Cozycomfycool: Cold-Weather Looks

Is there any amount of cozy that’s too cozy? When the weather gets cold, the answer is no. With athleisure feeling less like a trend these days and more like a paradigm shift, designers are putting comfort at the forefront of their fashion. It’s all the better for stacking clothes and taking coziness to the max. Try stepping out of the house wearing fuzzy socks—fuzzy shoes, even—and two jackets at the same time: a middle layering piece and an overcoat. Then you shall know the true meaning of cozy. Be inspired by these looks and layer up.

Our model here is Tay Sean, rapper and producer extraordinaire. If you don’t know him, his new album, Leavings, is outstanding experimental hip-hop. Dressing-wise, he has a unique style, so we met with him ahead of time in the store so he could help choose clothes from our men’s and men’s designer departments. His reaction:

“I didn’t realize Nordstrom had so much cool stuff.”

Check out our cozy looks below and our interview with Tay Sean about his music and personal style.

Exploring Men’s Designer Pre-Fall 2016 Collections with the Guys Who Chose Them

Styles from our Men’s Designer pre-fall collections are now available on our site and in stores. We spoke with Designer Apparel Buyer Dan Drewes and Shoe Buyer Garrett Bean about key pre-fall pieces from Lanvin, Gucci, Belstaff, Jimmy Choo and Versace.

SHOP: Lanvin pants | Lanvin sweater | Lanvin topcoat | all Designer Collections

We do these Lanvin biker pants pretty much every season, in some sort of new color or fabric. For fall, we have a stretch poplin and this grey check. They have details inspired by the world of cycling, with zip ankles, articulation around the knees and a reinforced seat. The Lanvin sweater is definitely a customer favorite; it comes in a crew, V, cardigan and turtleneck. It’s actually two different fabrics. If you look closely, the sleeve is solid grey and the body is heather so it’s a subtle tonal detail. We’ve seen more brands show turtlenecks lately. The nice thing about them is they’re a ’70s nod, but you can make them look really modern too. This topcoat is an amazing, tailored piece; the fit is perfect. The khaki color is a great option for fall since it’s so dark and rich; usually khaki is lighter. Especially after everything we’ve seen for the last three years has been black or navy, it’s nice to see some color without it being bright.

London Fashion Week: Belstaff’s Polar Expedition in Leather Jumpsuits, Cozy Warm-Ups and Killer Ankle Boots

Belstaff has, of course, always imagined you going places. They’re known for their moto-ready, weather-tough jackets, boots and ready-to-wear, but come this next Fall and Winter they’re thinking you need to really explore. 

belstaffbig

Dubbed “Polar Pioneer,” the collection draws inspiration from one of history’s great female polar adventurers, Edith Ronne. Jackie, as she was known, took to the Arctic back in the pre-GPS days of 1947.

Street Style: Leaf at Loewe

It was a beautiful sunny morning in Paris today. Early-morning shows are always fun (except for having to wake up at the crack of dawn) and way less chaotic. I caught up with Leaf to snap a shot of her lovely modern-casual outfit. I am a big fan of monochromatic looks, especially in whites and neutrals. Leaf’s ribbed sweater and culottes are perfect for the season and the long suede coat is tres chic.

Street Style: Fer at Dolce&Gabbana

Suede is the texture of the season, it seems. There have been so many suede jackets on the streets, and I love them all. Granted, they’re not very practical in the Pacific Northwest (where I call home), but we’re in Milan now! This outfit on Fer Medina has a decidedly Western vibe, thanks to the suede, denim and neck scarf. A wide-brim hat and classic shades don’t hurt either.

Street Style: Elizabeth at Fendi

Fur was everywhere at Fendi! Elizabeth’s fur topper is totally intriguing. It’s got a unique cut and amazing texture. A sleek leather mini pairs well with the statement fur. Those Fendi boots are one of my favorites of the year, especially in mod white. Mirrored sunnies (the It glasses of the season, btw!) and a chic white bag complete the look.

Street Style: Andrea at Max Mara

Andrea is the queen of vintage. She manages to make vintage pieces look trendy and effortlessly cool. I love this suede ombré trench and button-front skirt. Thanks to the return of the ’70s, suede is the hottest new texture of the season. Andrea’s neutral palette and tall boots fall into the retro theme, as well.

Street Style: Negin Outside BCBG

Negin has totally mastered the modern ’70s revival. I have been on the hunt for a great suede jacket, and Negin’s fringed number is perfection. A fringed suede jacket can be tough to pull off without looking like Davy Crockett, but I’d say Negin nailed it. Her silky dress has a great pattern and I love the flowing train, which has fantastic movement in a breeze. Stiletto boots add urban femininity.
