Winter will be here before we know it. And not that we're rushing it because we're still definitely enjoying fall. Thing is, because not everyone knows how to seamlessly transition from fall to winter when it comes to the wardrobe, now is probably a good time to begin thinking about what we may want the transition to look like.
No fretting because I'm here to help by sharing just a few of the simplest transitional tips that I follow every fall to winter season and they get me together every single time.
And none of these tips reinvent the wheel, they're just a reminder of really easy things that can be done to seamlessly transition the closet to winter while maintaining a bit of style and spunk.
1. Gradually Add Layers
As the temperatures increasingly grow cooler, It's not always practical to go from not wearing a coat to a full on heavy overcoat. So sometimes just adding a few layers is all you'll need. Layers like vests, pullover sweaters, cardigans, blazers, tights & stockings can be all that's needed to add those extra elements of warmth to a look.
2. Invest in Essentials
Essentials will be specific to you and your style, but these will be the items you'll reach for regularly and wear the most, so over time they will begin to ware. For this reason investing in these items will be key. Investing doesn't have to necessarily mean spending a great deal of money. However, you'll want to take the time to select quality essentials that will hold up through the long winter months since they'll be worn over and over again.
3. Invest in Accent Pieces
As equally important as your essentials, accent pieces will become the lifeline for your outfits. These individual items unique to your personal style will give the extra boost that outfits may need to keep it interesting. These are the fun items we'll want to add and switch up from time to time so we don't give up on pulling a look together, especially during the brisk colder days ahead. Accents will also be key items to help with diversifying the look of the essentials we'll be wearing regularly.
I'd even go as far as to say that these should be whatever wardrobe elements you'd deem as mood boosters. Be it pops of color, prints, etc. Sometimes those dreary winter weather days can be overbearing so you'll need those accents to not only change things up a bit but to offer you a pick me up from time to time.
