Our work with collaborators is rooted in a desire to create styling content and gather fit information that differ from and complement our product imagery, and to partner with folks both within and outside of our current customer demographic. For all of our collections, we choose partners carefully and intentionally so that, hopefully, you see someone who resonates with you. Those partners spend time styling and photographing items in various ways, share perspective on fit and sizing, and give insight on how items wear in their unique lifestyles and climates.
For our Cold Weather Collection launch this past fall, we partnered with some brilliant collaborators to show you how these new Cold Weather garments fit on a variety of body types and look in a plethora of personal styles. These folks already believe in our product but were willing to try a totally new fabric and some new styles with us. Our shared values of transparency, inclusivity, and adaptability when it comes to clothes shine with every styled look and caption, and we hope these partnerships bring you as much joy and inspiration as they have to us.

While Caroline’s looks span a wide range from going out to staying in, we particularly love her approach to our Cold Weather pieces as loungewear. The warmth of our wool—paired with luxurious silk bottoms, thick socks, and loose, cozy knits—will reach out and hug you with Caroline’s comfort-seeking styling.
Her measurements are 32" bust, 25" waist, 35" hip, and 5'5" height.
"Elizabeth Suzann’s clothes are stunning, but the magic of ES isn’t just the clothes; it’s the intention and care behind them. When I wear an ES garment, I feel something every time—like a deep sense of appreciation for a garment that feels so luxurious on my skin and for the way it was made, with respect for planet and people.
The moment I saw the Reece Dress, I knew I’d be styling it ‘stick of butter’ style with vintage tall boots and a scarf to add contrast near my face. (That’s my trick for wearing head-to-toe beige without looking washed out: add contrast near the face with a scarf or a turtleneck layered underneath.) A few more styling ideas? Pair it with snakeskin knee boots or try one of the coordinating belts and wear it with a cinched waist.
My favorite thing about the Clyde Vest is that it’s made with dropped armholes. That means you can fit oversized, drapey sweaters underneath without that uncomfortable fabric-bunching-in-your-armpit thing. (Same goes for the Clyde Trench too!) Wear it over a cozy sweater on chilly days or layer it underneath an overcoat when the temperature plummets. Personally, I love wearing it as a house coat too. That’s the beauty of Elizabeth Suzann pieces—they are made to be lived in. They blend style, comfort, and durability effortlessly, allowing them to serve as both at-home clothes and going-out clothes.”

We love how Lydia has highlighted the versatility of the Clyde Trench in Charcoal Heavyweight Wool by offering two different winter looks—one monochromatic and tonal, and the other bright and colorblocked. The draped, uncinched styling of the Trench is lengthening and enveloping, just like a good winter layer should be.
Their measurements are 41.5" bust, 38.5" waist, 55" hip, and 5'2.5" height.
“Wooly and warm, all tucked up in the Charcoal Heavyweight Climate Beneficial Wool Clyde Trench. This Elizabeth Suzann coat has been keeping me snug all season long! If you are curious about ES’s woolen process, I highly recommend reading up on the journey to the Cold Weather Collection on their blog. For textile nerds like me, it was a super interesting delve into domestic apparel development.”

There is no end to the creative styling ideas of Erica Kim. One of our favorite looks from Erica for this collaboration is the Asawa-belted Sleeveless Parabola Dress in Fawn. It was really important to us that customers be able to visualize the Sleeveless Parabola, being a new style, on a smaller frame, and she totally nailed it.
Her measurements are 32" bust, 27" waist, 38" hip, and 5'4" height.
“I’ve had so much fun trying out several different pieces from this collection. So far, my favorite has been the Andy Trouser. I’ve been looking a long time for wool pants with elegant front pleats, made in the softest fabric. After a long day at work I found that the elastic waistband was pretty comfortable, and the fabric held its shape well. I really love the Charcoal; the flecks of white add dimension, and paired with the Reece pullover, I’m basically in work-appropriate pjs.
And this Cocoon Coat is pure drama. The shape, the silk lining—everything about this coat is special. If I lived in a more temperate climate, I would wear this all winter long with a Clyde Jacket or sweater underneath. It is one of those pieces that can transform your mood and space instantly. I am forever in love with ‘50- to '60s-era film and fashion photography. This coat transports me to NYC in the ‘60s. I love that garments can have this magical effect on us.”

Jacquelin took a few of our Cold Weather styles with her to New Orleans over the holidays and provided lots of great insight on how the pieces perform while traveling and in fluctuating climates. While she played with contrasting colors and a fun belt, the real treasure of her styling is her consciousness of layering.
Her measurements are 34" bust, 27" waist, 43" hip, and 5'4" height.
“When Elizabeth Suzann approached me about a Cold Weather Collection collaboration, saying yes was an easy choice. I chose the Florence Pants because of their familiar wide-leg silhouette. The combination of their shape and the warm, luxurious wool makes them feel like old friends. I chose them in the heathered Charcoal gray because I was craving some depth of color in my cold weather closet, and because having them in the darker color way means I can get tons of wear out of them over the course of the season before they need to be cleaned.
I wore these pants three times on our vacation to New Orleans. There was enough of a chill in the air to pair the pants with a light cashmere sweater and D'orsay Oxfords. The soft camel tone of the sweater complemented the dark neutral of the pants, with just enough subtlety to allow the pants to be the focal point of the outfit. I added a deep red belt bag for some texture and visual interest (as well as clear functionality) and pulled my hair up in my trusty pink, cream, and cognac satin scarf. As the day cooled, I added a rust-colored top coat for some tonal and physical warmth.”
