As far as Canadian clothing brands go, few strike the balance between comfy and stylish quite like Kit and Ace.
Steering clear of the pitfalls of fast fashion in favour of a timeless approach, we’ve come to appreciate the versatility of the brand’s pieces, which can seamlessly take you from Zoom meetings to Zoom cocktails in a flash.
Now, with the launch of Kit and Ace’s new location on Whyte Avenue, we’re looking forward to cozy wardrobe essentials to get us through the coldest months of the year (and the rare moments when we leave the house to run errands).
The following staple pieces are among the brand’s latest collection, and you might want to invest in more than one item to see you through Alberta’s harsh but beautiful winter.
In our books, the main attributes of a winter sweater are warm and oversized — and the Cloud Sweater has them both in spades. In addition to feeling like a hug from a cloud, the sweater is also breathable and thermoregulating (aka, it will keep you warm without making you sweaty).
This lightweight sweater is super soft and textured. Made from breathable merino wool, it’s a sweater that will take you from virtual dinners with friends to movies on the couch with ease.
This piece is a bit more of a splurge, but for good reason — it’s a wardrobe staple. The triple-layered and fully waterproof jacket has a zippered removable hood and two-way pockets. Plus, it’s a unisex design — so you and bae can be matching.
This soft, button-down fleece jacket is ideal for someone who carries everything with them. With five pockets in total — including a hidden zippered pocket on the right-hand pocket — it’s the definition of fashion meets function.
If you’re working from home or know someone who does, let us introduce you to the Comfort Pant. As the name suggests, its stretchy waistband and fabric mean these classic pants are both comfortable and stylish.
If staying warm and on-trend is your jam, these mittens are a blissful match. The natural merino wool provides just the right amount of warmth, while the knit-style serves up a classic winter look.
