Tech Out Your Winter Style

All the cool technology, with not an ounce of style sacrificed

Right now’s a great time in fashion to be fighting winter. Not too long ago, finding outerwear that didn’t wear its technical achievements on its sleeve (or sole) seemed near-impossible, but nowadays, there’s no telling what is and isn’t high-tech. (In a fantastic way.)

Want proof? Check out what’s hiding inside these sleek winter numbers.

 Surprise! Winter Style That's (Sneakily) Teched Out

Clockwise, from top left:

KEEN “Snowmass” Low Boot
Lined with KEEN’s patented KEEN.DRY™ waterproof membrane  – which cycles air out without letting any water in – these boots have nothing but dry breathability (oh, and major style) in store for feet.

Merrell “Esker” Coat
Not only is this coat totally waterproof (and seriously insulated), but a Quilted Conductor fleece liner at its back interior stores and spreads warmth throughout.

Portolano Touch Tech Gloves
Whoever said cashmere can’t be functional? These luxe gloves pack tech-friendly tabs at the index fingers, so staying in touch doesn’t entail the previously requisite frostbitten tips.

Smith Optics “Transit” Goggles
Their dual-lens construction promotes airflow (and prevents fogging). Even better, their face foam is hypoallergenic – so no awkward hives when you hit the lodge post-slopes.

Our Goodbye Winter, Hello Sale: Style for Women Boutique opens Wednesday, January 29, at 11AM ET.
