Take for example the Koko Head shades. They come in three understated matte colorways (black, wood grain and tortoise), can be made with your prescription built in, and have technologically advanced lenses for optimized color, clarity and detail. The frames are lightweight, durable and look good.
We especially like these sunglasses as our winter frames. During the summer months, your sunglasses get tortured, from sweat, sand and with all the outdoor festivities, usually lost. Instead use Koko Heads smartly and strategically to fend off winter rays, snow flurries and overall make your look that much more cohesive.
Pair your new favorite sunnies with modest, highly wearable and intelligent, cold-weather clothes. We love the Baseline Turtleneck by John Elliot, a smart parka by Represent, and slim dungarees (very advanced jeans) by Outlier to give yourself a look that will make you want to go outside in the cold.
The Koko Head Sunglasses by Maui Jim, $229, are built to have an extraordinary fit, lightweight feel and super thin glass for optimized color and clarity. You can also fill these frames with prescription lenses.
The Sherpa Parka by Represent, about $430, has an oversized fit with attention to detail, like the fishtail back, and adjustable cord waistband. Fabric and production is 100% made in England.
The True North Bowmont Jumper by Finisterre, about $220, is made with 100% British Merino wool, processed and spun in Yorkshire, and finally knit in Manchester.
The Ultrafine Merino T-Shirt by Outlier, $110, is not an ordinary t-shirt. Made with a Mackenzie 17.5 micron Merino Jersey, this shirt is soft, dry and has wicking properties to stay dry. We're impressed.
The Small Rolling Duffle by Filson, $495, is the perfect way to pack for the holidays. Tote it when light, pull it along when it gets heavy (hopefully with presents), this versatile piece of luggage is a necessity.
The Slim Dungarees by Outlier, $198, are a modern (and technically advanced) take on jeans. Made with proprietary Workcloth Doubleweave Canvas (weighing in at 10 ounces), these are naturally resilient to whatever you spill on them.
Keep warm with a soft cable knit scarf like this one from The Gap, $39.95.
The Baseline Turtleneck by John Elliott, $428, is a timeless classic. Wear it to work, wear it out, wear it often.
Keep a hat close by for when the temperature dips. Try the Helvetica HO17 Pom Beanie by Stussy, $35.
Stay soft, stay stylish. Try the Index Terry Crewneck by Publish, $72. This cotton/poly blend pullover pairs well over a crisp dress shirt or flannel, or as weekend wear with the matching joggers.
