The holidays are right around the corner. Days are getting shorter, shops are beginning to decorate their stores, and you’ll hear the classic holiday songs when out and about. Sure, the temperatures will be a little colder, but we’ll only get to experience true winter when we fly abroad. If you have plants to experience a white Christmas or you’re headed somewhere cold, we’ve curated a little guide on winter fashion essentials:
