Even though it’s sunny during the day, the cold weather is not quite gone. The evenings have been chilly.
Here are some quick tips for stepping out in the evening chill as we experience the tail end of Winter.
1. Cotton Tailored Coat
An unlined cotton topcoat is one of my go-tos between seasons. In fact, I have this same one by Theory in navy as well (as featured here).
The shape and fit make the jacket “dressy” but the cotton fabric gives it a casual feel as well. This jacket can easily be dressed down, as shown here.
Paired with a scarf it’s just enough to break the chill, but not enough to get overheated. Think of a cotton topcoat as a windbreaker, for whenever you’re not doing something athletic.
As I’ve mentioned (here), I like fur in small doses. This black/grey rabbit fur scarf ads a soft touch of luxury and sophistication.
Carrying a bag, especially for us city folk, makes life much easier when the weather is unpredictable. You can swap out layers and accessories and carry them on the go.
I like a leather duffle because, like a cotton topcoat, it can also be dressed up or down. Look for something big enough to carry your daily belongings but small enough that it’s easy to handle – but not so small that it gets confused for a purse.
