Six Winter Essentials

In today’s tutorial, we are going to be talking about winter outfit ideas. I will be showing you 6 winter essentials that help me stay warm and look stylish all throughout the coldest season. One thing I love about going from fall to winter is that there isn’t a very big, dramatic change in the pieces I wear. I love to make a few tweaks to outfits I have from the fall so that they are wearable during the winter. Follow this style guide and check out these 6 winter clothing essentials!

Winter outfit style


The first obvious essential is the coat. I feel like a coat can be the main character of a winter look. When it comes to coats the options are really endless. You can get so many different types of coats with different silhouettes, colors, and materials. In this outfit, I am wearing this bold, grid coat. I chose it because it really makes a statement without it being bright colors. I think this coat works so well with a basic top and a pair of jeans and boots. 

How to dress for winter


The next winter essential item on my list is boots. I feel like you can’t really have a winter wardrobe without boots. If you are trying to put together a winter capsule wardrobe I definitely recommend getting a classic pair of black or brown ankle boots. I myself am a huge fan of over the knee boots. I think they add glam and style to any winter outfit. 

Wear boots

In this look, I opted for a pair of snakeskin, over the knee boots. I love how these boots add a trendy touch to my look. I paired the boots with a faux leather, caramel skirt, and a plain, cream sweater.

Style a sweater


Sweaters are just a must-have in the winter. There are so many options when it comes to sweaters that you will always find something that suits your style. 

Stylish in winter

The look that I’m wearing here features a V-neck cropped sweater. In this look, I pair the sweater with trouser pants and so the outfit is a little more dressed up. It’s important to remember that sweaters don’t have to look frumpy and plain but can look very well put together and stylish. 

Accessorize with hats


The next winter essential on my list is hats. Not only do they keep you warm but they are also a very trendy winter accessory to finish off any look. Find the hat style that suits you and experiment with adding hats to your winter looks. 

Easy winter style


Jeans are a definite winter essential. They are such a go-to for most people during the winter! I think that a darker wash is better suited for colder months. 

Style your jeans

In this look, I pair my jeans with a black top and combat boots. Adding the moto jacket definitely brings a little more interest to this look. 

Wear scarves


The next essential item is an accessory and it’s a scarf. Not only do scarves keep your neck and body warm but they definitely help add a sense of playfulness to winter looks. I always try and opt for a printed scarf or one with a bold color to just glam up my look. 

Be stylish in winter

Here you can see that I added this scarf to my jeans look and there is no denying that it adds a fun element to the outfit. Comment below and let me know which of these winter essentials are on the top of your list!
