5 Winter Wardrobe Essentials

It's pretty clear from the way it looks outside that winter is in full force. As I write this post I am cosy under a blanket with a chunky knitted jumper on and it's looking very grey and miserable outside. Despite the bitterness, it's one of my favourite seasons though. There's nothing quite like looking at the changing colour of nature, the fresh crisp air, chunky knits, boots, and not forgetting berry coloured lipsticks. Now with the colder weather comes a complete overhaul in my wardrobe, now you may have caught my post about updating my autumn wardrobe, and seeing as we are having more colder days I have completely moved my wardrobe over to winter. So I thought that now would be the perfect time to share my five winter wardrobe essentials that are versatile and will carry you through the season.

1// A Neutral Handbag

Now I am a handbag girl and have a different handbag for every occasion. A neutral handbag is a key part of any winter wardrobe. I have been hunting for the perfect everyday handbag, but the ones I like are either too big or not quite big enough. So I was pretty happy that I finally found an all rounder. A bag that is neutral and can go with pretty much any outfit I try to put together, it's practical and looks pretty. This Fiorelli Colette Shoulder Handbag in Tan is a great all rounder. It's a great medium sized handbag in a neutral tan shade. The sleek silhouette and striking shade are just a few of the features with this everyday bag. The Colette comes with triple compartments with mag dot closures as well a central zip pocket, complimented by the cute grab handles and detachable strap ready to grab and go in an instant. There are more colours available as some of the colours are currently on sale and would make such a cute gift for a loved one. Everyone needs a new handbag!

2// Denim

Skinny jeans are perfect for winter as their streamlined silhouette allows you to layer multiple items on top for warmth. Wear them with flat heel boots and a leather jacket in the day or pointy toe heels and a snazzy top for a night out on the town. These go-to choice and you can do no wrong. For a twist on the denim you could choose to wear a cute denim midi tube skirt. Practical yet stylish, this pull-on stretch denim tube skirt deserves a place in every woman's wardrobe. The easy-to-wear, super-soft fabric is great for everyday, meanwhile the flat elasticated waistband ensures maximum comfort. For an effortlessly chic look.

3// A Cosy Knitted Jumper

I love winter, because that means you can choose a chunky knit and be done with an outfit! It's officially jumper season. It has to be said that a chunky oh-so-cuddly knitted jumper is something everyone should have in their winter wardrobe. A cable knit works with everything. This Bardot Cable Jumper can be paired with a jeans on the weekend, a button-down and tailored trousers for the office, and a pleated, feminine skirt for a holiday party. This knitted jumper will more than earn it's keep this season. But for the ultimate comfort everyone needs on of these Super Soft High Neck Jumper's in their wardrobes. This boucle high-neck jumper will be your most loved wardrobe staple! Simply pair with jeans and boots for an effortless look, or team with a printed midi skirt for a chic look.

4// Statement Scarf

Accessorise with a scarf that adds style as well as warmth to your winter ensemble. I do have a slight thing about scarves and I probably have too many, but it doesn't stop me from getting more. I adore going to places like Primark and H&M for my basics. However now that we are into the colder months of the year means that we can indulge in some statement scarves. Now your style of scarf depends on your own personal style. Plaid and cold weather go together like hot chocolate and marshmallows. But I much prefer making a statement with colours and tend to go for bold and vibrant when it comes to making a choice. This scarf is super soft and oh so luxurious and in a classic mustattd colour is a great when adding some seasonal festivity to a neutral outfit. My favourite thing about a statement scarf is that they can be styled a million different ways. Some are large enough to wear as a shawl, wrap around your neck and drape over your shoulders, or loop around the usual scarf way. Others can make an outfit. What kind of statement do you like to make with a scarf? 

4// Versatile Boots

Because boots are usually more expensive, it's important to shop for ones that can be worn with a number of outfits. Look for a pair of boots that compliments the clothes you already have in your wardrobe. Ankle boots will certainly become a stable. Ever so stylish and versatile this shoe never seems to get old. Pair with a dress and tights in the day or finish off any going out look. For me some simple black Chunky Heel Chelsea Boots are always my choice. A pair of black boots is a must for any footwear collection and stylish heeled ankle boots are versatile enough for all manners of outfit. What are your essentials for your winter wardrobe?
