5 Winter Wardrobe Essentials

As we all know, winter is coming. Many of us probably aren’t feeling particularly festive during the COVID-19 pandemic, but there’s nothing quite like treating yourself as a perfectly valid form of self-care. Dark evenings are drawing in, with the promise of cozy nights at home, falling leaves, and the potential for snow. Whether you’re an essential worker or a home-based gal, this is the perfect time to revamp your winter wardrobe to stay warm, look super stylish, and cultivate some stunning pieces.

These are your five winter wardrobe essentials to create a trendy style that will look perfect for the 2020 winter season.

Toasty Tops

Let’s look at the first and most basic item for a winter look: a top. There is no point in hiding away under gigantic Christmas sweaters. They’re unflattering and too garish. A great basic item is a long-sleeved cotton top or even a sleeveless one. These can be used as a foundational layer so you can create cute, cozy, and casual layered looks. Natural fabrics are best for keeping in warmth and letting the skin breathe. Choose a high neckline, and these tops can be worn under blazers, cardigans, and even under sweaters to keep you warm without breaking a sweat.

A cashmere sweater is a great investment for a winter wardrobe. One of these cuddly sweaters can be worn with just about everything you can imagine this winter. Wear it with tailored pants and a collared shirt for an office look, leather pants for a night out, or with a pair of denim jeans for a laid-back weekend look.

Maximize the Midi Skirt

A skirt in winter? Yes! Midi skirts have become the must-have item of 2019 and 2020. Cool, casual, and totally comfortable, the midi skirt can be a year-round staple. The length of the skirt keeps your legs warm and means that no one can see the pantyhose and fuzzy boot look you’re rocking underneath!

A sweater with a midi-skirt combination is a snuggly way to be comfortable all day long while still looking super trendy. Boots look great when matched with your perfect midi skirt, and you can finish the outfit with an amazing jacket. Keep a simple top underneath and then complete your look with a blazer, bomber, or leather jacket. This is comfortable fashion at its best.

A Perfect Pair of Pants

Finding the perfect pants can be difficult in winter. Not only do you need to find something that works for sitting in your home office, but the pants need to avoid trailing in muck or slush when you are able to go outside. This winter, opt for a pair of cropped pants. This avoids any issues related to winter weather while keeping the pants looking smooth and unruffled when you match them with a pair of boots. And for the seasonal staple of a classic pair of blue jeans, go for straight or skinny ones. The cut means they can tuck neatly into boots. Just make sure you get jeans with no extra embellishments - no ripping and no holes during the cold weather!

Go Long... With Your Coat

Winter is a great time to spend some cash on a brand new coat, and why go small when you can go long? A long coat never goes out of style. It’s a seamless choice to accentuate a sweater for a jeans and boots look, and it looks fantastic with a formal or office outfit. Go for wool for extra comfort, and wear it in big, bright, bold colors against black or blue jeans to add extra flair to what could otherwise just be a simple look.

Add Fun With Knee-High Boots

Is there anything more versatile than a classic knee-high boot? Great in the office or when you are going out somewhere on the weekend, a well-shaped knee-high boot with skinny jeans or a long pencil skirt adds a hint of sex appeal to even the most hum-drum days. Suede is not a great choice in winter, so opt for leather instead. A high-quality pair of leather boots will last for years, so choose carefully. Opt for black, gray, or brown to neutrally match with any outfit, or opt for animal prints to add fun to any occasion.
