These Items In My Wardrobe Help Me Through Cold Winter Days | Essentials: Winter

Layers, layers and even more layers. Yes, winter is all about layering, especially when you want to stay warm. Even though I am not a really big fan of winter, I am a sweater weather kind of girl. If I could, I would wear sweaters every single day. But besides sweaters, I also have a couple of other trendy winter essentials for this winter. Curious about them?

Black Lace Top: H&M

┆ Lace Details ┆

Is it just me or does lace, especially white lace, kind of remind me of snowflakes? That’s why I think clothing items with lace detailing are a winter essential. Since you’ll mostly see me wear dark colors, I think all colored lace are acceptable. For winter you might think a lace top like this is way too cold but I would definitely wear it with my velvet blazer. This also makes it a lot more ‘fancy’ and it’s warm enough.

┆ Checked Trousers ┆

I have been seeing checked trousers everywhere lately. The pair I own are stretchy, which makes them really comfortable. I hear you thinking: “How do I wear the checked trousers?” Well, I simply just pair the checked trousers with a basic white shirt (maybe with a saying on it), a teddy coat (or black blazer) and some white sneakers. That’s a very simple outfit but since the checked trousers are very ‘out there’ you won’t need to wear anything crazy with it.

Checked Trousers: ONLY | Blue Sweater: H&M

┆ Blue Colors ┆

For me winter is all about the blue colors. Maybe it’s because I associate winter with cold, which means blue. Anyways, I normally only wear dark colors, but this winter I’ve been wearing all types of blue colors, especially this blue sweater from H&M. The blue color of this sweater isn’t very bright but also not too dark. I just love this color. Besides that, the sweaters from H&M are very comfy and available in so many different colors. I have this exact sweater in grey, pink, color block and blue.

Dr. Martens Look-A-Like Boots: FOLC | Glitter Socks: Hema

┆ Boots ┆

Winter season isn’t complete without a good pair of boots. I hate the feeling of my ankles being cold because it will make me feel cold all over my body. That’s why I wear a pair of boots every day during winter. Boots cover my ankles and will keep my feet warm the whole day. My favorite boots to wear at the moment are my Dr. Martens look-a-like boots. I have been wearing them in my latest outfit posts so you might have seen them before…

┆ Glitter Socks ┆

I know, I know the holidays are over. But it’s always fun to wear some glitter, am I right? A glitter sweater, shirt or a pair of trousers might be a little much but I think glitter socks are really fun to wear. For example, throw on a pair of boots, make sure to tuck your jeans in the boots, put the socks over the jeans and let the socks peak out a little bit at the top of your boots. A sparkly touch to your outfit!

Besides the items I mention above, I also can’t go anywhere without my teddy coat, knit hat and thick scarf, which I am also wearing in this outfit post. I just can’t handle being cold all the time and these items keep me warm and stylish at the same time haha. It has been snowing some days here so I am hoping I can make some photos in a pretty snowy winter wonderland as well… Fingers crossed! What’s your ultimate winter essential? What do you think of mine?
