11 Winter Essentials for Women
It may only be the beginning of the summer, but it is never too soon to start looking toward the next season and preparing your wardrobe accordingly. While you are rolling out the sundresses and flip flops to get ready for that summer heat, we are going through 11 essentials that are going to be necessities in your wardrobe this winter.
1. The Teddy Coat
The cute and cuddly teddy coat has seen a recent resurgence in popularity over the last few years, and for good reason. These fluffy coats are fantastic for keeping warm in the cold weather, but they are also an incredibly stylish fashion statement. Pair a tan teddy coat with a black sweater and boots to look fantastic while battling the cold.
2. The Pea Coat
A classic jacket used by men and women all over the world, the pea coat is another fantastic winter wear option. Well-known for their double-breasted front, short length, slash pockets, broad lapels and large plastic, wooden or metal buttons that run vertically down the front, the pea coat is an iconic fashion item for all the right reasons. Perfectly blending practicality and style, if you are considering investing in a new coat this winter, the pea coat would be a fabulous choice.
3. The Tailored Blazer
Winter is obviously the coldest time of the year, but that doesn’t mean that there will be blizzards and storms day in and day out. On the days that are cool but not freezing, consider a tailored blazer rather than a bulky coat or jacket. These are especially handy for when you are going to work or any other occasions that require a more formal dress sense.
4. The Leather Jacket
A leather jacket is a must-have, particularly in the colder months. Much like the tailored blazer, a leather jacket is a great alternative to a chunky coat if it isn’t cold enough to warrant one. Consider the leather jacket for a more informal outing.
5. Chunky Sweaters
Chunky sweaters are the epitome of homely comforts when the temperature starts to drop. Whether it’s a cable knit sweater, a chunky cardigan or a woolen, knitted sweater, you can never go wrong with a well-made sweater.
Another comforting kind of sweater, the turtleneck is a great choice for a more formal affair in the cold weather or for work. Pair it with a pea coat or teddy coat for a sophisticated yet comfortable and warm fashion style.
7. Long Sleeves for Layering
Long-sleeved shirts are great on their own during the winter, but for an extra burst of warmth, consider layering them with a variety of items. This can range from combining a plain long-sleeved shirt with a leather or denim jacket or going for a striped long-sleeved shirt with a cropped sweater. Mix and match to create a practical yet stylish look that suits your tastes.
8. Warm Tights
Tights can be a lifesaver in the winter, especially thicker, opaque tights or even thermal or fleece-lined tights. You can pair them with skirts, shorts or dresses and mix and match patterns, styles and colors. No matter how you choose to wear them, tights are a fantastic way to be warm yet fashionable this winter.
9. The Beanie Hat
A beanie is a must-have accessory for anyone in the colder months, no matter what your personal style choice may be. The versatile nature of the beanie means that you are sure to find something that suits your tastes. Pair a beanie with a chunky sweater and boots for a warm, winter look, or combine one with a nice turtleneck to achieve a chic and sophisticated style.
Boots are one of the best choices in terms of footwear in the winter as they keep your feet toasty while looking awesome. Whether it is a long, knee-high pair of boots with a mini skirt and long coat or short ankle boots with jeans and a sweater, you are sure to find a style to suit you.
11. Classic Hoodie
Hoodies are perfect comfort wear in the colder months. Pick your color and style, and you are good to go. Hoodies are another versatile fashion piece, but they are all about comfort and sometimes comfort is the best thing you can have when the nights grow longer and colder. For a sustainably made hoodie, consider the Mercer St. Grey Women’s Organic Cotton Reversed Hoodie from Hue Division.
