Winter brings the opportunity to mix different textures together. Here I am wearing this chic Topshop faux fur vest with my favorite faux leather pants from Blank NYC. This vest is light-weight enough to wear under a winter coat. I finished off the look with edgy studded booties from Topshop. All of these pieces are well priced!

Every woman should have a comfy boyfriend sweater. I love this super soft one from Rag & Bone.

Here's the total look including a Pashli bag by Philip Lim. I like it in black and in red if you want to add a pop of color for the winter season!

This faux fur coat from Zadig & Voltaire is another versatile piece that can be dressed up or down. Wear during the day with a sweater and jeans or at night with a dress and heels.

Bella Dahl makes amazingly soft flannels that are feminine and perfect for layering. I love how this pattern complements a monochromatic look. This Current/Elliot 'Skinny Mini' leather skirt is a great go-to piece when you are not in the mood for jeans or a dress. A leather skirt can be worn with tights and high boots for cold winter days (and used again in the Spring with bare legs as shown).

I decided to "top off" this outfit with a wide brimmed fedora from Rag & Bone. Adding a hat enhances any look and can make your favorite outfit feel completely new.
