Winter Clothing Staples Every Woman Needs

There are various things that dictate what type of clothing we wear, which includes everything from our budgets and personal tastes through to the weather and the seasons. During the winter, the wardrobes of most women go through a radical change as they switch their lighter, summer clothing for winter essentials that are practical, warm yet still stylish. It is important for any woman to ensure she has the right clothing essentials for the winter period and there are a number of wardrobe clothing staples that every woman should aim to have during the winter. By making sure that you have the right clothing in your wardrobe this winter you can ensure you stay warm, snug and cosy without compromising on style and confidence no matter where you are going.

Essentials for your winter wardrobe

If you want to ensure that you are fully prepared for the colder season with a winter wardrobe packed with essentials, here are some of the items you should add to your list:

 

  • Knee length boots: Winter is not the time for those sling backs or stilettos, particularly if it the weather is very bad. This is why you should make sure you invest in a good pair of knee length boots, as these are versatile as well as stylish and practical. They can be worn for work, a casual trip out, or even a night out because you can team them with skirts, dresses, jeans and more. The amazing eBay website does a great selection of boots and offers some great deals. You save even more money when you shop at eBay by heading to OZCodes for some very generous discounts.

 

  • Skinny jeans: Skinny jeans are perfect for a number of reasons during the winter. First off, the fact that they cling to you means that you won’t have to worry about that winter chill biting at your legs and ankles because the tightness of the jeans will keep it out. You will also find that their design is perfect for layering items on top in order to keep warm. You can head to retailers such as River Island, Debenhams, for a great choice of skinny jeans to add to your wardrobe.

 

  • High neck jumper: When it comes to feeling warm and still looking stylish, a high neck jumper is ideal. The great thing about these, apart from the fact that they keep the cold out, is that they can be worn for work, days out or casual evenings out. They also look great with jeans as well as jumpers and work-wear, which makes them a versatile addition to the wardrobe. The Iconic offers a good choice of tops and jumpers so take a look through the selection there to purchase your high neck jumper.

  • Knitted dress: Knitted dresses were in fashion some decades ago but have made a big comeback. Winter shouldn’t mean that you can’t wear a dress and by investing in a knitted dress you can enjoy the style and confidence that comes with wearing a dress without skimping on warmth and practicality.

 

  • Cashmere sweater: Cashmere has a texture and appearance that oozes luxury and style. Winter is the best time to wear this because you can show off your great fashion sense while revelling in the warmth and comfort of cashmere. A cashmere sweater is therefore an excellent addition to your winter wardrobe and you can enjoy some great deals on these and other sweaters at retailers such as Neverland Store.

 

  • Winter coat: Of course, a winter coat is essential during this season but keeping warm with your outerwear does not mean you have to do away with style. Invest in a statement coat such as metallic or a bold colour like red in order to brighten up your outfit, add a splash of colour to a gloomy grey day, and keep you looking stylish while you are out and about.

  • Knitted scarf: Scarves are not just good for keeping the cold out but also for adding style to any outfit. Accessorising with a knitted scarf will therefore enable you to enjoy practicality as well as style. You can even opt for a blanket scarf, which will envelope you in warmth but also make your outfit stand out all the more.

 

  • Leather jacket/coat: Winter is a great time to step out in a leather coat or jacket, as these are too heavy and hot for summer but look great during the colder season. You can really rock out when you wear leather and a stylish leather jacket is perfect for a glam night out as well as a casual shopping trip or day out.

 

  • Opaque tights: When it comes to winter fashion accessories, always have a pair of black opaque tights to hand. If you want to wear a skirt or dress during the colder weather, you don’t have to worry about having freezing legs when you have these tights. A high quality pair of opaque tights will keep you warm and they look great with skirts and dresses as well as with boots and shoes.

 

With these winter staples in your wardrobe, you can ensure that you have everything you need to combine style and practicality this winter.

OOTD: A Digital Nomad

Long time no outfit post right? Yes I know. I kind of lost my outfit post mojo some weeks ago but I think I have found it now. I have been so busy in the last couple of weeks, so outfit posts have been the last thing on my mind (sorry fashionistas) but I found style inspiration from somewhere a few days ago and shot some outfit photos. So brace yourselves, I think I am back in the game!

This outfit post is centred around this stunning brown KNOMO bag. I came across this Audley Slim Leather Bag by Knomo some days ago and I was blown away by the amount of space in it and how light weight it was (0.88kg). Most similar bags with a lot of compartments tend to weigh a lot more than this so it was love at first sight as soon as I carried it.

In this bag, I can conveniently carry my laptop, iPad, Kindle, phones, notepad, pens, wallet and other bits easily. It has so much space but in a slim compact design which is brilliant. I can see myself using this chic bag a lot. It oozes sophistication and understated style. It is so stylish and smart – the bag of the future. And great for a digital nomad like me. I can take all I need for work away with me in just this bag.

KNOMO bags are all about an organised life (#LIFEORGANISED) with a good-looking and functional bag. The whole idea behind the life organised message is about making everyday easier for digital nomads by eliminating clutter, and organising your belongings as efficiently as possible in a KNOMO bag. From luggage to organisers, backpacks to clutches, there is a KNOMO product for everyone – men and women available.

The coat I have on is an Oldie but a true Goldie. I have had it for a few years now and it still looks as good as new. That is why I rather cough out good money and buy quality than spend a few quid on a piece that wouldn’t even last a season. I can still see myself wearing this stunning winter coat many winters to come. Except I give it out of course.

I got the other items I have on about a year ago and they are all still going strong.

Autumn Fashion Season Swag

One of the best things about a new season is a new wardrobe. And one of the best things about Autumn fashion is the layering and the cosy pieces. I get super excited about new season trends. All I need is an unlimited budget to get buying right? If only…

Since I can’t buy all the cool pieces in the stores, I happily lust after them. I have my mind on so many stylish pieces. Here are a few of them –

 

Double Breasted Shearling Coat £40

I love this double-breasted Sherling Coat a lot. The tan suedette fabric with super soft cream faux fur lining and faux fur oversized lapel is bang on trend. I have nothing like this stunning piece in my wardrobe so I think this coat will be a fabulous addition.

 

SIK SILK CAMO INTERLOCK POLY TRICOT ZIP HOODIE £64.99

I am always on the lookout for stylish menswear for the man in my life and I think this camouflage hoodie is a fab choice. I love the camouflage print, I think it is so trendy and always in vogue. I wonder why I have no cam piece. I think I will need to change that. I can picture this hoody looking amazing on my man. It has Autumn fashion season swag written all over it.

 

Women’s Crew Neck Striped Wool Dress £180

This wool multi coloured dress is on my style radar; I don’t care how heavy the price tag is, lol..

I can picture myself rocking this beautiful piece with my black ankle boots. It would look amazing. Pairing this beauty with a pair of white sneakers would give it a nice laid back look too.

 

Alegria Watch, Gray £279

If you know me well enough, you would know how much I love my watches. I have not bought a new watch in a bit, but I have my eye on this gorgeous piece right here. It is so chic, so elegant. I love the sophisticated look and the grey dial. I would so love to have this beautiful watch on my wrist. Maybe Santa would come early…

This Faith Black Brooke High Boots is the Truth! I would classify this as a wardrobe necessity this season. It is a great pair of boots to have this Autumn. It would take you from day-to-night easily. I can’t leave with a few pairs of ankle boots in my wardrobe during Autumn/Winter.
