Can you believe that next month we’re heading into spring? Last week we actually had a couple of good days when the sun was shining. Is spring upon us? I don’t think we are just there yet. It’s still chilly outside at the moment. When the weather is this chilly, the wind cuts into your skin because it’s that icy and — worst case scenario — there is snow, I grab a hold of my ultimate winter wardrobe essentials.
There are just a couple of items I can always depend on when the temperatures drop. They’re the items I’ve invested quite some money into and I have no regrets. Time and time again they save me from the cold. And today I’m sharing them with you. Here are my winter wardrobe essentials I grab when it’s cold outside:
ISABEL MARANT NOWLES BOOTS
Let’s start with my biggest investment: the Isabel Marant Nowles boots. They’re. The. Best. Winter. boots. Period. Yes, they are quit expensive and I wouldn’t recommend them if you live somewhere where winter is 10 degrees and up but if you experience real wintery weather, these boots are worth to check out. I’ve had them for a couple of years now, and keep them in the box when I don’t wear them. Every new winter season I brush the suede and drown them in a coat of protective spray. And so far they’ve stayed in the best condition because of it. Plus they still keep my feet snug and warm.

JUST FEMALE FAUX SHEARLING AVIATOR COAT
Another investment piece that I bought in the middle of the summer. Jup, true story. I had my eyes on this coat for a while before I made the jump to buy it. They were originally 700 euros which was way too much money so I waited on the sale and got it for 50% off. Still quit a lot of money but I don’t have regrets. It’s still the coat I grab when it gets really cold.
The shearling aviator coat that I have is not in stock anymore so I can’t link to it. The only two options — beside the ones below — that come close to it is this one from Zara. It’s definitely a lot more affordable.

ZARA POM BEANIE & H&M SCARF
And sometimes you don’t have to invest a lot of money into wardrobe essentials. My winter accessories are both from high street brands. I do love a cashmere beanie — which is also available on the high street. In the end I do want to upgrade both accessories to cashmere ones because I find it the most warm fabric without getting overheated.
MANGO FAUX LEOPARD FUR COAT
Who doesn’t love a faux fur coat? It looks luxurious without animals having to suffer for it. I got the faux leopard fur coat that I’m wearing about three years ago in the sale in Barcelona in spring. Again, buying winter items in warmer months — best tip to get a bargain. Like I said in my fall coats post, it’s a classic staple with a fun print that instantly makes an outfit.

MY COLLECTION OF WOOL KNITWEAR
And a winter wardrobe is not complete without knitwear. And I’ve collected a full stack of various knits over the years. For the winter months I go for heavier knits and save the cashmere for chilly spring nights. And the best part? You can find your new knitted winter wardrobe essentials on the high street. I’m especially loving & Other Stories knitted sweaters. They stay in good condition — if you don’t wash them on the wrong cycle like I did — and they have a good fit.
