Winter can be a glamorous time of year, if you have a little fun with it. This season, I’m embracing a practical but ladylike look based on fur, Eskimo-inspired footwear, and Fair Isle knits.
For the most part, I’ve been punctuating my classic (not to say unadventurous) wardrobe with colorful knits and bold pops of fur. Eye-catching accessories like a fur collar by Adrienne Landau, rabbit booties by Opening Ceremony, and Fair Isle legwarmers by Marc Jacobs add instant interest to a traditional winter ensemble.
That said, I was carried away by this season’s everything-old-is-new-again philosophy, and indulged in Club Monaco’s leopard coat. A strong statement piece like this makes an instant outfit paired with skinny jeans and simple booties. With options like these, I’m starting to warm to the idea of the long winter ahead.
