year is the perfect time for embarking on a fashion adventure. While many envision winter as the time to snuggle inside a blanket with a hot beverage in hand, the season also allows you to go all-out with your winter wardrobe!
For those of you who love winter fashion, your time has come to take out those oversized sweats and ankle boots. Invest in new trendy fashion articles to make a bold statement. Here are some of the items you must add to your wardrobe this winter.
- Oversized sweaters
Who said that sweaters always had to be well-fitted? If Blake Lively can step out of her house in an oversized sweater functioning as a dress, what is stopping you from following the ultimate fashionista?
We understand that most of us cannot be as graceful as her, but we can surely take a few pages from her book, right?
There are multiple reasons why oversized sweaters have become so trendy in the past few years. Firstly, they are extremely cozy. Secondly, they are the ideal icebreaker outfit as we readjust to life after quarantine.
Finally, this single piece of clothing can be paired with different things to make completely new looks! For starters, you can just wear an oversized sweater to function as a dress. You can also opt for skinny jeans and sweats for the classic casual look or a skirt and sweats for more chic attire.
Turtlenecks are considered a staple for the winter season. And they are quite a timeless piece of clothing too! Especially considering how long they have ruled the fashion world.
We would advise you to always have a black turtleneck top in your wardrobe. This style and color will form the perfect base for a variety of outfits. You can choose to wear it with a leather jacket, blazer, trench coat, or merely a shrug or scarf.
Moreover, when paired with metallic jackets, they make for the perfect evening outfits!
- Leather Jacket
Leather jackets are surely an anomaly in the fashion world. Various trends have disappeared as fads, but leather jackets are one fashion article that has persisted through and even increased in popularity over the years!
Getting a well-fitted leather jacket to pair with your jeans, skirts, or to wear on top of dresses is always a great way to keep it warm and classy. There are various styles of leather jackets for you to choose from, ranging from custom leather jackets to bomber jackets.
If you are yet to have this article of clothing in your winter wardrobe, it is high time you get it! After all, most fashion gurus sport at least one leather-look every year!
- Wooly scarf
Do you live in a country that experiences harsh winters? If so, then you must ensure that you are warm and comfortable when you step out. One article of clothing that allows you to look stylish while being cozy is woolen or knitted scarf!
Get your hands on plain scarves of neutral shades like beige, black, white, and gray. This will allow you to use them on multiple outfits.
Considering that you can pull off wearing a scarf on a wide variety of outfits, including shirts and dresses, having a basic collection of it for the winter will be a great addition to your wardrobe.
Depending on the time of the day and the place you are going, you can choose to combine it with a beanie to look adorable further!
- Ruffled Shirt and Blazer
The hardest thing to do during winters is get up in the morning to go to work. After all, who would want to leave their cozy bed behind, right?
Well, while there is nothing you can do about that feeling, the least you can do is feel good as you step out. A sophisticated work outfit will probably get this job done for you. One potential look you can try is a ruffled shirt with checkered blazers and plain black dress pants.
Compared to a normal button-up shirt, ruffled upper wear adds a little texture and dimension to the look. Opt for a plain white shirt and pair it with a checkered blazer to enhance the contrasting look. And wearing dress pants ensures everyone knows you mean business!
Finish the look with either a white pair of loafers or plain pumps. And just like that, you are ready to take on the corporate world during winters!
- Combat Boots
The chances are that your winter wardrobe has classic ankle and cowboy boots. However, there is another type of boots you must invest in during these winters – combat boots!
Well, because they can be styled with virtually anything! This includes jeans, sweats, formal wear as well as floral fall dresses. What other footwear has given you such versatility recently?
Additionally, combat boots come in a variety of styles, ranging from flat soles to chunky platforms. They are also very comfortable to wear and hence are ideal for winter walks as well as formal dinners.
If you have decided to buy one, we urge you to pair it with a pretty floral dress, at least once! Especially on the cusp of fall and winter. It is the perfect way to bid adieu to the fall season and welcome the next one.
