The Highsnobiety Winter Wardrobe Manual is a guide to dressing well when temperatures plummet. Expect big coats, padded pants, snug accessories, and hibernation-ready homeware.
December came and went, and with the new year we begin to think of our spring outfits. How mistaken we are. It's easy to forget that the first three months of the year are often the coldest, and that's certainly true right now. There's one very easy way to skip the shivers, though. Namely, down jackets.
Down is a layer of fine feathers found against the skin of birds, making it a super lightweight, and highly insulating material. That's what makes a down jacket so essential in the cold. After a few minutes of wear, the down feathers trap your warmth within the coat, staying warm for hours without any bulk. Plus, with down jackets offering the appeal of HH-118389225's technical expertise or the visual punch of Gucci x The North Face, warmth comes with an equal dose of style this season.
