Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful!

So I can't imagine that anyone has been particularly fashionable in this absolutely gross weather we've been enduring recently but if you're looking for what to wear that will make you look more like a snow bunny than an eskimo, read on.

As far as shoes are concerned, don't go running around in your Uggs. They won't dry ever and it will be a total disaster. Hopefully you took my advice from the last post and purchased duck boots, but if not look for lined rain boots, they will be much warmer than your usual puddle-jumpers. To keep your toes cozy wear a pair of wool socks, Smartwool is a great brand and is available at sporting retailers as well as stores like Nordstrom.
These are called latte stripeuccino! Makes you want to put them on and run to Starbucks!

If it is super freezing, wear something under your jeans and layer up on top. In the rare chance that the weather is above 30 degrees, I personally enjoy the legging and oversized sweater look. It just allows me to pretend I'm on some chic ski slope instead of walking to class and trying not to slip and fall. Coordinating gloves and scarf is obviously a must (unless you're wearing a turtleneck sweater) and as mentioned before, please wear a hat. Your body will thank you for it!

If in some rare chance you have never purchased an intense winter coat, it is your lucky month since the recession has brought about sales like never before. Go for something longer that is preferably lined or filled with down. Just invest the extra dollars you're getting from your tax return in a North Face, unless you plan on moving to the Caribbean soon.

Best Wishes in the Snow!
