Packing Cool

This weekend I will be packing for a real winter in China. For all you Angelinos, that means a biting 10 degrees, not a beachy 70. I will stick to packing light by packing smart without losing my packing cool.
The layered cardigan does all the work for you. Double layers keep you warm and add dimension to your getup. Left: Boy by Band of Outsiders Gathered Hem Cardigan; Center: ALC Striped Overlay Cardigan; Right: Comme des Garcons Vest Front Shirt

I always neglect my hands when I dress for the cold, but I've noticed that keeping them warm and covered does wonders. The longer the better and the redder the radder. Left: Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti Zipper Gloves; Center: ASOS Elbow Patch Gloves; Right: Isabel Marant Leather Gloves
I have this theory that ribbed clothes are insulating. The air is trapped in the space between the ribs and helps insulate the body like a thermos. Or am I thinking of the puffer jacket? Anyway, I'm a sucker for tectonic looking objects. Left: Rick Owens Short Brancusi Wedges; Center: Maison Martin Margiela Cardigan; Right: Rag & Bone Hayle Cropped Sweater

FYI: There is a Barney's Warehouse Sale at the LA Convention Center from Feb 11-18 and Steven Alan Outpost is having an extra 25% off all outerwear and shoes until Feb 20. Happy shopping.
