How To Stay Stylish In The Cold

With the messy snowstorms and the record low wind chills across the country—some down to negative 60 degrees (Sorry Mid-Westerner friends…I can’t even imagine!!), it’s nearly impossible to stay warm and still look cute.

Trust me, it’s not totally impossible.

Function is of course the key when it comes to these conditions, so it’s time to break out those down jackets and snow boots whether you like it or not. Unless you’re Ms. Wintour and getting shuttled in a private car service this winter, you’re going to have those days were you will actually need these things. It took me years of resisting to break down and actually buy them, even after going to a university we dubbed “Siberia-cuse.” I have to say this jacket and these snow boots were the best wardrobe investments I may have ever made. Best of all, if you invest in them, they will last you for years and save you money from buying new ones every year.

These pieces may not get me featured on The Sartorialist, but I will be able to pridefully walk down the street both warm and not looking like I’m the Michelin Man or on the ski slopes. Plus, you can always jazz up classic pieces like these with a trendy chunky scarf (the more over-sized the better this season!) and a furry hat.

Stay warm and stylish, wherever you are.
