| Style Staples To See You Through The End Of Winter! |

We're heading into the final weeks of Winter and before we prepare to store our beloved cosy coats away for the milder months, it's time to start curating the last few show-stopping Winter looks. So for today's post, I'll be sharing my crucial outfit components for these final Winter days.

1) A Show-Stopping Coat // 
I couldn't survive the Winter months without a cosy coat - or ten *wink wink* - and one that I've been reaching for a lot recently is, what I like to call my 'Blair Waldorf coat'. To me, this coat emanates luxury and elegance which is what BW is renowned for. During the reign of Gossip Girl, she wore a lot of structured coats like this and they made each of her Winter outfits show-stopping. If I had to guess, I'd say that all of the coats she donned came with a hefty price tag but my coat, of course, is an affordable high street pick. I bought it in Zara a few years ago for around €50 but there's a good selection of sophisticated Blair Waldorf-esque coats available on the high street at present. Take this Asos coat, for example, the formal fit of the coat, the slightly flared out bottom half and the faux fur neckline detail all combine to form an elegant lady-like coat that makes a statement like Blair's style.

2) Faux Fur //
As the cold weather is starting to ease off a bit, I've decided to swap my chunky oversized scarves for a faux fur stole. Something like this adds an extra layer to keep you cosy but it gives you a bit more breathing room than the chunky scarves we're used to wearing in the depths of Winter. Choosing a white piece like this one will create a light aura within your outfit whilst the fur detail maintains a Wintery element, so you're representing both seasons in your look. 

3) Block Heel Boots //
Block heel boots are a very versatile piece that can be brought forward to each season bar Summer. Some of our Spring days are still quite chilly so a good pair of block heel boots will keep you cosy without causing your feet to sweat buckets, the way a fleece-lined pair of boots or over-the-knee boots would. Again, opting for soft hues will prepare your look for the Spring months. This Asos embroidered pair would also be ideal for adding a Spring statement to any Winter look. 

4) White or Cream Jeans //
At this stage of the year, I like to start incorporating some Spring touches into my outfits and an effective way to do this is by sporting a pair of white jeans with your Winter ensemble. White jeans can be worn in Winter also but as we head into this transitioning period I'll be sporting them more than ever!
