6 chic looks that’ll also keep you warm.
Mercury is in freefall and the only thing you want to wear is your duvet—we get it. But take note: The winter chill doesn’t mean you have to put your style sensibilities on ice. ‘Tis the season for cozy chic: cocoon coats; rich, opulent textures; and bohemian details that will keep you warm AND stylish. In other words, some serious statements.
Read on for six ways to hack the cold with a serious dose of cool.
A checkered pattern — whether presented via geometric slimline trousers or a floaty skirt — is a winter staple. Play on the masculinity of the print with men’s inspired add-ons, such as loafers or a lean, sleek coat (like this one from Maximilian), and keep the rest of your look simple and elegant.
The brilliance of a shearling jacket is two-fold: Firstly, it’s incredibly warm. Second, it offers a rugged vibe that perfectly balances city-inspired style cues. Pair one with polished hair and statement earrings, and offset the structure of the jacket by throwing on a sweater over a silk dress—extra points for multiple, warming layers.
Think #OldCéline: pragmatic, roomy silhouettes; a focus on tailored separates; discreetly luxurious knitwear; simple accessories; and sumptuously thick textures. These chic staples facilitate busy lives and insulate on the go. After all, isn’t comfort the ultimate form of luxury? Curate your look around a carefully-chosen coat in warm neutrals — think ecru, white, and taupe — in a cozy texture, like this shearling option from Maximilian.
A favorite term of those perennially chic Parisians, “BoBo” mixes bourgeois tendencies with bohemian flair, offering a sort of relaxed, hippie-luxe aesthetic. To achieve this, mix animal accents such as snakeskin finishes and leopard prints with plush fabrics like velvet and shearling. Extra points for updating nostalgic silhouettes (like flares) with modern details (like fun prints).
A look favored as much by editors running between shows in New York as celebrities clambering out of cars, the classic Canadian Tuxedo (otherwise known as double denim) is perfectly balanced with Fall/Winter 2019’s trending hue: camel.
Layer a pair of cropped jeans and an indigo denim jacket with a cozy teddy coat and a neutral boot for a stylish day look. Add polished, ladylike extras such as a frame purse or statement earrings to balance out the hard-wearing denim and keep things low-key sophisticated.
