Wool Top Coat, $200 |TOPMAN|
I've emphasized the importance of fit countless times here on the site, but this time it's all about oversized. Whether single- or double-breasted, the silhouette is about loose fitting top coats with a soft shoulder that falls slightly off giving it a slouchy, oversized feel.
How to wear it: This style of coat can go left quickly. Though you want an oversized look, look for coats that are in proportion to your body type, and by that I mean, stay true to your current coat size. I prefer this style of coat in solid colors of black, grey, or camel.

Reversible Poncho, $49.90 |Zara|
One of my favorite pieces that I've been rocking since last fall is the poncho/cape. Ideal for these cold winter months, ponchos can be thrown right over your outerwear.
How to wear it: If you want to rock a poncho or cape this season, keep it clean. Bright colors or prints are not the way to go; look for solids - many designers and retailers are also offering styles in reversible colors.

Merino Wool Turtleneck, $89.50 |J.Crew|
A staple that will never go out of style, but is gaining some major traction this season is the turtleneck. Perfect for layering, this basic is a must have for the modern or classic man. Seen in lightweight cotton and merino wool, designers layered turtlenecks under other knits, outerwear, and blazers.
How to wear it: The easiest must have piece to wear, and something everyone should have in their closet; layer turtlenecks under blazers, outerwear, or other knit pieces. If you are using it as a layering piece, keep them lightweight and colors solid.
