Warm Your Core – Work Your Winter Wardrobe!

Plush Rib-Knit Top
Link Stretch Bracelet

Nothing is worse in the winter than being too bundled up, especially if you’re going from a cold parking lot to a hectic setting like the mall or your child’s school. The trick is layers! A lightweight, eye-catching vest is the perfect way to keep your core toasty warm for those dashes from the car to your final destination, plus it still gives you a chance to show off that cozy sweater you’re wearing underneath.

Skip The Blazer, Stay Warm – Look Professional!

Two-Button Sweater-Fleece Coat
Relaxed Crepe Blouse
Mid-Rise Pixie Ankle Pants

Layering a blazer underneath any kind of outerwear can quickly make you feel like you’re wearing a straitjacket. If you have a professional event to attend, skip the blazer and go for a coat that will keep you warm and look totally appropriate over your workwear. Best of all, you’ll get to skip the pesky coat check line!

Dress It Up for Date Night

Long Wool-Blend Coatigan
Ponte-Knit Flute-Sleeve Shift Dress
Crystal-Cluster Statement Necklace

A parka plus a pretty dress isn’t exactly what you’d call a flattering look. If you’re heading to a holiday party or a Christmas concert, you can still look super classy in your winter gear. Look for a longer jacket with a straight, slimming silhouette. We love this one for its picture frame-style neckline, perfect for highlighting a piece of statement jewelry when you’re buttoned up.

Look For Winter-Friendly Versions of Your Favorite Styles

Twill Field Jacket
Long Moto Jacket
Classic Wool-Blend Peacoat

You know what cuts work best for you, but a common complaint is how jackets can make you look shapeless. Keep an eye out for similar silhouettes to what you’re wearing underneath. Love to define your waist? Pick a coat with ties to cinch things in. Dig the vibe of a chic moto jacket? A longer-line version can still give your outfits a bit of edge. Into preppy styles? Go for a timeless peacoat in a heavier wool to get you through the blustery months.

Make Your Outerwear Part Of Your Outfit

Faux-Leather Moto Jacket
Velvet-Knit Swing Dress
Control-Top Mini Chevron-Printed Tights

Tis the season for celebrating – and hopping between parties and celebrations. Instead of stripping off a heavy duty jacket from place to place, go for a piece that looks like a natural fit with your outfit. A classic moto coat over a swingy dress with tights will easily take you from after-work cocktails to an open house party to an indoor ice skating date.

Brave the Outdoors and Look Good Doing It

Hooded Utility Parka
Mock-Neck Hi-Lo Sweater
Short Button-Loop Adoraboots

Sometimes you just need a good, heavy duty parka – for Christmas tree shopping, sledding with the kids, or outdoor chores. That doesn’t mean you need to totally ditch your fashion sense. Look for a parka that can be cinched at the waist and is lightweight but warm. A built-in hood and high neck can also save you from having to tote around (and potentially lose) a scarf and beanie.
