We won't lie. Black Friday shopping is a sport. Between literally thousands of items going on sale in the span of 24 hours and sales happening at countless brands and retailers, the shopping holiday can be daunting at best and sometimes downright stressful. So instead of leaving you to aimlessly add items to your shopping cart come November 29, we took it upon ourselves to create the ultimate Black Friday capsule wardrobe filled with the items you'll get the most wear out of this winter.
We narrowed in on the building blocks that any winter wardrobe would pretty much starve without—things like essential puffer coats and functional winter boots—and then added in a handful of the key trends of the season, such as snakeskin print and leather separates. We may be biased, but this capsule wardrobe is foolproof. Shop it from top to bottom to refresh your entire closet at a steep discount, or score on a few key pieces you're most in need of.
You might want to go ahead and bookmark this edit as we get closer to the epic sales and reference it when you go shopping. Simply continue on to see every trend and essential and the exact item we're recommending for each.
