Well, winter has whooshed in, in grand style, temps in the 20’s, wind chills in the teens mixed with drizzle, ice and sleet. It is that kind of ice/sleet mix where mother nature can’t really decide if she wants to drizzle, rain, sleet or snow, so she decides on a mix of all of it, and as far as I am concerned it is all yucky! So in honor of winter’s grand entrance I have picked my favorite cold weather items that will do their best to keep you warm, while keeping you looking stylish. Bundle up and stay warm!
The key to staying warm is layers, so start off with a silk long sleeve tee, pure silk traps in heat and wicks away moisture, my favorite is the Silk Pointelle Scoop Long Sleeve Tee by Lands End, available at www.landsend.com.
Next add the warm, snuggly item, which I happen to favor cashmere and love this cashmere cable knit sweater available at www.bananarepublic.com.
As far as bottoms go, I prefer jeans that are made from a thicker denim with a straight leg, so I can tuck them into boots. Kasil jeans fit great, look amazing and are made from a super premium, high quality thicker denim. Available at www.revolveclothing.com.
When it comes to keeping your feet warm, you can never go wrong with boots and Ugg boots in particular. Lucky for us, Ugg has moved on from their classic boots that were all the rage a few seasons ago and have designed very hip boots that will also keep your feet warm. Ugg Tess boots available at www.uggaustralia.com.
A coat is imperative to keep the cold wind away and North Face makes the best coats, stylish and warm. The Northface Denali Jacket is made out of a Polartec fleece that features a water repellent finish and is warm while still being lightweight. Available at www.thenorthface.com. If you need a dressier coat check out J.Crew’s excellent selection, all are classy, lady-like and gorgeous. I love the Stadium Trench Coat, available at www.jcrew.com.
Don’t forget a stylish scarf to top off your outfit, I always reach for my classic Burberry plaid scarf, warm, soft and sophisticated. Available at www.nordstrom.com.
