I kind of have a love / hate relationship with winter. I HATE being cold, and I am completely over winter by the middle of January. But I really love the winter wear (shocker, I love the clothes, I know). I really love coats. In fact, when I was in high school, my mom told me I was not allowed to buy any more coats because they wouldn’t fit in the closet. Of course, then she wanted to steal them. I can’t get enough scarves! I wear a scarf almost every single day in the winter. I have SO many, but I just keep buying more. And there are so many cute sweaters! It is hard to pass up all the cute winter options out there.
So today I’ve got some of my top winter wear picks to heat up your wardrobe (and your body, ’cause it is cold).
How can you not want to load up on all of these cute pieces? I live in sweaters and scarves this time of year. I am really, really cold natured (like, I never take my coat off at work), so I really bundle up. The more layers, the better (you can read more about my love of layering here). So a cozy sweater and a cuddly scarf are always on my must have list. I’ve thought about wearing a hat too, but I think I would get made fun of even more than I already do. The other day someone asked if I was headed skiing.
And investing in a good coat is a great idea if you live somewhere that gets moderately cold. I got a red J. Crew coat several years ago that I love (similar to this one), and I wear it all of the time. It keeps me warm and it looks nice. Plus investing in a nice coat means that it will last for years. Of course a bright colored coat can help against those winter blues, but you can’t go wrong with a neutral either.
So tell me – what are some of your favorite winter pieces?
