As the weather starts getting colder and colder, we all want our wardrobes to reflect that and not only keep us warm but preferably, still look stylish. I have a few chilly weather essentials that I love and cherish when the temperatures begin to drop.
A trusty satchel; In the colder months we ladies tend to carry more things with us than usual (if thats even possible). Gloves, hat, camera, Vogue, pashmina… an entire extra outfit. So you need a handbag that can carry it all for you and also add something to your look. I love satchels because they have that classic old school look, they are structured and keep your belongings safe and usually have lots of nifty pockets. Practical! This one of my mine is vintage but I love this one and this one too.
A cosy knit in a fun pattern; Knitwear is the best part of fall/winter, it acts like mini blanket you can take out into the cold with you. To keep it fun, pick a sweater or cardigan that has an interesting pattern woven into it. Shape is also very important, to keep you from drowning in wool, pick a wrap cardigan with a longer length give a feminine silhouette. This one is from Karmaloop and it’s been my favorite one of the season, I wear it all the time.
With day time looks I wear a vintage statement necklace or a fun ring like this one, to add a little glamour and sparkle.
Adventure Boots; The kind of boots that promote a fun spontaneous day rather than prevent it. Trust me, I am obsessed with high heel boots and cute wedge booties too. But sometimes, especially when its cold out and the streets may be wet, you need some boots that you can run around in/ dance in the rain.
These contest suede and leather combat boots are also from Karmaloop and they have already seen me through many fun walks and jumped int he biggest pile of leaves!
