I rounded up a few closet staples for winter based on things I’ve loved for a long time and new additions to my wardrobe! I’ve said before that I don’t buy outfits, I buy pieces that can mix and match. I found that is the best way to get the most use out of my clothes.
Striped long sleeve tee – To me a striped tee or tank (or both!) is one of the most versatile options in my closet. I can wear it alone, with a statement necklace, with delicate jewelry, with leggings or denim. I can dress it up or down with my makeup and hair, and wear pretty much any pair of shoes that I want to. I can layer a poncho, vest, or a light jacket over top, too. It’s a step up from a plain tee but functions as a completely neutral basic in my mind.
open cardigan – I mention this open cardigan a lot because I get so much dang use out of it. The length is great and it’s perfectly casual for every day life.
bright winter jacket – This is a new addition this year and I love the bright orange-y/red color.
knee high boots – A classic, in my mind. And a rich brown shade can’t be beat.
simple bag – I don’t like changing out purses often, so a few good neutral choices that I can wear year round are perfect.
great jeans (also great!) – A great pair of jeans goes a long way in making me feel good about my outfit. I love that these are high waisted and don’t loosen up throughout the day, while still having some stretch to them.
leggings (similar) – I’d call these unbeatable because they are the only leggings I’ve found that don’t slide down during the day. If I could add up the money I’ve wasted on other leggings, I’d have a few pairs of these.
