Whether you’re planning to stay local this holiday season or explore somewhere further afield, you need to make sure you look the part – and, most importantly, that you stay cosy! Winter fashion can sometimes feel a little unimaginative, but we at Zaftyg are here to help you pick out your basics. That way, you have more time to enjoy the best parts of the festive season: mulled wine, ice skating, and long winter walks. Read on to find out our 5 closet essentials for a winter getaway!
1. A pair of thick boots
Whatever your style, a good-quality pair of black boots can look good with pretty much any outfit – whether you’re adding a little edge to your knitted dress, or teaming with a pair of classic jeans. For maximum comfort, try a pair of thick-soled lace-up boots, like these traditional Dr Martens, which will have you skipping the city streets all day long. To dress up a little, opt instead for a pair of heeled boots, like these leather ankle boots from Zara.
2. A cosy turtleneck sweater
Because no cosy winter outfit is complete without a chunky knit! Whether you opt for soft neutrals or bright, bold colours, a big, swaddling turtleneck sweater is the perfect solution to cold winter evenings. Try this cream ribbed chunky knit from H&M, or this elegant, tight-fitting pink sweater from Zara.
3. A statement jacket
Outerwear is key during the winter months – and what better way to express yourself, and your fashion sense, than with a statement jacket? Choose bold, vibrant patterns to brighten up those dark evenings, or tone things down with a sophisticated trench. Check out this selection of incredible coats and jackets from Bershka, which includes a super-soft teddy bear jacket which is guaranteed to keep you cosy.
4. A pair of Mom jeans
The most flattering style of jeans on every body type, Mom jeans are thick, comfy, and perfect for layering. Invest in a good-quality pair of denim Mom jeans, and we know you won’t regret it. Asos offer a varied collection of Mom jeans in every cut and colour, but we recommend these light blue slouchy Mom jeans from Bershka.
5. A plain white shirt
A classic closet staple, white shirts are a handy accessory for any season, and look amazing dressed up or dressed down. Layer under a knitted vest, or team with a pair of leather-look leggings to create your perfect winter look. Italian brand United Colors of Benetton sell a huge range of high-quality white shirts like this one.
