A Lady’s Winter Essentials

As cooler temperatures arrive, warm cashmere and romantic knit capes drape shoulders with head turning elegance. Chic styles from Fendi, Akris, and Lanvin classically dress a pair of tuxedo pants while still stunning to wear to the Opera.  Mink Loro Piana suede gloves charmingly compliment a dramatic cape with divine perfection. | Dawn del Russo
