Six Must-Have Items And Accessories For Winter Weather

When the winter temperatures begin to drop, make sure you have some specific clothing and accessory items in your closet. These are versatile pieces that will see you through the cooler months, and into spring, stylishly and comfortably.

Some great looks and must-have pieces are:

A warm cashmere scarf. When the wintry winds blow, wrap up with a soft and luxurious cashmere scarf. These are great accents, and they can effectively dress-up your favorite winter coat. Cashmere is lush, sumptuous, and, if you haven't tried wearing it, you are in for a treat!

Athletic leggings and activewear. Feel fit and energized by layering your skirts and dresses with athletic wear and warm leggings. These will keep you looking smooth and lean, while also providing a flattering silhouette under your favorite clothing. Look for Lycra-blends that offer stretch and support.

A soft, silky shawl. If you have any large or oversized summer scarfs, pull them out of your closet for a light shawl to wear in winter. These are just the right thing to wear over a turtleneck or your favorite dress, and they will help to keep the chill off during cooler seasons. Layer these for a cool, Bohemian style.

Some great denim. There is a reason why jeans are one of most people's favorite garment; buy denim but make sure to have it tailored or altered to fit right and flatter your figure. Go with classic cuts for ageless style, and wear all winter long for a comfortable and timeless look.

Wintertime shades. Before you put all your sunglasses away for winter, save a couple pair to wear outside when the sun reflects off  the ice and snow. Protect your eyes by wearing polarized, quality shades.

A great pair of boots. A great pair of leather cowboy or western boots is a versatile item to have in your closet year-round. These can be paired with a cute sundress in the summer or worn with practically anything all winter long. Look for quality leather boots from JC Western Wear with reinforced uppers and a decent, stacked heel for comfort and wear-ability.
