Forever 21 Thick Striped Infinity Scarf: This would be great to throw on with anything. Navy & white is always a classic combination, and infinity scarves are great because there's no fuss.
Old Navy Classic Peacoat: I'm in love with the classic fit of this jacket, but also the beautiful wine color. It sort of serves as a neutral color, worn with black, brown, or navy, so you won't have to stuff a million different coats in your closet.
Just Fab Liza Boot: I've been eyeing these boots for a few winters now. I like that these aren't your classic riding boot, but still could be paired with several different outfits. I do wear more black than brown nowadays, so I'm not sure how much wear I'd get out of them.
Urban Outfitter's Flannel Shirt: It could be red, blue, green, high-end, low-end... whatever. No matter what, get yourself a flannel shirt. It is the comfiest, coziest shirt you will wear all winter.
Target Jeggings: I've talked about these before, but I wear them almost every day. I'm not sure how great these would be for someone who lives up North, but for me these are an essential. I just recently tore a hole in one pair, so I'm only down to one. Target, please restock your jeggings.
Target Beanie: Another Target find, but I really want this beanie. It's a fun color to wear on a cold day, and a great fix for bed head.
Let me know what some of your winter basics are! Ooh, and what are your favorite pair of boots?
