10 Winter 2017 Wardrobe Essentials You Must Have

January is here and inevitably, we are heading into the thick of winter. This winter is set to be one of the worst in years (although they do say that every year, don't they?!) and if there is one season you need to prep your wardrobe for, this is it. Despite little chance of snow or any sort of polar vortexes, fog and chilly weather is coming our way even more so and there are a few things you need to have in your closet to get you through this time. I don't know about you, but I'd rather be really hot than at any moment feel cold so I am prepared! With this in mind I've picked my 10 winter wardrobe essentials that will cover all bases. And no, I'm not just talking about coats and knitwear because that'd be too easy. I am also adding a few chic ideas because yes you can look good and warm during winter too!

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 
1. Let's get the obvious out the way; a Wrap Coat for a preppy approach to outwear and to literally wrap yourself in. I am in love with this Ted Baker one and one tip when buying coat is to always look at the percentage of wool in the garment. The higher the percentage, the warmer your coat will be!

2. Work wear in the winter is a tough one, but pair thick tights with a flowy Pleated Midi Skirt and you are ready for business, pun intended. Pleats have been very popular this season and I don't see it going anywhere any time soon! 

3. Roll necks, Turtlenecks or however you want to call them is a layering classic and works under just about anything. I've been obsessed with wearing them under slip dresses, coats and even on their own with a skirt or pants.

4. A sleek pair of Leather Pants will replace your jeans and instantly add chic to your outfit. For ideas on how to style one check out my latest outfit post: Black & White Classic.

5. What is winter without a bit of faux fur! A Faux Fur Jacket adds polish to any look not to mention it will keep you toasty for a night out in the town. 

6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10
6. Moving onto bed time, Flannel Pyjamas are my addiction and obviously a serious must for this list. Just imagine those nights in cozying up by the fire, cup of hot chocolate in one hand and TV remote control in the other. I need these Cath Kidston pjs in my life! 

7. And if the pyjamas aren't enough to keep you warm, a nice Bathrobe to bundle up in! These will also make stepping out of the shower so much easier.

8. I am a beanie lover and if you follow me on Instagram you will see me wearing one in almost all shots I have taken this winter so far. A loose Beanie keeps my ears covered from the ghastly winter winds and better yet, it does not leave me with hat head! 

9. #Selfie ready Gloves! These are genius, not only very pretty and by the looks of it extremely warm, they are made with touch screen technology which means no freezing hands if the phone rings or if you want to take that cheeky selfie on the go. In my birthday wishlist it goes!

10. And finally, an impossibly large scarf aka a Blanket Scarf, preferably in a bold colour like this mustard one to wear everyday and to add a bit of colour to the outfit because if you're anything like me, winter means black all day every day. 

What are your wardrobe essentials this season? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties and wishing you a happy Monday despite the London tube strike! 
Be safe out there!

  15. That's so true, to beat the winter we need very good and warm clothes (and yes, "they" say that every year, "this will be the coldest year!" :) I love turtle necks, faux fur coats, blanket scarves, beanies, gloves, tights, so many things that help to keep us warm! I really loved the selection! Hope you have a great week!
