Is it possible to offset New England’s tendency to throw in the fashion towel for six months? (Last week’s snowprise casts early doubt.)
Chunky knit outerwear from Boston’s Third Piece provides a form-function twofer, elevating drab ensembles while providing extra warmth.
Throw on usual, nondescript cold-weather garb (skinnies, black turtleneck, flat boots), then add a pocketed blanket scarf, floppy beret, or double-thick fingerless gloves. Step out into freezing world. Repeat with infinity scarf, braided headband, and padded mittens.
Variance in color choice (brights, pastels, earth tones) had no deleterious effect on stylish success rate.
Sartorial frown turned upside down.
