Winter Wonderland
`Tis the season to avoid…the freezing, never-ending winter weather!

This season, we’ll give you the run down of the key pieces you’ll need amongst those extra layers for winter.

The Essential: It’s all about keeping warm in this classic military inspired fashion statement. This piece shows a sense of confidence yet elegant and sexy. Falling well past your knees with buttons trailing to your neck (double-breasted or single); the coat is bound to get you set for those frosty nights!

Where to buy: Aritzia is one of Canada’s trendy retailers that carry exclusive labels such as Wilfred, which is currently selling their wool/cashmere blend, double-breasted coat that come in traditional hues such as black, beige and grey. These are great colours for this season -- they just never go out of style! Price $375

How high are your boots? – Casual or dressy, flat or heeled. What would winter be without boots? Making them the hottest shoe trend for women this season, over-the-knee boots are dramatically tall boots that reach up to your knees. They can be worn with your faux leather leggings, dark-wash skinny jeans, a pair of shorts or a full skirt.

Where to buy: These daring over-the-knee boots are sold at Nine West; one pair in particular come in a taupe and black suede with a laced tassel design at the back rim of the boot. These sassy kicks can give your simple, casual look a little va voom! Price $149

Strut those legs: This key piece is definitely a must! Leggings now-a-days are available in all kinds of patterns, fabrics and colours. We decided that black faux leather leggings gives an outfit that edgy and bold look that we love! For a girl’s night, slip them on with a pair of your killer boots that rise halfway up to your thighs and adding on sequenced tunic or wear them during the day with a loose v-neck, bright coloured pumps and a pair of dark shades. This season is all about showing off your striders!

Where to buy: American Apparel sells fabulous faux leather leggings that also come in different textures such as classic cotton spandex, nylon tricot, faux denim, satin, and even in eel (just the feel of it!) Price: $32 - $46

Get even comfier! : Can’t get any warmer than this! If comfort and warmth is the ultimate luxury during this wintery weather, what could be better than a put-it-over-everything knitted cardigan? The boyfriend look would be better to consider just because it’s a piece that can make your whole outfit look effortless but yet city/casual.

Where to buy: It’s best to look for an over-sized knit cardigan that contains a wool blend; just so you can keep that body of yours warm and cosy. Zara carries great wool blend knits that offer gorgeous styles and textures. F.Y.I, their thick knitted cardigans are so in for this season. Price: $39 - $59
