I 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 aimlessly adding 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 like snakeskin print and leather separates. I 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 I'm recommending for each.

Winter Essentials

We couldn't survive the winter without a solid puffer coat on hand.

This valuable wardrobe staple deserves to be in rotation 365 days of the year.

I love the idea of layering this under low-cut dresses.

Take 50% off of everything at Eloquii with code BF2019.

My black jeans get way more wear than my blue denim this time of year.

Both a trendy and functional pick this winter.

Opt for a beanie in an unexpected color.

This Acne Studios scarf is on my wishlist each winter.

Keeping warm in the winter is a full-time job—these will help.

Winter Trends

Nanushka really has the leather separates trend cornered.

Tuck your straight-leg jeans and pants into these to mirror the fashion crowd.

Take 25% off at Dear Frances with code BF25.

A statement sweater like this zebra one is the easiest way to stand out without really trying to.

I'll always say yes to snakeskin print.

Great for everyday wear or for party dressing.

Pairs well with high-waisted jeans. 

Wear this with tights and heels and you have yourself a night-out look.

Don't forget about the most important accessory for the holidays.

Gigi Hadid wears this necklace on repeat. Need I say more?

Take 25% off at Missoma.

I may or may not have already ordered this.

"Fashion trousers" are basically loosely tailored pants that fashion insiders are pausing their jeans for these days.

Let me guess, you probably needed a new pair of white sneakers.
