Top 5 Winter Outfit Essentials
The bitter chill in the air has come around again. Whether you love or hate the cold, it’s time for you to adjust your wardrobe so that you can thrive on the coldest of days. These five outfit essentials are top picks for looking cute and staying warm this winter!
Big Cozy Sweaters
You can’t go wrong with comfortable clothing! Extra long or roomy sweaters are perfect for keeping warm and fashionable at the same time. Turtleneck sweaters are in this winter as well as off-the-shoulder sweaters. The best part is that they go well with nearly any outfit and you can wear them all winter long!
Long Stylish Boots
Boots are fantastic footwear all year round, but in winter the long rider boots are particularly chic! They combine both form and function, keeping your feet and legs warm and dry even in snow while looking slimming and fabulous. Try to get boots that are waterproof to maximize your comfort, since we all know that cold, wet feet can be extremely uncomfortable!
Warm Knit Beanies
Beanies are back in style! The slouch knit beanies are a very popular style because they combine comfort and casual style in a single piece. Knit beanies are particularly warm because of the heavy material they’re made of, and look great when worn slouch style. The main drawback to knit beanies is that they aren’t waterproof, so they can get soaked in heavy snowfall. Try to keep it dry!
Chunky Woven Scarves
Scarves are always a perfect accessory, so the challenge during the winter is picking the right kind of scarf. Your silk and sheer scarves should already be put away until spring which leaves you with knit and woven scarves. This season try to go with “chunky” scarves that have large or exaggerated stitching, similar to full-arm knits shown below. Not only do chunky scarves look fantastic, but they’re super warm Similar to sweaters, longer is often better as well!
Mittens to Match
Gloves and mittens are your ultimate flex option with your winter outfit. All that really matters is making sure that your handwear matches another part of your outfit. If you’re wearing black leather boots, then you should consider black leather gloves. If you are wearing a gray knit scarf, then a similar gray knight pair of mitten would go best with it. Pick what you like the most that matches!
