Winter style means one thing to me: layers upon layers. Very often, these essential layers tend to be well-made quality basics that I can break up and wear with other key wardrobe pieces. The goal is to stay as warm as possible, especially in the cold, wet winter months in Seattle. If you walk the streets of my neighborhood, you’ll find that there are some style essentials that could qualify as a PNW uniform: a chambray button up, waterproof boots, and a sturdy, water resistant coat with a hood. The look is a little bit preppy, very heritage Americana, and very laid back. G. H Bass & Co. sent over a few of their new winter styles and I loved them so much that I added them to my holiday gift shopping list, too!
If you’re unfamiliar with G. H Bass & Co., I’m sure you’d recognize their iconic Weejuns loafers that they’ve been making for 8o years — even JFK wore them! If that’s not the bees knees, then I don’t know what is. Beyond this preppy classic, G. H Bass & Co is also a purveyor of duck boots, cozy buttondowns, stylish coats, and gorgeous leathergoods. And all of these goods have proven to be layering essentials and great gifts!
My best girlfriends all live in different cities, but we all still experience the extreme weather that winter has to offer. I’m gifting a pair of the houndstooth-adorned Dorothy Duck Booties to my friend Danielle this year. Not only will they keep her feet warm and dry during the Philadelphia winter, but will keep her lookin’ all kinds of cute even if she’s just walking her wiener dogs around the block. (Yup, we both have dachshunds, ha.)
Noodle couldn’t help himself — he had to art direct my gift wrapping.
Not gonna lie, it’s been a really cold winter so far here. Now, armed with these classic winter essentials, I am ready to brave the Seattle rain!
