Bundle Up!

It is COLD. But we still want to look cute! I am a little embarrassed as I have become even more of a wimp about the cold. How quickly I have forgotten the 39 years I spent living in the north (Cape Cod, Boston, New York!) and the brutal weather winter could entail. Now, it drops below fifty and I’m pulling out my winter hats and gloves. I am heading to New York next week and will be packing all of the wintery things!

Grace:

Coats are something I will invest in because I tend to go very classic and I’ll keep a well-made coat for years and years. I tend to purchase one, maybe two special coats each winter; now I’ve got a whole army of them. My all time favorite coat is a camel hair coat from Ralph Lauren, similar to this one. I bought it ages ago (a few years before the pandemic?). This year’s most worn coat has been this one from Sportmax – it’s got such a beautiful drape and is perfect for Charleston’s more moderate winters. I tend to favor coats in brown and camel. My blonde hair (and let’s be honest, Tyrion’s blonde fur) show so easily on black and navy! To add a little color to my mostly neutral ensembles, I love a pop of red. This beanie and these socks make for great accents. If it’s really cold I love layering a cashmere wrap over my coat for extra warmth. Something like this will do the trick!

Carly:

One thing about me is that I will ignore the cold weather in Charleston until it’s borderline unbearable. Having just moved back to Charleston from a one year stint in NYC, I’m prepped and ready for whatever the dropping temps may bring. A little fun fact is that while in New York I worked events for Max Mara so I can attest to the rave review behind their teddy coat. It is everything you’re looking for in a winter jacket (granted it may be a bit TOO warm for Charleston winters). Arguably, fashion’s best kept secret is the Ganni outerwear section. This wool coat is so chic and is the perfect option for someone who is eyeing The Row coat without The Row price. My latest winter accessory craze are the Everlane cashmere beanies. I was gifted this exact beanie (in neon orange nonetheless) and find myself grabbing for it any time the temperature dips. I am through and through a beanie girl, it is part of my personality and I wear it (literally) proudly!

    Living in the south is weird because you only need heavy winter clothes for a few weeks, but when you need them, you really need them! I generally keep one or two nice, long, winter coats for more formal occasions/travel and a handful of puffers, anoraks and short coats that I use with layers. I have to really fight the temptation to buy a coat in every color. After temps being in the teens for the past several days, we will be flirting with 70 degrees by mid-week. I’m not mad about it!

    • You are so right! It’s been unbearable this past week – I’m excited for it to warm up.

    I am currently sweltering through summer in the southern hemisphere – dreaming about beautiful winter clothes.

    I love the cold weather and cold weather style, but living in the warm climate of South East Asia means I’ll never get to wear my coats unless I travel overseas! Love this picks <3
