4 Must Have Winter Fashion Essentials


Winter. I am definitely not the biggest fan. I can’t help it, I just don’t like being cold! These four essentials are the only things that keep me going through winter without falling into a fashion rut. These things actually make winter not seem so bad. Plus, they’re necessary and helpful to get you through the cold winter months.

– A Great Coat – 

When it’s cold outside, there’s no need to hide your cute outfit under a winter coat. There are a plethora of adorable coats out there to keep you toasty and still looking fashionable.

– Chunky Sweaters – 

Chunky sweaters are another great way to stay warm, but also still looking cute. Paired with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, they’re easy, comfortable, and you’ll definitely be getting compliments. I have a few chunky sweaters in my closet and I am constantly wearing them through winter dressed up and down.

– Scarves – 

Scarves are insanely practical when the winter wind is blowing, they also are a great accessory. I can’t even tell you how many times a scarf has completed an outfit for me in a perfect way by adding a little something extra.


– Sturdy Boots – 

Even though we don’t get much snow here in Memphis, having a good pair of boots is essential. The best part? They can still be fashionable! I practically live in my brown boots and beige booties in the winter. They keep me warm and I don’t have to worry about hobbling in heels over icy sidewalks.

What are your essential winter items?

  • I LOVE sweaters! I might wear a light coat and layer, but I am not a fan of big coats. I have TONS of scarves that I barely ever wear LOL. I get them because they are pretty and then wear them once in a while because I usually get too hot with one. I adore boots…well, shoes of most any kind really! I have a bit of a collection going on. =)

  • Chunky sweaters and boots are a must for me!

  • In Houston, Texas, where I live, it usually doesn’t get cold enough for a big coat. My essential is a nice, thick warm jacket. Yes, a jacket. Preferably a waterproof one. I have a nice black, waterproof Columbia jacket that I can cinch around the bottom (at my hips), and it zips up high around my neck. It’s all I need!
