Brave The Cold: Vintage Winter Pieces To Try Now

We here at C.Mads may be in Sunny Miami, but a lot of our clients and friends are not so lucky. Snow storm Hercules laid down a thick blanket of white snow all over the North East and even though school might have been canceled, people still have to commute. We know what it’s like to want to go out in the freezing weather and still look chic, even when your toes are frozen. So, we picked out some of our favorite winter essentials, all available online, that are perfect for braving the colder months, all while looking undeniable cool. Adding classic Vintage pieces to your closet is the perfect way to spice up your routine. Well, Vintage and a latté.

First things first: the coat. Every fashionista needs a stylish coat that’s both cozy & appealing. Try this brightly hued Chloe Turquoise Cashmere Coat for a vibrant pop of color against a sea of black and grey. With 60’s style and grace this coat will stay relevant through years to come.
