Cold Comfort

Fashion magazines declare the cork-soled wedge to be all the rage, and we are duly smitten—but let’s face reality: They’re not so good for scaling curbside snow banks or navigating icy sidewalks. So, embracing this reality, we took to the slopes! Lots of layers and practical, weather-resistant fibers are a fabulous match for snow, whether you’re shredding or, minus a couple of those layers, just tossing back a few in the ski lodge. The same goes for chunky knits, goggles, and color—the more vibrant the better. Even legwarmers, a resurrection we wouldn’t normally buy into, are apropos when paired with Swiss-style ski boots and polypropylene tights.
