Hi guys! I hope you had a relaxing weekend. It snowed here in DC which means I’m officially in hibernation mode. It’s nice though – I always come off of these lazy weekends feeling refreshed. I love an excuse to cook at home and binge watch a new Netflix show. We watched the Netflix show You this past weekend which was an interesting one. It definitely kept us hooked until the end so I recommend it if you love suspenseful thrillers.
From January to February my mind is purely focused on staying warm and less about looking cute in a trendy outfit. I’m constantly reaching for the same items over and over because they keep me warm and comfortable. I compiled a list of 20 items that are basic MUST HAVE wardrobe pieces for winter to get you through without sacrificing style too much. You too will realize how much you will wear this items all winter long.
A few honorable mentions on the items I picked…The one item I recommend anyone get is a good puffy coat. I got this Patagonia coat for Christmas 3 years ago and it is my saving grace every winter. It is so warm and the cut is also pretty flattering. All of the beanies I own are also big lifesavers for keeping me warm in the winter. You can always have a little fun with the beanies you wear to incorporate a little bit of your personality and style. The big Free People beanies are always a favorite because they cover my whole head plus they look super cute on. You can find me in my Patagonia better sweater every weeknight and weekend because they keep me cozy inside and layer perfecting for outside. You’ll also thank me for owning these boots and these boots.
As for the more stylish items I love building out a collection of turtlenecks (my favorite!) and cardigans. They keep you the warmest and are just no brainers when it comes to getting dressed in the morning for work. The jeans I wear the most because they go with any winter shoe and boot are these Citizens high rise jean. Speaking of boots my most worn boots are flat suede booties. They are comfortable and go with every outfit. These Marc Fisher booties are perfect!
