It goes without saying that shopping for winter clothing is substantially harder than shopping for summer clothing. As we say our goodbyes to jean shorts and T-shirts, we turn to face the almost impossible task of picking out winter staples from hundreds of sweaters, jackets, leather pants, turtlenecks, scarves, boots, and more. Which is why we’ve taken the liberty of finding you the four pieces that will ultimately help you get through winter. And not just any pieces; we made sure these beauties were versatile, so they can be worn anywhere from your annual family holiday movie night to your not-so-PG party with friends. Consider them investments, because we really don’t see how you would get through winter without them.
There is so much to be said about these perfect leather boots that we’re not even sure where to begin. The laces! The tassles! The chocolatey suede! There is no reason that you shouldn’t be wearing these every day this season (unless your day is filled with building snowmen, of course). They always say the accessory makes the outfit, and this is no exception. Wear these ankle boots with jeans, a pleated skirt, pretty much whatever you please, and you’ll be turning heads everywhere you go.
We’re starting to notice a trend with Balenciaga this year: they’re giving us epic jackets on jackets on jackets. Oversized, off-the-shoulder, bright colors or neutral colors—you name it, they’re doing it. We don’t see why you wouldn’t channel your inner Rihanna with this off-the-shoulder shearling piece. No doubt it’ll keep you nice and warm, all the while making you look almost unbearably cool.
Classic and cozy. It’d be tough to argue that you can go wrong with a cable-knit sweater, a piece that has been considered a wardrobe staple since, uh, forever. We’re giving all our praise to Marant for putting a great twist on a classic with this one’s chic red details. Throw on this oversized masterpiece with your favorite pair of jeans and voilà, a stylish outfit in two minutes’ time.
Velvet: the material that we’re buying absolutely everything in this season. We thought we’d reached peak velvet, until we laid eyes on *this* wrap skirt. It looks so welcoming that we added it to our shopping cart before we even checked if our credit card could handle it.
