From cold mornings, sunny and windy afternoons to finally cold nights, deciding on what to put on nowadays is becoming as difficult as what to eat for supper.

That being said, here are some closet essentials that will help you weather through any weather without looking tacky:
Being dopamine season which basically means adding more colour to your closet, it wouldn’t hurt to stock up on colourful blazers.

And besides, we all know how amazing and classy turtlenecks are without any accessories so imagine with that blazer on top?
