With Winter in full swing the only way to beat it is to invest in good quality Winter Wardrobe Essentials and get very good at layering. I must admit, I really do love Winter Fashion. I’ve compiled 10 essentials for a fabulous fall wardrobe. For me, winter is all about quality fabrics and layering. These are the key pieces I definitely couldn’t get through winter without…

The Perfect Coat

A stylish outerwear is the first thing we all hurry to invest in as the cold months arrive, and while trends come and go a classic coat is always there to bundle you up in style.  Whether you love long or oversized coats, monochrome or checkered options, capes, pea coats or ones with military influences, go for the best options that flatter your figure and put the focus on your personal style.  A statement-making coat can be the core of almost all your winter looks, and the way you style it can certainly help you create various styles and moods.

Jeans, Jeans, Jeans!

If in summer it’s all about the perfect pair of denim shorts, I love the winter months for it lets us wear our favorite jeans. Skinny, high-waisted, bell-bottom or vintage, jeans are really timeless and we can hardly imagine the fashion world without them. It’s their practicality, versatility and ultimate wearability that makes us adore jeans. Well, and of course we all know how to wear jeans, since they have no basic rules and you can be as creative and innovative as you can!

Leather Pants

They are edgy, sexy and cool and can be mixed and matched with various tops for creating one-of-a-kind looks.  I couldn’t live without leather leggings or leather pants. They’re so versatile and they keep you really warm. Plus it can be worn casually during the day or dressed up for evening.  Pay attention to the colour and the form of the leather pants you choose, picking the best options for your own body shape. 

Chunky Knit Sweater

Good quality knits should make up a significant portion of your winter wardrobe. Fine knits are perfect for layering underneath blazers, coats and even dresses while chunkier knit sweaters are great for throwing on over your casual outfits. Choose them in colours and cuts that best suit your personal style.

The Gilet

The winter Gilet, your new wardrobe essential. This luxe layering piece adds texture to any look. The great thing about a gilet is its versatility as a piece of clothing. You can wear just about anything underneath a gilet. Work it with sleeveless tops and jeans, then pop it over knitwear when the chill sets in. The gilet works great as both an outer layer and a mid-layer to be worn under a jacket or a coat.

Ankle Boots
A winter must-have. You can do whatever heel you want whether it’s a flat or a high heel but definitely ankle boots. We can never underestimate the power of a stylish pair of boots, which can spice up even the dullest winter looks. They can elongate the legs of petite women and when it comes to the possible stylish combinations created with them, you have endless options to choose from. Ankle boots look cool with any types of pants, skirts, dresses and coats, so why not get a pair?

A Knit Sweater dress
Just like the knit sweaters, knit sweater dresses are also among the best winter wardrobe essentials that every woman needs to get. There are days when you are not into layering and mix and matching tops and bottoms, so slipping into a relaxed knit sweater dress. Wear it with ankle or knee-high boots, pick a scarf to add lots of personality to your look and don’t forget the coat when you walk out the door!

A pair of stockings

Thick tights or stockings are perfect for wearing with dress or a skirt in winter, there’s nothing better than stockings to complete your look and keep you a little bit away from the cold. So buy a pair of stocking this season to gloss up your look and wear the clothes that you want!

A Bright, Printed Scarf
Whether you choose a classic leopard printed scarf or one adorned with abstract motifs, you definitely need this stylish accessory for styling your winter looks. It’ll keep your neck warm, while brightening up even the most boring looks and taking your styling skills to a whole new level. 


Beanies and hats are a necessity for keeping your head toasty warm in winter. There are plenty of different styles of beanies available, from fitted to slouchy styles and simple to novelty designs. I find that a basic black or grey beanie that can be folded to sit firmly on the head or worn slouchy and pushed back is a versatile wardrobe option.
