Five Wardrobe Essentials for Winter 2016 | NUMI

The winter months are already upon us, so we’ve come up with a short list of our must-have items to help you get through this upcoming winter.

The winter months are already upon us, and the temperature is slowly starting to drop so we’ve come up with a short list of our must-have items to help you get through this upcoming winter.

1. Midi Coat

A wool or fleece lined winter midi coat will keep you warm without looking too bulky this winter. Aside from keeping us warmer, they also allow for a lot of layering with and make for a classy piece that will never be out of style especially in a light grey, neutral or camel color. It’s a sophisticated streamlined look that layers beautifully over a cocktail dress or tailored trousers for work, but can just as easily dress up a pair of jeans for weekend wear. 

Wilfred, Marat Coat, $375

2. Black Skirt

Every woman knows that a little black dress is a wardrobe must, but a good black skirt is just as essential. First you need to find the right style of skirt that flatters your body type whether it’s a pencil skirt, a mini, midi or A-line, find what works best for your body. For the winter we like a soft leather (or faux leather!) skirt to pair with the rest of our winter wardrobe.

J.Crew, Faux Leather Pleated Mini, $128

3. Blanket Scarves

The blanket wrap scarf is a stylish and effortless addition to any winter. It’s a trend we can definitely get behind when the temperature starts to drop. These oversized scarves not only complete your winter look they also provide a ton of added warmth you’re your average smaller more delicate scarf just can’t provide. Another feature we love about these scarves is the countless ways you can style them from casually draping it over your shoulder or wrapping multiple layers around your neck.

Calvin Klein, Oversize Plaid Wool Scarf, $125

4. Ankle Commuter Boot

The ankle boot is such a versatile wardrobe item that works with pants or skirts, in both and fall winter months making it an absolute essential. Not only is the ankle boot versatile, and stylish, they’re also incredibly flattering on all body types. The wide fit around the ankle leaves room tucking in socks and pant legs without add extra bulk and elongating the leg. They’re also super comfortable, easily taking you from day to night.

Vince Camuto, Louise et Cie Crisscross-Buckle Bootie, $297

5. Cashmere Sweater

An easy addition to our list of wardrobe essentials. Who doesn’t love a good cozy sweater for the chilly winter months? And nothing compares to the softness of a luxe cashmere sweater. They can run on the more expensive side but they are truly investment pieces, as a good cashmere knit is more durable and long lasting than synthetic blends. It’s a timeless piece that can be dressed up for a day at the office paired with a pencil skirt and collared shirt underneath or dressed down for a casual weekend with cute skinny jeans and pair of ankle boots.

Sloane, Cashmere Sweater, $270
