Winter Essentials

By  |  0 Comments

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and keeping nice and warm! It has been a really icy lately, but when the mercury drops, your sense of style doesn’t have to go with it. Two years ago I found myself wearing long boots almost every winter day that it was cold. This year I have worn my over-the-knee boots just once. I have figured out how to stay stylish and warm at the same time and I want to share my winter essentials with you.

WE Ankle Boots

To update the basic long boot, why not go for an ankle boot. Ankle boots will give your look a more modern feel, and are just as warm!

I’m also loving chunkier heeled boots this winter…

When you’re wearing ankle boots, you need to make sure you pair them with skinny pants. I either go for an ankle grazer style or roll mine up slightly so you can see a hint of skin. Obviously when it’s really chilly I tuck them inside my boots. Super skinny pants are great for showing off your shape (winter fashion can be a little bulky) and are fab for when you want to wear them inside your boots.

So you know the golden rule right? If you wear leggings or pants without a zip, you need to wear a longer length top. I love neutral, long-sleeved basic tops because you can wear them under everything and on their own. Wear them under a checked shirt, a denim shirt or a leather jacket. You can never have too many!

WE Statement Coat

To round your outfit off you need a beautiful coat. Even if you are wearing a blouse and a blazer (which might be too bulky for the sleeves of your coat), simply wear your coat draped across your shoulders. That way, you can keep warm and look stylish at the same time. You can go for a bold pop of colour, or stay neutral. I love black and white and grey and almost a rose gold shade of coat because you can do so much with them.

So there you go, lovelies! With a cupboard full of the right basics, getting dressed each morning should be a pleasure. Stay warm and stylish.
