I’m not quite sure when it happened, but the East Coast and many other parts of the country have turned into an Arctic wasteland. If you live in LA where it’s been 80 degrees out recently, don’t talk to me.
Since most of us can’t roll out the door in a snowsuit every day, here are a couple of looks to prove that you can be warm(ish) and still look cute.
I am pretty much obsessed with this Rebecca Taylor coat. Other than the obvious visual impact, this coat has two key ingredients in the trying to keep warm arena: it has a high wool content, and it’s long. Waist length coats might look cute, but when the thermometer is reading 6 degrees (like this morning), that extra length makes a HUGE difference.
This is a great look to wear with a dress or skirt when you need to get a little dressed up. The boots prove that you can have warm footwear that doesn’t look clunky, and the tights are actually fleece lined!
For a more casual look, a parka is great — but stick with something that doesn’t make you lose your shape. This one will be flattering, thanks to the tie nipping in the waist. And the boots from The North Face will look really cute with skinny jeans tucked in.
If all else fails, crawl under the covers and refuse to come out until it hits at least 50 degrees. Which is exactly what I wanted to do this morning ;)
