In fact, there are only two main requirements for an ideal winter wardrobe: it must be warm and stylish. This is easier said than done. Indeed, in really warm clothes, you can quickly become like a cabbage or a man from a Michelin advertisement, and there is no time for stylish bows.
But in fact, putting together a basic winter wardrobe that will keep you warm and at the same time help you look stylish is not so difficult – you just have to correctly combine new trends and proven classics. So what exactly are seven things to keep in mind for the next three months?
By the way, about the Michelin man! If you really look like him, then the most stylish. And a quilted coat or a down jacket will help with this – you definitely cannot do without this outerwear this season. The main thing here is to pay attention to the cut – the silhouette of a classic coat looks fresher with this texture, and it can also be worn with a belt, which will help balance the proportions. Jackets should be chosen trapezoidal with an extension at the bottom or beveled hem, as in the main model of this winter, The Frankie Shop.
Spectacular winter clothing is now becoming one of the main trends in fashion, so there is a good chance that we will be wearing quilted coats in the next few years. It's time to buy yourself this!

Cozy Teddy fur coats have long become a winter classic, but also, we must admit, are already a little boring. If you are tired of feeling like a clone on the winter streets, and you don't want to part with warm and cool material, then it's time to take a closer look at jumpers.
In addition, sports and hiking fashion is experiencing a new round of popularity again. Only at the peak are now not bicycles and sneakers, but hiking boots, vests, cargo pants and fleece jackets.
The oversized soft jumper will definitely become a noticeable detail of the everyday look and a fresh alternative to the cashmere sweater. You can choose models of classic colors with ornaments, and non-trivial bright options for “instagram” shades like pink or light green. Well, the main thing is that these Teddy jumpers are perfectly combined with other winter must-haves – leather trousers and boots with massive soles.

Of course, in winter, first of all, you should think about warmth and comfort, and the ideal winter wardrobe should consist of basic waterproof things and stylish classics (for example, the same sweaters), but at the same time you need at least one spectacular item.
Faux leather pants combine almost all of these points. They can be easily cleaned of slush, any top is suitable for them (and such an image looks much cooler right away), and, of course, they are quite cozy and comfortable thanks to the soft seamy side and elasticity. But in severe frosts, you should still wear tights or thermal underwear under them.
After the release of the “Gossip Girl” reboot, interest in the preppy style has increased again, so this winter not only those who want to keep warm, but also those who want to look relevant cannot do without a vest. You can combine it with both oversized shirts and turtlenecks or T-shirts (if the day is not too cold). Neutral colors will easily fit into a formal everyday wardrobe, but lovers of extravagant looks should take a closer look at the now fashionable colorful knitwear.
This thing has definitely staked out a place in the list of basic winter things for a long time, but it is clearly not worth underestimating it. Such a dress is comfortable and warm – as if wrapped in a favorite blanket (and this feeling in winter you often want to take with you from home), while it is elegant in its minimalism (here it is worth looking closely at monochromatic models). Add high boots and the stylish look is ready. Fans of experiments can recall the trend from the 2000s and additionally “warm” the bow with trousers or bell-bottomed jeans.
Oversized scarves made of soft wool are simply irreplaceable in a winter wardrobe. If you tend to get cold quickly, this accessory is always worth carrying with you. In addition, in the gloomy winter months, when many people wear dark down jackets, a bright scarf is the only way to somehow “color” your image.
XL scarves can be styled in a variety of ways: wrap casually around your neck, throw them over your shoulders like a shawl, or wrap them in a crisscross pattern and tie them in a knot at the waist.

Boots and boots with massive soles are no longer a novelty – for at least two seasons, everyone is crazy about them and they have even managed to become a kind of classics. The thick sole additionally protects the feet from the cold, and their brutal look gives sharpness to any look – women of fashion boldly combine them with jeans and dresses. In general, from all sides a profitable fashionable find.
