What Clothes Do You Need For Winter To Stay Warm & Stylish?

Thanks to the Polar Vortex, last year's winter was unpleasant to say the absolute least. Frigid temperatures, icy roads, and being snowed in aren't conducive to fashion. However, if you're looking to stay warm and keep your style game on point, you might be wondering what clothes you need for winter that will help you beat the frigid temps in your hometown and also look gorgeous braving the walk out the front door and into the chilly air. It's possible to find functional, but fashionable winter gear! Don't lose hope.

The truth to winter fashion is that you've got tons of options due to the beautiful art that is layering. Flannel shirt, outerwear, scarves, hats, gloves — the options for making your winter wardrobe gorgeous are endless. There's a good chance that you've already gotten some of your winter wardrobe handled. Whether it's the peacoat you've had since you were in college or the great pair of snow boots that are perfect at keeping your feet warm in the bleakest of snow storms, winter clothing can be some of the best staples of your wardrobe.

When winter roles around though, there's chance that you're going to need to replenish your staple items. No matter how incredible your favorite pair of tights are, they're not going to last forever. So what winter clothing staples should you keep in your wardrobe?
