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.
Polo Ralph Lauren Sleeveless Sweater
The return of the sweater vest has been well and truly made this season, and it's a wonder it took so long. With sleeves absent, those statement shirts and long sleeves get more space to shine during the colder seasons. This one from Ralph is timeless.
Off-White™ Flannel Shirt
Bold colored shirts like this are perfect players for the layering game, ready to rear their colorful heads from beneath dark sweaters and jackets.
and Wander Vest
Fall favorite fleece gets the camo treatment on a vest by Japan's and Wander. Juxtapose this more functional piece with a roll neck or shirt.
COMME des GARÇONS Cardigan
Much like its sweater vest sister, the cardigan's comeback is by now undisputed. There are heaps of good ones around at the moment, but this CDG piece is a truly-worthy investment item.
Éditions M.R Turtleneck
Simple, sophisticated, smart. The number of reasons to cop a turtleneck is many. But the one that matters most? They go with pretty much anything.
King and Tuckfield Corduroy Shirt
Cord never gets old. And quite literally, too, as this extra-durable fabric tends to last for years and years. Try it with that turtleneck above.
Nanushka Ribbed Sweater
Like looking at a fire or pumpkin, the color of this Nanushka sweater makes me warm inside. Made from a wool and cashmere blend, it'll make you warm on the outside, too.
Our Legacy V Neck Sweater
Sweden's Our Legacy just left all other holiday jumpers in the dust. Its V-neck opening also lets you show off the brand new shirt mom gifted you.
Tom Ford Long Johns
Trust us, you don't know you need a pair of long johns until it's too late.
Acne Studios Turtleneck
Two turtlenecks make the list. You can never have too many, after all.
