Fall & Winter Essentials

 Winter Scape

 The essential pieces for fall and winter. Get these pieces in classic styles and neutral tones first, then you can wear them yearly and you will never be out of style. Once you have them in neutrals, pick them up in beautiful colors and patterns that you like for variety. 


Classic Coats

 Trench coats and pea coats in wool will keep you warm for many years to come. They are timeless, stylish and look good with any outfit. For best versatility, get a coat or jacket to wear during the fall, and a warmer one for when the temperature really drops.


Sweater Esentials

 A warm sweater is perfect for leisure days and nights, or for casual work places. Sweaters and cardigans are great layering pieces, and a nice knit or cashmere sweater is a classic piece to have for anyone that has fall and winter.


Winter Essential Accessories

 Keep yourself warm with classic leather gloves, warm hats and scarves. A warm hat will prevent the heat from escaping from your head (warm air rises), which keeps you surprisingly warm once you put a hat on. Gloves will keep your hands warm, as they are the first (along with the feet) to get cold. Scarves are great for keeping your neck warm, and keeping the warmth in, while adding texture, and color and interest to your outfit. Always get at least one item of each in a neutral and classic first to get the most use per wear.


Essentials Shoes for Fall & Winter

 Riding boots are great for a casual dressy look all fall and winter long. Moccasins can be worn inside or out and the sheepskin will keep your feet cozy yet fashionable and comfortable. Rain boots are great for any place that gets lot's of rain, and can be made more winter ready by adding an inner shell. Ankle booties are a classic for this time of the year, and will take you from the office to a party afterward.

Under warmth

 When no amount of layers will keep you warm enough, under clothing warmth is a must. Whether it be leggings under skirts dresses and pants, or long socks that warm the feet as well as the legs, once you have them, you'll wonder how you ever lived without them.

If you're fortunate you won't need all of these to get you through fall and winter. However, for those of us that do, these are essentials. Now you're ready for winter for any cool weather that comes. What essentials can't you live without for fall and winter?
