Winter Wardrobe Staples


Winter is a never ending season - or that's what it feels like sometimes. I always think that winter should last for the lead up to Christmas and then once that's over with it can start to brighten up and the trees can start to blossom please. Unfortunately that's not the case and it's going to be cold for at least another two months yet, which calls for some staples to sneak their way into my wardrobe to help me see it out.








A chunky knit | I'm comfort over style every time and a chunky knit is my number one winter wardrobe staple. Recently I've been living (seriously, I have) in this blush pink one by Fashion Union and it's just the cosiest thing I've ever worn. It goes with anything too so you can dress it up or down depending on your mood or the occasion.

Black Trousers | I was gutted and kind of lost when my black Joni jeans got holes in them earlier this month (and pretty annoyed too actually seeing as I'd only had them for a year and I generally rely on Topshop for good quality jeans) so when I spied these black faux leather trousers in the Asos sale I hoped and prayed that they would fit and they did so there's me sorted until these ones get holes in them. Black trousers are such an unsung staple that you don't think about until you don't have any because they are just such a failsafe to throw on. 

Heeled boots | I pretty much wear nothing but boots in winter so my way of not getting stuck in a footwear rut is to wear heeled ones. They're flattering, they still keep your feet warm and dry and they look good. These ones are super old by Topshop but they go with everything so they're a staple!

A bobble hat | I love a good bobble hat in winter, not only because they look cute but obviously because they keep you warm! I love having one in my bag that I can put on if I've not dressed warm enough for the weather or if it gets suddenly nippy! I'm on a mission to find one with a bigger bobble than this though - preferably a furry one too!

  2. Love this outfit Amy, especially that pink sweater. I think all of the things are really good stapes too and most of my wardrobe is made up from these things too. Have a great day!

  5. Sounds like you and I have similar styles! This has been my go-to outfit all winter! I've tried to venture out and wear jeans less and I found some gorgeous black cotton joggers that go with everything in my wardrobe! And they're super comfy unlike skinny jeans can be! Those Topshop boots are gorgeous too!

  10. I have never been a jumper person but since starting sixth form, I've relied on them to keep me warm in winter classrooms with 0% heating. My favourite a are baggy oversized shapeless sweatshirts from new look. Fab fashion post www.lydia-eve.blogspot.co.uk xx

  14. Oh yes, I'm all for chunky knits during winter - they feel so cosy but can look really stylish (especially with tons of accessories!). 100% with you on heeled boots, by the way :)
