Haute Street Gear!

Winter travel means more clothes and accessories just to stay warm. But I’ve learned that stepping out into an artic blast can offer a great opportunity to play with fashion inspired by vintage pieces paired with modern comfort and style.

On a recent trip to New York City (pre blizzard), I spent much of my time walking through Manhattan while temperatures continued to drop to the point of no return. So I pulled out a vintage mink coat and paired it with leggings, Uggs and a Louis Vuitton bowler bag! I also added a cashmere baseball cap and mink scarf to keep the chill at bay.

As I moved from one haute spot in NYC to the next, I was more than ready to battle the cold with street gear that rocked… no need for me to go shopping I just stepped into my closet and walked away with great style options. Don’t let the cold weather keep you from making your signature street style haute!

Describe your favorite street style in winter?


  1. You look so amazing and stylish! Like a true New Yorker!

  2. I love NYC it's always an inspiration for great style!

  3. I think the key to still dressing stylish in the winter is just buying a good coat, hat/glove/scarf set. Honestly, if you have a warm enough coat and keep your hands and head warm you can wear just about anything underneath. So, I don't really shop by seasons. I just make sure to get two really good coats-a shorter coat for when I'm wearing pants and a longer coat for when I'm wearing skirts and dresses-and I got some great cashmere gloves and hats last Christmas that I still wear.

  4. Love your look, it is rather chilly brrrrr!
