WINTER STYLE STAPLES FOR A STYLE RUT

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my full disclaimer here.

It’s that time of year again where I feel like I am kind of in a bit of a winter style rut. We have had the festive season but the comfortable and cosy clothes don’t want to leave my body just yet. All I currently seem to be wearing is a pretty jumper with a pair of joggers. That’s not really a cute look to be fair. So I thought it was about time I would go through my wardrobe and pick some pieces from there I know I will always love to wear and go back to. These are just some items I wear every winter and I will always go back to when I am a bit stuck creatively.

Black tee

A black tee to me is not just a piece of clothing I love to wear during spring and summer. During the wintertime I like to wear a black tee underneath jumpers to keep myself warm if it’s particularly cold during some winter days. When it’s slightly warmer or if I have a certain look in mind that requires a basic t-shirt, I will put them on. In winter I personally love to wear black tees styled with either a short cardigan or a blazer. Styling them like this can instantly lift your style rut as you get to experiment with some more summer pieces such as colourful blazers. Just make sure to wear plenty of layers when doing this, as you don’t want to catch a cold like this.

Striped tee

And just as much as I love my black tees in winter, I also tend to love the striped tees in winter. I usually style them pretty simple with a pair of black jeans or some smart trousers. Throw on a black or camel winter coat and instantly gives me those Parisian style vibes. Or you could style it like how I style the black tee. The options are endless with those kind of basics

Neutral jumpers

To add some sort of colour to my wardrobe, I needed to add some neutral coloured jumpers. Before the festive season I was wearing lots of neutral jumpers and I still absolutely love to put a jumper from my neutral collection on. If I want to look a bit more sophisticated or put together, I would go for jumpers that aren’t very heavy knits. These thinner jumpers can also easily be worn underneath blazers and can be styled with basically anything from midi skirts to smart trousers or just simple jeans.

Black jeans

Which brings me to my next item. Jeans are always a staple aren’t they? I personally love black jeans and think they are such a staple to wear, especially in winter. In the past I would always wear skinny jeans, but at the moment I love to wear black mom jeans. These jeans look good with anything; it doesn’t matter if you want to look smart or casual. Wear a pair of black jeans and you can easily go from a casual day-look to a glamorous evening look.

Black oversized jumpers

Some days I feel slightly off and all I want to be is be comfortable. My go-to item for those sort of days is an oversized black jumper. Obviously it has to be black, because it’s one of those colours that always look chic if it’s an item you take care of. I love to style this sort of jumper with flared leggings if I really woke up in a mood that morning. It’s basically one of my favourite outfits to wear on Mondays as it feels like you’re wearing pyjamas. If you style this sort of outfit with a pair of trainers and a fancier looking coat, no one will ever notice that you’re basically wearing an outfit as comfortable as pyjamas.

Grey scarf

And finally I think an outfit can instantly be made to look a lot more expensive if you add a grey scarf. I don’t know where this came from in my mind, but whenever I see someone out and about wearing a long line black coat with a grey scarf I can’t help but feel as if they have got their lives together. It’s why whenever I feel like I am a bit in a style rut and have to go out and don’t have a clue, I would style an all black outfit with a grey scarf. This way you can fake it until you make it and feel super pulled together until your creative juices have come back and you are officially out of your style rut.
