While blizzard conditions aren’t exactly fashion friendly, there’s no need to go total polar bear with your look (unless that’s the statement you’re trying to make).
Here are a few items that can keep you warm and still feel stylish.
I don’t own an 800 fill power down coat so I rely on layers to provide the same level of protection. I bought a thin, down jacket at a sample sale last fall thinking it would be my go-to in 40Β°-ish temp. When I realized it would wear well underneath many of my other coats, I thought JACKPOT! I get to keep wearing my less warm, wool jackets even when the weather is crazy cold.
This is my signature winter weather apparel — low in cost, high in value, and super easy to wear. My legs are supremely grateful for the added layer, and I love the look these dancer-drawn accessories provide.
Thigh High Socks
This is my secret weapon when leg warmers aren’t working with my outfit. Since I never liked the way tights felt worn underneath pants, these guys do the trick. I pull them all the way up, and then put my pants on top.
For a face-mask effect, but in a cute, colorful pattern.
Knee-high boots aren’t so much in my repertoire these days, but thankfully I held onto these from a few years back that I can turn to on days like today. Also, GL is feeling pretty good wearing these, and I feel pretty good knowing her little legs are getting that extra coverage.
