Best Items of Clothing for Winter
As the weather starts to get cooler and the transition from autumn to winter begins, we need to make some adjustments to our wardrobe to fend off the cold. Now that you can’t rely on jeans and a t-shirt before you leave the house, here are the items you need to stay warm for winter.
A wool coat is a hard-working item of clothing in your winter wardrobe – it’s smart enough to be worn with work attire while casual enough to be worn with jeans and boots, plus it is sure to last for decades if you look after it well. Choose a neutral colour such as black, navy or camel so it stands the test of time and will work with more outfits.
Long-Sleeved Layering T-Shirt
Long-sleeved tees are available in a range of colours and fabrics and can be plain or decorated with graphics and text. Long-sleeved tees are the layering items which you’ll turn to time and time again as the weather turns colder, as they can be worn on their own or under jumpers and jackets for added warmth. Picking a long-sleeved t-shirt in a bright colour and letting the hem stick out from underneath a neutral wool jumper or sweatshirt is a great way of brightening up an outfit without it becoming too garish.
A cosy, fleece-lined sweatshirt is a great item to throw on when you’re feeling the chill. Paired up with jeans or trousers, it adds a modern touch to your outfit and is the perfect way to make an otherwise boring outfit look more casual and cosier. You can either stick to a monochrome palette or go bold with cheerful colours or a nice printed hoodie to brighten up the look.
Scarf and Hat
A winter outfit isn’t complete without a scarf and a hat to keep your head and neck warm. From skinny scarfs which can be knotted chicly once around the neck to larger ones which can be layered up, scarves are a great accessory to have in your arsenal. They’re also relatively inexpensive, so you can build up a collection of plain and patterned ones, as well as neutral or bold hats, to work with any type of outfit for added versatility.
Trousers are an obvious choice in winter to keep your legs warm but the material you choose makes all the difference. When the cold snap hits, denim is a great option that is durable, thick enough to brace cold winds and works with virtually any type of outfit, whether you’re dressing up or dressing down. What’s more, there are styles to suit every silhouette so they’re a versatile piece that everyone should have in their clothing collection.
Sometimes, you need to throw on an extra layer throughout the day and a cardigan is the ideal item of clothing to reach for. They’re cosy, easy to add to an outfit and are available in a range of materials to suit your preference and style.
