Winter Essentials

Let's say, hypothetically, you only need 10 essential pieces in your closet this winter. Mind you, we don't mean you can have just 10 items and nothing else (we're not insane). We mean compile a seasonal collection of items that can update your wardrobe as well as giving you layering options for the temperamental weather. Here are the 10 winter fashion basics to buy.

1. Dalila Trench Coat
The street style stars of Paris FW spring 2016 proved that trench coats are a wardrobe essential, rain or shine.
2. Cosima Mohair Sweater
Chunky, cozy, warm and fuzzy.  This sweater will more than earn its keep this season.
3. Gracie Maxi Dress
Just because it's bone-chillingly cold and blustery outside doesn't mean you should forgo your cute printed dresses this season.
4. Qua leather skinny pants
Rocker-style leather pants to effortlessly pair with a boyfriend sweater or designer sweatshirt.
5. Lulu beaded jeans
This season, wear your denim with a twist—sequins and beading details.
6. Statement coat
In winter, your outerwear is the most important aspect of your wardrobe so why not make a statement? A statement will add a pop of colour to any neutral or all-black outfit.
7. Holzweiler blanket wrap scarves
There are countless ways to style this cold weather accessory, either thrown carelessly over your shoulder or wrapped around multiple times.
8. Rachel Ruddick's neutral coloured handbags
Colours come and go, but neutrals never fade.
9. Valere statement jewellery
There is more than one way to make a statement than on the neckline, including bracelets, earrings, and rings.
10. Need for Tweed
The perfect trans-seasonal piece for your wardrobe
