    Must-Have #1: A Big Black Wool Coat or Navy Peacoat

    Don't skimp on quality or thickness when it comes to your wear-with-everything coat.  Opt for a neutral color—black or navy—as you may end up wearing this every day. Be sure it is roomy, as it needs to fit over many layers. Ideally your coat should be able to work with dressier pieces too, so a style in a nice wool or boucle would be best.

    Must-Have #2: A Lined Army or Puffer Jacket

    This coat, which is equally as warm as the previous style, is more casual and street warrior-like. Be sure it is lined and cozy, as well as equipped with a hood and pockets.

    Must-Have #3: Fashionable All-Weather Boots

    The key to a happy winter is to have warm feet. A flat boot that is treaded and at least mid-calf high can get you from work to home, and from errand to errand. A fully functional Sorrel boot can help you brave any storm, and a cooler, more day-to-day flat boot is nice to have too.

    Must-Have #4: Cashmere Hat, Mitten and Scarf

    There is a reason cashmere is considered luxurious and is often pricy. It is super soft, warm, and comforting. Invest in a hat, pair of mittens, and a big scarf in neutral colors—like cream and taupe—and simply wear them with everything.

    Must-Have #5: Leather Pants

    Fitted leather leggings can withstand cold winds and elevate every look. Invest in some. Or a few!
