1. A pair of plaid pants with tapered legs so you can be a rockstar with every outfit.

Promising review: "I get so many compliments on these pants; everybody loves them. Even my Mom, who is generally VERY disinterested in (if not disapproving of) my fashion choices, asked me where I got them. The fabric is comfortable yet looks sophisticated (it is something akin to a light tweed but with a touch of stretch). They don't seem to wrinkle either, which is great. I like them so much that I am ordering a second pair." —JanusPrice: $98 (available in sizes 0–12)

2. A fuzzy beanie, because you lose most of the heat on your body through your head, so it's best to make sure it's nice and warm.

Promising review: "This hat is adorable and warm, and looks just as it does on the model. I feel like most big winter hats from FP end up fitting so large and baggy on me, but this one has an incredibly flattering fit and is going to be perfect for winter. Looks surprisingly adorable with red plaid." —jakfruitPrice: $38 (available in two colors)

Great paired with jeans!! The sleeves are a bit billowy in a good way." —dettaPrice: $98 (available in sizes XS–L and three colors)

It was also a good length and I can still tuck it into stuff." —starshine4youPrice: $68 (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors)
