Maybe it's because I'm a California girl through and through, but I find winter dressing to be slightly overwhelming. I get claustrophobic in too many layers and the chunkiest of sweaters, and don't even get me started on the endless process of peeling on and off of clothes when leaving and entering buildings. To keep the winter blues at bay, I like to keep a capsule wardrobe filled with warm basics I'll welcome wearing over and over again. This year, that looks like comfortable and stylish bottoms, classic sweaters, and trendy knit sets. My favorite options are waiting for you below.
