Dear Answer Angel Ellen: I find myself spending more and more time in warm climates to avoid the cold winters. I find that I no longer want to share space in my closet with my heavy-duty cold winter wardrobe. I'd like to pare down to just a list of 10 essentials.
If you were to pare down to a "capsule" a cold-weather wardrobe, what would it include?

Dear Christine: I asked an expert to weigh in on your question. After a long career as a fashion stylist and personal shopper at Bloomingdale's in Chicago, Joyce Sobczyk moved to Florida and continues her styling career at theclosetconsult.com.
Here's her list:
