5 Winter Wardrobe Essentials Every Woman Needs

5 Winter Wardrobe Essentials Every Woman Needs
Emily Gugenberger

Winter is well and truly here, and if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to compromise your fashion sense during the colder months. But just because the weather outside is cold, dark and dreary doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to be!

So, whether you would prefer to throw on a stylish blazer or faux fur jacket, keep it simple with a comfy sweater or tailored trousers, or spice up your outfit with a statement accessory, we have the winter wardrobe essentials for you.

Suit it Up
It can’t be denied that a girls go to outfit in the colder months is the classic sweater and jeans look. It may be perfect for a casual outing or a lazy day at home, but what about date night, or a fancy dinner with friends? On these occasions elevate your casual outfit with a chic and timeless blazer to add some structure and interest to your look, and make your friends jealous of your impeccable style.

Tailored Trousers
Although jeans are a winter wardrobe staple, this year has seen a new and more practical fashion trend taking their place, the tailored trouser. Like the blazer, the tailored trouser, which is usually sporting a gingham of checked print, is the perfect pairing for a neutral sweater and pair of boots. Not only are they stylish, but their loose fit allows for a pair of thermals to  be easily concealed underneath, leaving you feeling like you are wearing a pair of pajamas or sweats rather than a fashionable outfit.

Fashion Forward in Fur
As we approach the heart of the winter season it’s time to get rid of our denim jackets and cardigans for a warmer alternative, the faux fur jacket. Not only do I love this fashion essential for its practicality, but this trend has exploded onto the fashion scene, offering a diverse variety of colours and styles to choose from. So, whether you want to keep it minimal with a black faux fur jacket or feel ferocious in leopard print, this essential has an option for every fashion lover.

Sweater Season
Although sweaters are a timeless fashion essential, this winter has seen the biggest and most diverse range of sweaters in decades. With an array of colours, fabrics and styles to choose from I think I have died and gone to sweater heaven. With such a large assortment of sweaters available I can guarantee you will never repeat an outfit this winter season!

Make a Statement
Statement accessories have been available for many winters seasons, however, never have hair accessories, hats or belts been as popular, or as essential as they have been this year. These accessories are the perfect way to look like a serious stylist who has put extra time and effort into their outfit. I have also found statement accessories to be a practical addition to my outfits, as hair clips and hats are an ingenious way to tame wild hair during windy days, while belts can be used to make those loose-fitting pants fit flawlessly.
