When it comes to fashion, it can be hard to keep up with every season.  When you have to combine style with keeping up with the climate, it can start to feel like a puzzle that you have to piece together in order to make it all work together.

In winter, it’s all about the basics which will keep you warm but also stay on top of your fashion game.  Here are the basics that you should have in your fashion arsenal at all times in the winter months.

Accessories

Underneath your coat, you should still leave room for your artistic expression. That means buying accessories that make you feel like you aren’t just wearing clothes, but an entire look put together with all of the facets of your fashion taste.

Try to opt for things which don’t make you feel awkward or out of place from the rest of your ensemble.  Try basics like long necklaces, bracelets, or even headbands. Just one little extra touch may transform the entire look of your outfit.

Chunky Scarf

A chunky scarf is one of the winter must-haves which will never go out of style.  Not only is a big oversized scarf entirely practical, but it looks great with any outfit that you wear whether it’s a dress or a tattered pair of distressed jeans.

The nice thing about scarves is that you don’t have to pay a lot of money to find a good one.  Sometimes the best scarves you’ll ever own are under $20 and you can’t tell the difference from a $90 scarf you bought elsewhere.  You can throw it on and have a cozy winter look in the flash of an eye without any fuss.

Black Boots

Having a classic pair of winter boots will serve you well in the winter.  They will guard against cold weather and give you a classic look which can be dressed up or down, professional, or casual.

Make sure that you waterproof your boots so that you don’t ruin them the first time that you step out into rain or snow.  You may want to opt for leather over suede if you live in a particularly rainy and snowy area since it can destroy the texture quickly on suede surfaces.

A Beanie

There nothing like a cute winter beanie that says “winter is here!”  Not only will you keep your eyes and head warm, but you can run out of the house quickly without much effort towards your hair when you have the convenience of a beanie to throw on your head.

You can never have too many when it comes to winter hats.  So stock up on any and every color. They are a fun way to “winter-up”  your look instantly.
