Memphis is smack dead in the middle of Winter, but outside of a few days of snow and freezing cold here and there, our Winters don’t get too bad. Getting dressed can be a little difficult sometimes because you want to be cute, obviously, but you also don’t want to freeze to death or catch a cold.

We’re weeks away from when we can shed our heavy winter coats in favor of lighter layers and brighter looks, so it makes sense to add a few essential pieces that will still let you rock current trends but will also transition easily into Spring once it begins to get warm.

Just in case your wardrobe is in need of an update, here are a few winter styles that you need right now. And the best thing? They will help you easily take your wardrobe into Spring.

Knit Sweaters

Cozy knit sweaters are a must during the Winter season, so stocking up on a few colors within a specific color palette will help you keep your wardrobe chic and cohesive. Pair them with your favorite denim to keep them casual, or try with a pencil skirt and boots for a look that’s a little more fashion forward.

Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean that you have to pack up all of your dresses. Find a few maxi style dresses that you can pair with your favorite booties and top with a jacket or a fun faux fur vest.

Patterned Kimonos

If you’re looking to break up the solids in your wardrobe, try adding in a few patterned kimonos as a 3rd piece. Wear them over a silky slip dress and thigh highs, or with a simple turtleneck and some leather leggings.

Add in some of your favorite cold weather accessories to complete your outfits and you’ll be good to go!

Accessories are the easiest way to update your wardrobe each season, and now that Winter is here, it’s time to find a few cold weather weather appropriate bags. There are so many fun options to choose from this season, especially when it comes to prints and textures. And thankfully, you don’t have to go broke when you want to add something new; there’s always some type of sale going on this time of year, plus a lot of stores get in new inventory as well. I’ve always been the type to carry the same bag every day, but I like to add new ones periodically. I carry a lot of stuff with me and have my camera most days, but I still try to switch it up from time to time so that I can actually enjoy my handbag collection. There’s no point in acquiring all of these pretty things if they’re never used or seen, you know?

If you’re looking to refresh your handbag collection soon, here’s a roundup of Winter bags all under $100.
