Looking to fight the cold weather without sacrificing your fashion sense? I know precisely what you need. Below, you’ll find the topwinter wardrobe essentials you must have for a chic season.

Let’s say, hypothetically, that you need only a few essential pieces in your closet this winter. Mind you, I don’t mean you can have just a few items and nothing else (I’m not insane). I mean compile a seasonal collection of items that effortlessly syncs with your year-round go-to pieces—both to update your wardrobe and to give you layering options for the temperamental weather. Here are my favourite winter basics:

A Sophisticated Coat

Invest in an oversized coat to layer over all your looks this season. Perfect for work or the weekend, a chic coat is one of this season’s most versatile pieces.

Turtleneck Top
A turtleneck top will ensure that your neck is nice and snug all winter long! This style looks good with anything whether it be paired with a sleeveless dress or simply worn on its own with jeans.

A Ladylike Midi Dress

Just because it’s cold  outside doesn’t mean you should forgot your favourite dresses this season. Just opt for one with long sleeves and a midi-length hemline to give more coverage without skimping on feminine elegance.

Leather Jacket
A warm leather jacket is crucial for every winter wardrobe and adds instant edge and coolness to any outfit. Toss it over your jeans and tee on the weekend or blouse and pants for the night, this jacket has the power to transform any winter outfit and looks effortlessly stylish.

Versatile Sweater 

Nothing says off-duty chic like a warm crewneck sweater. Opt for one from cashmire or another high quality wool and you’ll look great in every ocasion. You could combine it with a collared shirt protruding from underneath and goes with everything including midi skirts, jeans, printed trousers and leather pants.

Wrap Scarf

The blanket wrap scarf is a chic and effortless addition to any winter outfit and the bigger, the better! There are countless ways to style this cold weather accessory, either thrown carelessly over your shoulder or wrapped around multiple times.

Wool Pants

The classical soft wool pants is your perfect partner for every ocasion this winter. You could combine it with every of the items mentioned above. During the day you can wear it with turtleneck or sweater, in the office –  with an elegant blazer or a shirt and in the eveening – with a light silk blouse. The combination between wool and silk is one of my favourite for the season and I strongly recomend you to try it!

 High Boots

Warm and chic – the perfect winter combination! Over the knee boots can be dressed down with loose trausers and a jumper for a casual daytime look or glammed up with a midi skirt or mini dress at night. As we all know, tall boots serve two purposes in the  winter season: to give us extra coverage (especially when we opt for a miniskirt) and to add a dose of sex appeal to your look.
