Every fashion editor has a preferred sartorial season. For some, there’s nothing more thrilling than taking a much-needed mental vacation via an especially vibrant resort collection, and others are more into the time-honored fall and winter tradition of artfully piling on cozy layer after cozy layer.
Who What Wear editor Jasmine Fox-Suliaman falls decidedly into this latter camp, viewing dressing for winter in New York City as a complex but satisfying challenge to solve. “My approach to winter fashion is all about finding the balance between functionality and frivolity,” she explains. “Anything I wear this time of year must be not only fun but also functional enough to wear in NYC’s unpredictable weather. I love investing in classic pieces with a twist, such as outerwear with faux-shearling lapels.” She’s found that one retailer in particular puts out pieces that check both boxes: Free People. Below, she’s put together a pair of looks featuring her favorite pieces from the retailer that are sure to get you through anything and everything the holidays have in store.
