Ask Shopbop: Cold Weather Party Looks


Look 1: Haute Hippie vest, 3.1 Phillip Lim pants, Yigal Azrouel jacket, Theyskens’ Theory pumps. Look 2: Alice + Olivia blazer, Tibi skirt, Giuseppe Zanotti sandals. Look 3: Yigal Azrouel dress, Maison scotch jacket, Luxury Rebel sandals.

Party season always coincides with the coldest months of the year. How can I look good and stay warm?

It’s almost cruel, isn’t it? Party season ramps up just as the temperatures drop. To keep warm without sacrificing style, I rely on statement-making jackets and a hold, wear, drape system.

HOLD
Pairing a moto jacket with a slouchy silhouette feels very downtown-chic. Wear it while in transit and keep it handy at the party for added warmth and style. Bold pink pants are both festive and warm, while a vest adds layers without bulk. Closed-toe heels finish the look and shield feet from the cold.

WEAR
A thick, textured blazer is another warm option. Layered over a thin sweater and paired with a longer skirt, it cuts a sophisticated and ladylike profile. Push the sleeves up once inside for casual elegance. Evening sandals balance the covered-up look, and polished gold jewelry adds to the brocade texture.

DRAPE
For the ultimate in sexy winter looks, drape a luxe coat over a body-con dress in the same color palette. The tonal hues anchor it together, allowing you to keep your warm coat on as part of the ensemble. Graphic sandals and a neutral clutch let the saturated duo shine.
