Helsinki Sweater - Styling a chunky turtleneck sweater is all about choosing the right items to pair it with. You want to look flattering, not like you’re smothered in a ball of fabric. For the most classic look, tuck this sweater into skinny jeans, or faux leather leggings. Throw on white sneakers or black ankle booties as you head out the door. Boom—one and done.
Anderson Jacket - If your favorite blouse and jacket partner together and had a baby - viola - it would create the Shacket! It’s the best of both worlds, it’s light-weight, versatile, non-bulky and a must-have layering piece. This trend is definitely not going away anytime soon - so what are you waiting for, grab one for you, your bestie and your sister!
Kaya Jacket - Add to your coat collection with this feminine single-breasted lapel collared coat. It may not be your typical color for fall or winter but you should try it before you dismiss this jacket. Step out of your comfort zone of the black, greys and brown color palettes and try adding a little touch of blush! Plus - adding color never hurt anybody.
Valletta Jumper - After all, looking stylish during the winter can often be a challenge. Staying warm is the first order of business, and so, finding ways to look cute is sometimes pushed to the backburner. But not today, with the ever so versatile relaxed fit Valletta jumper is one keep for any season.

Lucille Midi Dress - This sophisticated long sleeved waist-defined dress is a statement maker. Achieve an expensive-looking style without breaking the bank. Simple black heels are the chicest and easiest way to style it. But if you want a little bit more flare, pair with black glitter heels to transition from day to night! Beware: your BFFs or sisters will want to take this from you. So just buy them one too! .
Faye Ribbed Tank Dress - This mock neck fitted ribbed tank dress is a great transitional piece to pair with sneakers or knee high leather boots. Basics are what you need to go back to when you can’t keep up with all the new trends or simply get too overwhelmed in the world of fashion.
Sofia Midi Skirt - While a silk midi dress is still popular among fashion goers, its younger sis (aka, the slip skirt) has taken center stage. As it turns out, thanks to new patterns, prints, and designs emerging, figuring out how to wear a slip skirt is easier than ever. It's a classic staple that dares you to try different ensembles you’d think will never go together and be surprised. We bet Carrie Bradshaw owns a closet full of them and would totally approve of you purchasing this piece!
Knit Loungewear Set (Black) - It's hard to think of anything better than just sitting on the couch with a messy bun, watching Friends reruns and binge-eating your favorite snacks. Although your sweatpants and old high school tees will do just fine, opt for a cozy lounge set to truly enhance the unwinding and comfy experience. This monochromatic ensemble isn’t too bulky or baggy, so you can switch it up from sleep all day wear to go-to errands wear.
Zanthe Jacket - Shackets are everywhere and it is totally blowing up our social media feeds and we’re here for it & you should be too! It’s the perfect layering piece and luxe way to glam up your look.
Pearce Color Block Cardigan - Let's say you're only going to buy one cardigan this year.
