5 classic winter staples

a pop of red will chase those winter 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 and simple, allowing you to shop your own wardrobe day after day.

1. turtleneck

i’ve been all about the turtlenecks this season.  can.not.stress.that.enough.  after all, what’s better on a cold winter day than a cashmere turtleneck? unless it’s a red cashmere turtleneck that brightens any gloomy day.

2. skinny jeans

skinny jeans were once thought to be trendy.  every year, we waited with bated breath to see if this trend would disappear.  what year are we on now, 10? 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 (similar) boots.

3. boots

and we all know (similar) 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 (similar) riding boots that are a great example of a classic wardrobe staple.

4. puffer vest or jacket

a warm winter layer sans the bulk is a (similar) puffer vest. if the weather is mild wear a vest in lieu of a coat or jacket. if it’s bitterly cold, (similar) 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.

5. sunglasses 

last but not least, my fifth classic winter essential is a pair of (similar) sunglasses. that’s right. (similar) sunglasses are important to wear all year long. those harmful UV rays are still a danger in winter. and (similar) sunglasses offer protection against cold winds.

    • nope, the haircut is from last year when the post was originally published. we dust them off from time to time. but you can’t beat a pair of blue jeans from Talbots!

    What a great true red! Looks bright and colorful. I remember the year those boots came out at Talbots and I almost purchased them but decided I didn’t need them. I liked them a lot. They’re tried and true. I’m very good about always wearing sunglasses–my eyes tend to be very sensitive to light so I always wear them out–I really need them. My boyfriend never ever wears them. (I also worry about macular degeneration.) Nice combination here. Happy almost-Friday!
