Why not sleigh in style this holiday season with Levi’s®?
Levi’s® senior merchants Kristina Salazar for Men’s; and Kelly Wang for Women’s walk us through some of their tips and style pointers to pull off the perfect panache for the colder weather ahead.
Now trending…
Kelly: For women, the holiday season is especially important in terms of dressing, from wear-to-work to your holiday party season. So what we always like to suggest is mixing highs and lows. If you’re wearing a black skinny jean, pair it with a sparkly top, a feminine blouse and, of course the staple, the Trucker jacket.
Another great tip is adding an element of shine to your wardrobe. Whether it’s a sparkle skirt, sparkle T-shirt, a little bit of a sparkle shoe – you can never go wrong with too much sparkle.
Also consider adding one of our hottest items of the holiday season – the 501® Skinny. It is our iconic 501® Original jean remastered for today, with a higher rise fit and a skinny leg. It’s perfectly on trend, it comes in stretch and non-stretch, and I hear that it’s flying off the shelves as well, so grab them while you can!
Kristina: If I was to offer up one tip for the gents, it’s layering!  Pair a flannel with that henley, pop a sweater over that button-down, and don’t forget the 3rd piece!  We’ve got you covered with some amazing Outerwear styles to complete any holiday ensemble, and one of the hottest items this season is the Sherpa Trucker. If you don’t already own one, you should definitely buy one, and even if you do, you should check out the new iterations we’re bringing out this season.
You’re getting warm…warmer…warmest
Kristina: I’m really excited to talk about some of the ways that we’re bringing this concept of  “warm, warmer, warmest” to our Trucker jacket, starting with down.  This season, we launched Responsible Down Standard (RDS) down, which is fully traceable and used throughout all our down jackets. For the Down Trucker, we’ve reimagined our iconic style and added functionality through a zipper and storm flap in addition to the RDS down fill to keep you warm on those cold winter days.
Additionally, we also have wool styles across both men’s and women’s. Be sure to check out the buffalo check fit lined in our super warm Sherpa, giving you a super warm face fabric paired with a cozy lining throughout for maximum style and maximum warmth.
Kelly: In women’s the idea is all about warmth from head to toe. So we’ve introduced warmth technology into our denim in our 710 super skinny jean, which is one of our top sellers right now, as well as in our Trucker jackets.
Kelly: We’ve created warm jeans through an innovative fiber called Thermolite. This technology is woven into actual fibers of the denim and it’s insulating, so it keeps you warm even in the cold. By putting it in our best-selling 710 super Skinny jean, you’re getting the benefit of comfort, stretch, and warmth in one innovative denim.
The other thing that’s great for men’s and women’s is that we’ve added a brush back technology to the back side of the denim, so it’s super cozy plush and perfect for the winter season.
Kristina: And similar to the women’s jean we also have it in our best-selling men’s fit, the 511 Skinny. So you can get his and hers!
Layer on.
Kristina: Accessories are especially great for the holiday season and we have a lot of cold weather options: think beanies, scarves and gloves. Plenty of options to mix and match your favorites!
Kelly: Yes, we are definitely about that head-to-toe Levi’s® lifestyle look and dressing it up with third pieces and accessories. Shop on!
