When it doubles as a cozy blanket.
And not only that, but this functional Navajo Cardigan by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent is reversible — choose a primarily black or ivory two-tone depending on your mood. Knit from a blend of lambswool, viscose, cashmere and nylon, this sweater is hip yet comfy ($495 at shopbop.com).
When it’s as comfortable as pajamas…yet dramatic as any statement piece.
I adore Mara Hoffman’s Shawl Collar Wrap Coat ($660 at intermixonline.com). I just want to wrap up in it and weather the elements. Made of wool, angora and nylon, this jacket is cut thin and features a wide shawl collar. Throw it on over everything!
When its silhouette is inspired by a cocoon.
J. Crew’s Wool Cashmere Capella Coat ($298 at jcrew.com) is both luxurious and minimalistic. It’s the right shape for layering over your thickest winter sweaters, yet the tapered bottom is chic and slimming. Best yet, it comes in always classic, but ultra-hot-this-season camel, as well as ivory and black.
