Cold-Weather Chic

Whistler, BC

This resort town north of Vancouver is one of the most popular ski and snowboarding destinations in the world. A longline puffer is a must when tackling the snow. Keep everything else streamlined with a sleek turtleneck sweater and insulated leggings. Add on a pom-pom beanie for flair and warmth.

Aspen, CO

One of the most glamorous cold-weather locales, Aspen is home to the chicest ski resorts. Opt for a statement faux-fur coat to team with a knit midi dress and wide-brim fedora for day-to-night outings.

Hokkaido, Japan

The quaint town of Hokkaido is a beautiful oasis of breathtaking snowcapped mountains and iconic hot springs. Relax and take in the majestic sights by staying comfortable and toasty in a thick parka coat, high-waisted jeans, nubby turtleneck and beanie.

Swiss Alps, Switzerland

The gorgeous European mountains call for a super functional yet polished down coat accented with faux-fur trim. A high-waisted legging will keep your body warm, along with a thick ribbed sweater. Layer with a checked scarf to protect your neck.

Jackson Hole, WY

This quiet Wyoming town is the perfect winter getaway when you're craving peace and nature. Combine a fleece vest and coat for ultimate warmth. Wear a super-soft, long-sleeve crewneck as a base and a thick pair of stretchy pants for additional comfort.
