"I love black ankle boots for winter because they look good with absolutely everything. These ones have a bit of a squared toe and a retro chunky heel, which makes them a little more special and just what I'm looking for this winter."

"This is the perfect layering piece for winter! A knit vest like this would look great over a tight turtleneck. It's also the perfect piece for dressing down a festive dress. And also it's giving me some major 'old Céline' vibes."

"Totême's Paros trousers are a bold alternative to the everyday black trousers. These are the kind of trousers that make a statement while still keeping the look chic and effortless. I would wear these with a bold print turtleneck."

"I love to layer, and not just wearing one outerwear piece via a coat and sweater in the winter. Oversize blazers allow me to do that with a lot of layering since they are not that thick but they give the look and feel of a coat."

"There's already so much is happening with the clothes in the winter, so a mini bag would be a perfect complement to such a look."

"Any type of accessory, but especially sunglasses, is needed to complete any look and make it cooler."

“I can see myself wearing this bag every day. Its classic shape and neutral color works with pretty much everything in my wardrobe, and transitions well from day to night, which is ideal because there’s nothing more tedious than having to change your purse when running late in the mornings.”

“Where I live, jeans are most practical for the work week, which I’ll elevate with accessories or a statement top when I have important meetings. Personally, I’ve found few as timeless, flattering or comfortable as Khaite jeans. I currently have my eye on this style.”

“This mule is perfect for those days when you’re looking to add a little personality to an otherwise boring outfit. Designed in collaboration with Colombian designer Johanna Ortiz, they add color and texture in a chic, tasteful way.”

"This faux-fur coat is all I want to keep me warm this winter!"

"My obsession with mini bags continues, so I definitely want to get this one from Gucci."

"I'm in love with these flats. They look so cute and comfy."

"After several seasons, I still love my denim jacket. They're a great layering piece but can feel a bit cold at times due to the nature of denim. I love that trucker/shearling denim jackets are returning because it's both on trend and warm."

"Combat and lace-up boots are on my radar for a change this year because I'm looking for something a bit more practical and sturdy for the winter."

"Corduroy is all the craze at the moment, and it's for good reason. I'm stocking up on a couple of corduroy bottoms in different colors this winter because with your jacket covering the top part of your outfits, these make the perfect piece for layering textures."

"Since Mumbai does not really have a winter ever, I try to make myself feel better about it by playing with winter colors and tones with my wardrobe and makeup. I am still into earthy hues for the season and will try to transition these tones into the cooler months as well."

"I love styling my turtleneck tops with a corduroy skirt or even a flowy midi skirt."

"I'd wear the above turtleneck with a cropped moto jacket like this Zara one. I call it dressing for the winter but still appropriate for Mumbai weather."
