I'm in the Mood to Amp Up My Winter Wardrobe, so I Said Yes to These 5 Pieces
You'd be right to assume that winter brings a lot less opportunity to have fun with your outfits, but as a fashion editor, I can never completely resign myself to boring basics and drab cold-weather gear. Interesting accessories are one way to liven things up, but I'm looking to make a few more dramatic changes. Enter the five pieces I'm calling my transformational capsule to add some much-needed variety to my collection of winter clothes.
Ultimately, they include staples and trends that are a bit more exciting, versatile, and, most of all, affordable. I spend nearly every waking hour scanning for clothes online, but for this, I really didn't need to look far. I found everything I needed within Target's new drop of winter pieces. Click ahead to discover everything I'm adding to give my closet a boost this season.
Since amping up my winter clothes is the goal, it made complete sense to start with my coats. As much as I love a classic wool topper, it's just not as commanding as a cool puffer or printed coat. The assortment of outerwear below is basically guaranteed to garner compliments.
Elevated trousers have been on my winter wish list, but it's taken a while to find the right pair. Sharp trousers do so much to make your outfit look put-together with minimal effort. They really are the ultimate sartorial shortcut. All of the pants below are great, and the high-rise pair, in particular, is a fashion-girl favorite.
I'm actively saying no to regular sweaters as of now—statement sweaters are all I can think about. What makes a sweater a part of the latter? Details like big buttons, eye-catching cutouts, and vivid patterns.
Faux leather is pretty much a given during this time of year, but admittedly, my own collection of winter clothes could use more sleek leather pieces to amp things up. I especially love this two-piece matching set and plan on buying it in both colors for a quick special-event 'fit.
I've long been crushing on maxi dresses, and in the midst of chilly days, they're more than cute. They're also functional. The longer length exudes more drama than a midi dress, and it's super easy to dress it up with a pair of flashy boots.
