There’s less than one month of Winter left! However, if you live in a city like London or Seattle, then you know that the beginning of Spring doesn’t exactly mean warmer weather. That’s why I’m sharing my Winter favorites that kept me warm and cozy all season long!
Ultra Long Puffer Coat
This one has been a favorite for the past two Winters. It comes in tall, petite, and regular lengths. As a tall women, it’s one of the few winter coats that actually goes past my knees. This coat is ultra warm and has so many great features! It has a fleece-lined hood and pockets and a cinchable waist that is hidden on the inside of the coat. It zips and buttons in the front, but it also has some snap buttons along the sides of the legs. These are great because if you’re wearing a coat that is zipped up past your knees, it can cause you to trip going up stairs (I *might* be speaking from experience). The side buttons allow you to take a full stride, but still keep you warm. This piece is an investment, but it frequently goes on sale, so keep an eye out! They also sell out quite often, but they’ve been restocking them for the past two years. I think I might have to order it in another color for next Winter! Pro tip: I always size one to two sizes up in winter coats to make room for layers.
Cropped Puffer Coat
This is the jacket of the season! It’s a great piece for the beginning and end of Winter. OR if you don’t spend a ton of time walking outside, then it’s perfect all season long! My puffer is from Zara (linked above) and is really affordable for a faux leather option (only $69). It is so versatile! You can wear it over a midi dress, pair it with high-waisted jeans, or leggings and an oversized sweater.
When I’m not wearing over the knee riding boots (gotta keep those legs warm and dry), I am wearing combat boots with everything. They are a great piece that transitions from Fall to Winter and even into the beginning of Spring! If you’re looking for an easy way to make your outfit more edgy, these are an excellent option. Mine (linked above) are currently out of stock, but I’ll share lots of similar styles.
Not much beats a cozy, oversized sweater! It’s one of my Winter favorites that comes back year after year. This season I’ve been layering them over faux leather leggings most days, and occasionally, I pair them with some high-waisted skinny jeans. My most-worn sweater is out of stock, but I’ll share lots of alternative styles! Most pieces below are tall friendly, but I also linked a petite, curvy, and maternity option.
My Ganni recycled wool beanie is definitely my most worn (and practical) accessory of this past Winter. It is the perfect oatmeal color (called ‘Brazillian Sand’) to go with all my cold weather basics! It is so comfortable and warm, and it hasn’t been stretched out after 100+ wears. When shopping for things that you will wear year-after-year, don’t be afraid to splurge a bit. Ultimately, the “cost per wear” will be low if you get daily or weekly use from the product.
I hope these Winter favorites help you stay warm and cozy for the rest of the cold weather season!
