If this cold snap is any indicator, we’re in for a record-cold winter. In an effort to stay warm, we scouted out some stand-out coats and vests available in Memphis that will keep you cozy no matter what the mercury reads.
From biker-inspired glamour to strict tradition, Barbour makes casual, ultra-functional outerwear a stylish choice. Why not get one monogrammed for a Christmas present? Always in and made to last, so he or she will love it for a lifetime! The Barbour collection is available at Oak Hall.
Outerwear can be your luxe love for wintertime. Need to rationalize the expense? Well, it is certainly functional, and if you decide to splurge for one of these designer pieces, it’s a wardrobe item you can wear almost anywhere and likely for the next few months, kind of like those high-end boots you slip on every day! These wonderfully warm options keep you cozy in couture all season long.
Two more jackets that will layer well and add a smart edge to your ensembles, both found at Lavish.
Another pivotal, high-style piece for anyone who loves to layer is this plush vest by Fabiana Filippi. Spotted at the 20twelve boutique, it makes a wonderful wardrobe builder.
Some drab winter days just call for a little color. Let everyone else be neutral while you bundle up for the football stands in this motley coat from Lansky 126.
Kittie Kyle has a wall of wonderful vests in neutral tones, but these colorful options — blue and red — will add a little spirit to your ensemble.
Are you one who likes a ruffle here and there? This coat comes in oatmeal, red, purple, two shades of blue and more. The Luii Ruffle Jacket is one of the most popular outerwear items at Lansky 126.
Another top layer that will get you through an arctic outdoor event in style is this fur-trimmed vest at Lori James. What’s distinctive about this one is the length. Similar vests tend to stop at the waist, but if you like a longer version of the sporty puffer vest, consider this option.
In one of the season’s best colors, a deep powder blue, the stylish shape of this coat says, “I just returned from Paris!” A favorite, found at 20twelve.
For those who want to be simultaneously warm and sophisticated, this is the coat for you. The color won’t compete with and will complement any combination underneath. Wear to a formal evening out, as pictured, but wouldn’t it look smart with just a pair of jeans and casual top, too? Found at 20twelve.
Dress down in a cozy fleece. Men and women will look nonchalantly dapper in this new, rich color by Life is Good, a wonderful, locally owned shop downtown where you’ll find a multitude of comfortable layering options, from this season’s plaids to a range of rustic outerwear for everyday.
If you find a True Grit fleece from the “Frosty Tipped Pile Collection” in your size, then grab it! Once again, this half-zip pullover is a hot commodity. We have seen them at Oak Hall in East Memphis, Dixie Pickers in Collierville and Hinton & Hinton Outfitters in Oxford, MS. Multiple colors are available in this True Grit style. Though equally popular with the ladies, look for it in the men’s department.
In Memphis, we welcome the cold snap in style!
