WHAT TO WEAR: Cold Weather

This winter has been brutally cold to say the least. From feet of snow being dumped all over the Northeast to bone-chilling winds, this winter has been leaving Fashionistas and Fashionistos all over college campuses not wanting to leave the comfort of their dorms—and with the amount of snow days that colleges have been utilizing, many of us haven’t had to. But there comes a point when you have to bundle up and brace the weather, and this week’s Fashionista is here to show us how to do so in style.

Her outfit starts out with leggings, a staple of any comfortable outfit, but she spruces them up with plenty of extra layers and accessories for the winter weather. She wore a flannel button-up shirt and a long sweater over it for added warmth. The adorable lion design on the front and plaid pattern of the flannel kept the classic combination from looking boring.

As far as keeping this look cold weather-appropriate, this Fashionista wore a green field coat over her ensemble that was the perfect weight and length to keep her entire body warm even though she was just wearing leggings on as pants. If you’re looking for added warmth, try a thicker legging, like lululemon yoga pants, that are made of a heavier fabric rather than just a lightweight cotton and spandex blend. This Fashionista wore Sorel snow boots, the perfectly stylish boot for braving the elements, which are also a great alternative to the sought-after L.L.Bean Boots that are practically unavailable until summertime!

One Simple Change: To make this outfit more appropriate for warmer weather, like fall or spring, swap out the snow boots for a more lightweight footwear option. Riding boots would make this outfit perfect for fall. But for the spring season, which is (hopefully) fast approaching, this outfit would be perfect sans coat and hat, and with a pair of Sperry Top-Siders on your feet to keep the ensemble looking casual and preppy.
