Every season has its limitations when it comes to style. Extreme temperatures rarely produce inspiration, often leading Fashionistas and Fashionistos to believe that looking good under such conditions is impossible. Luckily, the blasting cold is easier to dress for than blistering heat; all it takes is a collection of winter basics.

This week’s Fashionista seems to know her way around staying classy when it’s cold. She shows that the key to dressing for arctic temperatures lies in the materials of the clothing. This Fashionista wears a puffy jacket that offers great insulation to keep her toasty. She also sports a knit beanie that prevents her head from being affected by sharp, icy winds. A fluffy scarf and duck boots complete her warm and cozy look.

Clearly, it is very possible to dress for a polar vortex without sacrificing style. This Fashionista proves it with her practical but very presentable outfit.
