You might wish to remain in denial, but winter is coming, and as the saying goes, if you fail to prepare, then you need to be prepared to fail. You can apply this sentiment to many things in life, and your wardrobe is undoubtedly one of them. Before you know it, temperatures will plummet to single digits, and the last thing you want is to be caught out when they do. This is why I’ve taken time out to assemble an edit of non-negotiable and totally classic winter basics for you, to ensure you’re well and truly ready for the colder months.

However, I’m willing to bet there are some gaps in your winter clothing collection—even I have some in mine. As such, I’ve outlined every need-to-own essential for you, along with some chic shopping options, too.
