Seasons or year round sunshine?
Some embrace the snow-capped mountains and take off for an alpine adventure while others flock to the South for sun-drenched beach days. Winter isn’t always welcomed by all, but for a girl that grew up in Southern California, the thought of a snowy Winter is magical (even the sight of rain is amazing)!
This Winter at Teryn Grey we’ve had the opportunity to embrace the cold Winter weather in one of our favorite destinations: Aspen, Colorado. From the ski slopes to Aspen’s annual Snow Polo Championship, we’re sharing some of our tricks for making the transition from sundresses to wool coats easy. We’re covering Winter neutrals, discussing the faux-fur movement in the fashion industry, and featuring one of our favorite coats that have embraced some harsh Winter weather. That being said, there’s a whole lot more taking place behind the scenes. Have you been following us on Instagram?
We’re currently preparing for all new fabulous experiences that await us in Europe this Spring. Think rustic hideaways, afternoon wine tastings, and landscapes that inspired the likes of poets and artists.
Winter With Cole Haan
When you’ve become so acquainted with year round average temps of 72 degrees, heading to the snow-capped mountains can be a daunting task especially in the wardrobe department. For those having grown up in Southern California, it’s not always easy to transition from warm weather favorites to bulky Winter necessities. And let’s face it, buying Winter clothes can get expensive. So if you’re one that doesn’t find themselves in snowy locales often, focus on purchasing a couple investment pieces that will last you years to come. Start with a great Winter coat.
From the streets of Stockholm, Sweden to the slopes of Aspen, Colorado, this blue Cole Haan coat has braced some harsh Winter weather. It’s a go-to piece for its quality, durability, and stylish silhouette. It’s a simple piece that will pair well with any outfit.

Has faux-fur found it’s permanent place on the runway?
Fur, has indeed, played a significant role in human history as individuals relied on it for its durability and warmth. What started out as a necessity, quickly turned into a symbol of exclusivity, but there’s a huge movement happening in the fashion industry right now as high-end fashion brands are opting to go fur-free. In the August 2017 edition of Vogue Paris, a faux-fur clad Gisele Bundchen cuddled baby animals in an editorial that emphasized, “wearing real fur is never an option!” Shortly after, news broke that Gucci had announced their commitment to going fur-free, joining the ranks of other fashion houses such as Giorgio Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, and Ralph Lauren.

Back In Black
It can be a lot of fun to play with bold hues and dramatic patterns, but time and time again you’ll circle back to the one color that will never go out of style: Black. It’s simple, classic, and timeless. It’s a great color for the colder months of Winter when we prefer a more monochromatic palette. Whether you’re heading to the office and need something business casual or you’re dressing up for a night on the town, black fits any and every occasion. But if you do find that the black on black look is a bit too plain for you, add some interest by mixing fabrics and textures, or elevating your accessories.

What To Wear To Snow Polo
for the ladies…
Sundresses, wedges, and large sun hats are usually the must-have pieces for many polo spectators. From high-end to casual, almost anything goes for a Sunday spent out on the field, but when it comes to Snow Polo there are a few notable differences when it’s time to assemble your outfit. When dressing for Snow Polo there are two main goals: comfort and warmth. Think layers. Oversized coats, knee-high boots, and fun accessories always go! So whether you’re attending Aspen’s annual Snow Polo Championship or you’re taking off to the alpine towns of Kitzbuhel and St. Moritz, pack your Winter best. After all, even Town & Country mentioned, “dressing for the occasion is arguably the best part.”
