Intern Picks: Winter Staples

Keep your seasonal style in check with these winter-friendly wears.

Canada’s cooler months have most of us opting for practical essentials that will stand the test of time. But durability and functionality can be achieved whilst keeping your fashionista status in check.

French Connection makes it easy with this 80’s inspired wool blend coat. Fully lined and double breasted, this winter white is a sure thing. A little snow fall keeping you from enjoying a night cap with the ladies? Thakoons’ got you covered in an easy mohair-blend cardigan. The round neck fights the sniffles, while a fold-over collar front with concealed fasteners gives you wearable options. Throw on black tights with this number and slip your feet into a pair of warm winter-ready boots.

For fabulous footwear, you might like this over-the-knee leather option from Aldo. Straps and buckles allow for a little edge and a shearling interior leaves no room for compromising warmth. Solid traction on the bottom has me sold for trekking through uneasy ground with confidence. DVF’s multicoloured, sheer voile crinkled scarf is a great accent piece for those wishing to add a little fun to an overall minimal look. With feline print making waves this seasons, you’ll be on point all winter long.
