Winter is here and with winter comes just another excuse to wear our favourite clothes all while being warm and fuzzy. Who said winter fashion needs to be dull and boring when it can be classy and sassy? Winter wear can be tricky to ace because you want to look your stylish best without looking like a fur ball. Apart from all your warm fuzzy wear to cozy up at home, winter essentials are just as important not just to ensure you always look stylish but that you'd also be warm. The idea of winter staples are that it can be paired multiple times and in various ways to create new looks that are anything but basic. Think sweaters, jackets and boots to give you that uplifted winter look to make the street your personal runway.

Things To Remember When You're Buying Winter Staples
1. Stick to basics as they will take you a long way more than the trend of the season. Basics that are essentials in your wardrobe are to create multiple looks with simple clothing pieces.
2. Always check the material before buying like wool or a wool blend to keep you warm through the cold nights as well.
3. Make sure you get the perfect fit because usually winter wear is slightly looser than the usual clothing we're used to wearing and shouldn't make you slouch.
