And we’re back with the second half of our Winter Essentials round-up! Didn’t catch the first part of the list? Don’t fret, here’s the link. Our goal is to help you cleanse your closet and shop smarter this season, with a streamlined list of winter essentials to help guide you. These are effortless, non-boring basics that you can keep in rotation all season long. So without further ado, here’s part two of our top 10 list:
6. The Wide-Leg Jean
We usually reach for skinnies or boyfriend jeans but a great pair of wide-leg jeans are ideal for mixing things up this year. It’s a timeless silhouette that comes back into fashion time and time again thanks to its easy sophistication, especially in a darker wash.
7. The Nude Shoe
Neutral wedges complement everything in your closet—which is exactly why you should invest in a great pair. Choose a style that’s polished enough to work at the office, yet comfy enough to wear casually. Shown here is one of our favorites by Delman.
8. The Bold Sweater
You probably have a drawerful of plain-Jane, solid-color sweaters. Why not mix in a winter essential that will bring some eye-catching contrast to your look? This Jil Sander piece has an asymmetrical hem and a bold color-blocked design that’s just so cool.
9. The Cigarette Pant
Think jeans are the key to your wardrobe? Don’t underestimate the brilliance of a black cigarette pant—they will astound you with their versatility. As with denim, fit is key. Check the look standing up and sitting down. And don’t forget the back: you don’t want any sagging!
10. The Fitted Blazer
A simple, well-tailored blazer works day and night, and all year round. Pair it with a silky dress, a casual tee, a thin turtleneck… the list goes on forever. We chose a dark navy color to switch things up from basic black.
