6 Statement Pieces You Need to Transition to Winter

When it comes to winter outfits, organizing your closet can be a bit tricky, especially when you live in Florida, but still travel up North. Between cute sweaters, puffy coats and big boots, it doesn’t take long for things to feel cluttered. Especially when fall weather lingers long enough to keep you from having to break out your warmest coat and thickest scarf for a little longer.

Transitioning from a fall to winter closet is (thankfully) easier than you might think! In fact, there are a few pieces you can incorporate into your pre-winter wardrobe to make the change even more seamless. These pieces are versatile, customizable and add a touch of boldness when worn with multiple different cold-weather looks. 

Here are six statement pieces you need to transition to winter

1. Leather Leggings: A pair of stretchy leather leggings has the power to take your outfit from athleisure to an elevated and trendy fall look. Leather (or vegan leather) leggings make a statement simply because they are made of a different fabric than regular workout or fashion leggings. If it’s starting to get colder, it’s easy to stay warm in regular or fleece-lined leather leggings. Many of these will even have a slimming effect on the body as well. These shiny statement leggings look great with an oversized sweater, chunky boots and edgy jewelry! 

Seriously, leather and faux-leather leggings are becoming the must-have for Fall 2021.

2. Bold Coat: While it might not be your most practical piece of outerwear, a great-fitting coat in a bold color or print will help you transition to the winter months with ease. This is especially great for those of you who are looking to add some color variation into your winter regimen. As fall leaves change color and autumn foliage thrives, take some inspiration from your surroundings and go for a coat that includes your favorite bright fall color. This might be a rich orange, jewel-toned plum or even a plaid print that includes both neutral and statement colors. Wear this to liven up a skinny jeans and turtleneck combo or over your favorite little black dress.

3. Big Winter Bag: While summer is all about beach bags and bright-colored clutches that complement white outfits, fall and winter fully embrace the inclusion of a big statement bag that carries everything you need. Even if you’re still wearing summer closet leftovers into fall, just add a big, dark-colored purse or tote into the mix for instant fall vibes. The result is a weather-appropriate look that doesn’t have to be all black. As the weather continues to get colder, you might think about pairing your wintry bag with a trendy jacket in a dark fall color and some over-the-knee boots.

4. Black Booties: Speaking of those over-the-knee boots, sometimes it’s best to ease into the winter season with a pair of shorter boots. Black ankle boots are a great way to make a fall statement that will stay in your closet all winter long. With an array of different shapes and styles, there’s a short black boot out there for just about everyone. For a casual, everyday look, pair your short boots with a blazer and a baseball cap (which might become your winter errand-running wardrobe). To elevate things a bit, throw on your short boots with a long slip-inspired dress.

5. Investment Sweater: What’s any fall wardrobe without a good sweater or two? On the other hand, however, too many sweaters in your wardrobe can take up a lot of space. Instead of spending your hard-earned dollars on a bunch of “meh” quality sweaters, think about investing in fewer of them with better quality. Having a handful of well-made cute sweaters is not only noticeable to you when you wear them, but you can also count on them to last through more seasons than those made from cheaper material.

Black, grey and other staple colors are great to have as basics in your wardrobe, but a sweater in a bold statement color or versatile print will take you from fall to winter effortlessly. Make sure to choose a comfy, high-quality fabric that won’t pill or lose its shape after a few wears. Wear it on its own as the weather starts to cool down and through the winter as a colorful layering piece as well. If you live in warmer climates, a long cardigan with a bold print will work well over just a fall t-shirt or a long sleeve shirt.

6. Bold Hat: Make a statement with a simple yet fun accessory by adding a hat to your fall and winter wardrobe. If you’re new to the hat game, you can try playing around with different hat styles like knit beanies, wool berets or even a structured wide-brimmed fedora. Hats are a great way to spice up your fall-to-winter outfits, plus they can work wonders at hiding a bad hair day. Add a colored hat to a monochromatic outfit or as a way to elevate your jeans and sweater look.
