With the start of a new year comes the desire for a wardrobe refresh. Since it’s never too early to start planning for the season ahead, we’re highlighting some of the best pieces out there that deserve a spot in your closet. Not only are these perfectly on trend for winter, they all have a timeless feel that guarantees you’ll wear them for years to come.
From the cozy hat you’ll wear all season to statement-making leather boots to the perfect party bag, below are the 15 items you should buy right now.
Chunky boots are arguably the biggest shoe trend at the moment, and this pair from Chloe is simply dreamy. This combat/rain boot hybrid features that thick sole we’re all craving right now in a practical waterproof material. Boots that are both stylish and functional are rare, so do yourself a favor and snag these before they sell out again.
Of course Reformation has all of your cool-girl dress needs covered. This silky fabric has the perfect amount of shine and comes in fun pop colors like magenta and lilac, ensuring you’ll always be the one standing out. Plus the classic cut is ultra-chic, making it a closet staple.
If you feel like you’ve seen this jacket on Instagram, it’s because you probably have. The cult-favorite Mango quilted jacket is popular for a reason—it features the cloud coat quilt pattern that’s right on trend in the quintessential army green shade. The slightly oversize fit allows you to layer underneath and pairs well with virtually everything, so this is one of those jackets you’ll find yourself reaching for on repeat.
Oversized scarves are trending this season and we’re 100% here for it—stay warm and look chic? Say no more. This particular scarf from Acne Studios is made from ultra-soft wool and has that touchable texture that elevates any outfit. Plus the neutral color ensures you can layer it on top of virtually everything you wear this winter.
This is the unofficial season of the puffer, so prepare to see the quilted texture on everything from coats to boots. But the puffer piece that’s particularly trendy right now is the vest, and this affordable option from Zara nails it. The black colorway is versatile as can be and the fitted silhouette makes it both flattering and functional. Throw this on over your long sleeve tees or sweatshirts for a laidback winter look that also keeps you insulated in the colder temps.
Meet your new favorite night out top—this second skin turtleneck from Ulla Johnson is equal parts fun and sophisticated. The neutral pattern is bold yet elevated, and it looks just as chic worn alone as it will under an oversize blazer or leather jacket.
Cut-outs are another major trend that shows no signs of slowing down. This cute Paige sweater feels classic while the exposed shoulder adds a touch of sexiness to it—perfect for date night, evenings with friends, and even dinner parties at home. Whether you pair it with jeans, trousers, or leather, this one is sure to garner compliments.
The perfect sweater dress does exist. This chunky cable knit number from Line & Dot is everything one looks for in a sweater dress—thick weave texture, gorgeous neutral color, and maxi length to keep you warm and cozy. Paired with sleek leather knee-high boots and a belted waist, yes please!
Outerwear typically leans toward the pricey side, so when you find a quality coat at an affordable price point, you act. This rich chocolate coat from H&M looks infinitely more expensive than it is and features all the makings of a timeless winter coat you’ll wear for years. The tie detail adds a flattering touch, cinching your waist and creating a feminine silhouette around all of your layers.
Did someone say statement bag? This bag is pure fun. Between the crystal embellishment, slouchy silhouette, and knotted handle details, it’s hard to know where to begin. This bag is sure to become the MVP of your wardrobe, but will accompany you far beyond that—think nights out, birthdays, bachelorettes, and everything in between.
Fuzzy textures are adorning everything this winter, from bags to shoes to coats. But one of the most stylish and practical ways to get in on the trend is with a teddy bucket hat. This cozy accessory will keep your head warm all winter while adding the perfect pop of texture to any outfit.
It doesn’t get any chicer than this quarter-zip sweater from Weekend Stories. The silhouette oozes sophistication and the zip detail nails the collegiate trend without being too literal—It’s a classic piece you’ll keep forever. Worn alone or with the collar peeking out over a coat, it’s the ultimate in timeless style.
Just, wow. The pointed toe and sleek fit are classic and modern all at once, and the rich rusty brown color looks so luxe. They’re fitted enough to wear under jeans, dresses, trousers and skirts, making them one of the more versatile boot styles you could buy. Talk about a shoe you’ll wear forever.
Another gorgeous way to get in on the fuzzy texture trend, this faux fur Lamarque coat is the epitome of cozy. The length and fabric will keep you warm all season long, and the rich cream color is versatile enough to wear over everything. The tortoise buttons and belt buckle closures at the sleeves add an elevated touch that make this coat feel ultra-expensive.
This one is just to treat yourself to a little luxury. We’re all (hopefully!) spending more time at home relaxing this time of year so a pair of soft, cozy joggers is calling your name. Not only are these ones comfortable, but the taupe textured color looks luxe enough to wear these outside if you so choose. Curling up in these is a form of self-care.
