Is it too early to think about the holiday gifting season? We don’t think so, especially when the items we’re highlighting today are essential to the cold temperatures and wet weather we’ve been experiencing this fall.

The event was to celebrate the return of Nau Clothing to the East Coast and the opening of their New York pop-up shop.

Lands’ End Holiday 2014 Collection

When one typically thinks of winter and holiday fashion, chunky knit sweaters, lots of plaid, and cozy wool come to mind; and we love when fashion labels fully embrace those signature holiday details. Hence why we love the Lands’ End Holiday 2014 Collection. The collection is bursting with classic plaids such as Tartans and tattersall; the colors, prints and silhouettes associated with the holiday season, in some of the most stylish options. We’re especially excited about their Stewart plaid pieces, a white-based plaid we hope to see again next holiday season. And of course Land’ End offers the personal touch on gift ideas with monogramming on everything from scarves, to sweaters and totes.

There’s so much to love this holiday from Lands’ End, the chic quilted parkas, equestrian jackets, and wool pea coats with leather trims, faux fur stoles juxtaposed with chunky knits, the chic year-round cashmere sweaters with a fun pop of color trimmed on the inside collar, and inner sleeve cuff, and of course your favorite Lands’ End accessories in the wonderful, seasonal patterns.

One gift (really, more than one) we’re really looking forward to receiving are the Lands’ End holiday treats. We’re looking forward to devouring the delicious Sea Salt Caramels, Cranberry Almond Myrtles, Peppermint Crunch Cookies, and English Butter Toffee. These delicious items come perfectly wrapped in your favorite Lands’ End patterns.
