Temperatures are dropping and we’re reaching for anything to bundle us up and keep us warm (boyfriends included).

Thankfully, there are a multitude of options to keep us cosy this winter.

Try a cable knit sweater in mustard yellow, one of the season’s biggest colors, or experiment with the newest fashion faux pas-turned-trend: ugly sneakers. If you’re not ready for bold fashion statements, swap your go-to silhouette for a similar piece in a bright new hue. You can test out daring colors like fire engine red and emerald in cuts that you know flatter you. Best of both worlds!

Create your own winter capsule wardrobe with these fail-safe essentials from Spree. Here are some basic winter wardrobe staples every girl needs in her closet!
