It’s no secret we love everything Alice McCall. The fashion designer (of her own namesake label) continually serves up pieces we can’t wait to add to our wardrobes—the former stylist has a knack for knowing exactly what we want to wear each season.

Now that the cold-snap finally arrived, we tracked down McCall discover the five pieces she thinks every wardrobe needs for winter. From classics, to more trend driven pieces, these small additions will make your whole wardrobe feel brand new—and better yet, can be also styled up or down.  

Keep scrolling for her top picks, and why you should give them a go.

"A great coat is a winter must-have. This season is all about the oversized look. They’re great for layering and so easy to throw over the top of any outfit as you're running out the door."  

This oversized shape gives you enough room to wear a chunky knit underneath.

"The slouchy knit is all about being comfortable while exuding an effortless sexiness."

This semi-open weave knit will keep you warm and comfortable all day.

Fire engine red NEVER goes out of style.

"I love any garment that has a dual purpose. Knit dresses can be worn on their own with thigh high boots, or on top of jeans for a chic, layered look." 

We're getting major '90s vibes from this floor-length knitted dress. 

Just add opaque tights, over-the-knee boots, and an oversized coat.

"Throw on a pair of overalls over the top of a basic stretch knit and your outfit is instantly fun, stylish and practical."
