Every winter, our fashion FOMO sets off a longing to drape ourselves in merino and cashmere—which, of course, is a surefire recipe for overheating in a typical Miami December. But you don’t have to give up on the season’s coziest garment entirely. These stylish knits and toppers scratch that sartorial itch without making you shvitz.
An oversize neckline is just what we need to keep us refreshed and seasonally appropriate.
Free People ($68)
Looks like a trench, acts like a lightweight shirt and makes any outfit 90 percent chicer.
Guess Factory ($50)
Can’t decide between a sweater and a jacket? Get the best of both worlds in one super-cozy piece.
Michael Michael Kors ($130)
Metallic Bomber Jacket
A little extra warmth, a whole lotta cool. Besides, there’s no such thing as too much sparkle.
Kinda like the rebel of winter sweaters. Not to mention a perfect fit for Miami’s climate.
Similar to an off-the-shoulder look, a cold-shoulder number is equal parts trendy and well ventilated.
Classic Leather Jacket
It’s the little black dress of outerwear. Oh, and this one easily transforms into a cropped version thanks to its removable zip-off bottom.
Put away your sewing kit: A few rips are a good thing when it comes to an otherwise classic crewneck.
