As I’ve scrolled my Instagram feed lately and seen the different climates others live in…it dawned on me that our winters here in Texas are SO different than really any other state. Sunday we were in the teens, freezing cold and had gotten some snow on Friday — Monday it was 79 degrees and sunny! You see what I mean!? It’s ridiculous!
So it got me thinking about winter wear and what were some essentials — well, for most states at least. But even us who have bipolar weather can still get some use from some of these pieces mentioned below. So I hope this helps you narrow in on some classic pieces that can be worn for winters to come.
Like I mentioned earlier, living in Texas, we don’t get a super harsh winter — so I haven’t owned a puffer coat since I was 6 and my mom would bundle me up to the point where I could barely walk! This coat is not only going to keep you warm, but it’s also pretty! (PS – My friend Biana knows how to rock winter wear like no other, check her out here!) Moving on to a more classic coat, a peacoat is pretty much an essential no matter where you live…in my opinion. It’s such a classic coat that can go with just about anything — I have a few peacoats in different colors — but this red coat is just gorgeous!
They are a great layering piece! I love the look of mixing patterns when styling vests, how cute would this quilted puffer vest look on top of a flannel?! Or this shearling vest on top of a bell sleeved top!
Shoes & Accessories
I wouldn’t get much use out of snow boots, but I could definitely use a nice pair of rain boots. Both would make great staple pieces for someone living in cold climate. (PS – Have y’all seen these Christian Louboutin boots!?) Blanket scarves and ponchos are a definite — duh! And to keep your noggin warm, there are beanies galore wherever you shop at….literally everywhere!
Thank you guys for reading and I hope you found this post helpful!
