Winter Wardrobe Staples

Stack of cozy knitted winter sweaters

Stack of cozy knitted winter sweatersWinter is definitely hitting its stride here in the Boston, MA area, and each day we welcome ice in the morning, we miss the unusually warm weather from just before Christmas. If you’re looking to add a bit of life into your wardrobe, Closet & Storage Concepts have you covered. Consider stocking up or switching out your old and worn out items.


Bundle up with a scarf. Choose one that’s made of a fine wool or alpaca-blend for a truly long-lasting winter staple. Chunky knits are a great option this time of year and definitely enhance an outfit. If you’re looking for an alternative, try an oversized option and drape it like a shawl. For those of you who normally wear solids or lean towards a minimalist wardrobe, a classic check or plaid can be a great way to add dimension. To keep your scarf collection in check, utilize under the bed storage to swap out seasonal items or try your hand at a DIY scarf hanger.


Hats are another way you can stay warm this winter; they’re stylish, too. With a multitude of sizes and styles, you’ll be sure to find one for every day of the week. Choose from a beanie or a wide-brimmed fedora to fit your mood. Stow them in a box near the top of your closet system to keep them from being trampled or damaged on the floor.


From a fun leopard print to a classic riding boot there’s a boot for everyone. It’s a sure way to keep your toes warm and is the perfect companion for all of your winter outfits. Don’t forget to apply a treatment to protect your boots from the Boston chill (and salted sidewalks!). Use adjustable shelves in your closet to easily adapt between tall boots and flat sandals; as the season changes, your closet does too.


A good jacket is sure to see you through a number of winters. Those made of a wool-blend are best at insulating and can look great in a number of occasions. Parkas, pea coats, and down jackets are great winter staples and can be great for those casual weekend outings.


Speaking of layering up, long-sleeves are a must. Get rid of the tattered versions you have worn to death from last winter and upgrade your staples. Replacement turtlenecks and sweaters are waiting for you. Abide by the one-in, one-out rule to keep your closet from bursting at the seams.

Statement Jewelry

Brighten up your day, and outfit, with a well-placed accessory. Statement necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are a great way to bring an otherwise boring outfit to life. Use jewelry inserts to protect your pieces and make it easy to find them when getting dressed in the morning.

A Festive Nail

Sure the holidays are over, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to the glitter. Opt for a bright nail and sparkly nail to brighten up your day from the winter blues.
