The fact that Canadians are the first to know about the next big winter trends became very clear to me when I hopped on a Zoom call with Nitsan Raiter and we compared the current state of the weather. She was recovering from a day spent navigating a November snowstorm while I was just starting to bundle up and embrace what I consider to be cold: the low 50s. Nitsan has spent a lifetime dressing for cold weather and she’s found a way to make it work, telling me that “it’s all about thinking outside the box on how to stay warm during a really cold season. All you need is a good coat, a good hat, and you’re good.”
At the beginning of the month, Raiter headed to Aspen to spend a long weekend in the snow before it hit really hard. While there she tested out her winter wardrobe which showcased her personal style which is “a combination of classic meets trendy. I have my go-to’s but then I love mixing in more trendy elements based on the season.” Many of the trends she wore and saw around town were too good not to share. Below, she tells me the five winter trends that are guaranteed to take over in 2023.
