Chillin’ in style

Winter is upon us and it’s time to bring out the sweaters, boots, mittens and coats. But when deciding on a winter wardrobe, see if any of these winter fashion staples are already in your closet.

One of the biggest must-haves for those dress days is knit tights. Unlike ordinary tights, which are shear and thin, knit tights are thick and will keep your legs warm, which makes wearing skirts and dresses all the more comfy in the winter months.

Another must-have is a wool coats. Last year, it was all about the pea coat, but this winter is all about wool. Many of these coats lay somewhere between pea coats and windbreakers, and are heavy enough for those snowy days, while still being stylish.

A winter staple for your shoe collection is knee-high boots. Sure, ankle boots are cute and combat boots were big in the fall, but it seems that this winter, the higher the better. Boots that hit right at the knee are simply timeless and complement almost any leg shape.

This last winter essential will shock you, but put those rules aside by wearing white. Pack away the colorful or patterned skinny jeans and get out those beautiful winter white pants you’ve been dying to wear, because now, white pants are in, and the myth about rocking white after Labor Day is out.

This time of year, sure it might be cold and dressing in layers is required, but it’s possible to still remain fashionable by incorporating these staples into the wardrobe.
