Winter Fashion: Accessorizing and Layering

While we haven’t seen piles of snow yet, the temps have dropped in many parts of the country. Even temperate climes get a little chilly at night--yes, even in California. Once the snowbanks bog us down, we often go from battling brute force winds to sweltering indoor heat. The best way to deal is by layering and choosing your accessories wisely.

Fortunately we have lots of really cute options this winter. You can wear a long sweater or sweater jacket over layered tees or jersey tops, tailored jackets, cropped jackets, vests, shawls, capelets and scarves to stay warm--and cool when you need to. If you live in a warmer climate, this season’s adorable short-sleeved and 3/4” sleeved jackets are perfect for adding that extra layer without bulking up.

Here are some of my favorite winter accessories and clothes for layering.

Rick Owens Half front tie cardigan - $710

Rickowens Dust wool ribbed cardigan with self-tie at empire line on the front. It’s longer in the front than in the back for a unique look this winter.

Wednesday Wrap Sweater

This semi-sheer wrap sweater features elbow sleeves with ribbed cuffs, a lettuce edge hem, and seam detail at back finishing at the bust. Don’t you just want to wrap up in it?

213193_7791 Petite Metallic Puffer Vest -

Carry this cashmere shawl with you everywhere for instant warmth and style.
