The 5 Styling Pieces You Need To Invest In This Winter
So it looks like we are in the full swing of winter! I can tell by the way my car is frosted over in the morning and how I have finally switched over from an iced matcha latte to a hot one. Now that it’s getting colder and our outfits are getting warmer - here are a few of my favorite timeless styling pieces that are a must in every winter wardrobe.
1. Fun Scarf
For me, a fun scarf during the holiday season and colder months is an absolute must! Typically, I reach for more neutral attire so adding a bright colored scarf to my outfit is not only a functional accessory that keeps me extra warm, but also a timeless fashion statement. Keeping a go-to scarf in your closet will enhance your outfit this winter with minimal to no effort on your part!

If you’re looking for your new go-to shoe for the winter season, through the Uggs in the closet and opt for a more elegant and versatile option - the loafer. The loafer is a great pair of shoes to sport in the winter because you can style them in so many ways! Cozy them up with chunky and warm socks and warm leggings or dress them up for a night out with some denim and a cute blouse. No matter how you style them, a pair of good loafers will never go to waste in your rotation.

3. Trench Coat
Abercrombie & Fitch
If you’re looking for a classy chic look this winter, invest in a trench coat this season! These stylish and minimal coats are perfect for keeping warm without ruining or hiding the outfit you spent so much time planning out in your head. I love this one from Abercromie & Fitch to add on top of a sweater, jeans, and boots. It will no doubt elevate any look you put together this season.

4. Layering Pieces
If you haven’t stocked up on layering pieces this winter, you need to get on it! This could be anything from a black turtleneck to a plain white tee. These layering pieces are so versatile and can be dressed up and down. For a more sophisticated look, pair a white turtleneck under your favorite knit sweater and some jeans. For a more casual look, maybe try a mockup under your go-to crew neck and some leggings! The great thing about layering pieces is that they are the perfect base for any outfit, especially when you want to keep warm in cool weather.

5. High Quality Denim
A sturdy pair of jeans is non-negotiable for the winter season. With a good pair of thick denim, you will always have the perfect base for all your fun winter outfits that will also keep your legs warm and cozy throughout the colder months. In terms of styling, my jeans tend to be at the center of any outfit I plan out and there’s something about having a pair of jeans that you know will fit just right. It will get you through the winter, I swear!
