Summer has come and gone. It’s no longer bikini-body weather and all of those beach holidays are just a memory. As fall marches steadily towards winter, it’s time to put away those short shorts, halter tops and bikinis, and prepare for the icy tumult of the long months from December to February. But don’t despair! Just because your summer wardrobe is going into hibernation, that doesn’t mean you can’t look good in the coming winter months. Below, we’ll look at a number of must-have essentials for your winter wardrobe to ensure you look stylish and fashionable despite the cold.
A pair of snug boots
Ordinary shoes just won’t cut it when the winds howl and the snow falls. You’re going to need to invest in a pair of sturdy boots that will keep your feet warm and snug. This doesn’t mean you have to buy the first biggest, most brutal pair of hiking boots you come across. Rather, settle for something more dainty and aesthetically pleasing but with the same hardy quality. There’s a lot of choice out there, so do your research before you settle on a final pair. Take a look around here and browse the wide range of boots that will keep your feet warm no matter what the elements throw at you.
A statement coat
Wrapping up doesn’t need to be a boring affair. Many people opt for dark colors such as navy blue and black when it comes to picking out a coat. Yes, this is easy, but it’s not the only route you have to take. Having a coat that speaks about your personality is important since it’s likely to be the only thing that people see in the winter months. Therefore you should opt for something functional yet colorful, something utilitarian that pops or something that’s unique that speaks volumes about your personality.

A dark pair of skinny jeans
Nothing says snug like a pair of skinny jeans. They’re the ultimate weapon for winter – they keep your figure streamlined and slim, are ideal for layering and allow you to pile on the coats and jerseys on top, and even work well with ankle boots, thigh highs or even a pair of Ugg boots if you’re feeling inclined. Opt for a pair of dark skinny jeans as you’ll be able to get more uses out of them before washing; they’re also extremely versatile when it comes to putting together a look.
