With the arrival of winter-like temperatures, you may be resigning yourself to a uniform of triple-thick sweaters and oppressively heavy outerwear for the next few months. Rough. But once you’ve finished ranting against the seemingly endless days of hat hair ahead, we suggest cheering yourself up with the ray of light that is Vince’s recently launched pre-spring collection. Characterized by airy fabrics, crisp neutrals, and soft textures, it’s a hopeful assurance that this bulkiest of style seasons won’t actually last forever.
From an iconic anorak to a silk shirt you’ll want to wear every single day, the lineup is overflowing with transitional style worth enduring the freeze for. But you can also start wearing plenty of its best pieces now. So to help you break up your wardrobe of wool and down, we’re giving you a shot at scoring your favorites, gratis. Enter to win a $2,500 Vince gift card below. Then click through the adjoining slideshow to see highlights from the collection, along with tips for working them into your current look.
The collection lives up to the brand’s reputation for exceptional, highly crafted essentials. A preview:
Remember the carpenter jeans you loved circa ’98? The grown-up version features a twisted side seam, refined fit, and contemporary crop, and looks great with an Italian knit tank.
Voluminous silhouettes feel fashion-forward at the moment, but there’s a threshold at which the look becomes less versatile. A slightly oversized shirt and relaxed (not baggy) denim are perfect for both work and weekend.
Speaking of volume, an effective way to one-up a no-longer-exciting style is to find a version with reworked proportions. Throw this elongated bomber on to instantly look a step ahead of the trend curve.
