This winter, by all accounts, stands to be one of the coldest in recent memory. So, in order to create a healthier world, we need to go shopping! After all, none of us can afford to get sick from exposure. Some great clothing for the winter will keep us nice and warm, and keep us healthy too.
Perhaps one of the most versatile items of clothing in a woman’s closet is the tunic. With long sleeves and a longer-than usual hemline, a tunic will offer style and warmth on blustery days and cold nights. They will couple nicely with your winter coat, or serve perfectly on chilly days without the help of an outer jacket. Masai clothing makes a great variety of tunics, from velvet to cotton, depending on your tastes.
Long-sleeved t-shirts are also a great fashion choice for winter weather. While too light-weight for outside wear without an outer covering, they are perfect for home and the office. T-shirts are not just for slogans, anymore, with quality designers and clothing companies incorporating a wide variety of materials and designs in the product. These days the term “t-shirt” applies more to a shape of top than the construction. A t-shirt can have cap sleeves, three-quarter sleeves, or long sleeves, and will usually hit anywhere from mid-waist to mid-hip. You can expect a t-shirt to be a little more form fitting than a tunic, and it will have a little bit of stretch to it. The great feature of this item is that it can be paired with cardigans, jackets, scarves, and winter coats for an overall look that creates your own unique style. Dolan makes some great t-shirts that will go from summer to winter with the right wardrobe additions.
Ah, the winter coat. What a magnificent wardrobe addition! Having grown up in a balmy part of the world, where a winter coat is necessary only 2 or 3 days a year, I was totally unaware that people who lived in colder climes would have SEVERAL winter coats! A lady I knew from New York had 5! Each one was a work of art, with beautiful design and a variety of materials. Long or short, your winter coats can be chosen to compliment your wardrobe and look great at the same time. Apt. 9, Croft & Barrow, and IZ Byer have some great styles out there for the lover of winter coats.
Never underestimate the value of a closet full of cardigans. The cardigan may be one of the most versatile wardrobe items, yet. It can add a touch of color and texture to an otherwise ordinary shell or t-shirt. It can be an extra layer of warmth over your office wear and beneath your coat. It can take your summer wardrobe into the winter with ease and style. Vera Wang, Dana Buchman, and Mudd make some great designs with durable materials that you’ll just love to add to your wardrobe.
