Winter Style Wishlist

I don't think this would be an appropriate winter wishlist without a good helping of knitwear and layering pieces. The sudden drop in temperature and the dusting of snow has inspired me to share with you my current winter style inspiration. Creating wishlists is becoming an unhealthy habit of mine to say the least, because whatever I add lengthens my increasing list of things I would like to be in my wardrobe, is that really a bad thing though?

Sweater Dress
A dress in winter? no! I couldn't agree more. In the freezing temperatures and temperamental weather the last thing I want to do is throw on a dress, however recently I have been seeing sweater dresses everywhere. They are a gorgeous layering piece that can add a bit of winter spice to any outfit as well as keeping you toasty warm. The added touch of the roll neck will keep you bag on trend this winter and these dresses pair perfectly with either a pair of thigh high neutral toned boots or some knee high socks.

Monk Shoes
I have been looking for the perfect pair of Monk shoes for a while now. When scrolling through the virtual isles of ASOS I came across this pair from Doc Martens, and if you know me you know that I am a sucker for a good old pair of Doc's. I like how the burgundy shade is two tonal and will look amazing paired with an all black outfit to add a bit of grunge.

Boyfriend Cardigan
This boyfriend fit cardigan is the kind of staple piece that should appear in everyone's winter wardrobe. It would be a great layering piece for all the seasons when you need a bit of extra warmth.

Leather Jacket
Another timeless staple item. I have been on the look out for that perfect faux leather full length jacket for what seems like forever. I always see the cropped kind but why have half the material when you can own it all?

Grey Maxi Dress
This may not seem like your typical item to add to a winter wishlist and granted it isn't. However, picture this dress layered under a oversized sweater with a pair of ankle boots or doc martens peeping out. You can also throw on a jacket and huge scarf to make it ever more winter ready. In winter you don't just have to head to the winter section.

Classic Jumper
More knitwear, you can never have too many jumpers am I right? Now this is just a standard jumper, but to me it is the perfect fit, it isn't tight fitting, nor too baggy so it doesn't appear to be drowning you. For this outfit you can just throw on a pair of skinny jeans and a jacket, then you're out the door.

Black Cut Skinny Jeans
I already own two pairs of black skinny jeans but there always comes a time when you've got to say 'bon voyage' and replace them with a new pair. Admittedly, with this pair of jeans your knees may catch the cold, but I love how the rip in the knees add attention and grunge to the outfit and let's be honest here, you can't really go wrong with a pair of black jeans any time of the year.

What is there not to love about walking around all bundled up in oversized blanket? that's effectively what we are doing right? Winter fashion is all about keeping the staples in and layering them up to create that perfect winter outfit.
