Stylists, fashion directors, and the best-dressed list will all tell you that the secret to a well-built wardrobe is versatility. A chameleon component is especially key for the resort collections, which come along just as we’re planning ski trips and sinking deeper into our layers of down. With the right cold-weather styling, these garments have the potential to bring a lightness to your look—and carry you right through to springtime.
We called upon three of the most resourceful women in the industry we know—writer Marjon Carlos, Teen Vogue editor Jessica Minkoff, and Nomia designer Yara Flinn—to show us how they master cross-season functionality with their most coveted pieces from Resort 2015.

THE LOOK: “I was really drawn to the texture and the color palette of this look. The black and jade green lace combination creates this layered, three-dimensional effect, which is so vibrant and unexpected. It immediately jolted me out of my style SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) that the winter can so easily bring on!”
PRO TIP: “Sub-zero temps can’t keep you from your social life, so tights are a necessity! And sky-high Alaïa heels add a glamorous touch to the ensemble.”

THE LOOK: “The best part about this jacket is that it’s actually really warm. It looks great paired with jeans and a sweater for a more seasonally appropriate look, and it’s versatile enough for the city and hikes in the woods.”
PRO TIP: “I personally love a ‘winter white’ look. Various shades of white and ivory look chic and modern when put together. The key to wearing white pants in the winter is pairing them with a chunky sweater or fleece and cuffing them so they sit right at the edge of a cool ankle boot.”

THE LOOK: “For someone who naturally gravitates towards black, white, navy, and grey, I can always rely on Proenza Schouler‘s Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez to deliver when it comes to an eye-catching, colorful print that I can mix into my wardrobe season after season. This top—with a pop of cobalt and a patchwork of patterns—is a perfect example.”
PRO TIP: “Whoever said it had to be warm out to wear a tank top didn’t get the layering memo. I love the idea of putting a statement top over a classic, solid-colored knit, like this one from The Row.”
