Living in Florida, the cooler days are few and far between, but with winter comes the occasional chilly day, and it pays to be prepared! Last month, AroonMelane published a post called “My Favorite Sweater Dresses For This Season, highlighting the beautiful sweater dress and the many sweater dresses out there that you are bound to love. But what else should be in your closet as your winter essentials?
1. The Chunky Fisherman Sweater
As Glamour is quick to point out, the chunky, cuddly fisherman sweater is every fashion designer and blogger’s dream come true. The cable knit is versatile, and you’ll find many uses for it through cooler days, be it with a skirt or with a nice pair of tailored pants.
2. A Classic Black Turtleneck
Another item you should have, the black turtleneck is something you can wear in every season, but it works wonderfully in the winter because it’s easy to pair it with a nice midi coat. If the weather isn’t cold enough for layering, the turtleneck itself should be classy enough with a few chunky accessories.
3. The Leather Boot
An obvious choice, the leather boot is featured on just about every Winter Essentials list, and even the Gift Guide on Woman Within. While a good pair of leather boots is too expensive to give as a gift, making the investment for yourself is sure to pay off, as the versatile leather boot can be worn over pants and leggings, or with the right cut of dresses.
4. A Fleece Scarf
Nothing quite says winter as well as fleece does. This warm material comes in all shades, and you’re sure to find that a good scarf is a great way to add color to a drab winter outfit, as well as add that much-needed texture and layering to your winter clothes.
5. The Bright Carryall
Harper’s Bazaar calls the bright-colored carryall “a smile does when you are feeling down” because it instantly lifts your mood and elevates your outfit. This is a great way to add personality to your winter clothes if you find yourself wearing a lot of neutral shades.
What do you think count as your winter wardrobe essentials?
