Warm & Cozy | My Winter Fashion Staples


   So in the last few weeks my country has experienced temperatures under -15ºC. It was horrible and I don't know how I'm still alive writing this post, as I absolutely hate winter, mostly because of the cold. Don't get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite holiday ever and that first snow is always such a beautiful moment but after three weeks of pure frostiness, I can't stop but dreaming about August and its unbearable heat (which I personally love). 

    Now, for this kind of weather, you definitely need layers and layers to keep yourself warm and cozy, so that's what I'm going to talk about today: my favorite items of clothing for keeping me happy during the winter!

    
     First, sweaters! Big, colorful, fluffy ones, whatever rocks your boat! I love buying sweaters and I find it's something that always catches my eye when I'm shopping, to the point where I have to tell myself "Maria, you literally have a closet full of them, stop." I can't help it. They are good for everything.. layering, looking decent and feeling warm! There are so many good stores for great sweaters. I especially love H&M and Pull & Bear when it comes to this kind of clothes!


    Whether it is for lounging around the house or for an extra layer of warmth, leggings are amazing! I find I'm never more comfortable than in a pair of cozy leggings and I desperately need them underneath my jeans when the temperatures are really low. These are from Bershka but you can literally find some anywhere! You can't go wrong with a good pair of leggings!


     Who said you can't look cool and stay warm at the same time? I think accessories are a great way of feeling more protected against the cold but also making any outfit a little bit more interesting. This winter I've been all about funny hats so this black one from Zara is a favorite of mine! Also, a big fluffy scarf is all you need sometimes! Mine is from Camaieu and it's a a cool mustard color which I personally love at the moment.


    My favorite item of clothing for the cold season has to be a coat. I love coats and outerwear in general, I think it can totally transform any outfit and make it look cool or not so cool. I looked for the perfect coat for so long. The cut had to be a certain way, also it had to be a cool color but also really warm. I found this perfect number in Pull & Bear and I'm totally in love with it! It saves me everytime as I can get away with wearing less clothes underneath.


    Finally, shoes! This pair of boots from Stradivarius are the perfect combination between comfortable and stylish, in my opinion. They are great on snow, because they have this type of sole, but they don't make you look like you're wearing man boots and they are not heavy either. They have a layer of faux fur inside which makes them perfect for keeping your feet warm! Magic.

    These are my favorite fashion items for this winter. What are some of yours?

  11. These are also my staples! Having an fluffy and cosy sweater and wearing a thick coat will definitely keep me warm when it is freezing outside (which is almost everyday). x

  26. I completely agree with you, the coldness of Winter is so horrible! But the holiday and the festive feeling is the best. I can't wait for August either to be honest, as much as I love my long coats - I'm so tired of them now lol. I love layering up and wrapping a chunky scarf around my neck though. This is such a lovely post hun, your fashion items have made the cold weather that little bit more bearable lol.:)
