While you may want to splurge a bit on some of the newest styles of the season, it’s also a good idea to invest in some classic pieces for your wardrobe that will always be on-trend. In fact, you may want to add some tried-and-true essentials to your closet first and then supplement with some extra pieces based on this winter’s emerging trends.
From the perfect camel coat to cozy, chunky sweaters, here’s a look at seven timeless items to add to your winter shopping list.
#1 – Faux-Fur Coats
If you’ve been watching the 2018 autumn/winter runways, you’ve probably seen plenty of faux-fur. Although faux-fur is definitely on-trend this season, it’s a trend that is going to be around for a long time, especially as more high-end designers take a strict stance against the use of real fur. A faux-fur coat can be styled in many ways. Pair it with skinny jeans and low boots or top a frilly dress with a faux-fur coat to add some edge.
#2 – Cardigans
From cute cropped cardigans to cozy shawl cardigans, adding a few cardis to your closet gives you the ability to multiply your outfits. A classic cardigan is always on-trend for the winter months, and you can style cardigans in so many ways. Try combining skinny trousers with an oversized cardigan. Button up the cardigan and tuck it into leather pants. Pair it with a pair of jeans, a trendy tee, and boots.

#3 – A Camel Coat
A camel coat is always in style, and it’s not only been seen on current stars like Cameron Diaz, but it graced the shoulders of old-Hollywood stars like Katherine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, and Grace Kelly. Camel coats offer versatility, making it easy to style the chic coat with all the newest winter trends. Whether you’re headed to work, going out with friends on the weekend, or enjoying a night on the town, a camel coat will be the perfect piece to finish any look.
#4 – Slim Turtlenecks for Layering
According to Glamour, turtlenecks are an elegant staple, and we know why. Those slim turtlenecks aren’t just perfect for creating beautiful layers, they’re also super soft and cozy. While they stand alone beautifully, they pair well with sweaters and jackets, and they offer timeless warmth and style.
#5 – Ankle Boots
Ankle boots are always on-trend – in fact, they were a hot trend throughout the summer, too. The versatile ankle boot is one piece of footwear that you can wear with everything in your winter wardrobe, whether you’re rocking jeans, dressy slacks, a dress, or a skirt.
Available in so many styles, such as cowboy style ankle boots, sexy stilettos, tough combat styles, and eye-catching metallic, you’ll want to add several pairs to your winter footwear collection.

#6 – Blazers
There aren’t many items in your closet that can take you from a morning meeting at the office to last call out with friends, but a blazer can do it all. It’s perfect with skirts and pants, and whether you go for boxy, tapered, or longer styles, the classic lines of a quality blazer are a tried-and-true addition to any winter wardrobe. And if you’re really brave, you can follow after celebrities and models like Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid, and Reese Witherspoon and rock a blazer like a dress.
#7 – Chunky Sweaters
It’s the warm, cozy feeling and versatility of chunky sweaters that make them a winter must-have. While the styles and prints may change with the seasons, a chunky sweater is always in style. They always look perfect with your favorite skinny jeans for a casual look and pairing them with leggings lets you stay cozy in comfort. For a fun, edgy look, pair with a mini skirt or slip one over a sheet dress for a sexy, chic look.
