This is as straightforward as it gets. Below, you’ll find 19 winter must-haves—10 basics and 9 trends—each of which I’ve found an editor-approved version for under $100. In some cases, well under. Why? To prove that no matter your budget, you can feel refreshed for the season at hand, whether it’s by picking up one or two new pieces or doing more of a major wardrobe overhaul. Plus, it’s kind of my job—and I love perusing the internet!

So what should you expect below? Everything from my favorite $75 cashmere sweater (yes, you read that right) to boots for day and night to statement outerwear. You’ll probably see some familiar brands as well as others you might want to consider bookmarking. And even if you did all your winter shopping on Cyber Monday already, at the very least, you can use this as a tool to get your closet organized and in order. Ready to get started?

Winter Basics


I pretty much live in this sweater from November to February.


For when you don't feel like wearing a scarf but also don't want your neck to freeze.


Anyone else like to opt for a darker pair of shades in the colder months?


A good pair of black jeans will save you this season.


Bonus: Front-slit pants are perfect for showing off your shoes.


As much as I don't enjoy wearing gloves, there's no denying they're a necessity.


High socks are a must once the temperatures drop. Not only do they keep your lower legs warm, but they also protect your ankles from the irritation of ankle boots.

Utility Boots

I find that lug-sole boots with a little extra height make dressing cool in the winter a lot easier—even on snow days.
