It’s about that time when we stock up on winter essentials to get us through the colder months. In fact, perhaps it’s a little late with the weather we’ve already had this year. I had been looking around for things to add to my winter wardrobe and it got me thinking about the things that make up my winter essentials list.

You know, the items that I reach for every winter. The ones that you can invest in and wear this year and every year. When I was thinking about what items I reach for it came down to high-quality boots, a few key pieces that can be dressed up and the chunkiest of chunky knits.

I want to know if you’re plus-sized or large-chested if you wear chunky knits. A friend was saying the other day she doesn’t wear chunky knits because they add bulk. Which, I guess they do, but surely the appeal of the squishy, soft, chunky knit beats that, right? Tell me I’m not the only one. I can’t be the only one.

Speaking of tricky plus-size essentials, if you’re in the market for boots, I updated my posts about knee-high and wide-fit boots with current links. Some of the example photos may not be available, but all the stores are live and ready to sell you the new season version. Check them out. I know having a decent pair of boots is pretty essential to my winter wardrobe.

What would you have on your winter wardrobe essentials list? Seen anything in your travels that you want to share? I’ve opened the links in the comments so you can share them with us.
