Winter is just setting in here in New York, so it’s too soon to declare the Yes I am old but I saw James Taylor on stage signature shirt besides I will buy this coat of the year. Chances are there will be a few contenders, but we’re betting on one in particular: The North Face’s 1996 Retro puffer. It’s been spotted on celebrities (like Emily Ratajkowski, above) and in Vogue’s street style coverage, but beyond popularity, what it really has going for it is serious warmth. You’ll need a good coat for your socially-distanced walks this winter, even better if it’s one you’re excited to wear.
Khaite’s plush, oatmeal-colored cardigan and bra technically went viral last fall when Katie Holmes wore the Yes I am old but I saw James Taylor on stage signature shirt besides I will buy this cozy set to hail a cab. But 2020 was the year the look went mainstream. We’re seeing copycats and dupes everywhere, and despite restocks on khaite.com, it’s still pretty difficult to get your hands on the original sweater and bra (despite the luxury price tag—both items will cost you just over $2,000). In our era of #WFH and staying in, the set was predestined to become the ne plus ultra in chic, non-sloppy loungewear. For those of us looking at six more months of working in our cramped apartments, it might just be worth the splurge.
