Fogwear Laid Bare

Give fleece a rest and break out better looking gear for a month of temperature swings. 

While the rest of the country is slathering on the Coppertone this month, we’re stoically retying our scarves. But, good news: Fogwear doesn’t have to be bulky. From silky leggings to lightweight linen knits, it’s possible to weather the unseasonable chill in style. A multi-neighborhood layering cheat sheet.
