As we head into the home stretch of winter, you might feel like you’ve fallen into a bit of a fashion rut when you pull on the same parka and pair of boots before heading outside to brave another snowy day. Midwinter is the perfect season for devoting a few hours to a closet clean out (we’ve all been watching the new Marie Kondo show on Netflix, right?) that will help you take stock of the gaps in your wardrobe. Take the time to assess which pieces look dated, worn, or otherwise tired and make a plan to reinvigorate your style with a little midwinter shopping. Here are five wardrobe staples to refresh this winter.
Outerwear: A cozy coat is the most essential piece in any winter wardrobe, but it can also be the item that feels most tired after a few seasons of wear. Luckily, the months after Christmas are a great time to find your new favorite coat for the years to come. As retailers launch their winter sales in preparation for new spring merchandise, you can score amazing deals on this season’s coat styles. Midwinter is the perfect time to upgrade your outerwear game with a rugged down parka or a statement coat for nights on the town (we’re thinking leopard print!).
Boots: Boots are another cold season staple that takes a beating as we get deeper into winter. When cleaning out your closet, take stock of your boots and replace any pairs that have been damaged by seasons of salt and snow. Like outerwear, boots are often marked down as the winter months pass by, so now is an excellent time to invest in that designer pair you’ve been eyeing. If you’re simply looking to revitalize a pair of boots that’s still in good condition, try wearing them with a new accessory—like cozy and colorful knitted leg warmers. Here are a few more of our favorite ways to wear the season’s trending boot styles.
Sweaters: With sweater season in full swing, you’re likely to be cozying up in your favorite knitwear nearly every day. Long term wear can take a toll on sweaters, so spend a few minutes surveying your collection for pilling, snagged, or misshapen pieces that could use an upgrade. With a few months of cold weather to go, there’s plenty of time to enjoy a new cardigan or classic cable knit.
Little Black Dress: Winter wedding season and the approach of Valentine’s Day offer the perfect excuses to add something fancy to your wardrobe, and a fresh little black dress is an investment piece you’ll never regret. Look for LBDs in fabrics that can transition from true winter into early spring to extend their versatility, and seek out unique details—like a geometric pop of color at the neckline or intricate lace—that set them apart from the crowd.
Work Bag: If you’ve recently found yourself in a style rut at the office, there’s one simple piece you can upgrade for a serious wardrobe refresh: your work bag! Your everyday bag likely takes a beating as it accompanies you on the train, in the car and to every meeting, so it’s definitely deserving of a promotion. Consider replacing a tired tote with a new piece—like a chic leather carryall or a bag in a statement color—that says “boss lady."
