This New Zealand chain might leave you longing for another round of frost. Each activewear item stocked here is woven from pure merino wool to give it silklike softness and all-temperature breathability. Bright, basic layering pieces include the Nature tank for women ($50) and the SS Anatomica Crewe T-shirt for men ($60). You'll also find sport-specific styles: A new line of bike apparel introduces the SS Circuit full-zip men's jersey ($140), which features back pockets and an antislip strip at the hem, and the brand's signature pair of bike shorts (candence short $160, circuit bib $200), a collaboration with cycling company Cytek. 102 Wooster St between Prince and Spring Sts (646-861-2523, icebreaker.com). Mention "Merino" at checkout to receive 15 percent off through May 1.

This Canadian import refuses to compromise street-style vanity for cold-weather practicality. It's deservedly famous for its figure-flattering outerwear, which incorporates smart details that help you look polished and pulled together—not like you walked out the door wearing a sleeping bag. The Liz puffy coat ($685) boasts a luxe rabbit-fur lined hood, while the dainty bow detailing on the Jamie wool coat ($695) embodies Mackage's dresslike tailoring. Leather jackets feature prominently in the company's first spring ready-to-wear collection, from the studded-shoulder Oceana jacket for women ($750) to the zip-neck, patch-pocketed Kenji bomber jacket for men ($790). 123 Mercer St between Prince and Spring Sts (212-925-1455, mackage.com)
