Winter is one of the more difficult times of dressing for me. Gone are the days of throwing on a chic frock and slides and heading out the door. Now, an outfit requires practicality—you know, to brave the cold—meaning plenty of (chic) layers. From sweaters and coats to boots and pants, assembling a full outfit is no simple feat, and if you're new to a cold area and starting from scratch, you've certainly got your work cut out for you.
While winter dressing definitely provides its challenges, this year I'm choosing to look at it as an opportunity to expand my sartorial limits. Using Coach's winter pieces as inspiration, I'm stocking up on timeless bags, practical shoes, head-turning coats, and cozy sweaters and mixing, matching and layering as often as I can. Build your own winter wardrobe with the below Coach essentials now.
