How do you dress for an apres ski-themed dance party at Le Poisson Rouge? Wear layers, bring a hair tie, and turn to some really amazing up-and-coming designers to keep your outfit from getting lost in the mix.
1. First things first: You're going to need a pom-pom hat, and the relaxed British line YMC makes versions that are kitschy without being cheesy.
2. A shearling-lined boot from Jeffrey Campbell, the current king of the well-priced statement shoe, will keep you looking winter-y but still ready for a dance party.
3. Tom Scott's knits might be cozy and luxe, but they have a downtown, up-all-night vibe uncommon in the sweater world. Pairing this alpaca style with a camisole will keep you from getting overheated.
4. These Sophomore leggings have a long underwear look, and the bright-blue button detailing will make you feel a lot less silly about wearing them as pants.
5. Normally wearing sunglasses indoors would be unforgivable, but you can't go shade-less on the slopes. Founded in 2009, Illesteva (as in, "illest ever") has been attracting lots of attention for its frames, especially its circular Frieda ones.
