How to Look Fab When It’s Freezing Cold-#Winter Chic…… The Look 34

Ever since the New Year, it’s been absolutely freezing in NYC!!! With temperatures as low as 10 degrees and major snow on the ground , it doesn’t leave much inspiration for even leaving the house unless absolutely necessary, but still….the show (& life & work) must go on!

Currently as we are heading into the second week of the year, it’s “warming up” to the 30’s and 40’s which is much more manageable….but still….for someone who spent so many years in sunny California, it takes a bit of adjusting to get used to getting dressed on these super cold days.

Here is my un-official guide to looking stylish in the lower digits, all in styles from the splurge-worthy to the steal 🙂

THE COAT

I’ve never been a big fan of puffy coats and have always steered towards faux furs in fun, bright colors…..but when the temps really drop you’ll want to wrap yourself up in anything that resembles your warmest duvet comforter….here’s some chic alternatives in different price points:

 

1.Bordeaux down puffer/ SAM $575   2.Gold puffer/ Add Down   3. Pink cold night puffer/ Lovers & Friends $178    4.Red  X Revolve Belted Puffer Lovers & Friends $101  5.Lilac puffer bomber/ Lioness $100     6.Leopard Print Puffer/ ASOS $34 on sale!

 

THE SWEATER

You can never go wrong with a great sweater and this season there are so many cute ones to choose from….and many of them are also on sale….a win/ win!

 

1.Fuchsia boss woman top/ Lovers & Friends $168   2. Grey ruffle sweater/ English Factory $63 on sale!     3.Pink cold shoulder sweater/ Glamorous $60   4.Blue Tie Sleeve sweater / JOA $52    5.Lilac sweater/ ASOS $45 on sale!

 

THE BOOTS

I must admit that I have never purchased snow boots before, unless you count the ones I had when I was about 9 years old…..Anyway, it didn’t snow much last year and that was our first winter since moving to the east coast. But this year I do see the importance of having a great pair of boots to beat the elements plus you can still look chic doing it….there’s nothing like ruining your fave pair of boots and getting your feet wet in the slushy street corners of NYC! Not fun!

Happy Winter!
