With so many macro—and micro—trends emerging quicker than most of us can keep up with, sometimes we can find peace in investing in pieces that just work. You know that crisp white shirt you can rely on to take you from anything from a job interview to brunch? The blazer you can team with jeans that'll make you feel inevitably 30 times chicer? What about that timeless black dress that always manages to make you feel a million bucks?
Yes, we're all for embracing animal prints, the lime-green shade that's going viral and the latest cult Ganni buy, but at a time when it's difficult to get out of bed in the frigid a.m., we're looking to neutral tones and classic pieces that'll feel effortless. So join the most stylish women and scroll down to shop the best winter buys in grey, navy, beige, brown, white and, of course, black. Trust us—these pieces will never let you down on the fashion front.
It also comes in red.
Style Notes: There's no denying there's something about plain navy that looks instantly luxe. Not only does it look so good with denim, but you can mix it with other neutrals like beige to look extra chic.

Bring on the Beige
Style Notes: We reported earlier that beige is the "boring" colour that everyone is loving right now. And we're supported by the likes of stylist Hannah Lewis, along with the mass of designer and high-street pieces filtering in for spring.
