Nothing says winter quite like a cozy, chunky sweater. When I’m trying to beat the chill and still maintain a sense of style, it’s crucial to pick great layering pieces.

As a runner-up at the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund awards this past fall, Ryan Roche is, at the moment, one of the most talked-about designers in New York City. “The isolation allows me to just be really focused on what I’m doing,” says Roche, whose design studio is housed in a converted barn. “My daughter’s friend who’s 13 is one of my biggest fans,” Roche says, “and my grandmother who’s 88 is one of my biggest fans.” (So, too, are a number of celebrities known for their eccentrically feminine style, including Maggie Gyllenhaal and Jemima Kirke.)
