Head-to-Toe Winter Basics Perfect for Cozying Up and Wearing Out

Maybe it's because I'm a California girl through and through, but I find winter dressing to be slightly overwhelming. I get claustrophobic in too many layers and the chunkiest of sweaters, and don't even get me started on the endless process of peeling on and off of clothes when leaving and entering buildings. To keep the winter blues at bay, I like to keep a capsule wardrobe filled with warm basics I'll welcome wearing over and over again. This year, that looks like comfortable and stylish bottoms, classic sweaters, and trendy knit sets. My favorite options are waiting for you below.

All the cuteness of layering without the bunching.

The deep zip and oversize collar make this pullover stand out from the rest.

All the blazers, puffers, and half-zip sweaters in your closet will be fighting to be worn with these joggers.

You can wear this cardigan with the matching knit pants below, your favorite jeans, and wide-leg trousers.

Have you ever seen a pair of knit pants so chic?

Like every good set, these pieces will look just as good together as they will when worn as separates.

The number of long-sleeve tops you could pair with this vest is endless.

Honestly, the only pair of denim you need this winter.
