Changing the wardrobe over from summer to winter is always exciting, and it is always curious to see how it will go. If you are like most people, you probably find that this process can be surprisingly difficult to do with any kind of assuredness. The truth is, nobody ever knows quite how it is going to go until it is time to do it, at which point it’s a bit of a free-for-all. But if you are looking to have a bit more order than chaos this year in your wardrobe change, you might want to focus on a few key areas. As long as you have the following sorted, you can be sure that you are on the right path to a wonderful winter wardrobe.
A Good Coat
It doesn’t matter whether it’s Dickies coats or one you have had stashed away for years – either way, you need to have one. Clearly, nobody can survive the winter without at least one good coat, but it’s not just about keeping warm in this case. You need to choose your coat carefully, as it has to be something that you can imagine going with most of your outfits. This can be hard to achieve, but with a little focus on color matching it should be made a little simpler. Similarly, you might want to look into spending some real time finding a coat which is as comfortable as possible, as in winter this suddenly takes a front seat, even in front of fashion at times. One good coat, and you will feel ready to tackle the colder months of the year.
It seems fair to say that there is nothing wrong with having a good selection of scarves to work with. As long as you have several to choose between, you can be sure that you have one for all of your winter outfits. Of course, these also serve the dual purpose of being useful accessories for tying in the colors and motifs of your chosen coat to whatever outfit you happen to be wearing each day. The moment you start to look at the scarf as an accessory in this way, you can start to see just how powerful it really can be. Make sure you are happy with your scarf collection, and you will be much more in the mood for the season ahead.
Boots & More Boots
What would winter be without a good focus on boots? Everyone has their own distinct taste in boots, but nonetheless, everyone agrees that they are essential for the winter. You might personally have a preference for pixie boots, walking or hiking boots or even knee-high beauties – whatever it is, make sure you are stocked up in time for that first frost. There’s a great feeling in being able to get your boots out for the first time in the year, so make sure you are not behind enough to miss that moment.
