Tis’ the season to be merry… and warm and cozy, especially if you are headed to a ski resort for the holidays like I am. I’m excited to spend five days in Aspen, Colorado and get in a little snowboarding time with the fam.
Function + fashion is my credo, therefore braving the arctic temps in style is of utmost importance. I usually pack my chunkiest winter sweaters for a ski vacation, and then layer a tee underneath for extra toastiness and comfort.
I am most excited to finally wear my beige cable knit Rosie Assoulin alpaca sweater that has multicolored patches on the sleeves – an interesting detail that adds the perfect pop of color.
I plan on pairing this sweater with my favorite Colovos tapered blue denim jeans and Gianvito Rossi suede ankle boots. Pssst…these boots have a rubber sole which is the safest of high heel ankle boots to wear in the snow.
Next on my list is this green and white striped cashmere sweater by it brand Kule. Fact: Kule’s heavy knit cashmere knit sweaters are the warmest. I have brought different variations of them on many past ski vacays and they always deliver. I am also eyeing their blue stripe and wine stripe sweater options – addicted to stripes and Kule, what can I say?
This grey cropped cashmere sweater from Reformation is definitely the lightest of all the sweaters that I’m packing, but… it just works well with everything. I have been seriously wearing it on repeat. I love the style, fit and it works really well with any high waisted pants, skirt, or layered over a dress. I have a pair of tapered black leather pants and this combo works perfectly. I will complete this outfit with my black leather Prada ankle boots, another perfect boot to wear out west.
Now, for the party animal in me, this Ulla Johnson mustard/yellow and brown zebra print sweater with the most fabulous balloon sleeves is a must. In general, Ulla Johnson is a great source for chunky knit sweaters that have a cool (but seriously warm) bohemian feel. I am pairing this sweater with a pair of Zara jeans that is a knock off of a Mugler style that I just couldn’t spring for.
Last but not least, is this Fair Isle Celine alpaca sweater that I scored on sale at Saks. I originally had my eye on a similar version by Altuzarra but they were sold out in my size. For those who want in on the fair isle sweater at a more affordable price point, Frame makes this fabulous option. Surprise, surprise, I will work this winter sweater with yet another pair of skinny jeans and over the knee brown suede knee-high boots.
