How to Stay Warm AND Stylish
Okay, so everyone’s making fun of Atlanta for our little snow day slip-up. But you know what? It was freezing, and people everywhere were piling on the coats, scarves and hats in an attempt to stay a little toasty. Now that we’re finally used to this weather, though, are you hoping to maintain your fashion cred while still bundling up? It’s not as hard as you’d think.
Wait! Don’t close this article! I swear, not all jeggings look fake and ridiculous – Check out H&M for some super authentic ones. However, my reasoning isn’t purely aesthetic. It’s easy to pull stretchy jeans over black leggings, so you have an extra layer of warmth.
Find the perfect quirky sweater.
If you’re the type that loves a classic knit sweater, then rock it and don’t look back. But I’m fonder of a fun Adventure Time sweater or one with a silly word or phrase. Don’t lose your personality under all those layers! Stores like TopShop are loaded with the kind of sweaters that dreams are made of.
Buy a trendy coat.
Take a break from your typical pea coat. Right now I’m loving plush army green coats, especially ones with details like leather sleeves or a fur hood. Or, if you’ve got a more classic style, try a trench coat or even a cape. The idea is to broaden your jacket horizons – you can do it!
Tuck into some boots.
Slip your feet into some fuzzy socks, pull them up over your jeans, and enjoy the ease of putting on boots. Seriously, any kind works: riding, combat, sexy booties. Even some edgy sneaker wedges will keep you snug – they’re usually extra padded for extra attitude, and designers like Jeffrey Campbell have some that go beyond punk.
…and don’t forget accessories!
Yeah, yeah, we’ve all seen about a thousand beanies and infinity scarves. These days, though, retailers are upping the basics with funky studs and hip patterns. And who couldn’t use an awesome pair of gloves with text-ready finger pads? Finally, don’t forget jewelry. A bright pair of earrings will remind you that, yes, spring will come!
