Fashion Must Haves: Winter Edition

A pair of light blue jeans is an essential wardrobe item as they are SO versatile.  They can be dressed up or down, according to the occasion and above all, they are warm! Perfect for this cold winter weather! This pair of high waisted jeans looks really nice with a cropped jumper or with a pretty shirt tucked into them. MOTO BLEACH KRISTEN JEANS $78 

I love satchel style bags because not only do they look cute, they also feel very sturdy and secure. Many stores sell this style of bag, however a cheaper alternative would be to scout around at op shops. They have some really nice genuine leather satchels for quite cheap, plus, I find second hand bags look really nice because they have been used, giving them that worn in, vintage look. H&M MESSENGER BAG $30

The next item is a thick jumper, like this cropped mustard one from River Island. These look really nice layered with a collared shirt underneath as well as by itself. This beautiful yellow colour brightens up an otherwise gloomy winter and looks particularly pretty on those with yellow or golden undertones. RIVER ISLAND MUSTARD CROPPED JUMPER $49

I think everyone should own at least one white collared blouse, because like jeans, it can be dressed up or down. I love wearing a collared blouse under a large jumper with the collar peeping out the top, giving the overall look a more tailored feel. If you want to get fancy, you could even try embellishing the collar tips with broaches or clip on earrings! RIVER ISLAND WHITE BOXY SHIRT $51

During the winter, closed toe shoes are pretty much essential (nobody likes wet, cold feet!) That's why I've picked these cool ankle boots by Number One Shoes. They have a slight heel, yet are still low enough to be (not technically but sorta) classified as flats. While I'm not exactly a shoe person, I wouldn't say no to these in several different colours! Hahaha! NUMBER ONE SHOES ADRITA ANKLE BOOTS $40

The final item is a bright red lipstick! I've always thought that wearing lipstick in winter is a lot more bearable than in the summer, because lipstick just melts off in hot weather ,(red lipstick streaming down the face is not an attractive look!) Anyway (slightly off topic there!) I think a pop of a bright colour looks really nice paired with a winter outfit. If you don't like bright red, you could try a bright fuchsia pink instead. RIMMEL LONDON LIPSTICK IN #01 $15 

Would you all be interested in a Ball/Prom Fashion and Beauty feature? I was thinking of doing one, but I thought I should check to see if you would actually enjoy that. Let me know in the comments below!
