Rather than trying to wear the fall/winter fashion trends straight off the runway, we’re reinterpreting them for the lifestyle we’ve been adjusting to. That means everything we invest in has a cozy element. Our boots, sweaters, and outerwear are versatile pieces that we can layer over slips or feathered PJ sets. Even though we’re still in tune to mood-boosting colors that seem to be taking over our Instagram feeds or popular silhouettes (see: cutout sweater dresses), we’re not shopping for anything right now that feels too high-fashion or unwearable.
That’s why you’re going to love the 15 essentials we’ve curated ahead. We’re offering you advice on how you might wear them when you’re lounging around before a Zoom call indoors and how you can style them for walks, outdoor dining, or running errands this winter. From the puffer vest to furry slippers with structured soles that will actually support you on a stroll, you’ll definitely want to invest in a few of these basics, if not more. Scroll through to determine what’s missing from your wardrobe, and shop some of our favorite versions of these must-have trends to get you through the season in style.
