WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

What to Wear

The snowpocalpse has finally passed and students have emerged from their unplanned but well deserved slumbers. Here is Eastern North Carolina we all know it could be a new season each day of the week. With the sporadic weather changes it wasn’t hard to predict the polar vortex, but I’m pretty sure everyone didn’t prepare for the intensity of the storm. Before inches of snow fell, the classes were cut short in preparation for the six inches of snow and students had to brave the plummeting temperatures to reach their early morning classes.

This Fashionisto was ahead of the winter fashion storm curb when classes began amidst this sudden temperature drop. Bundled up and ready for the storm, you would be surprised that this Fashionisto was raised by the beach.

Dawning the most important winter essential, this Fashionisto strutted the winter coat of winter coats. With a canvas cargo exterior the body of the coat has the appearance of simple piece of outwear. Combined with the layered interior and the fur trim on the hood, this piece could probably keep a snow-caped mountain climber warm. Adding the necessary winter accessory gloves and a thick pair of denim jeans the look is almost complete.

To finish off this Eskimo-esq outfit, this Fashionisto tied it up with leather moccasins laced with leather strings. The only thing missing from this perfect pre-storm ensemble is a over-the-top ski mask to finish it off. Luckily, the accessory was not a necessity.

One Simple Change: If classes are canceled for you the next day, you can layer your weekend wear under your outfit while adding another warming layer with this old-school unisex one-piece from American Apparel.
