#Winter #Socks #Men #Feet #Warm #Dry

Few things are capable of rivaling the borderline absurd amount of comfort achieved by lounging next to a fireplace when it’s cold outside. Coltrane keeping the turntable warm? Nice accompaniment. Finger of bourbon with a s’mores chaser? Definite contender.

But all the creature comforts in the world are for naught if your feet aren’t armed with the best winter socks for men. Yes, I just referenced foot-arms. Picture it. Hilarious. Moving on.

To put it plainly, those are not the types of moments you want to squander by covering your extremities with subpar materials. And with that humble mission in mind, it’s time to get said extremities cozy with our picks for the best winter socks on the market today.

Key Takeaways

The best winter socks for men are the ones that work best for you. That said, there’s a lot of gray area in there—it all comes down to what you’ll be getting into and how you define performance in a sock. Our top pick is all about function, which is key when you’re dealing with below-freezing temperatures. But good news: form is also well represented. Fair Isle and s’mores, anyone?

smartwool Cushion Crew Winter Socks

Size range: S-XL  | Material: 56% Merino Wool, 11% Nylon, 31% Recycled nylon, 2% Elastane  | Colors: 5

This being a list of the best winter socks for men, you can bet I’ve included options that run the gamut in terms of what you might find yourself getting into when the temps start to drop. Yes, we’ve got your snowboarding, running, hiking, and fire pit-ing needs covered. But chances are, you’re actually here looking for an absolute workhorse. The type of socks that’ll trek up a blustery winter mountain with you, give you a high-five at the peak, and ask for more.

If that describes your humbly aspirational footwear needs, this merino wool specimen from Smartwool is what you’re looking for. Little form and mostly function, the pair features a dense, cushiony layer to absorb impact and keep your feet from screaming at you and your active winter lifestyle. Moisture-wicking: check. Retention of warmth even in extreme conditions: yes. There’s a time and place for precious socks, and this isn’t it.

ThundersLove Winter Socks

Size range: One Size  | Material: 55% Wool, 20% Silk, 23% Polyamide, 2% Elastane | Colors: 3

Not all wool socks are created equal. Some are itchy and cumbersome. Some are subpar and stiffen with age. Others are these rib knit socks from Thunders Love by way of Closed.

Made with pride by experienced craftspeople in small Portuguese workshops, what makes this pair some of the best winter socks for men is the large percentage of silk incorporated into their majority-wool construction. This carefully curated mix makes them incredibly soft and comfortable without losing any of the warming effects you’d expect from wool. Add this pair to your stable of city socks to be deployed on those brisk winter nights when walking from haunt to haunt isn’t out of the question.

Myrqvist Ludvig Merino Socks

Size range: 8-12  | Material: 85% Merino Wool, 15% Polyamide  | Colors: 1

When it comes to socks (and almost any garment, really) perhaps no single fabric is as useful and versatile as merino wool. It wicks away moisture and sweat during the warmer months and locks in heat during the colder months. Beyond that, it’s simply one of the most comfortable materials you can toss over your feet when the temperature starts to drop.

Myrqvist makes it onto our list of the best winter socks for men by providing a subtly stylish pair of calf-high socks in a versatile forest green. Expect the same technical performance as you would from any merino wool garment, only with the added bonus of teaming up seamlessly with a suit or other semi-formal outfit scenario.

Percival Melange Socks

Size range: One Size; 6-9.5  | Material: 80% Cotton, 18% Polyamide, 2% Elastane  | Colors: 1

Percival’s made-in-Portugal warm socks for men come in a handful of handsome colors and are made to be seen rather than covered up with jeans or boots. Their subtle yet striking design makes them ripe for late-fall and early-winter afternoons spent catching up with friends around a brewery- or distillery-adjacent fire pit.

Their mix of high-quality cotton, polyamide, and elastane helps keep things breathable and dry beneath the shoes. So while I wouldn’t recommend these melange cotton beauties for your more extreme outdoor pursuits, they certainly wouldn’t be out of place on a brisk hike or, say, on the mean snowy streets of Aspen.

Unrecorded Yellow Socks

Size range: 6-12  | Material: 85% Organic Cotton, 13% Polyamide, 2% Elastane  | Colors: 6

Bells? No. Whistles? Also no. Anything even close to resembling technical performance? Not a chance. So how did these made-in-Portugal organic cotton socks make our list of the best winter socks for men? Comfort, dammit. Just… comfort.

Their mostly cotton construction won’t help you out in the elements for long, but it’s going to keep your climate-controlled feet feeling like they’re being bear-hugged by a cloud. This is the popcorn-and-a-movie sock that also happens to look great under a wool suit or a smart pair of jeans.

LL bean Merino Wool Ragg Winter Socks

Size range: S-XL  | Material: 77% Merino Wool, 21% Stretch Nylon, 2% Lycra Elastane  | Colors: 6

If there’s one thing you take away from our opus on the best winter socks for men, it’s that they’re all about function. Unlike dress socks or other more precious members of the species, winter socks are all about doing a job. The job of keeping your feet warm and comfortable at all costs.

Yes, even if you happen to be doing nothing but riding the couch with a stem of red in one hand and a charcuterie board in the other (we see you and your aspirational snacking tendencies).

So here comes L.L. Bean with function in spades—heavyweight merino wool blend, super soft construction, almost inappropriately soft. These guys have it all, plus they’re one of the thickest pairs I’ve seen.

Carhartt Heavyweight Wool Socks

Size range: L-XL  | Material: 69% Wool, 28% Nylon, 2% Acrylic, 1% Elastane  | Colors: 3

It should come as no surprise that Carhartt has earned its way into one of our best winter socks for men slots. Not only has the workwear brand been around since 1889, but its semi-recent surge in popularity has been impossible to miss.

For your foot’s consideration, the Heavyweight Wool Blend Boot Sock uses an abrasion-resistant blend of materials and features cushiony ribbed sections throughout. As always, Carhartt does an excellent job of making sure the moisture gets out and the heat stays in. Add in the generous boot-cut length of these socks, and you’ve got yourself the perfect accompaniment to a long day outside, be it for work, pleasure, or a bit of both.

Darn Tough Hiker Merino Socks

Size range: S-XXL  | Material: 66% Merino Wool, 32% Nylon, 2% Lycra Spandex  | Colors: 7

Vermont brand Darn Tough has a deserved reputation as being one of the best hardy-sock manufacturers in the game. Their products are favored by die-hard thru-hikers and fire pit jockeys alike.

This sock is, naturally, made mostly of merino wool. Sweat-wicking: check. Anti-odor: check. But Darn Tough’s uncompromising dedication to quality and seamless-feel construction will also keep your feet warm no matter what snowy escapades you find yourself in. Snowy escapades? Snowy escapades.

Worn T3 Ankle Socks

Size range: XS-XL  | Material: 49% Merino Wool, 47% nylon, 4% elastane  | Colors: 5

Advertisement

Worn’s tried and true T3 Sparrow ankle sock gives you all the benefits of a full-length winter sock, but in a no-show. Among its features are 360-degree arch support, sweat-wicking properties thanks to merino wool, and five colorful patterns for when the shoes come off.

These are marketed as running socks, and they’ll absolutely perform there. But what makes this one of the best no-show socks out there is its versatility. It’s not too heavy, not too light, and can be worn 365 days a year.

Bombas Cotopaxi Merino Wool Socks

Size range: S-XL  | Material: 63% Merino Wool, 35% nylon, 2% Spandex  | Colors: Surprise

These socks feature all the bells and whistles you’ve come to expect from a Bombas product—honeycomb arch support system, seamless toe, airflow venting properties. It goes on. But what makes their hiking calf sock collaboration with Cotopaxi interesting is the process they use to pull these beauties together.

Taking a page out of Cotopaxi’s book, Bombas uses perfectly good, leftover merino wool from its past collections and pulls them together with nylon and spandex. As an interesting kicker, the process creates one-of-a-kind color combinations, meaning no two pairs that you order are likely to be the same. So not only are you getting a complete ass-kicker of a sock, you’re also getting a surprise color.

Chup Fair Socks

Size range: M-L  | Material: Wool Blend  | Colors: 1

There are a lot of unacceptable things in this world. But talking about the best winter socks for men without talking about Fair Isle socks? Unforgivable. So here we are. Fair Isle socks.

We owe so much aspirational winter living to the knitting style that originated on that little island just north of Scotland. The sweaters that compliment a hot toddy oh so well. The pullover that begs for a steaming cup of pumpkin-adjacent coffee. The merino wool Fair Isle socks from Japanese brand Chup that damn well better be peeking out from your jeans around the fire pit.

Showerspass Crosspoint Winter Socks

Size range: S-XXL  | Material: Inner: 81% Coolmax, 16% Polyester, 1% Nylon, 2% Spandex; Outer: 78% Nylon, 15% Polyester, 7% Spandex | Colors: 2

As an all-weather runner myself, I appreciate the value of a warm, sturdy, waterproof (yes, waterproof) pair of socks. While I do my best to avoid puddles and slush, shit happens. Enter: the 100% shitproof three layers that make up the Crosspoint crews from Showers Pass.

Layer one is a standard knit construction that doesn’t lack in the cozy department. Layer two employs a waterproof yet breathable membrane (the crucial layer for running comfort). Layer three is also focused on breathability but also on wicking away sweat and fighting odors. It all comes together in a fully waterproof pair of running socks that will keep your feet warm and dry no matter what self-inflicted punishment you deem necessary to put yourself through.

filson Logger Thermal Winter Socks

Size range: M-XL  | Material: 50% Merino Wool, 30% Wool, 10% Nylon, 9% Acrylic, 1% Spandex | Colors: 2

For the epitome of warmth under extreme conditions, look no further than this super thick and durable pair of thermal socks from legendary outdoor-focused gear brand Filson. Made of 80% wool (50% of which is merino), these warm socks for men were made with fighting the elements in mind—all without so much as hinting at adversity to your feet.

If you’re into outdoor sports, work long days outside in cold conditions, or generally just fancy yourself a comfort connoisseur, the buck stops with these.

Danner Heavyweight Socks

Size range: S-XL  | Material: 79% Merino Wool, 20% Nylon, 1% Lycra  | Colors: 1

Hunter? Cool, you’ll love these. Not a hunter? Still cool. You’ll still love these. As long as you’ll be escorting your body outside during any or all of the fall and winter months, Danner’s heavyweight hunting socks will serve you well.

Almost all of the best winter socks for men are going to have some incorporation of merino wool and offer some incorporation of moisture-wicking, heat-retaining properties. These are no exception. But to sweeten the pot, Danner products are known for being able to carry on after taking a beating. And the knee-high length will help keep at least 50% of your legs sheltered from the elements while you’re snowboarding, lodge-bar hopping, or, sure, even hunting.

Drymax Over The Calf Socks

Size range: S-XL  | Material: 73% Olefin, 10% Polyester, 9% Elastane, 8% Nylon  | Colors: 1

Running when it’s cold out is challenging enough without also having to contend with cold, wet feet and toes. Drymax is a technical pair of socks for technical times. Through science, science, and more science, Drymax’s materials work every bit as hard—if not harder—than merino wool.

The result is a long, comfortable, warm pair of socks designed to get you and your feet to the finish line in one dry piece. Bonus: the price point is very reasonable for the comfort and technical details you’re getting here.

What To Look For In The Best Winter Socks For Men

Material

Winter socks are a specific breed of basic and should be treated as such when comparing materials. Generally speaking, you’re going to want something that locks heat in and pushes moisture out. Though most of the best winter socks for men consist of a well-thought-out blend of materials, the highest percentage should belong to merino wool if you’re looking for moisture control.

Thickness

When we think about the best winter socks for keeping cozy, our knee-jerk reaction is likely something along the lines of “thick, thick, thick.” But even the thinnest socks can be completely warm and waterproof (like Showers Pass’s Crosspoint waterproof crew socks). Before judging a book by its cover, research the individual sock and what it’s made of—thick and warm is nice, but you may be able to achieve the same effect with a thinner sock.

Activity Or Occasion

While they’re going to look great, a handsome pair of Fair Isle socks made mostly of cotton will almost certainly destroy your feet on a ski trip. Conversely, a super-thin pair of thermal running socks isn’t going to be the best choice—aesthetic or otherwise—for cozying up next to the fireplace with a movie. Matching your socks with your outfit and occasion is an art. Consider the materials, function, and overall look of the sock before deciding which pair to go with.

Final Verdict 

Of all the warm socks for men we reviewed, Smartwool’s Hike Classic came out on top for its laundry list of technical features designed to keep your feet warm and dry during outdoor adventures in the winter months. Keep in mind, though, that not all winter socks need to perform. Sometimes all you need is pure comfort.

FAQ

    • As far as warmth is concerned, the undisputed heavyweight champ in the “best winter socks for men” weight class is Smartwool’s Hike Classic. If you’re looking for a pair of socks that’ll keep your feet in tip-top (tip-bottom?) shape without relying on bells or whistles, this is it. And any of my waterproof picks, especially the Crosspoint by Showers Pass, are also going to keep your feet toasty.

      • Merino wool. It’s a throughline in our list of the best winter socks for men for good reason—no other material can rival its ability to regulate temperatures by simultaneously keeping your feet warm and dry.

Anne Hathaway Wore the Pretty Shoe Trend Everyone Will Wear With Jeans This Year

#Anne #Hathaway #Wore #Pretty #Shoe #Trend #Wear #Jeans #Year

New(-ish) fashion icon Anne Hathaway is in Paris for Couture Fashion Week, and she’s been keeping us on our toes with one incredible look after another (see here and here). One of her most casual looks of the week thus far featured a pretty (and somewhat flashy shoe trend): metallic shoes. Hathaway paired silver Western boots with wide-leg jeans and a peacoat, with the boots providing just the fashiony jolt the look needed during Couture Fashion Week.

Metallic shoes have been popping up more and more on the market and in my Instagram feed, and other chic celebrities (like Katie Holmes) have also worn the trend as of late. Not only that, but they were also worn by half of all of the models that walked in Chanel’s couture show this week (a gold cap-toe sock boot, to be exact). I happen to think that metallic shoes are the perfect match for jeans and I highly recommend investing in a pair if you’re a regular denim wearer (or not—they kind of go with everything).

Read on to see the aforementioned metallic boots in action and shop some of the internet’s chicest pairs.

11 Best Leather Wallets From Handmade To Budget-Friendly In 2023

#Leather #Wallets #Handmade #BudgetFriendly

The wallet is the window to the soul—that’s how the saying goes, right? Either way, like any accessory, the wallet you choose to carry every day says a lot about you, and the best leather wallets will say it loud and proud.

A slightly worn, stylishly scuffed, vintage number? Its carrier is an old soul (who may have a penchant for Indiana Jones). A classic, sleek design with maxed-out card pockets on the inside? That’s a man who’s all about utility. 

You may be reading this in a panic now, thinking about the last date you pulled your wallet out on and wondering what judgments were made about you at that moment, but you don’t have to. Even if you’re not clinging to your old middle-school duct tape wallet, chances are you’re still due for an upgrade sooner rather than later.

Key Takeaways

If you’re looking for your next do-it-all and then some wallet, welcome to my master list. While choosing the best leather wallets is not as easy as closing your eyes and pointing at something, it doesn’t have to be a stressful situation. Remember to consider your needs (size, carrying capacity, appearance) and your aesthetic (minimalist, colorful). Leather is a beautiful medium, worth splurging on if you’re looking to find something that will last.

Overall, I’d recommend the Bellroy Hide and Seek, it’s budget-friendly and comes in a variety of colors. But if you’re looking for that special something that will never go out of style, don’t pass on the Luca Faloni Black Bifold (you can thank me later).

Keep reading to learn about my picks for the best leather wallets for men that suit every lifestyle and aesthetic.

Bellroy Hide & Seek Wallet

Bellroy’s Hide & Seek Wallet is the best leather wallet for men just getting in on the fashion game, combining all the features you need in an everyday wallet in a cool, modern style.

Despite its slim, bi-fold design, this wallet has the carrying capacity of over 12 cards and a space for dollar bills. Its “more-than-meets-the-eye” style makes it a great everyday choice for guys on the go, as there’s plenty of space for business cards and receipts to build up, but feels barely there in your pocket. 

One thing we love? You can find this wallet in a variety of colors, from basic black and tans to pops of color like forest green, blue and orange, so you don’t have to worry that upping your accessory game means you have to do away with any pops of originality.

Reviewers have mentioned that with all that card space, more bulk can accumulate in this wallet, so if you’re someone who just needs an ID and a credit card to leave the house, you may want to look elsewhere on this list. 

Mismo Black Travel Wallet

If women have ‘little black dresses’, then the male equivalent has to be a little black wallet. There’s no easier way to spruce up a dinner or meeting outfit than with a little bit of sleek black leather, which is why Mismo’s Black Travel Wallet is the best leather wallet for men on the go who need an elegant storage solution.

You can’t be slowed down throughout your day trying to cram cards and cash in a too-small card sleeve, which is why this full-grain leather wallet uses separate sides for cards and cash, with 6 card slots and a coin purse on one side, and a full bill sleeve on the other. 

An elastic pen loop on the inside and the fact that this zips fully are unique features that make this wallet functionable as well as fashionable. The only thing to keep in mind is that this wallet is a bit larger than the others on this list, so if you’re looking for something you can forget about in your pocket this may not be your best choice. 

Campbell Cole Elm wallet

This wallet has your name all over it. Well, it’ll be on your cards at least. With its high-quality Italian veg-tanned leather and incredibly texturized outer layer, the Elm Compact wallet is definitely the best leather wallet for men who have an eye for the finer things in life.

And this wallet doesn’t just look cool. It has a minimalist bi-fold design so it fits comfortably in a pants or jacket pocket, a large back pocket for dollar bills, and easy access card holders.

Even though this wallet can fit up to 4 cards, this wallet definitely focuses on style more than utility. If you’re looking for a higher carrying capacity or any hidden pockets, somewhere else on this list might be the best leather wallet for you.

Luca Faloni Bifold Cardholder

Luca Faloni’s Bifold Cardholder is proof that luxury doesn’t have to mean opulence. This slim profile wallet is one of the best leather wallets for guys who want to invest in quality craftsmanship.

Luca Faloni wallets are made of genuine Italian leather, so even with its steeper price tag you can rest assured that you’re getting the most bang for your buck, and the three minimalist color options guarantee versatility with anything in your closet. 

This wallet comes fitted with 4 card slots and 4 sleeves that provide room for a few folded dollar bills. The Luca Faloni site recommends using the card slots for a maximum of 2 cards each, so if you’re a person who accumulates a lot of things throughout their day, you may want to look elsewhere on this list. 

Roderer blue Leather Wallet

The good people of Roderer have leather down to, well, a science. Which is why their Award Wallet is second to none in terms of both carrying capacity and style, and the best leather wallet for men require more than just the essentials. While on the outside this leather wallet looks like a slim, unassuming place to store a handful of cards and a few bills, on the inside it’s the Mary Poppins bag of wallets.

The color is second to none, yes the traditional black or brown is great for most but if you want something that stands out that much more (or really like a full monochrome moment), here’s your best bet. Plus, this wallet is handmade, lined, and has a 2-year warranty to rest your nerves.

Troubadour Pivot card case

Troubadour’s Pivot wallet lets you cash in on the trendy look of a leather wallet while committing to a minimalist look—now who wouldn’t want to take that deal? Not ideal for all your cards, this wallet is ideal when you’re out and looking to carry minimal items on you. Even better, use this as a flash business card holder while networking. 

If you’re looking for some of the best leather wallets in the game, you should be looking at Leatherology—it’s literally in their name. Their bifold wallet is the best leather wallet for men who haven’t given any thought to upgrading their wallet until reading this article. Leatherology keeps things simple on this one—no frills, no hidden pockets, just space to store your cash and cards in a few essential colors that will match anything in your wardrobe. 

This wallet also comes equipped with RFID technology, an invaluable quality in our digital age, which helps your credit card information from being picked up by accidental scans. Reviewers have noted that the dollar bill pocket of this wallet isn’t as large as they anticipated, so the cash-carriers reading this list may want to look elsewhere for their perfect fit. 

Swanky Badger Personalized Wallet

If you’re looking for a way to really make your mark (pun intended) on your accessories, look no further than Swanky Badger’s Personalized Wallet. It may just be the best leather wallet for men who want to stand out without breaking the bank.

With Swanky Badger, you can choose between black and brown, and 4 different dynamic monogram options to reflect your bold personality. With their low price tag but high style factor, they’re the perfect option for a groomsmen gift or other special occasion. 

Made of split cow leather, this wallet not only looks sleek, but is durable enough for everyday use. It boasts 8 card slots, a clear ID space, a back pocket for bills, and a zippered pouch for coins. The only thing to keep in mind with this wallet is that you’re limited to the designs Swanky Badger provides—so if you’re in the market for something completely personalized this may not be your best fit. 

Bellroy Slim Sleeve Leather Wallet

There’s nothing worse than the discomfort of a bulky wallet in your pocket as you go about your day. Which is why Bellroy’s Slim Sleeve Leather Wallet is the best leather wallet for men who only need a wallet for an ID and a card or two . This wallet takes the phrase small but mighty to a whole new level, as it can fit up to 8 cards as well as cash in an unassuming, bi-fold design you’ll barely realize you’re carrying. 

Another great spec we love about this wallet are the pull tabs included to easily slide out less frequently used items, like membership or gift cards you typically keep in the back of your wallet but don’t want to leave at home. Even though this slim wallet can fit an impressive amount, it doesn’t have a full size bill sleeve, so if you’re looking for a way to carry more cash we recommend looking elsewhere on this list. 

Givenchy black leather logo billfold

It’s important to treat yourself every now and then, and with Givenchy’s Grained Leather Wallet you can feel good that you’re splurging on something practical. This wallet is made of 100% high quality calfskin, so you can count on its durability and longevity with proper cleaning and care. The pure black goes with everything, while its 4 G silver emblem adds a flash of elegant luxury. 

You can put any skepticism about designer products not having the utility of their cheaper counterparts with this wallet as well. It has a full bill sleeve in the back and 8 card slots, the front two being notched for easier access. As you probably guessed, the only pain point here is the price tag—but if you’re going to spend a couple hundred dollars on a wallet, this is one of the best leather wallets to spend it on.

Fossil Men’s Derrick Wallet

If you’d rather keep more in your wallet than you spend on your wallet, this option is for you. Since the 1980s, Fossil has been providing people with the best leather wallets and other leather goods for quality prices, and their Derrick leather wallet is proof that they’re not stopping anytime soon. This wallet keeps things simple with its bifold design: it has space for 6 cards as well as a full-size back pocket for bills. 

This is the best leather wallet for men who want a wide range of design options for a reasonable price—you can choose from basics like vintage tan and black leather, to funky patterns and bold colors that show off your fun side. Our main suggestion with this wallet is to triple check before you buy—the inside of the wallets and storage capacity can change with the different designs, so depending on what your needs are, certain designs may not be for you.

What to look for When Buying The Best Leather Wallets For Men

Material

While you may look at this category with confusion, there are a lot of subcategories to leather that you should be considering while shopping for a wallet. You have to consider the type and breed of animal the leather is coming from, the layer of hide that’s used, the quality of tanning, etc. The type of leather your wallet is made of will affect the style, longevity, and durability of it. 

Color

When you think of a leather wallet you most likely picture only black or brown, and while basic isn’t bad, it’s not always best. Leather can come in a variety of rich, rugged colors, so it’s best to consider what matches the items already in your wardrobe. If you like a pop of color, maybe consider earth tones like forest green, mustard yellow, navy, or a burnt orange. The best leather wallets will not just just carry your essentials, bit reflect a bit of your personal style.

Capacity

While style is important, the true function of a wallet isn’t to look cool, it’s to carry things. So when you’re shopping for a wallet, always consider what you’re going to need to have with you every day. For example, the best leather wallets for men on the go may be simple leather money clips to hold their cash, while a tri-fold wallet is a better option for holding cards, cash, and anything else you may accumulate throughout the day.

Final Verdict 

Buying the best leather wallets is no easy feat, there is no way you can just waltz into any store (or domain) and magically find what you need. Make sure when buying a leather wallet, there are several factors you should be considering.

If you’re looking for something to last, the first thing should be the quality of the leather. Ideally, you’ll spend the extra bit of cash to get something made of full-grain leather, like my favorite, the Award wallet from Roderer. Remember that real leather can have slight imperfections or patterns that show up, making it all the more unique. 

The next option should be to consider what your needs are. Do you need something slim? Something with a lot of carrying capacity? Do you carry a lot of cash and need some kind of snap closure?

Hopefully, you’ve already found your next leather wallet from the list above, if you’re still searching I know that this was a great place to start. Happy hunting!

FAQ

    • Like the saying goes–if you want something done right, do it yourself. The best way to clean a leather wallet is by hand, rather than machine. With a dry paper towel, first wipe off any surface dust on the wallet. Then, apply leather cleaner in a circular motion with a soft cloth, and finish off by using a lightly damp cloth to remove any excess cleaner.

      Advertisement
      • When it comes to a leather wallet, you want to be sure you’re investing in long-term quality. In terms of style and durability, full grain leather typically makes the best leather wallets. Full grain refers to the outermost part of the animal hide, and is typically the strongest part of the hide.

        • The most important factor in the longevity of a wallet is how you care for it. The best leather wallets, ones that are made of full-grain or any other high quality leather, can last up to 10 years with proper care.

Anne Hathaway Dazzles in Sequined Leopard-Print Leggings and a Matching Minidress

#Anne #Hathaway #Dazzles #Sequined #LeopardPrint #Leggings #Matching #Minidress

On Jan. 25, Anne Hathaway wore head-to-toe sequins to the Valentino show at Paris Haute Couture Week, paying tribute to the designer in a leopard-print minidress and matching leggings. Hathaway’s husband, Adam Shulman, accompanied the “Armageddon Time” actor down the red carpet in a black-and-white ensemble layered underneath a gray herringbone trench coat.

Sparkles have been a standout trend on and off the runway this season, but Hathaway’s look was hard to miss. The minidress featured a square neckline and spaghetti straps, which were lined with two rows of silver and gold sequins. The shimmering discs appeared again on the bodice and skirt of the dress. The embellishments — composed of black, gold, silver, and brown sequins — resembled leopard spots.

The most striking part of her outfit was the coordinated pair of sequined leggings. From the hem of the dress to the curve of her heels, the intricate design created the illusion that Hathaway’s legs were painted with spots. She styled the feline-inspired look with a leopard-print clutch and matching pointed-toe pumps. On her hands, she wore silver and gold rings that complemented her drop earrings.

Last week, Hathaway attended the premiere of her new thriller “Eileen” at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. Ahead of the showing, she posed in a black corset-style puffer jacket and paired the functional winter outerwear with Wolford tights and platform boots. Earlier that day, Hathaway wore the same boots with tights, a black turtleneck tank top, and a flannel Celine shacket.

Alternating between our favorite ’00s trends (the newsboy cap) and stunning sheer outfits, her style game has been impressive this season. We can’t wait to see what else the “Devil Wears Prada” star has in store for Paris Fashion Week.

Admire Hathaway’s lustrous ensemble from all angles ahead.
