Every season has its must-have pieces, but when it comes to winter, there is nothing more important than staying warm and stylish. But how can we stay warm and also look stylish when there’s -20° outside? By mastering the art of layering and having a few statement pieces that will make your winter outfit stand out. Keep scrolling to find out more.
1. The go-to coat that works with everything
Nothing is more important than outwear during winter, so make sure you invest in a coat that will definitely stand out. Maxi or knee length, printed or not, black, bold or neutral, choose the one that suits your style the best. If you are undecided, or you just love hoarding on outwear (like I do), then you can always opt for more coats in different styles. It doesn’t hurt to experiment.
A lot of people would say skinny jeans are the perfect go-to jeans for winter, but if you ask me, I would say mom jeans are better. The ones I am wearing today are mom jeans, and they can be found in so many different styles. I am currently all over the reworked ones. Wear them with a chunky knit and ankle boots and you will look as the cool kid from the school yard. Can never go wrong with that combo.
3. Ankle boots
Heeled or not, make sure they are sleek. After all a good pair of shoes can make your outfit pop, so why not choose a statement pair that will make you stand out from the crowd? I love these gold metallic ones, they work so well with everything from my wardrobe!
4. Chunky knits
Nothing looks more effortless chic than a chunky knit mixed with a pair of jeans. Opt for a colorful sweater instead of a black one and pair it with a shirt underneath.
5. The colorful bag
Why stick to the same old black bag just because it’s winter? Opt for something colorful, it will brighten up both your day and your outfit. Think my outfit would have looked the same with a black crossbody bag?
Well to me these are some of the most important pieces when it comes to dressing up for winter. There will come a second part of this post where I will be talking about other staples and accessories. Now excuse me while I spin around in the snow shower in my warm ChicWish oversized coat and bright VIPme chunky knit.
