Styling the Winter Edits

Net-a-Porter

Honorable Mention: This divine Bella Freud sweatshirt.

I'm really into the idea of selecting classic silhouettes and color palettes but updating the look with surprising, modern elements. I've swapped a traditional cable knit for a feather-trimmed sweater from Elizabeth and James. In the place of a plain black trouser, I've opted for velvet.  For this look, I topped things off with a classic black ankle boot with a twist and a menswear-inspired camel coat.

Moda Operandi

Honorable Mention: The Rosie Assoulin gown I'm dying over.

I'll keep it short and sweet by saying that everything in Moda's Holiday Dress Campaign edit was so perfect, I nearly cried. This look would be my choice for the ballet, with embellished champagne shoes and delicate, embroidered Natasha Zinko pants. In real life, I'm pairing my black chenille sweater with white button-downs and jeans in an attempt to be a sort-of zany Carolyn Bessette Kennedy.

Barney's

Honorable Mention: Helmut Lang's new take on the old white button-down.

Here, I've blended looks from two of Barney's edits---A Fine Wine and The Big Cozy. Monochrome makes for an easy uniform but all-black can be tiresome. Go monochrome with oxblood, which to me is the new neutral. The clothes are fairly basic---turtleneck and army pants, but they've been elevated by the contrasting accessories: a classic Saint Laurent tote and ultra-modern flatforms.
