What makes a winter trend or cold-weather basic a must-have among the ladies of NYC? Well, aside from the obvious cool-to-look-at factor, there’s another element that helps solidify a piece’s place in their, or should I say our, wardrobes, and that is utility. After all, as I’ve said before, no matter what season it is, the city lifestyle calls for a certain sartorial functionality in order to help everyone go about their daily activities seamlessly.
As you may have predicted I was about to say, this trope rings truest when it comes to winter, when all the effort required for commuting, lugging, and day-to-night transitioning is only amplified by the need to also be able to battle wind, snow, and cold (usually all three). So, just what is in the New York girl's cold-weather arsenal this season? Simply continue on to see the seven items and, of course, shop them while you’re at it.
