Winter just got real! Is it just me or did temperatures drop what felt like overnight? 

Pack away those sundresses and espadrilles because warm summer days are well and truly over ladies. Say hello to dewy mornings and even colder nights. As much as I would l like to pass the colder months curled up in front of a fire with a cup of tea and a good book, I am going to leave the house at some stage. Forget track pants and hoodies and fill your wardrobe with staples that will stand the test of temperature and time. 

We have 5 essentials that will do just that! Keep you warm, while still looking fierce.

1. Coat
Black is every girl’s best friend (especially in winter). But many of us fall into that all-black boring trap when we go to style our black tunic with our black leggings and black boots. It may be cold and dark outside but your wardrobe doesn’t have to be.Introduce a pop of colour with this poppy red beauty from Witchery, which will have everyone thinking you have just flown in from France. #ladyinred #eurochic Red Witchery Coat 
2. Ankle Boots
Ankle boots can be worn with everything. And we mean everything. Style them with work dresses or skirts paired with opaque stockings, or wear with jeans to instantly dress up a casual look. Did we mention the block heel means they provide height that’s actually comfortable to wear for long periods of time (unlike your favourite heels…). We are loving these vintage suede ankle boots. Serious shoe envy.
3. Knit
Sometimes all you feel like wearing is something big and comfortable. Something that cuddles you in its softness and lets you feel as if you were lounging around at home. Cashmere or wool, cable knit or fine knit – no matter the type having a cosy winter knit will be a lifesaver. We are crushing over this asymmetrical shoulder knit from Witchery. Pair with a leather skirt to take you in the night with ease. Grey Witchery Knit.
4. Scarf
Scarves are must have for all winter wardrobes. Not only are they going to be your BFF on a chilly day, they allow you to make your own style statement. The Tribal scarf is one of our favourites for a fresh day at the office without feeling weighed down. The classic monochrome print look will pair perfectly with those soft neutral winter tones of camel and grey. Zurii Tribal Scarf.
5. Handbag 

In a season when your coat covers up most of your outfit, the perfect handbag can make all the difference. With its gorgeously soft black leather, combined with structure and detail the Georgia in Black is the perfect winter companion. Complimenting your outfit effortlessly with it’s classic shape and clean lines it transitions easily from the office to a warm glass of red after work. Zurii Georgia Handbag. 

With these 5 pieces you are ready to take on the winter chill and look good doing it.
