floortjeloves, 5 winter essentials, winter essentials, knee boots, stuart weitzman, gucci, comma, ginger, leather pants, leather trousers

Winter is coming so it’s time to get those sweater out of the boxes and hang your warm coats on a graspable place. Last week it has been below 10 degrees and even the first snow fell in Europe. While everybody is complaining about the cold (because that’s what the Dutch like to do; complaining), I belong to this small group of people that actually has a smile from ear to ear when it gets colder. I can’t explain in words how happy I am that it is finally getting winter. Candles everywhere around your home, bundled up in warm blankets on the couch, hot chocolate in our hands and or course the fashion! Today I want to share my absolute 5 winter essentials with you, which I think everybody should have this season. Continue reading to discover which and why and I promise you, you will get excited too!

1.  OVERSIZED COATS

I am this type of person that has a coat rack as full as a whole family should have it. I love coats. They can just give this chicness to your look and can upgrade (or downgrade) any outfit. The coat for this season is definitely an oversized one. It has to go over the butt and need big lapels so you can feel extra cozy. I absolutely fell in love with this printed woolen coat from Comma, which you can wear both very casual or chic. Multi functional you can say!

2. KNEE BOOTS

I talked about them for at least 5 minutes in my designer shoe haul video, as I honestly think every woman should own a pair. Yes, I am talking about the knee boots. They’re sexy, make your legs look taller and slimmer and are nice with any kind of outfit. Wear them with a skirt or dress with some knee socks or big tights underneath, or wear them with a skinny jeans or leather pants – like I did today. My favorite brand for knee boots is Stuart Weitzman, but there are many more affordable brands out there. If you search long enough I am sure you will find your dream pair for this winter.

3. COZY SWEATERS

I have an addicted with anything wool and even more cashmere. Even though I already have some beautiful knits in my wardrobe, I keep on searching for that perfect warm and cozy sweater. Often I like them to be a combination between casual and chic, but also a funky color is something I am still searching for. Today I chose for the first, casual-chic in a soft grey color, also from Comma. Easy to combine and oh so winter ready!

4. BURGUNDY

Think I never used this word more often than this season, because burgundy is really hot! It has to be my favorite fall/winter color at this moment. This deep red color is not only a very rich color – which gives an instant chic touch to any look – it’s also easy to combine and fits every type of person. So no matter if you are blonde, red or dark, burgundy will look beautiful on you. If you find it hard to implement this color in your outfits, than start safe and begin with accessories or shoes. In this way you’re still on trend while feeling comfortable with your look!

5. LEATHER

This is not particularly a trend right now, cause to me it’s always a trend (same as the sweater by the way). I am talking about leather. If there is something else I am always craving for, it will be a well fitted leather pants or jacket. I know, these are quite some investments, but they last a life time. My tip to you is to keep an eye on the sales. I never bought any of my leather pants full priced, which makes it one of the best investments to me. And no worries if you don’t want to wear real leather, cause stores like Zara have really beautiful faux leather items for a good price as well!

    Such a great outfit, girl! And a wonderful post. Love all the essentials, you’ve picked up. I adore the oversized coats and the leather pants, but here in Berlin, it’s so freaking cold at the moment – when you go outside you can’t even think properly. I’d love to have my Frankfurt weather back, it was so warm and enjoyable during the winter, with all the cosy sweaters and coats.

    Burgundy is one of my favourite colours for the Winter, and I love OTK boots (but I need to find some like yours with ties as the pair I have keeps falling down!).

    Great outfit and all the colours compliment each other. I thought it was just me, but this is actually my favourite time of the year and I always have this smile on my face when i’m out with this long feeling of nostalgia. Glad to know that you feel the same way too. And the boots are a steal.!!!
