a pop of red will chase those monday blues away in no time. but today’s post is about five classic winter staples i reach for again and again. the beauty of classic style is that many items that make up the bulk of our wardrobe never go out of style. they’re dazzlingly simple allowing you to shop your own wardrobe day after day.
what’s better on a cold winter day than a cashmere turtleneck? unless it’s a red turtleneck that brightens any gloomy day. skinny jeans were once thought to be trendy. every year we waited with bated breath to see if this trend would disappear. it looks as if we’re still waiting. skinny jeans are now considered a classic. one reason i love skinny jeans is they easily tuck inside boots. and we all know boots are a must-have essential on a cold winter day (they keep our tootsies warm and dry). especially if snow is involved. navigating snow banks in heels is next to impossible! today i’m sporting a pair of riding boots that are a great example of a classic wardrobe staple.
a warm winter layer sans the bulk is a puffer vest (similar here and here). if the weather is mild wear a vest in lieu of a coat or jacket. if it’s bitterly, cold puffer vests keep you warm and toasty while lounging inside. and they amp up the volume on a simple outfit. don’t forget they look terrific with skirts.
last but not least my fifth classic winter essential is a pair of sunglasses. that’s right. sunglasses are important to wear all year long. those harmful UV rays are still a danger in winter. and sunglasses offer protection against cold winds.
well, gang, monday has arrived once again. make it a good one!
