4 staples to get your wardrobe winter ready
22nd November 2016
Is your winter wardrobe feeling a little lacklustre? Missing some staple items that it desperately needs to stay on trend especially during the cold snap? Fear not, here are the four things you really need to add to your winter wishlist:
A statement coat
It’s safe to say you’re going to need a jacket this winter with that polar vortex on its way and all, so ensure yours is a statement coat you can wear with anything. The Superdry men’s jackets range is a good place to start, they’ve added even more lines this year with everything from on trend bombers to warm parkas to choose from. A fur lined hood is definitely on trend for 2016/2017, and if you’re looking for something that’s going to see you through to spring choose a longer shape that covers the hips to ensure warmth and comfort.
To see you through everything from icy pavements to slushy paths, a sturdy pair of ankle boots with gripping soles are an essential wardrobe staple for winter. Avoid suede if you don’t fancy cleaning your shoes every week and opt for leather look styles that offer some waterproof protection. You can’t go wrong with a pair of Chelsea Boots – no matter the shade you choose, it will look good with anything.
A knitted jumper
Pick up a relatively plain jumper design – or, you know, go wild and choose something with a fun slogan or reindeers on for the festive months – then pair this with everything from skinny jeans and a t-shirt for casual days spent with mates to your smart trousers and a collared shirt for work. The knitted jumper is a versatile, staple piece that works for a great deal of occasions. Opt for a high quality jumper though, these things bobble easily if they’re made from cheaper fabric and a staple piece needs to be an investment buy. Fashion Beans has a great round up to choose from.
A chunky scarf
Scarves can make or break an outfit but this winter bigger is definitely better. We’re not talking Lenny Kravitz style, but something chunky and knitted that you can wear over that statement jacket to stay warm is the perfect staple piece for your winter wardrobe. Keep an eye out for blanket scarves on the high street, perfect for draping over your shoulder and they work with all the staple pieces listed above.
Grab one of each of these four items and you’ll be well on your way to a winter wardrobe that ticks all the style boxes.
