Peacoats keep you warm when it’s too cold outside while still allowing you to look stylish. It goes great with everything – you can wear it with skirt, dress, pants, anything. Other than it will always make you look polished whichever outfit you wear it with, it also comes in a variety of style and color so it will surely suit every one’s needs.

Chunky Sweater

Chunky sweaters are so cozy and perfect for the cold winter months. You can wear them alone or wear a shirt underneath, either way will work. You can wear it with leggings, jeans, pants, or skirt; whichever you choose will look great because they are so easy to wear and can be worn with just about anything. Another favorite look of mine is wearing a dress underneath especially the fit and flare ones for a more fun look.

Blanket Scarf

Blanket scarves are the best accessory that you can get yourself every winter. Not only do they keep you warm when the cold wind blows, but they also complement anything you wear them with giving your outfit a nice cohesive look.

Over the Knee Boots

Not only am I in love with these because they look GREAT with anything no matter which color you get, but they also allow you to comfortably wear dresses and skirt in winter. I’ve been in search for months for my perfect pair and I’m so happy to have found mine at a GREAT deal!!! Special thanks to Tory Burch’s sale last Black Friday and the gift card they sent my way!

Next to scarves, tights are going to be your go-to accessory in winter. Not only do these amazing accessory allow you to wear mini skirts and dress in winter (just like over the knee boots), they also make your outfit look interesting. Wearing them underneath knee-length skirts and dresses and throwing on a pair of ankle boots with these will surely work as well. Make sure to also get the patterned ones so it makes your outfit more interesting and fun.

    This is such a fantastic list! I love a great peacoat. I bought a brown suede one from Victoria’s Secret years ago and still have it and it looks new. It’s such a classic!

    • Peacoats are indeed classic! Thank you; I am glad you liked the list.
