Winter Wardrobe Essentials to Get You Through the Season
Chilly weather is upon us, so if you haven’t already started to reconsider your wardrobe, it’s time. Let’s go over some winter wardrobe essentials to get you through the season without freezing.
Let’s Talk Layers
A great winter wardrobe celebrates the fashionable art of layering. Consider leggings, tights, and undershirts crucial parts of your cold-weather wear.
With layering, you may not even need to pack most of your daily wardrobe away. For example, layering a button-up over your favorite graphic tee makes for an instant grunge look. You can even keep around shorts for winter by simply layering up and keeping warm!
A Good Pair of Gloves
A great pair of gloves saves you and your hands a lot of unnecessary trouble. Search out the right fit and of course, be wary of gloves that catch on your nails. Consider well-made wool gloves, thermal options, or even faux leather for a sleek look.
Long Sleeves That You Love
Some of us don’t keep many long-sleeved shirts in our closets. A chilly evening spent dining outside is a great reminder of the value of a long-sleeved shirt or two. Turtleneck shirts, bodysuits, and crew necks are all options that combat the cold.
However, ensure you keep options you’re comfortable wearing. Get picky when it comes to materials and the cuts of long-sleeved tops.
Cozy Coats and Sweaters
Coats and sweaters are the winter wardrobe no-brainer. Even if you aren’t trudging through snow each day in a puffy jacket, it’s wise to keep a sleek wool long coat on hand for chilly days. Both flannel and wool are insulating fabrics that survive falling snow while keeping you toasty.
When it comes to sweaters, cashmere and cotton alike create a fireside look. Whether you go slim or oversized, sweaters are worth breaking out for those indoor cozy couch moments.
For those of you who don’t know the pain of sunlight hitting a blanket of perfect snow, consider this a heads up. Snow reflects the UV light from the sun right back at your eyes, making even the walk to the car treacherous. A stylish pair of sunglasses protects your vision and adds a final touch of sophistication to your winter wardrobe.
These winter wardrobe essentials get you through the season with a lot less shivering and just as much style. When it comes to seasonal clothes, just remember to prioritize comfort and function as much, if not more than the final look. No one wants to deal with a runny nose on their January morning coffee run.
