5 Wardrobe Staples That Help You Transition Into The Cold Season In Style

For as much as we love fall, with all its beautiful colors and warm sun, we know that nothing lasts forever and as the days go by, we are slowly approaching the cold season that lies just around the corner. This is the perfect time to start playing with layers and cuddle in cosy knits, but keeping warm, while feeling comfortable and looking stylish could end up being quite a challenge. We usually tend to favor comfort and loose the chic factor along the way, but thankfully the transition into the cold season can be done in more appealing ways too. The first and most important step to approach the chilly days in style, is made right in the moment you choose the coat or jacket that will represent you throughout the entire season. Here are our top 5 favorite choices in the matter, and we hope they will help you figure out what’s the best option for you.

It looks sharp, edgy, it is comfortable and above all, it goes with pretty much anything you might have in mind.
