How to Tackle
the Cold-Weather Commute
Pulling together something that goes from morning vinyasa to midday lattes to meetings with clients takes careful consideration. Having to do all of the above while factoring in wet slush is a particularly tricky brand of WTF. Luckily, the season’s most sophisticated styling tricks also happen to be the most sensible. And if you’re not sure where to start, well, that’s where a checklist really comes in handy.
COP YOURSELF A STATEMENT COAT
If you invest in one thing this winter, make it a coat. But not just any coat—we’re talking about one of those utterly plush, sharply tailored coats that are as sharp as they are weather-ready.
GO TO GREAT LENGTHS
When miniskirts are no longer on the menu—and anything at ground
level loses to the elements—we give you: a desk-to-drinks midlength
skirt that can handle almost anything.
JUMP IN FEET FIRST
They can be rugged or weatherproof,
heavy-duty or super slick, but there’s one thing
these sludge-stompers have in common: They all
live at the intersection of fashion and function.
UP YOUR SWEATER GAME
The beauty of the triple-duty turtleneck? You can wear it solo now, layer it over fancier tops later, and then slot it under more substantial coats when things really start to look grim.
1) Get yourself a spacious bag. 2) Keep an
extra tote on hand in case of market
runs/drop-in sweat sessions. And 3) rely
on this XL situation to carry you
everywhere you want to go.
ALWAYS. BE. MOISTURIZING
Our strategy for combating dry, chapped, wind-bitten everything? It starts with
drinkable collagen for thirsty skin and ends with four of our favorite
face-coddling cleansers, creams, balms, and beyond. You dew you.
