Editor's Picks: A Winter Wonderland of Fashion
Winter wardrobes get a bad rap. Sure, they’re great for masking those pesky “holiday pounds.” But let’s face it: “Bulky” and “oversized” just can’t compete with the form-fitting allure of sizzling summer styles (unless you’re Kriss Kross in the ‘90s).
With cooler temperatures on the horizon, I’m on a mission to reconcile practicality with trendiness. That means your clients aren’t far behind. Want to get fashionable with fleece? Here are three items that promote cozy chic for frigid conditions.

It’s not just a clever Gambit: the Rogue Men’s Hood from Brandwear Basics Ltd. is a Beast of a hoodie that will help you weather any Storm, no matter how Wolverine-like in intensity. (OK, maybe that was one X-Men reference too many.) The wind- and water-resistant hoodie has a contrasting flatlock stitch, a contour hood and disguised inner pockets. It is available in charcoal mix or gray mix color.
Fair Heather Fan
Sometimes, when you put three heathers together, you get Heathers, the ’80s teen comedy. Other times, you get the Women’s Heathered Fleece Pullover from Charles River Apparel, available in oatmeal heather, jade heather or navy heather color. One features Winona Ryder and Christian Slater. The other features elasticized hem and cuff binding, princess seams, and a stand-up, tricot-lined collar. We’ll let you figure out which is which.
The worst part about winter? Having to sacrifice style for silly things like “not getting frostbite.” Compromise no longer with the PolarGlove from Suntex Industries. The 9.1 oz., 100 percent polyester fleece gloves come in 14 colors and have an anti-pilling finish. S/M and M/L sizes are available.
