Winter Essentials: 6 Wear-Now Favorites
Baby, it’s cold outside! Stay cozy and cuddle in with our top six winter essentials. Starting with sweaters, you need two: a long, bohemian blanket cardigan and a short, preppy cable knit. To keep things fabulous, layer on a fur hoodie or vest. It’s perfect for the ski lodge, as well as uptown errands. Traveling down to footwear, an embellished moccasin keeps things toasty and stylish (simply add your favorite sweater and skinnies). Top things off with a must-have Fair Isle accent and an oversized, weathered tote bag.
