Christmas might be over, but that doesn’t mean winter is. And while it’s the thought that counts for the gifts family members got you, there’s nothing wrong with treating yourself to something you’ll actually want to wear. Whether you’re into outdoor recreation or just want to look stylish when you’re catching up with friends, here are three local winter collections to keep you warm when January rolls around.

Ruckus Apparel

Denver-based Ruckus Apparel presents us with its Winter 16 Collection: “Prayer for Reconciliation,” a collection about building a community for people who may have never belonged to anything in their lives. Destroyed sweaters, knit turtlenecks, long rain coats, bomber jackets, beanies and graphic hoodies are among the options to choose from. To debut the Winter collection and drive its message forward, Ruckus teamed up with Blurred Pictures to make Prayer for Reconciliation, a fashion film that brings to life the idea of building community where everyone can find refuge and hope.

Price Range: $28-$180

Location: Available online and at Bellwether on East Colfax.
