Win in Wool

When in winter, wool creates a winning wardrobe.

Another vintage blazer sourced from my mom’s closet years ago provides a counterpoint to some of my classic pieces. My dress is the base of my navy suit, my bag is the alternative to my black bag when I need brown – I’ve had it since college (actually my mom got it for me in college from a cool leather designer that custom made bags, and then it was stolen in 2009 and I had it replaced because it’s such a great bag – unfortunately the designer is no longer in business), and my sunglasses are used so much that both lenses are currently cracked (this is my second pair) and I need to order replacements.

Love how this blazer elevates a neutral navy palette and allows for the introduction of maroon (both shoes and neck wrap).

Found my neck wrap at Saks in Houston in 2012 to wear for a friend’s outdoor wedding – it’s an infinity scarf; is exceptionally warm, and adds great texture to winter work outfits. Shoes are my favorite when needing to be more formal during winter months – I wear them with black, navy, and greys.

The coat is a staple in my closet for when black doesn’t go. It was a secondary basic I selected once I started branching out from only wearing black to being able to include navy in my wardrobe. It’s lightweight, throws easily over shoulders, but is still oversized enough to fit over blazers.

Dress, blazer and coat are all wool blends – and work really well as part of a winter work wardrobe.

So, wrap up your winter wardrobe with wool.

All my best,
