Affordable Winter Wardrobe Staples

Affordable Winter Wardrobe Staples

Get excited because the time has (already) come for winter fashion! Even though fall doesn’t really exist here in Chicago, winter sure does and she comes in full force. Which is why it’s so important to have some of those classic winter pieces. Things can get pretty hectic around this time of year as the weather gets rough and school gets even rougher, so having simple, easy staple pieces on hand can make life a little easier. As my gift to you, I’ve scoured the the internet for all the best finds, at some really affordable prices (all under $100!!). Get pumped because there are SO many boots and winter accessories coming your way.

***Warning you are about to see A LOT of black boots***


ASOS. Need I say more? A one stop shop for literally anything you could ever want, um yes sign me up! Students get a 10% discount on every purchase, and the sales run large and frequent. You'll be able to find some ASOS brand things for cheap as well as other higher end brands like Moschino at a significant discount, so really there’s something for everyone.

So I’m not even completely sure how Nasty Gal makes money because they are literally always having a 50% off everything sale (I’m not joking, always). But you won’t find me complaining about it because I’ll be too busy adding everything to my shopping cart. While the selection is smaller than that of a megastore like ASOS, I promise they have really great staple pieces, that work both for a casual or more dressed up look. And if you don’t like it, there are free returns, so you really have nothing to lose here!

And last but certainly not least, I recommend you go check out ZARA. While a lot of their stuff can be a little pricier than the other retailers I recommended, they still have a lot to offer for around the same price point. Sadly ZARA does not have any student discount at the moment, but there are sales, so if you’re really eyeing some boots, definitely be on the look out!

And since winter isn’t complete (or bearable) without some warm accessories, I've found some great options for when you’re gearing up to face the cold.

Hopefully you’ve found at least one piece that you like or at least now have three great places to find affordable winter staples. As we enter the colder season I wish you luck; may it be mild (probably not), and make sure to keep warm!
