Wardrobe Essentials for the New Year

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again … I am all about the wardrobe essentials for your closet. I usually find clothes that are in the same color range, are really simple, and can last through the seasons. Sometimes I will splurge on essential clothing pieces because I know I will have them for years, but other times I find them cheap! (I just found a leather jacket that I LOVE from Marshall’s for $40.) With that being said, I’m here to give you some wardrobe essentials that I am really crushing on for the winter season and coming year. My sweet friend Sky was home from Dallas for the holidays and helped me model for this post :).

Turtleneck & Cowl Neck Sweaters:

If you follow me on Instagram, I recently put my fav new turtleneck sweater on my story. I love the ease of oversized turtleneck sweaters because they are classy and simple. I have four turtleneck sweaters in different colors because I love them so much!

Here is the sweater that Skylar is wearing in the photos above.

Simple Statement Tops:

Anthro: Ardent Swing Top

Long Wool Coat & Boots:

I’m pretty sure I’m a jacket hoarder, but it’s kind of necessary when you live in Seattle. So when I find a good deal on a jacket, I make sure to snatch it up. Same with boots! I have a good pair in both brown and black so that I can pair with any outfit.
