Noun; ‘the cold season between autumn and spring in northern latitudes (in the Northern Hemisphere from the winter solstice to the vernal equinox; in the Southern Hemisphere from the
summer solstice to the autumnal equinox).’
Or in other words: that time of year when you have the need to snuggle up in the thickest blanket possible.
These are my wardrobe must haves for the cold season:
- A pair of boots (or two)
Boots are the shoes I live in particularly over winter, these black Chelsea boots from office are my favourite they are incredibly comfortable and suitable for whatever winter weather may throw at you. For a warmer alternative I absolutely love these knee high boots that I brought n TKMAX a couple of years ago. They have lasted me around 3 winters and are still durable and warm particularly in snow. TKMAX have great cheaper alternatives to designer shoes so great if you are on a budget.
- The corduroy skirt
With a pair of boots and thick tights you cant go wrong! I love the colour of this one from Topshop as it goes with almost everything and can be worn all year round. The texture of corduroy adds uniqueness and interest to an outfit – effortless style.
- A turtleneck jumper
Turtlenecks seem to be a love/hate relationship – I have definitely fallen for them. I love how they look particularly with shorter hair and they keep your neck warm too- bonus! However any kind of chunky warm jumpers are super cozy so you can feel like you’ve brought your blanket with you.
- A good pair of jeans
Any colour, any fit, always an essential. A good pair of jeans will see you through many years throughout all the seasons. My favourites are from Zara or Topshop as they have the best fit for me, I like the shops that size jeans in waist size and length as they are more likely to have your perfect fit – if you have longer legs and a thinner waist or if you are shorter than the length other stores sell for example.
- A warm coat
To get you through the ongoing rain or whatever winter weather may bring. Dorothy Perkins coat
what is your winter staple?
