Winter is a very special season. The days are dark, cold and short. It is a time that we cannot be too adventurous with our fashion style. When we dress during wintertime, the most important element we look into is keeping our body warm. No one wants to fall sick because they ignore the cold and did not put on enough warm clothes.
Unfortunately, while some people take the warming up aspect serious, they forget to dress to look good as well. They feel the winter is the wrong time to do that. But while we can truly not be so adventurous with our style, there are actually ways to spice it up.
So, here are the 5 things you should have in your winter wardrobe this year to warm yourself up and equally make your fashion style inspiring and not drab.
This one is one fashion item one cannot do without during the winter season. Apart from the fact that they are warm (yes, you should always go for the warm ones), they can really help you change the way you dress during wintertime. You can wear them under your pants, skirts and dresses. And you can even put on short and mini clothes that you would normally wear during summer, spring or autumn.

They come in different colours, designs and shape. So, you can easily get the right ones to suit your work or outing and remain stylish.
While you should love your high-heeled boots because they can make you look taller and feminine, a good flat boot should be one of your essential winter wardrobe pieces. Without some good flat boots, your winter wardrobe would be incomplete. Why? Because they are comfortable! You can walk in them all day long without making your legs uncomfortable. And most importantly, wearing high-heeled shoes, especially on very snowy days can be dangerous. If you have seen people fall flat and break their back or some other vital part of their body, you would understand what i am talking about. Very risky!
I’m not trying to say putting on flat boots will prevent you from falling. No, it’s far from that. Sometimes, the ground can be really slippery that you can end up falling, no matter the type of shoes you’re putting. But one thing is sure, if you do fall with flat boots, the damage will be likely less than if they were high.
And I’m not the only one that thinks that way. In an article on “the 10 rules of winter dressing,” the UK Guardian fashion editor, Jess Cartner-Morley, emphasised the importance of owning flat boots for the winter and wondered why it took her so long to know that. Jess wrote, “I just don’t really understand how it has taken me two decades of adult life to realise that footwear I can wear outside, in winter weather, without risking either frostbite or a slipped disc is a really good idea”
So, if you love your body and wants it to remain so, when it comes to choosing winter shoes, the fear of falling and ending up with some broken ribs, should be the determining factor for your choices.
No winter wardrobe would be complete without this piece of fashion apparel. To keep your neck warm, you need to always have one ready for the season. I have a huge preference for scarves that are not too big but can provide a great amount of warmth. They also need to be soft and very comfy on the skin. It should be one of your most important fashion pieces. You should never go through the winter without one.
Long Fitted Coat
Just because the winter months are dull does not mean you should allow your fashion style to be plain, ordinary and boring. To bring some life and spice to your winter fashion style, you should never miss a long fitted coat. This is because, with a long coat, you can still put on skirts and dresses and keep yourself warm. And if you like to show off that gorgeous and feminine shape of yours during the winter, you would definitely need a fitted long coat.
Some days will be just too cold that you cannot avoid wearing some soft warm sweaters. As a result, this should be a must-have apparel in your my winter wardrobe. It is a good idea to have them in different thickness. This is to make sure you can layer them on very cold days (Some days are so cold that you’ll need two to three sweaters to feel warm ).
