Winter Wardrobe Staples

Hey girls! In today’s tutorial, I'm going to cover all the winter staples and basics that are the ultimate wardrobe must-haves! These classic pieces make dressing for cold weather a walk in the park.

Wear a knitwear sweater 

The outfit I am wearing has a few of my winter favorites. First I have this gorgeous knitwear sweater that is a great winter staple. My outfit also includes a skirt. I absolutely love this skirt and how it works perfectly with the cropped knit. I chose to wear this oversized coat which is a complete staple during winter. It keeps me warm and helps pull any look together. 

Wear boots

I added a pair of thigh-high boots to this look. These boots are so on-trend right now and are a great statement piece to have in your winter wardrobe. If you don’t have a pair then any chunky boots would look stunning with this outfit. 

Wear all black

Wear a thin knitwear top

Knitwear is a big trend this winter which is why in this second winter staple outfit, I am rocking a thin knit sweater. I paired the sweater with a pair of black, cropped pants. This ballon style, wide-cut leg, is a definite trend for 2021. I decided to add a pair of heeled ankle boots to this look which makes it more of a dressy outfit but I think a chunky combat boot would work as well. 

Wear pumps

A pair of pumps works beautifully with this look as well! This takes the look in a more professional direction. Even though my outfit is black from head to toe, the off-black knit adds a little bit of depth to the look. I decided to wear a belt to cinch my waist which makes this look more fitted and well put together. 

Wear a loose shirt

Wear a button-down 

One of my year-round staples is a white button-down. For this season I chose a button-down in a more champagne-like color that adds warmth to any look. This shirt tucks so beautifully into my leather trousers making this outfit a staple for winter! I decided to pair this look with my ankle cut heel boots and I must say I am just in love with the whole outfit. 

Wear a suit

Wear a suit 

Suits have been on trend all year round and they’re not going anywhere this winter! You really can’t go wrong if you wear a pair of black pants and a black blazer. I decided to wear my champagne button down with this suit and just left it hanging loose. I love how the shirt adds an oversized element to an otherwise very fitted outfit. This look is chic and effortless!

Wear a coat 

This long coat is a definite must-have this winter! Not only does it look amazing with almost anything but you can layer chunky knit pieces under it. This coat is a piece that you feel instantly confident while wearing. 

Wear a roll neck

Wear a roll neck blouse 

Another winter special is a roll neck blouse. I love a roll neck all year round but in winter they definitely help keep you a little warmer. A roll neck blouse is chic and is a basic in my winter wardrobe. 

Wear a vest

Wear a vest 

In this next outfit, I layered this black vest over my button-down. The gold in the vest picks up the champagne tone of the shirt and works perfectly with it. I styled it with black pants and a pair of pumps. 

Minimalist winter wardrobe

Wear a blazer 

Another winter staple is this knit black dress that I just love! I paired the dress with this checked blazer. Checked material is really in right now! If you want to add a belt over the blazer to cinch your waist, that would look gorgeous with this look. If it's cold, tights would work with this look as well! Having a few winter staples and basics makes styling outfits a whole lot easier! Which look do you like best? Let me know in the comments!
