Much to my sadness it’s that time of year when the days get shorter the mornings get cooler and a warm cup of tea and some pumpkin soup become a nightly ritual. One of my favourite things about winter is my Mum’s pumpkin soup, the absolute best, oh and the winter wardrobe of course!!
There are definitely some staple items I think are key for the fashionable girls winter wardrobe this year! I know it’s Autumn, but it’s a great time to start collecting a few fashion essentials given all the sales at the moment. Who wants to pay full price to look sheike? Certainly not me! I’m going to try cut it down to 4 pieces I think…
the cosy knit
Funnel neck chunky, cosy knits are an absolute must for winter. They can be worn casually or on an evening out with a pair of thigh high boots and a black leather skirt. In the height of winter, they are the absolute best clothing item to keep you warm yet create such a put together look.
on your feet
Boots can be pricey, but a worthy and timeless winter investment nonetheless. Black leather ankle boots with a slight heel are an absolute must for any winter wardrobe. They will go with anything and will truly last you for many winters to come. I love leather boots with jeans, skirts, dresses, they genuinely suit all looks. I get so much wear out of my flat black boots which are perfect for trips away when a lot of walking is involved or heading to and from work.
If you want an edgier look, go with a pair of suede black boots or a thigh high pair – heck buy all the booots!
the classic black jean
I know, I know jeans are somewhat of a no brainer when it comes to winter. But a classic black pair are a staple in any wardrobe. A pair of well fitted jeans can create an absolute knockout fit of the day. Paired with a cute tee/jumper (options are endless) and some heels/boots can make even the shortest legs go on for dayssss, a la any super model on the runway.
the biker jacket
Layering in winter is key and you can elevate your style game with a leather or faux leather jacket. A black leather jacket will go with everything, dress it up or down for a day or night look. A biker jacket is timeless and works perfectly as a warm layering piece.
