And if she's warm and looks cute, even better. A few fail-safe options: Lole's wool-and-acrylic Cuddle Sweater ($100; lolewomen.com; see item 1 in photo), which every woman in the office gave a thumbs-up. Or down booties like the North Face's fuzz-lined NSE Tent Mule Furs ($45; thenorthface.com). Another safe bet is Cloudveil's Run Don't Walk Pants ($125; cloudveil.com)they have a flattering, yoga-pant fit but, because they're made with a stretchy Polartec material, are much, much toastier. And if you're already thinking ahead to your next camping trip, go all in with Big Agnes's Dream Island ($190; bigagnes.com), a 15-degree sleeping bag for two.
