Two Winter Staples Every Girl Needs
There’s something really wonderful about putting on an outfit that is comfortable, yet very well put together. Those are the outfits that give me the most confidence as opposed to a dress or skirt that may look great, but is miserable to wear when your food baby can’t breathe. Ya feel me? I would have to say my ideal style would be a “smart-casual” look because I strive to always be comfortable, but not in a lazy way. That’s what Sundays are for. Recently, I’ve been drawn toward adding luxury, staple pieces to my wardrobe as opposed to impulse online purchases.
Both of these pieces are incredibly versatile in that I could wear them with many different outfits and for several months spanning through late fall and winter. The best part is knowing that both jackets will last me a really long time or until I inevitably get bored of them, which I can’t see happening anytime soon. I’ve been wanting to purchase a tweed style jacket since my college days and finally found the perfect one. The multi-tonal blend of the fabric is just too pretty! This one has a richly-woven feel and I love the asymmetrical front.

The second winter staple I’ve been getting maybe too much wear out of lately is my bomber jacket. It’s been my go-to everyday jacket because I can wear it with just about any outfit whether I have on a casual dress or ripped skinny jeans. I often wear it out on the weekends to brunch with friends and to the office during the week. Basically what I’m trying to say is…it gets a lot of love.
The bomber jacket is actually an American military jacket that was developed in the mid-1950s. And like many other trends in fashion, it has experienced a major comeback in the past few years. It may not be everyone’s favorite because it definitely can be an acquired taste, but I really love the look it gives any outfit. And on top of that, its quilted insulation keep me so snug during these cold weather months.
Another item in my wardrobe that’s been getting a ton of wear is my sleeveless roll-neck sweater. It can be tricky to wear during the winter at times because it’s obviously sleeveless and I’m not trying to freeze, but that’s where my bomber jacket comes into play. I often pair the sweater with leggings or my blue ripped Topshop jeans and call it a day. Which winter staple do you prefer?
