Icebreaker merino wool baselayers are our ski slope staple, but a new purchase has us taking our favourite sporty label to the streets.
At the heart of any good wardrobe is a solid roster of high-quality basics, which is why we’re loving the New Zealand-based brand’s Journey collection – and couldn’t resist taking home the gorgeous heathered grey henley ($119.99) when we last visited their Montreal flagship.
So flattering, perfectly stretchy, ultra-soft, cozy in any weather… It’s the ultimate wear-anywhere, keep-forever piece that we’ll pair with everything from a patterned pencil skirt (for effortless, J.Crew-esque chic) to jeans and Cons (a.k.a. the perfect brunch ensemble).
You can never go wrong with an investment in enduring style. —Christine Laroche
