Tips for Winter Dressing

When asked recently about winter dressing for an article, I automatically advised to consider environment and lifestyle.  If you live in D.C., winter can feel like Spring two days before a storm or after.  For those mild winters, merino wool absorbs without feeling like you are living in a sweat lodge.  Also, think layers - thin knits under a light-weight sweater and overcoat will keep the chill at bay and delayer as needed.  If you find yourself in northern exposures, opt for alpaca and worsted wool and keep those extremities covered - hats, gloves, and scarves.  How can you still look fashionable under all those layers?  Opt for jewel-tone colors for outwear and accessories to life the spirits on a cold wintry day.
