12 Items You Should Have in Your Fall and Winter Wardrobe

As the seasons change, so do fashion choices. Too many people put away their stylish summer wardrobe and slide into the warm, generic layers, assuming they don’t have any other options. However, nobody said you have to sacrifice your fashion sense while bundling up for the cold. Here are 12 essential items you need for fall and winter. We’ll focus on staples that are as cool as the weather while keeping you comfortable.

The Classic White Button-Down Shirt
A classic white button-down shirt is the foundation of so many clothing styles. You can combine it with denim jeans and flats for that European chic look. Or combine it with your skirt or suit for work. When things get cold, you can pull a lovely sweater over it or put on a wrap-around scarf.

A Plaid Button-Down Shirt
Plaid is possibly the most autumn print out, unless someone out there has an idea for making a pumpkin-spice shirt. Plaid button-down shirts come in an amazing array of color combinations and styles. You can pair them with jeans or work pants. And you could supplement it with a pull-over sweater or wrap-around scarf.

Skinny Jeans
Skinny jeans have a number of benefits when winter hits. Their streamlined silhouette lets you put several layers on top of them for warmth without becoming too bulky. You can wear them with flat heel boots or high heels, a leather jacket or silk drape top. You’ll look great if you wear a long coat or leg warmers over them.

Cashmere Sweaters
Cashmere crewneck sweaters are a chic item you can dress up or down depending on the occasion. This type of sweater readily pairs with a collared shirt underneath it. You could easily pair a wrap-around scarf with it. You really need one of these in addition to the chunky knit sweaters that keep you warm all season long.

Turtleneck Tops
Turtleneck tops are a good alternative to crew neck sweaters. A St-Laurent turtleneck will keep your neck nice and warm. The look can be paired with a sweater (even a crewneck one). You can wear them on their own with jeans or pair it with a sleeveless dress.

Knitted Jumper Dress
A knitted jumper dress is essentially a sweater so long that it counts as a dress, and it is one of the most versatile essentials in your closet regardless of which style you buy. You can find knit jumper dresses that end above the knee, below the knee and almost go down to the ground. Form-fitting and relaxed styles are available. You can wear them with tights or over-the-knee boots to keep your legs warm.

A Fleece Hoodie
Fleece hoodies aren’t for the gym anymore. Fleece hoodies have become a warm, fashionable outerwear. And if you want to take things up a notch, brands like Off-White offer a wide variety of hoodies and sweaters that you can choose from. And you could always layer your hoodie with a Saint Laurent T-shirt and jeans for that extra oomph.

A Statement Coat
A statement coat is the opposite of the classic black or white winter coat. They’re a great way to stand out when wearing a simple or layered outfit. If you don’t know where to start, SSENSE are home to some of the most luxurious designers and offer a variety of statement coats, whether you are looking for a classic wool coat, a designer Chloé trench coat or an off the wall Balenciaga jacket, don’t be afraid to look around and see if you can find one that suits your personal style.

A Leather Jacket
A good leather jacket is a staple for any winter wardrobe. It makes any outfit seem edgy and hip. You can put it on over a T-shirt and jeans for a casual look. Or wear it over a sweater and pants to take your outfit to a new level. If a leather jacket is too much for you, consider getting a cargo jacket instead. These jackets with military style details turn T-shirts and jeans into a chic look.

Blanket Wrap Scarf
A blanket wrap scarf is far more than a standard scarf. These wrap-around scarves are bigger and better in every way. You can throw it over your shoulder or wrap it around your body multiple times. Once you’re inside or things warm up, you can take it off.

Ankle Boots
Ankle boots are a wardrobe staple. They’re versatile and timeless. Ankle boots are an ideal choice for footwear if you’re wearing a dress and a pair of tights. You can also wear them with jeans, and they won’t get in the way of layerable leggings. A side benefit of ankle boots is that they can give your outfit a pop of color even if they can’t see anything else under your long overcoat.

Layerable Leggings
You can’t get through the winter comfortably without layerable leggings. These leggings can keep your legs warm under a skirt. They can be worn under jeans for an extra layer of insulation. Or combine them with a short skirt and sweater or sweater dress.

Fall and winter can be a fashion lover’s delight if you know how to combine your need to keep warm with your desire to look cool. Stock up on these essential items and you’ll be able to achieve the perfect look no matter the weather.
