What-To-Wear Weather

What do you wear when it’s 30° in the morning and 60° by afternoon? I pile on the layers and top off with a knit poncho or wrap. I picked up this grey cashmere poncho ages ago and it’s one of the most beloved items in my wardrobe.

  • A few weeks ago, I left Chicago in 30 degree weather bound for Palm Beach to spend a long weekend. I put on my white jeans and never looked back. Once I got back to Chicago, the weather had thankfully warmed up a tad, but I could not put my white jeans away and started wearing them them with my over-sized Emerson Fry sweaters and sneakers. Another one of my staples in this kind of weather are J.Crew’s long sleeved cashmere T’s. Keeps you warm, but not too warm.

  • I too love ponchos. Last year I bought two – navy and grey.

    They were worn from late spring through to early autumn.

    I love cosy big cashmere scarves or ponchos as throw it on pieces- invaluable.

  • Hi Preston

    Ankle dressing dilemma……!
    Such a simple thing , but what does one wear when it is too cold to have bare , tanned ankles but still wearing sneakers or shoes that need a sock /ankle dressing ?(non boot i.e. )

  • I love the hobo on you (and the whole outfit). I’m hesitating between the tan and black/anthracite/navy – which do you recommend?
