February is low-key the peak of winter fashion. While many people think of it as their "slump era," fashion folks are thriving. At this point in the year, they have played around with their seasonal wardrobe enough to put together fabulous outfits on the daily. A month like this is the perfect excuse to dress with comfort first but still look good.
I'm in the midst of running around New York Fashion Week, so the laid-back style that I love to write about is currently a stranger to me. I called Kelsey Merritt, who seems to always be catching a flight, to hear about one of her latest trips. Skiing in the Swiss Alps sounds like an absolute dream, but my first question was, What are people wearing over there? Merritt answered. Below, find the best things she wore on her trip and the fashion trends she took home with her.
