Its raining, we're smiling.

So the weather here in NYC has recently taken a turn towards the cold, gloomy, and wet. Yep, its that time of the year again when the changing of the seasons has made itself VERY well known. Luckily, we have some pieces here at EVA that are built to combat the elements and change a drab day into a celebration of sartorial selection!

1. Imagine: its autumn, leaves are falling all around, you can see your breath as you sigh, and you're feeling romantic. What's more appropriate than a wool cape? There's as elegant as the sweeping silhouette of this Henrik Vibskov number paired with leggings and boots up to your knees (or thighs, depending on your neve). Plus pockets? We're totally sold.

2. We're suckers for jumpsuits, and are thrilled that we can continue wearing them as the thermometers drop. This particular piece by Stine Goya combines the functionaity of deep pockets and a stretchy waist with the flash of a wrap-around zipper and unexpected cut of the pants. Still not convinced that one-pieces are the key to happiness? Remember that by donning a coverall, you only have to settle on ONE piece of clothing, eliminating any stress of seperates.

3. Here at EVA, we tend to be drawn towards a darker color pallet, which is why we triumphantly embrace accessories that pop out against a sea of noir. Reminiscent of legoland & childhood nostalgia, these Henrik Vibskov mittens make us think of a time when finger painting was the pinnacle of expression, and figuring out the perfect layering pieces was was up to mom, not the difficult and task it is today.

4. The natural remedy for arctic apartments is a good ol' sweater, but the EVA girl tends to push the enevelope a bit...we say, why not wear sweater pants? These cobalt Henrik Vibskov trousers mimick the ease of a pullover, but are anything but basic. We're still not done with the drop-crotch look, and in bright blue they'll distract you from the fact that your heater hasn't been fixed since last winter.

5. Who says you can't wear dresses in the wintertime? As avid fans of frocks, we turn to longer sleeves and heavier fabrics to make our garb of choice more practical. This dress by Samantha Pleet offers a step up - a flirty cutout that is reminiscent of our favorite crop tops from summertime, but with weather-appropriate wool to keep us warm.
Samantha Pleet - Over The Top Dress ($322)

6. I DARE you to wear these thick-knit C.Neeon leggings without cracking a smile. Oh, and they'll keep your legs from freezing as well.
C.Neeon - Kauz Legging ($248)
