The 3 possible ways to dress for winter

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

We’ve officially moved past the point of winter where we’re smugly snuggling up in sweaters, drinking hot cocoa/something stronger at outdoor markets, and happily dreaming of sledging at the first snow. No, this is now Serious Cold, complete with windchill, grey sludgy mess, and permanently numb fingers.

Here are the three possible ways to handle it, and a few styling suggestions to get you to spring.

Option One: Styling it out

No amount of snow is going to keep you from looking your damn finest every day. Cinderella will go to the club when it’s -4F excluding windchill, and she will be wearing party shoes. In order to maintain this, you have a 5* rating on Uber, an ability to walk in stilettos that is so impressive it could be your talent in a beauty pageant (as long as it’s only from your door to your ride), and you have trained your body to resist hypothermia while in line at midnight (with the aid of alcohol).

Basically, you put the ‘win’ in winter.

Baby I’m Ready Faux Fur Cropped Jacket

It’s a coat, so your mom can stop commenting on your Insta, but it’s also Fashion, so hellooo to all your future new followers. Officially maintaining your best dressed status.

Perfect Pitch Rhinestone Stiletto Boots

Don’t freeze your toes off, cover them in glitter instead. The Perfect Pitch Rhinestone Stiletto Boots have that high heel you can’t quit, and pointed – covered – toes to keep your look on, well, point, plus sparkling rhinestones all over to get you in the party mood, regardless of the forecast.

Option Two: Bundled up

The second winter hits, you’re happy to submerge yourself under All Of The Layers.

You own enough pairs of gloves to keep two octopuses’ tentacles toasty, enough scarves that if you were to tie them all together, they would probably have helped Rapunzel escape her tower without risking split ends, and enough cozy socks to cover the feet of 101 dalmatians and their parents. You’ve fully embraced hat hair as a Look, and you’re pretty sure wearing all these layers around is doing wonders for your bone density.

Check It Out Faux Fur Hooded Coat

If a comforter and a coat conceived a child, it would be this comforter coat. It has four pockets to squirrel away all your accessories (gloves, hand warmers, tissues, antibacterial hand juice), a longline fit so even your knees are warm, a massive detachable hood in faux fur, and it’s quilted just like the beloved comforter you had to leave in bed this morning. Your BFF, at least from November to March.

Polar Fleece Leggings

Polar conditions mean switching out your regular leggings for something tougher, like this high-waisted fleece-lined pair. What windchill?

Option Three: Full-on hibernation

You keep exposure to the outside world to a minimum.

You’re BFFs with the delivery guy (what’s up, Jason?), you’ve caught up on all your Netflix must-watches (you’re basically an expert on the British Royals, thanks to The Crown), and you’ve become an expert at nail art/elaborate crochet/making pottery/some other indoor craftsy thing. You can’t remember the last time you wore an outfit that didn’t involve sweatpants, and you will not apologize for it.

Since you’re spending so much time in your loungewear, give it a lux makeover. These joggers are appropriately comfy, thanks to the stretchy waist, loose-ish fit, and cuffed legs, and the velvet outer gives Jason the impression that they’re just a bit fancier than your jersey alternatives.

Good Idea Faux Fur Knitted Sweater

Think of it as your reintroduction to fashion. It’s still level 11 cozy, but it’s also a step up in cuteness from that one oversized hoodie you’ve been huddled up in since December. OK, many steps up. You can do this.

However you’re getting through it, do it your way.
