Tory Burch Amy Midi SkirtThese items caught my eye as I was browsing the Nordstrom Winter Sale. I’ve fitted some of the items onto my clients, and bought the odd piece for myself. 

  • Curio Asymmetrical Stripe Tunic: An option for those who like casual avant-garde pieces with a bohemian flare. Check out the back of the tunic. 
  • Nordstrom Collection Leather Trim Cashmere Car Coat: It was stunning on one of my tall clients as a coat alternative. Cocoon in style and slightly bohemian. Warm, cozy and different. Might need to size down a size. 
  • Burberry Brit Patterned Wool Sweater: I’ve been eyeing this pullover for a while. The cut is sublime if you like to wear high necklines in fluid fits. It’s pretty lightweight and a little short so consider yourself warned. Excellent with belted trousers and jeans or with skirts. 
  • Marc Jacobs Harriet Crop Wool Sweater: I bought this pullover because it’s a sweatshirt style in a dressier knitwear fabrication. Almost like a boiled wool. I love the colour, its ‘80s integrity, and enjoy wearing it with white jeans and white booties. It’s non-itch, short and runs true to size, although oversized. 
  • Sandro Tube Tee: Sandro is a French brand that is finally available at Nordstrom, and I love it. It’s modern and trendy, yet the styling is refined and crisp.The pieces are gorgeously simple and interesting with minimal detail. This tee is a great way to wear the mixed media trend in a lightweight fabrication. Check out the rest of Sandro’s offerings
  • Tory Burch Amy Midi Skirt: It’s the start of the tulip skirt trend we will see for Spring 2014. Elegant and a fun way to wear a Winter skirt with slim tall boots and fitted sweater. 
  • KUT from the Kloth Print Black Brocade Skinny Jeans: Soft, stretchy and interesting. Two of my clients bought these and are happy with their fit and comfort level. Fab tucked into mid-calf or tall boots. 
  • La Marque Exaggerated Collar Leather Jacket: A crisp avant-garde piece in a light shade of cocoa. Stay away from this style if you have a shorter neck. 
  • La Marque Drape Collar Jacket: Another avant-garde piece in a lighter weight with a short back hemline. A good shape for an apple shaped body type and short neck. Read the rave reviews. 
  • St. John Collection Jennifer Crepe Marocain Pants: Tailored and fluid. Love the front ankle vents and vibrant shade of blue. 
  • Donna Karan Collection Draped Jersey Tunic: This shape is excellent on a narrow hip and broad shoulder line. It drapes softly over the shoulder and midriff providing ample structure on the hip. 

There are many more items on sale, especially for men on the Half Yearly Sale. Remember to stock up on warm and insulating items now if your Winters are long and cold. Spring collections hit stores in a month and clothing will be a lot more lightweight, which for many of us is the coldest part of the year.
