With winter in full effect, staying warm and looking fresh without going over budget can be challenge. Here are five wardrobe essentials that you can wear as the weather transitions into the colder months. Layering pieces creatively will allow you to put together varied looks and keep you comfortable as the weather changes.
The classic cardigan never goes out of style. This year it ties into the new trend of softening your business look. Replace that suit jacket with a cardigan for an alternate business look. Wear it open with a soft cami or button-up for those windy days.
Your hemline doesn’t have to drop just because the temperature does. Pair your favorite mini with leggings or tights to create texture and warmth. You wear flats or boots depending on your mood or the weather.
Leggings are your transitional accessory. Because they are inexpensive, you can keep a couple of different colors on hand and pair with that mini skirt you still want to wear. You can stay cozy with leggings and any of your shorter hemlines. Wear them with your favorite slouchy suede boots.
The right pair will look good with or without leggings. Try a pair of sexy knee-highs with a short skirt. For a warmer look break out those leggings to create some texture and warmth.
The new accessory. Create even more texture or add contrast by pairing a vest with your favorite button down. Button up for business or wear unbuttoned with jeans on a night with your friends.
