Why Knowing What to Wear in Winter 2024 Matters

Let’s start with the importance of knowing what to wear in winter 2024 in the first place. Winter used to follow a more predictable pattern. But we witness more unexpected temperature variations and weather anomalies than ever in today’s world. 

One week may bring a frigid cold, while the next feels surprisingly mild. Adapting to these climate trends means being prepared for anything that winter 2024 might throw your way.

But, it’s also about balancing fashion and function. Winter clothing should offer you the best of both worlds: warmth with style. Gone are the days when you had to sacrifice one for the other. Today, fashion meets function seamlessly.

And contrary to popular belief, building a winter capsule wardrobe is not just about keeping up with the latest trends. It's about choosing items that can be mixed and matched to create various outfits for different occasions. 

That’s exactly what we’ll do below as we walk you through what to wear in winter 2024 before guiding you through how to build a winter capsule wardrobe here at the Reset!

Outerwear That Stands Out: Jackets and Coats We Love This Season

What to Wear in Winter

A standard sweater won’t be enough to keep you warm as winter’s chill really sets in. You need an extra outer layer to not only trap warmth in, but to add another layer of style to your wardrobe this winter season. Here are a few jackets and coats that you need in your regular rotation:

  • Double Breasted Blazer: The classic double-breasted blazer is making a stylish comeback, and our lightweight version adds a modern twist. With an oversized silhouette and a devil-may-care attitude, this blazer is perfect for any season. Pair it with matching trousers or wear it with jeans for a casually chic look. Roll up the sleeves for an extra touch of style.
  • Vegan Leather Trench: This timeless essential gets a fresh update with sleek Italian vegan leather that provides both a luxe feel and subtle stretch for comfort. The belted trench design adds a polished edge to any outfit, while functional side pockets and inside lining ensure quality and comfort.
  • Vegan Leather Bomber: The perfect choice for a layer that exudes attitude. Crafted from super supple vegan leather with a hint of stretch, it's as flattering as it is comfortable. Whether you're indoors or outdoors, running errands, or going on a date night, this bomber adds just the right amount of edge to your wardrobe.
  • Double Wool Midi Coat: Experience the epitome of cold-weather classics with this coat. Crafted from luxurious double-faced wool, every stitch is hand-finished to perfection. The open-front style adds a relaxed vibe to this elevated essential, making it suitable for both dressing up and down. Its mid-thigh length fits well over a turtleneck sweater, ensuring you'll wear it season after season.
  • Boyfriend Coat: This coat combines superbly flattering style with a relaxed fit, skimming mid-thigh for an unbelievably easy and chic look. Wear it open and keep your hands cozy in the two front pockets. Made from a gorgeous cashmere-wool blend, it's one of our warmest toppers, perfect for daily wear and adding an extra layer of sophistication to your wardrobe this winter.

Accessory Accents: Scarves, Gloves, and More

No winter capsule wardrobe is complete without some accessories to tie your look together. These can add an extra layer of coziness while simultaneously adding flair to your outfits:

  • Scarves: You can choose from a variety of styles, including cozy knit infinity scarves, elegant silk wraps, or oversized blanket scarves. These not only keep you warm but also serve as statement pieces.
  • Gloves: Options range from classic leather styles to touchscreen-friendly varieties, ensuring your hands stay snug while allowing you to use your devices without hassle.
  • Hats: Whether you prefer trendy beanies, timeless berets, or chic fedoras, the right hat can elevate your winter look while providing extra warmth.

Don’t Forget the Footwear: Boots and Beyond

Selecting the right footwear is essential for both comfort and style during the winter season. Boots are winter wardrobe essentials or women and men alike - they’re what you’ll wear most of the season depending on where you live.

You can opt for ankle boots, knee-high boots, or over-the-knee boots, depending on your personal style. Look for features like insulation and waterproofing to keep your feet warm and dry, especially on snowy or rainy days.

Consider adding boot grips or ice cleats to your footwear collection to ensure traction on slippery surfaces. Whether you're navigating snow-covered streets or stepping out for a cozy evening, the right footwear completes your winter look with both style and functionality.

How to Build a Winter Wardrobe

You’re probably eager to start piecing your winter capsule wardrobe together after getting a glimpse of the winter wardrobe essentials we’ve shared above - not so fast, though. 

Let’s talk about how to build a winter wardrobe that serves its purpose year after year, elevating your style and comfort simultaneously. Here’s what you need to prioritize as you start shopping…

Staple Pieces: Identifying Your Non-Negotiables

Staple pieces are the essentials that every wardrobe should include for the chilly winter season. These are versatile items that can be mixed and matched to create a variety of stylish outfits. 

Consider staples like a classic wool coat, a well-fitting pair of jeans, and a selection of cozy sweaters for the colder months.

The Color Palette: Choosing a Scheme That Works

Selecting a color palette for your winter wardrobe is essential for ensuring that your pieces can be easily mixed and matched. 

Neutrals like black, gray, and camel are timeless choices that work well with almost any outfit. You can then add pops of color with accessories like scarves or gloves to keep your look fresh and interesting.

Incorporating Personal Flair into Your Winter Capsule Wardrobe

While staples and neutrals form the core of your wardrobe, don't forget to infuse it with your personal style. You can use our list of winter wardrobe essentials for women as a template and adjust it to fit your unique vision.

Add statement pieces or unique accessories that reflect your individuality. Whether it's a bold patterned scarf, a vintage-inspired coat, or a favorite pair of boots, these personal touches will make your winter outfits feel uniquely yours.

Care and Maintenance: Keeping Your Pieces Pristine

Just as with our guide on women’s fall wardrobe essentials, the goal is to rely on your new winter capsule wardrobe season after season so you don’t have to update it on a yearly basis! That means you need to take care of your pieces. 

Winter garments, especially those made from delicate fabrics like wool or cashmere, require special care to stay in pristine condition. Follow care instructions carefully, whether it's dry cleaning your coat or hand washing your sweaters. 

Regularly check for any signs of wear and tear, such as loose threads or pilling, and address them promptly to keep your winter pieces looking their best season after season.
