January Layers

It’s taken me about 4 years to figure out how to properly dress for New York winters!  Growing up in Arizona, we didn’t have seasons so I had absolutely no clue how to layer when I moved here.  This past November I decided to bite the bullet and invest in really quality sweaters, coats, scarves, and vests.  Material makes a huge difference when it comes to warmth so I tried to stick with wool, cashmere, leather, and suede.  These leather booties have held up season after season of walking through wet, snowy NYC streets.  This sweater is the warmest one I own (still eyeing it in this gorgeous shade of pink.)  Shop more of my cold weather essentials (like this vest which just went on major sale) below and make sure to take advantage of the Piperlime sale – they’re offering 25% off full priced items!

Vince coat (similar) // Theory turtleneck
Frame Denim jeans (similar) // Rag & Bone booties
Preston & Olivia hat // Givenchy bag

    Looks like you learned just in time for the blizzard that’s heading your way. Warm, but still wonderful.

    Hi Kat! You look so warm and cozy! I love the way you styled the whole outfit. Being from Florida, I have issues with dressing appropriately when the weather is cooler. And, I haven’t had any cold weather vacations. So, I would be totally lost dressing for New York winter. Thanks for how to on that, I love the whole outfit! Have a lovely day! XO, Maria

    You look gorgeous! Love the touch of grey on this coat and that fedora. I felt the same when I first move to Chicago from Venezuela…I had no idea how to dress for the cold freezing winters of Chicago. Good quality winter gear is key. Thanks for sharing –Soraya

    This outfit is really pretty. For the longest time I hated turtlenecks,but with the freezing temperetures here in Paris, I decided I should invest in one. Definitely a good idea. When its cold, layering is key.
