WHAT TO WEAR: Shopping

What to Wear

Mother Nature has taken over again. As soon as the snow and ice cleared, the clouds opened up and spat out another round. The current weather situation is treacherous. It is almost impossible to walk outside without falling, school is being cancelled for the first time in ten years, and the end is nowhere in sight. Though most of us prefer to stay in and catch up on the all the latest Fashion Week shows, a few brave souls must venture out into the cold, cold abyss of white winter slush. This Fashionista is one of those brave souls, and is here to show you how to beat Mother Nature in style.

When shopping in cold weather, it is important to remember that you will be exposed to many different temperatures constantly. This Fashionista has taken this into consideration, and solved the problem by layering. For her bottom layer, she chose a lightweight cotton shirt. On top of that, she layered a heavier cardigan for a little more warmth. For her outer layer, she wore a black peacoat to keep with her overall neutral color scheme and to keep her warm for when she’s walking from store to store. This Fashionista stuck with classic jeans for her bottom layer to keep the look simple. Knee-high boots are the perfect complement to this look, as they are flattering on everyone and keep you warm and dry, no matter how deep the snow may be.

Figuring out what to wear when shopping can be difficult, but adding the element of weather in makes the task almost impossible. But as this Fashionista has demonstrated, looking cute while shopping can be done! The most important thing to remember is to keep it simple; even when it is freezing outside, you will still be on your feet for long periods of time, and constantly changing in and out of clothing. By wearing an easy and comfortable outfit, you can make your shopping experience much more enjoyable— as if it’s not already!

One Simple Change: Spending hours at the mall will inevitably lead to dinner with friends. To make this outfit a bit more fancy, try substituting jeans with a cute, flirty skirt.
