WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

What to Wear

It’s always difficult figuring out what to wear on a cold day. Sure, you want to look presentable, but your health insurance doesn’t cover hypothermia. Spring semester or rather “Siberia semester” is not usually the most fashionable season, especially not with the impending gloom and doom of a polar vortex.

For this Fashionista, “cold weather” may be a bit of an understatement. Imagine my amazement when I saw a flash of white among the swarm of dark gray and black jackets that crowded the streets. I practically chased her down thinking she was Olivia Pope! Who else could pull off such a daring look so effortlessly? While I didn’t get the autograph I was expecting, I was excited to meet this Fashionista.

Although it was snowing with a vengeance, that didn’t seem to faze this Fashionista. The white of her coat easily put the snow on the ground to shame. It certainly was the statement piece of this look. The riding boots, neck scarf and leather gloves were a nice complement as well. I absolutely love how she added fun to the outfit with her headscarf and bright bag. Who said you couldn’t be cold and cute?

Sure, it may be convenient to stick to darker colors in the wintertime (and then there’s that whole white after labor day thing), but the colors are what added excitement to this look. If you’re scared of the color-blocking trend, adding just one element of color to a monochromatic look is always a safe yet chic way to go.

One Simple Change: Just in case you have a meeting with the Queen of England, you could always dress up this look by letting your hair down and adding a pretty.
