Winter Style Essentials

Every season has its must-have wardrobe items – in winter, it’s all about being warm while still being stylish…

Winter Essential #1: Merino

We’ve had some super chilly days lately, haven’t we? I thoroughly recommend wearing merino to help keep you warm – it’s super warm without being super bulky, which helps you to layer up easily.

Winter Essential #2: Jeans

A pair of jeans can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood. When it’s cold, they’ll not only help you stay warm, but they are super easy to style – just add a crisp white shirt and a merino sweater and you’ve nailed it. Check out my guide to finding your dream jeans here.

Winter Essential #3: Coat

One thing that so many people in New Zealand seem to lack is a warm coat! EziBuy has so many great ones to suit every body shape – pop over here to check out some of my top picks. I also think that a good trench is a must-have addition to every wardrobe – wear it near the end of winter when it starts to warm up a little.

Winter Essential #4: Boots

Keep your feet warm (and dry!) with a quality pair of boots. If you’re not quite sure what length or style of boots to pair with which outfit, check out our handy guide here.

Winter Essential #5: Accessories

I think that accessories are my favourite part of winter fashion – changing up your accessories can help to change your whole look! A scarf and gloves are my must-haves for every day to make sure I’m toasty and warm…
