Warm and Chic

When it’s really cold outside, you reach for whatever is warmest, even if it’s mismatched winter wear. And who could blame you; desperate times call for desperate measures. But even in what meteorologists say may be the coldest winter in 25 years, you don’t have to sacrifice style to prevent hypothermia.

Winter fashion is about being warm, comfortable and luxurious, says fashion designer Crystal Harris. “Professional women pride themselves in being put together; the same applies to your winter wear. When you spend the money on staying warm, you can easily stay fashionable as well.”

Here’s how:

Add elegance to any winter ensemble with a luxurious cashmere scarf. We like these from Michael Kors, Anne Taylor Loft and Macy’s.

Who says gloves can’t be fashionable. Forget grandma’s mittens. Think soft, leather, glamorous gloves from Ralph Lauren, Forzieri and Newport News.

Want hipper layers? Try arm warmers. DKNY and ASOS offer options.

Stand out in a fab winter hat! You’ll find great options from Spiegel and Searle. We also love this vintage look from Kate Spade and Nordstrom.
