WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

Philadelphia’s winter this year has been underwhelming to say the least. Juno barely happened, and when New York and Boston got snow days, we just got rain. Although we haven’t been hit with heavy snow just yet, there is definitely an art to dressing for the cold weather. This Fashionista knew just how to dress for Philadelphia’s (mildly) cold winter.

To start off her outfit, this Fashionista wore her pair of J Brand ankle, midrise skinny jeans in the blue mercy wash. The inky, dark wash looked black in the shade, and the dark color was perfect for the winter months. Ripped holes in the knees added an unexpected twist to your pair of typical winter jeans, and the raw hems of her jeans certainly added a bit of edge while appearing to elongate her legs by showing a bit of ankle.

On top, this Fashionista knew to pile on the layers to stay warm in the cold weather. A gray-and-black striped, long sleeve shirt acted as her base layer, and she wore a puffer vest and an oversized scarf on top to keep warm. The vest’s goose down fill surely kept this Fashionista warm without adding too much bulk to her look.

One Simple Change: Are you headed to the library? Stiff, tight denim may not be the most comfortable option for that dreaded all-nighter. Instead, try wearing your favorite pair of sweatpants. These T by Alexander Wang neoprene sweatpants or these shredded terry NSF sweatpants are perfect for staying fashionable, comfortable and warm.
