Dear boys…men (whatever), you have the heart of a lumberjack (outdoorsman), but the big city area code. Well the cottage chic look, as requested, is the perfect style to get you through the winter.
For tops focus on thick knits. For me, a cowichan is almost the definition of the cottage sweater. Plaid is obviously a given, flannel for a cozier feel, or cotton for a sleeker look. Since demin was and is so popular this year I figure why not throw this into the cottage chic look too!?
Although you might imagine a cottage pant as a beat up cargo, I’m gonna go ahead and say that a slim-fit khaki or slightly worn out cord is much more appropriate for you city slickers trying to give off the ruffing-it style. Go for a leather boot that resembles more of a desert boot, or an authentic hiking boot. Take a chance with the shoes, I mean if Sorels came back in style, pretty much anything is worth a try.
Having lived in Whistler, I can’t say anything about outerwear accessories, without saying purchase a slouchy toque. For a warmer more up-North style, go for the fur-lined hat, ear-flaps and all. Scarves are sometimes a touchy subject with boys. Let’s just say it looks way better than a neck warmer or balaclava AND it’s +5 points in any girl’s book. Of course the typical go-to for a cottage style is a parka, but if you want to try out this season’s must have jacket, go for a leather/shearling.
