{Fashion Monday} 5 must have Winter Fashion Items

Half way through January 2018 and it’s freezing cold, here are 5 must have winter fashion items in your wardrobe.

Winter Fashion items
It’s weird to think we are already half way through the month when it literally just started it. Not sure if it feels the same for everyone but it does feel like 2018 is moving a little too fast. The cold weather isn’t helping because most of us are stuck indoors trying to stay warm and finishing up the cakes. I have somehow found my love of cooking and baking again and been cooking and baking up a storm. By the time spring will be coming along I think I will be weighing as much as my house. But that’s usually what happens isn’t it, we comfort eat during the winter and hibernate resulting in big bellies.

{Fashion Monday} 5 Must Have Winter Fashion Items

Every winter there are 5 must have winter fashion items that I ensure to have in my wardrobe. As a summer baby I can’t deal with the cold and to be honest I don’t like being cold one bit. I may not be good at buying winter clothes but I do have the essentials that keep me going winter after winter.

Knee high boots

Winter in the UK is practically year round and often I have my boots on the ready because you never know. I have a couple of knee-high boots that I love and my latest purchase is from JD Williams. These are my first from them but I love how they fit perfectly and be wearing them ever daily.

Winter cardigan

I have a number of cardigans but none warmer than the one I got from the Sweater Shop, an Irish knit wear company. It has been my go to sweater since I got it, it’s warm and snugly and I can’t get enough of it. I think everyone should have a sweater like this to keep you warm especially as the temperatures drop. Often I wear it when I don’t want to turn the heating on at home.

Thermal Christmas Socks

I have had these socks for 4 Christmas now, they are one of these best socks I have ever had. Back then I didn’t think I would wear them past Christmas but 4 years on I wear them along with my sweater to keep myself warm. It’s alarming how expensive the gas bill is during winter so I often don’t switch my heating on until a few hours before bed. The socks are thermal and totally keep me warm and since I have cold feet I wear them to bed too.

Scarf 🧣

Traveling to Prague last weekend I appreciated my blanket scarf even more so than ever before. I have scarves of all shapes, sizes and in multiple colours which I wear daily. Scarves are a great accessory which can help make an outfit but also keeps you fashionably warm. Blanket scarves are my favourite kind during winter months as they can be worn in all sorts of ways. I also have a few scarves my mother knit for me, you can check out her eBay store.

Winter coat

And lastly it wouldn’t be right to have a 5 must have winter fashion items post without a winter coat. As I mentioned the UK is pretty much cold throughout the year and though I don’t wear my winter coat outside winter it’s essential to have. I have three New Look and H&M coats that I have had for years and still keep me warm today.

There is only one thing I love about winter months, staying in my pajamas and drinking hot cocoa.

    I really love the thermal Christmas socks. It has been crazy cold here in Chicago and my feet are always freezing.

    A scarf is always a must when traveling throughout the winter. You don’t want to catch a chest cold.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:55 am

      Not you don’t I always have my scarf handy whenever I travel

    Knee high boots are my FAVORITE! I love those first weekends when it cools off in fall because I can bring out the boots!

    All these are absolute necessities. But the knee high boots are not that required as the climate is temperate where we live.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:56 am

      You guys are lucky, for us here its a necessity for sure

    I really like that yellow knot sweater. And a good pair of thermal socks is a must for winter.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:56 am

      Hahaha, aren’t they just so gorgeous!

    That scarf looks so large and cozy! Totally love your picks but that scarf really stood out to me.

    I love that coat. It doesn’t seem too heavy, although we need a heavy one right now, but at least not all winter. Boots and socks are a must for me to stay warm.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:57 am

      Don’t seem heavy but it is definitely warm but it doesn’t hurt to add in a thin cardigan inside

    Boots and warm socks are on my list of winter must haves. I always find a great buy on boots around mid fall and stock up for the winter.

    These are all great items! I am in need of some new boots and have not really considered gray ones. I am loving how they look. I am all about cozy sweaters and cardigans this time of year.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:58 am

      I only own one pair of grey boots and these are it, I am loving them for sure

  11. January 15, 2018 / 11:45 pm

    This time of year is my favorite for clothing. I love that yellow sweater. SO chic and elegant. I also love my new pair of black booties!

  12. January 15, 2018 / 7:56 pm

    Oh, nice choices. I love the soft grey color. The boots are to die for. I would wear them all the time. Gorgeous.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:58 am

      Hahaha I am loving the boots even more so now that the weather is colder

  13. January 15, 2018 / 6:11 pm

    This is such a lovely coat! I do have a few coats that I enjoy. My favorite is a pea coat. I don’t really wear boots though. Mostly my sneakers.

  14. January 15, 2018 / 5:12 pm

    That coat is gorgeous! I’m a winter lover, and I don’t mind looking cute while loving it! The socks are a must for lounging around the house – but I’d have to take them off before bed, since I get so hot with them on.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:58 am

      I have cold feet and often sleep with my socks on but tend to kick them off once I am warm

    Those socks look fantastic! A friend gave me a similar pair about 4 years ago and I just had to retire them and I miss them.

    I’m not-so-patiently waiting for spring! I’m in love with all of the winter fashion items you’ve shown here – the coat is amazing and those boots are pretty too.

    • January 20, 2018 / 10:59 am

      Hahaha, I was thinking I needed spring to get here already but not so much anymore

    I have couple different pairs of boots. Plus two different coats depending on what I am wearing.

    My feet are ALWAYS cold, so warm cozy socks are a MUST for me. I have like 20 pairs 🙂

    • January 20, 2018 / 11:00 am

      Oh you and me would get along just fine, I have so many socks because of my cold feet though they seem to do a lot of walk abouts
