There are certain items that every girl needs to have in her closet. Winter is no exception to this fact. If you want to stay cozy, chic, and most importantly warm than keep reading this post for five must-have items!
This post is in collaboration with my insanely talented & gorgeous sister, Kristen! She did my hair, makeup, and pictures! If you want to see how she created my look, check out here YouTube channel and her blog as well! Leave a comment saying I sent you 🙂
Giant sweaters are what I live in between the months of November-March. I have an entire closet overflowing with sweaters because I can’t stop myself from buying more. It’s a problem but I’m working on it.
What I’m wearing: Sweater: Luca + Grae
This is a no brainer, but a coat that keeps you warm but is also stylish is KEY for the winter months. Jackets can get pretty pricey, but it’s honestly worth the investment. Chances are the jacket will last you a long time, and usually when they cost more money the warmer and better quality they are. So even though it’s tempting to buy a coat for $2o, it may not be the warmest! Make sure you can fit layers underneath as well to stay extra warm!
What I’m wearing: Furry Coat: American Eagle Outfitters (sold out?) here is a similar one!
Another obvious must-have, but I figured I would mention it anyway! Crazy enough some folks go out in snow without the proper boots which is a big no-no! Keep your toes warm and do your feet a favor and get some snow boots! Usually people associate snow boots with clunky, unattractive shoes, but it’s quite the contrary these days! So many brands offer adorable snow boots that you’ll want to incorporate into your every day look!
I’m so dumb and I forgot to take pictures of my boots! Here are some really cute options though! 🙂
These scarves are life changing. They can be used as a scarf, a poncho, a blanket, it’s incredible. I own about three and I love them all so much. They are sooo warm and because they’re so long and wide you’re able to layer them for extra warmth! It’s honestly a win-win situation.
What I’m wearing: Scarf: Aerie (original sold out but this is similar!)
Every girl needs a great pair of jeans, no matter what the season. Winter is the best time for jeans though because they make your oversized sweater and boots look a bit more put together. *Pro tip: wear thermals or leggings under your jeans for extra warmth :)*
What I’m wearing: Jeans: Forever 21
Bonus!! Slipper Boots
I had to mention this because I don’t think I could make it an entire day without wearing my slipper boots. I wear them in public as much as I can (they have a sole which is a huge bonus). Slipper boots come in all different price ranges and styles so whatever you’re comfortable with is up to you! I think they make the perfect addition to a snuggly winter night at home. If you don’t have a pair, do yourself a favor and buy one! Your feet will thank you I promise.
What I’m wearing: Slipper boots: Target (mine aren’t available anymore but these are even cuter!)
I had sooo much fun doing this post with my baby sis! Let me know if you guys want to see more collabs with her 🙂 We would love to do them! I hope you are all staying warm in this intense winter weather and you find my essentials helpful!
Stay cozy! xoxo
