Winter is here and with that comes the need for warm clothing. This is why we reached out to fashion blogger Elsie Mutsaka, to give us some tips on winter clothing essentials. We hope that you’ll soon be wearing these items and have a truly fashionable winter!
The Winter Coat
Everyone needs a coat in their wardrobe that says, “I know what I am doing! ” I prefer fitted coats that don’t look wobbly on my body and that complement my look or sometimes can even be the main item. It is important to have a go-to coat that goes with the majority of the colours in your closet. You can never really go wrong with black, grey or a camel type of coat that is versatile and timeless.
A Good Quality Pair Of Boots
I don’t know about you, but here in Zimbabwe, every time there is a slight breeze in the morning even in summer, the CBD will be full of people wearing their winter boots!
For the winter season, you do need a good pair of boots. I am a fan of leather so I have a brown leather pair. It’s not a secret that boots are warm and also fashionable. When it comes to this item, you need to be aware of your style and capabilities. For a timeless classic that you would like to have for years and get full wear, you need to know if you’re are a heels person or not! If you aren’t, then you know that you need an everyday boot that isn’t a high heel! Just make sure the quality is top-notch.
This closet item is the girl who she thinks she is. Depending on the quality, it can be the ultimate classy item in your closet. These work well for people who try by all means to avoid the cold. I know some people are not fans of the wool type, but the good thing is they come in other fabrics too even the stretchy ones.
A Leather Jacket
I am sure everyone has had one or wanted one at some point. For those days when you don’t want to overdo it with the coat, you can just pull out the biker jacket. What I love about these is that they can instantly transform a look into a statement, which is pretty cool. A real leather piece might be quite expensive and so it would be best to buy good a quality one that does not shed off after a season. You can also wear the biker/ leather jacket offseason, with dresses or other items in the closet.
There are a whole lot of other items that you can add to your closet depending on your needs and aesthetic, but I just thought to share the big items that could need a bit more money to buy if they are going to last long!
Which other item do you recommend to be added to this list? Keen to hear your thoughts in the comment section below, do share.
So Much Love…
