MAS­TER WIN­TER STYLE

Hint: The colours may be neu­tral, but the over­all im­pact is any­thing but

The Kit - - FRONT PAGE -

Dur­ing my re­cent move, I dis­cov­ered some­thing sur­pris­ing while pack­ing, knee- deep in piles of cash­mere and silk: More than half of my “nice” clothes are sum­mer clothes. For a Cana­dian, this is ob­vi­ously in­sane. Hap­pily, the best way to rec­tify this sar­to­rial im­bal­ance is to go shop­ping. In­spi­ra­tion ar­rived via In­sta­gram one dozy De­cem­ber morn­ing when this cover of WWD made me sit up as if I’d just downed a triple shot. I love ev­ery­thing about this look: the chic monochro­matic pal­ette; the slouchy, cozy sweater paired with a midi skirt in a non-flimsy fab­ric; those per­fect pumps. So this Jan­uary, I’m all about cre­at­ing a killer win­ter wardrobe that strays out­side my com­fort combo of dress-tights-heels into style ter­ri­tory that is a lit­tle less ex­pected, a lit­tle more pol­ished. I’ve reimag­ined the in­spi­ra­tion look here with a few ex­tra touches, in­clud­ing a cou­ple of beauty es­sen­tials and pieces from Cana­dian fash­ion tal­ents Jenny Bird and Søsken Stu­dios. Thoughts?
