This week we clicked though our amazing inventory of over 500 items to select layer-friendly fashion essentials that are the building blocks of a solid, stylish wardrobe— 5 gotta-have-'em pieces that will get you through even the coldest of cold-weather seasons. Read on for more outfit ideas.

 

1. Must-Have Layering Piece: Skinny Jeans

Choose a pair of skinny jeans in a goes-with-anything color like black or dark blue and you'll be good to go. Running to Starbucks in the morning? Roll them up with a pair of booties or tuck them into a pair of boots. Picking the kids up from school? Wear them with ballet flats and a leather jacket. And if you're heading out for date night, a pair of chunky heels and a cardigan will be your go-to look. And don’t be fooled; not all skinny jeans are the same. It’s the fabric content that makes for the perfect, smooth, sexy look that doesn’t bunch up in all the wrong places (like your knees, ankles or around the tops of your boots) which is why we love Level 99  Janice Ultra Skinny Jeans in Zarah with 80% Cotton so they breathe and don’t itch, 12% Rayon for softness and a kiss of sheen, 7% Polyester and 1% Spandex for just the right amount of stretch.

2. Must-Have Layering Piece: Plaid about you

Although plaid fashions are always in vogue for fall-winter, for the 2015 season they are all the rage. Borrow a page from Kortney Kardashian’s style playbook and button up a Rails Hunter Button Down Shirt in Sky over a tank top. This easy-to-style shirt is not only the ideal layering piece, it also works almost any time of year. As the temperature drops, you can wear it as base under a sweater, hoodie or down vest. The versatility of button downs are endless and with dozens of colorful patterns to choose from - Rails plaid button downs easily made our top 5 list.

 

3. Must-Have Layering Piece: Cardigans

From October to March, your outerwear is the first thing that everyone sees, so why not make a statement? Cardigans effortlessly create that polished put together look, or a more sophisticated vibe. Whether they are short or long, you can wear them over any style of top and you can go from the office to the football game by simply changing your dress slack for jeans. Shop Opal’s Sen Gabby Maxi Cardigan In Marengo is a must have fashion essential this winter and would make a great Christmas gift!

4. Must-Have Layering Piece: Blazers

Blazers are a wardrobe classic. But this season, you could say the winter staple got a makeover, with a fresh updated look that leans a bit toward the elegant side. And what woman doesn’t want a jacket that will take us from morning to night? That’s exactly why Minka Kelly was seen wearing Pencey V Blazer in Cream. There are only a few left in stock!

 

5. Must-Have Layering Piece: Scarves


Everyone’s winter favorite. Scarves are one of the few accessories that can take any ensemble from boring to fashionable. An infinity scarf with a bold print will easily become the focal point of the most basic of outfits.  Animal print and cashmere remain the top picks during holiday gift giving season.  Celebrity picks, include the “Tolani Infinity Scarf in Leopard,” as worn by Jessica Alba. If you want to add more warmth to your outfit, I would go for the “Tolani Cashmere Scarf in Olive.” Both make great gifts as well.
