The search for the perfect jumpsuit can be a never ending battle, especially in the dead of winter, but it all ends with this Trina Turk stunner. The wide leg is great for pairing with booties and tights for a cold night, and also creates a flattering shape for all body types. The neck detail adds elegance, and makes this the perfect piece to help you stand out in a sea of similar gowns at your next formal event. Trina Turk Jumpsuit $398; bloomingdales.com

These pants are a win for me based on the color alone. The deep berry hue allows for a colorful moment, without being too flashy. Coated twill gives an outfit texture and a slight sheen to make layered pieces stand out. This sleek pair is ideal for spicing up a business casual or date night look.

I have to admit that lately I have been pretty bored with dresses. Nothing really excites me enough to want to forego my uniform of leather leggings or bright denim and a cozy sweater for less warm options—until now that is. This dress speaks to me as a short person because mini-length hems always seem to hit at just the right place without being too long or too short, and the color-blocking adds some flair to the typical collared dress.

On chilly weekends, the last thing I want to do is leave the house. But, when I am forced to vacate my couch and run errands I will be doing it in this sweatshirt. This piece does not sacrifice being on trend for the sake of comfort. The slim fit and subtle sparkle of the lurex yarn keeps it from being basic, while still as easy to throw on as your old oversized college hoodie.

The faux fur vest is a wardrobe staple this season because it can be worn in a variety of ways. While many brands offer options in multiple colors, I suggest sticking to a black or brown version to maintain sophistication and versatility. Throw it over a dress to add some glamour to a night out, or pair it with skinny jeans, a button-down and boots for a 70’s vibe. Boxy Fur Gilet $130; topshop.com
