We won't lie. Black Friday shopping is a sport. Between literally thousands of items going on sale in the span of 24 hours and sales happening at countless brands and retailers, the shopping holiday can be daunting at best and sometimes downright stressful. So instead of leaving you to aimlessly add items to your shopping cart come November 29, we took it upon ourselves to create the ultimate Black Friday capsule wardrobe filled with the items you'll get the most wear out of this winter.

We narrowed in on the building blocks that any winter wardrobe would pretty much starve without—things like essential puffer coats and functional winter boots—and then added in a handful of the key trends of the season, such as snakeskin print and leather separates. We may be biased, but this capsule wardrobe is foolproof. Shop it from top to bottom to refresh your entire closet at a steep discount, or score on a few key pieces you're most in need of.

You might want to go ahead and bookmark this edit as we get closer to the epic sales and reference it when you go shopping. Simply continue on to see every trend and essential and the exact item we're recommending for each.

Winter Essentials

We couldn't survive the winter without a solid puffer coat on hand.

This valuable wardrobe staple deserves to be in rotation 365 days of the year.

We love the idea of layering this under low-cut dresses.

Our black jeans get way more wear than our blue denim this time of year.

Cozy (and chic) loungewear is the ultimate luxury.

These have a ton of five-star reviews.

Both a trendy and functional pick this winter.

Opt for a beanie in an unexpected color.

A cashmere scarf is on our wish lists each winter.

Keeping warm in the winter is a full-time job—these will help.

Winter Trends

To wear with a turtleneck layered underneath.

Tuck your straight-leg jeans and pants into these to mirror the fashion crowd.

A statement sweater like this striped one is the easiest way to stand out without really trying to.

I'll always say yes to snakeskin print.

Timeless yet still so current.

Great for everyday wear or for party dressing.

To wear at home or out with jeans.

Wear this with tights and heels and you have yourself a night-out look.

Crystals are never a bad idea.

Don't forget about the most important accessory for the holidays.

The ultimate layering piece.

We may or may not have already ordered this.

"Fashion trousers" are basically loosely tailored pants that fashion insiders are pausing their jeans for these days.

Let us guess. You probably needed a new pair of white sneakers.
