So, outside is cold as f and you find yourself spending more and more time inside? Well, I have your back. Fashion should be practical and useful no matter of the weather. In the wintertime there are some pieces you should have in your closet. I put together a list of 9 items you need to have in order to survive this January.
I am a strong believer that leggings are not pants and you shouldn’t wear them as something they are not. Leggings are great to layer under your jeans, pants and even skirts if you get the right pair. I suggest you get yourself a pair of sports leggings because they do have a cosy lining on the inside and you can also wear them when you go to the gym.
Winter is all about beeing smart what clothes you layer over each other. The best shirt to layer under your sweater is a shirt made of polypropylene, cotton, wool or nylon. You can find the, at any store that sells sports items. Those materials will keep you warm.
Every time I buy myself a new pair of boots, I make sure the size is ok to wear fuzzy socks with them. Why would you only wear them inside the house if you have the option to wear them outside and keep your feet warm all day?
Fur lined shoes
No, I am not talking about the Prada moccasins that have fur lining. I am talking about a pair of leather boots that will not let water get inside and also have fur. If you don’t have a problem with natural leather and fur, that is the way to go because it will keep you way warmer than artificial leather.
Heels with a grip
Boots are great if you go to work, but if you are going out with friends on a Friday night, you will need at list a pair of cute ankle boots. Make sure when shopping for ankle boots they have a good grip. Also, make sure you always look down when walking in the snow. This way, you will not say hello to the floor.
Yes, they are expensive but also worth it. Invest in a black one and it will go with all your outfits. On top of that, if you take care of it, it will last you a long time.
Oversized Puff Jacket
As I said in an earlier post: a quality oversized jacket is all you need for outerwear this winter.Why oversized? Because you can layer as much as you please underneath and also is trendy and in style.
Night cream, day cream, hand cream, lip balm
This is not really fashion related but you do need them to survive in cold weather.In winter time, make sure you always have hand cream and lip balm in your purse, apply moisturiser every morning before foundation and every night before going to sleep.
I am so excited for the new series: Style it Sunday. That means every Sunday I will have an article fashion related. If you have any suggestions, don’t forget to leave them down below.
Hope you have a great week.
