Today’s style lesson is how to survive when it’s -2ºF at 8 AM and 50ºF at noon. Unpredictable Iowa weather is no excuse for looking sloppy, so hang your ratty coats and mismatched mittens by the door.
This look’s je ne sais quoi comes from just how classic it is. For the Audrey Hepburn version, pair it with sleek kitten heels; for the contemporary I-live-in-Paris-and-I-hardly-even-tried-to-look-this-good take, go for a low-profile sneaker.
Go sporty with a puffer, luxe in faux fur, or even all-business with an Oxford shirt under a knit vest. Play with accessories or patterns to keep it from falling into Revenge of the Nerds territory.
