Après-Ski Chic: What to Wear On and Off the Slopes (or Just in Freezing Temps)

Whether you’re slaloming in Switzerland or shoveling snow in your driveway, you’ll want to look sporty and chic when the temps dip. This is the time of year that often requires extra layers to protect against the elements, but that’s no reason just to throw on knits and puffers willy-nilly. No, for the slopes or the streets, there are boots, insulated and weatherproof jackets, beanies and more to look like a snow bunny even if you’re just operating the snowblower.

Whatever the forecast or your agenda, here’s our wintry mix of seasonal styles that will keep you dry, snug and sleek come rain, snow or sleet.

Rosetta Getty Resort 2018 collection Art Interviews Style

Bicoastal Designer Rosetta Getty on Dressing with Ease and the Artists Who Inspire Her Collection

Uncomplicated yet fascinating, wearable and aspirational, comfortable but so chic: Rosetta Getty may craft the wardrobe for our times. Amid the incoherent noise and incessant news updates, structured minimalism has never been more appealing. With her Resort ’18 collection, Getty has created an entire wardrobe with clean lines and sharp tailoring that seeks to impose order while also being fluid, flattering and colorful. These are clothes to seed peace of mind and even joy. Yes, it’s possible.

Inspired by the modern minimalist works of starchitect Richard Meier and borrowing her palette from the abstract expressionist Helen Frankenthaler, Getty’s angular tunics and dresses burst with originality in sunny hues and brazen primaries.

We spoke with Getty about her (many) artistic inspirations and what she usually wears around her stunning home in L.A. and out to functions on both coasts—now we’re looking to streamline our own closets with her cashmere sets and cutout dresses.

Technical Enhancements: The Latest Developments in Sports Bras

It’s not often the most fun purchase to make, but a quality sports bra can change your life—and definitely improve your workout. Recent developments in athletic wear have also made this exercise gear much more interesting. There are new wicking fabrics, the inclusion of heat vents, hidden underwires, convertible bra straps, foam linings and other fascinating technical advancements to assist your assets. No longer just a practical, cleavage-eliminating option, women like the model Bella Hadid and the fashion blogger-cum-designer Chiarra Ferragni have been spotted on the street wearing the undergarb in some decidedly non-sporty but very sexy get-ups.

If your goal is more geared to eliminating bounce during burpees, though, we’ve rounded up the state-of-the-art performance options you should try. They’re also quite stylish, so you might just consider wearing them out beyond the gym.

Tabula Rasa Interviews Style

Tabula Rasa’s Worldly Wool Sweaters for Your Winter Travels

Emily Diamandis founded Tabula Rasa in 2013 on the philosophy of comfort and self-expression. Like adding color to a “blank slate” (the translation from Latin of “tabula rasa”), her pieces encourage women to make their mark with clothing as their palette for expression. Diamandis’s eclectic take on knitwear speaks to this modern Tabula Rasa woman, who is “fun, playful and feminine,” Diamandis says. “She’s always on the move and it’s important that her clothes fit into her lifestyle.” 

Tabula Rasa takes a page straight from Diamandis’s own life as a journey-woman, who makes her home around the globe. “It can’t not be influenced by my personal style,” Diamandis admits of the bohemian aesthetic of her collection. “It’s a part of me.” Inspired by her Bangladeshi heritage, Diamandis’s passion for textiles started at a very young age. She honed her skills practicing centuries-old textile traditions in Nepal, Cambodia and Japan, before making New York City her home base. Her career blossomed from her interests: notably she launched knitwear at rag & bone before going on to consult for Uniqlo and Altuzarra. 

True to its global roots, Tabula Rasa’s Resort 2018 collection is inspired by the pageantry of Flamenco and the opulent textiles of the Mughal Empire. It plays with proportions, fringing and crochet to create one-of-a-kind knitwear unlike any other sweater.

We spoke with Diamandis to learn where she draws her inspiration from and what personal style means to her.

Good Cheers: The Vine Street Cocktail from Our Restaurants

After a round or two of holiday parties, you might (gasp) be sick of the celebratory bubbly. If you want to keep the party going but want to switch things up, we have a cocktail suggestion that still dazzles with a simple sparkling wine float. Muddled grapes, mint and a splash of rosé give the base of lime juice and vodka in the Vine Street a crisp and refreshing flavor. Trim the glass with grapes and fresh mint, and this effervescent cocktail will look festive and continue the celebration through the new year.

Or if you want to party at our house, stop by a Nordstrom restaurant to have a Vine Street prepared for you.

Cult Gaia Ark bag SPACE Street Style Style

Cult Gaia: Instagram’s Favorite Bag Makes a Great Gift (Especially for You)

We can’t endorse all Instagram trends (car and gym #selfies will never be our thing). But one craze that we’ve liked so much it’s moved on to love is the graceful Cult Gaia bag that seems to be in the hand of every street-style star. The Ark, in particular, is something of an obsession for us—and many others, it seems. Its sleek crescent shape works with outfits both casual and formal. Its hypnotic curve subtly draws focus to its beautifully unique and instantly (Insta-ly) identifiable design.

Here, we’ve collected some of our favorite shots of the bag in action. We think you’ll develop a #crush at least as serious as ours. And disclaimer: if you post a pic of you with this bag on your Instagram account, know that we’re watching.
