5 Essential Winter Wardrobe Staples


The days are getting shorter, temperatures are dropping, winter is in full swing. If you haven’t done so yet, it is definitely time to prepare your closet for these cooler winter days. These are five items that will keep you looking sharp and staying warm all season long.

Shearling Details

In recent years, textured collars have been making a comeback in both men’s and women’s fashion. Ranging from shearling to boiled wool to sherpa, you will see a lot of these details this winter season. The timeless combination of shearling and suede will make sure you look effortlessly on trend.

Vest Versatility

On warmer days when your winter coat feels too bulky, you may want to consider a quilted or down vest. Vests look stylish when paired with almost anything, a hooded sweatshirt, cable knit sweater, or even a crewneck sweatshirt. Vests are ideal for days when you will be moving around a lot or those when you just don’t want to lug your big coat around.

Timeless Leather

Look classically cool this winter in a leather jacket. Whether real or faux, leather jackets are a great winter option because they keep the cold air out. Layer over a heavy sweater or fleece hoodie. You don’t have to compromise on style to stay warm this season.

Military Inspired

The military trend is not going away anytime soon. Double breasted jackets and coats have been very trendy over the past few years. If you are looking for a super polished look with minimal effort, this is the look for you.

The Statement Coat

It can be tempting to dress as gray as the winter sky. Just because it is winter does not mean you cannot have fun with your wardrobe. The Ombre Coat from Zara is a great example. This coat is neutral yet masculine, because of the ombre detailing. Be on the lookout for coats that can be thrown on and do all of the talking.
