Thanksgiving is a jump and a skip away. That means winter is not far behind. We fashionistas must prepare for the brutal cold, heavy snow, and gloomy days all while staying fly and trendy. Here are our five staple pieces we think you should be thankful for this holiday season.

Boots

Boot season is in full effect. Take advantage and buy yourself at least five pairs to help you through the fall and winter months. Here are a couple styles you must rock this season:

These velvet thigh highs from ASOS are on high trend alert. With a medium stacked heel, you’re able to dress these boots up with a cute dress or dress them down with an oversized sweatshirt. Layer the boots with leggings or stockings to keep you warmer in the colder months.

Great for the rain or snow, waterproof duck boots will sure do the job of keeping your feet dry and warm. Throw on a pair of thick boot socks, a pair of skinny jeans, and a plaid shirt and you’re ready for a casual weekend.

 

 

 

 

 


Sweaters

Thick, or thin. Cute or ugly, sweaters should become your best friend this year. Great for layering over shirts and tees, sweaters can be worn for any occasion; for the holiday (Thanksgiving and Christmas), the office or something to just throw on for a quick brunch date. Here are some style sweaters that will never go out of style:

You can never go wrong with a classic cable knit sweater. Layer the sweater with a collard button down shirt, colored/printed pants, and cute flats or heels for a great office look. Add a mini skirt, some heels or boots with a pop color lip stick and you’re ready for after work happy hour.

Another great classic is a cashmere sweater. We recommend investing in a quality cashmere sweater. With the right care, it can last you many fall and winter seasons to come.
