Your wardrobe loves winter, a time when forgotten turtlenecks and sweaters get dusted off, reunited with tees and shirts in a dance widely known as "real dressing." For all its flaws, colder weather gives greater opportunity for individuality in style — a chance to create a unique tapestry of garment configuration that you haven't seen anywhere else.

A good modular wardrobe is all about getting the base pieces right, though, and this first step is the most important one. Get this part and wrong, and you'll end up with a collection of clothes that hate each other.

With this in mind, and winter's icy grip getting tighter by the minute, we teamed up with luxury destination Mytheresa to pick out 10 pieces that will make powerful additions to this season's closet cast.

Your fall and winter layering inspo is below.
