At this point, you’d like to give winter the cold shoulder (and maybe a middle finger).
But your overcoat will get one last hurrah with Babette Epaulette, an over-the-top collection of fringe, feather, and chain shoulder ornaments.
Wardrobe stylist Seville Michelle Anastos whips up the audacious accessories in Long Island City, where she harnesses them to various pop stars and avant-garde fashion types. The body armor has sold out across LES boutiques (it seems regular people want to strap them on, too), but you can find a fresh assortment on the Bowery.
And stay a shoulder above the rest.
Available at Patricia Field, 302 Bowery, between Houston and East 1st Streets (212-966-4066); online at babetteepaulette.com.
