What We Want To Have Now: 01.04.2023

Clockwise, from left to right: Toasty mittens, lined high-top sneakers, slouchy beanie, trapper hat and a thermal top that isn’t boring.

HAPPY 2023. Despite a spate of balmy days, wintry blasts are not in the rearview mirror. Meet the challenge with our cozy but chic choices of cold-weather accessories.

I came across these Tremblant Moccasins in a Sundance Catalog store in Westport, Connecticut. I didn’t know Sorel, known for their boots, made indoor/outdoor slippers, but I’m loving the look of the hand-stitching, fleece lining and contrasting wraparound rubber soles. They sell for $88.


Winter days can be dreary. Sundance Catalog’s sherbet stripe socks are anything but. Artfully mismatched, this cheery duo of cotton, nylon and lycra sells for $39.


If you’re committed to your black puffer jacket or coat, at least add some color with cashmere striped gloves from the Uniqlo and Marni collaboration.

Balaclavas are not my favorite cold-weather head covering. But I do like the bright color on Rachel Comey’s wool-and-alpaca blend headgear ($225) and the way it’s rolled up and worn as a hat.

We think the slouchy style of this hat with a pom pom makes it a more flattering option for many of us than a head-squashing beanie. Made of 100% merino wool, it’s partially lined with fleece to keep the heat from escaping. It sells for $50 from Cajoli Boutique.

The aim of a trapper hat is to rebuff the elements. If that’s yours, too, set your sights on Ugg’s sherpa puff topper. It’s $75 at Anthropologie.

Sometimes you feel like wearing boots; sometimes you don’t. For those don’t times, Cariuma’s high-top Therma sneakers ($149) will slough off the slush (they’re waterproof) and ensure your toes are toasty.

Gloves may be sleek and sculpting, but Kurt Geiger’s raspberry cable-knit mittens with metallic thread accents will keep your hands warmer and are adorable. They’re $58 at Bloomingdale’s.

For her collaboration with Peruvian Connection, former Harper’s Bazaar editor Glenda Bailey put on another hat—designer— bringing a new perspective to the brand. One of the results is this alpaca vest with Fair Isle kind of stripes in rich colors. Just what you need for a pop of pattern, as well as warmth. It’s reduced to $169 from $218.

Stylish long underwear is practically an oxymoron. But this layering turtleneck, an excellent blend of color and warmth, is good-looking just on its own. From Uniqlo’s collab with Marni, it’s $29.90.

    I’ve seen the Uniglo/Marni collab in person and pretty much wanted everything. The gloves would be a good way to pace my spending. Good stuff here.

  2. As usual, I like/want everything. However, this time the must-have is the layering turtleneck—so attractive and such a great price!
