How is it that the bubble-knit just seemed to appear out of nowhere??? (the hat – is there a better name for that knit?) On the coats at Proenza and so quickly seen in the audience. It’s really like some folks get sent a memo. . .
I agree about the tights — all the girls here in NYC are wearing them, and I don’t know how they can stand it. I guess I could ask my girlfriend. I, too, am contemplating getting a pair to wear under my jeans. Probably go with the Under Armour cold weather leggings as they wick away the inevitable sweat.
To anonymous 5:34pm– I live in NY and yes, tights are all over town. I’ve practically been living in them all fall/winter– they are such a wardrobe staple! Yes, they are warm, but you need to find the right brand. Wolford, for one, makes really warm tights– but they are pricey! I have a whole stack of mid-priced brands (including Hue, etc) that keep my legs toasty despite the weather. This past week has been brutally cold, but I’ve been wearing skirts with tights and I’ve been fine (if you can call it that). When paired with high-shaft boots and a good long-ish coat, you’d be good to go!
