    Though fall is often described as the best season when it comes to fashion, we think winter style deserves some extra love, too. Luxe coats, ultra-soft knits, shearling-lined boots and statement-making scarves and toques have us dreaming of ski trips with friends and family and cozying up by the fireplace with a hot cocoa in hand watching the snow fall.

    With plenty of fashionable and functional options, you can curate a winter wardrobe that will keep you looking stylish while helping you withstand the elements that come with a Canadian winter.

    As you prepare to put together your winter wardrobe, make sure to check out our new digital service StyList, exclusive to Yorkdale.

    Après Ski Chic

    The après ski aesthetic is winter’s answer to last summer’s “coastal grandmother” trend. Whether you’re planning on hitting the slopes in Aspen or simply just want to channel your inner Lady Gaga as Patrizia Reggiani in House of Gucci, you can easily emulate that feeling of relaxed luxury with the unofficial post-slopes uniform of bright puffer jackets, chunky cable knits, shearling accessories and of course, statement sunglasses. Bonus points if you add anything and everything Fair Isle.

    Knits, please!

    A moment for the true icon of winter fashion: knitwear. From merino wool turtlenecks to chunky crewneck sweaters, luxe cashmere cardigans and ribbed knit midi-dresses, knit pieces are the ultimate winter wardrobe staple. What makes this icon so, well, iconic, is that you can mix things up to suit various styles (or moods). For a classic look, opt for a cream-coloured cable knit sweater over jeans. Feeling bold? A colour-blocked cardigan will help you nail the dopamine dressing trend. The options are truly endless.

    Boots Made for Walking

    Hot girl walks aren’t just made for summer – so long as you have a good pair of winter boots to help you brave the elements. When shopping for that perfect winter boot, you’ll want to look for the following: something insulated, something water-resistant or waterproof and something with a non-slip sole to avoid any falls. A classic shearling-lined Chelsea boot is a no-fail pick, but if you’re feeling daring, try a knee-high puffer boot or a quilted metallic ankle boot to really amp up your winter style.

    Winter Toppers

    We like to think of outerwear as the star of your winter wardrobe. It’s the one piece (aside from your footwear) that people will see while you’re out and about and can really make or break your outfit. Fortunately, there are plenty of practical and stylish options that will help you look and feel winter ready, such as teddy bear toppers, laid-back puffers and chic, classic wool coats.

    Sleek Shoulder Bags

    While top handle bags were a hit this summer, consider trading yours in for a sleek shoulder bag during the winter months. They’re much easier to carry (especially when you’re wearing mittens or gloves), so long as you choose one with a strap long enough to fit over your winter coat. If you want to add a little oomph to your winter handbag opt for rich colours like oxblood or chocolate brown or consider choosing one with interesting textures like faux fur or shearling.

    Hats, mittens, and scarves are a necessity for Canadian winters, so why not have some fun with these winter wardrobe essentials? Indulge in your love for logo-mania with monogrammed scarves and hats, or splurge on shearling mittens that spark joy while keeping your extremities warm.
