Times like these (freezing times) call for AT LEAST two shirts (three if you can pull it off) and a jacket. Almost at all times – with the exception being holiday parties (if this is your area of interest, see here) and vacations.
Keep it casual and warm on the weekends with these easy steps (all worn with a the Helmut Lang Wax Denim – (available in store) but any slim cut pant will do):
1. The flannel and/or plaid and/or silk collared shirt. Stylish, classic, and warm – perfect. Here we went with plaid – but feel free to choose your own variation from the above criteria!
2. The Sweater. If your collared shirt is printed – opt for a solid sweater. If your collared shirt is solid, opt for a printed sweater!
3. The jacket. If you plan to leave your house you’re going to need one of these. We chose a thin yet roomy option that will accommodate all the layering. This is acceptable because it will seal in all the warmth from your sweater and shirt layers, protect you from the wind chill / fine print ( -15 . . . *feels like -35* ), while reducing the bulk.
5. The bag. This particular bag goes with absolutely everything. We can’t stop. But in general – one needs a good solid bag – at least in the winter. While you’re walking the streets all layered up – all you have to show off is your jacket and your bag – so choose well!
