The Best Winter Staples to Buy Now

When shopping for the best winter staples, there are three key things to look for: something to keep you warm, a piece that offers ample versatility, and items that can withstand the test of time. That might sound like a lofty demand for one piece of clothing, but there are several winter staples that deliver on all three needs. 

Take the ever enduring allure of a camel coat, for example. Wearing one on an icy day feels as comforting as a warm hug. It’s also an all-around hero for its ability to work with every outfit, from fancy dresses to casual sweatsuits. And, most importantly, it will never go out of style, so you can pull it out year after year. The same goes for a knee-high boot, stretchy black pants, and a thermal base layer. In addition to being cozy classics, they can anchor any day or night ensemble during the winter. What more could you want from your wardrobe?
