How to Stay Warm and Stylish at the Same Time!

Not sure if you have noticed, but it’s freezing outside!  That’s an understatement if you are currently living in the NorthEast as I am.   It’s currently 10F degrees in Connecticut and the weather outlook is not getting warmer anytime soon.  How does a fashionista stay warm and stylish at the same time in arctic conditions?  It’s a real difficult balance when all you want to do is cuddle up under blankets with your warmest sweater and sweatpants.  Luckily, this Winter’s trends are right on point to keeping us warm and looking chic at the same time.  So don’t stress about how cold it is outside, a fashionista always manages to look her best in any weather.

Here are some tips on how to take on the frigid temperatures in stylish ways:

Wear Cashmere

Yes, cashmere is your friend.  It’s time to wear those cashmere sweaters that keep you extremely warm.  This time of year, it’s best to wear them with pants.  Choose a cashmere turtleneck for extra warmth and look for features like a cutout to add an element of interest.

Add Layers

Layer your clothes.  It’s that simple.  Wearing layers will keep you warm and allow you to wear your thinner garments throughout winter.

  • wear long-sleeved teeshirts under your sweaters
  • pair a blazer over your blouses and sweaters  (add a coat and your super warm)
  • try thick tights under skirts and knee-high boots
  • pair long cardigans over flannel shirts
  • add scarves to everything


Add a Fun Hat

It’s a known fact that hats keep our heads warm.  Not only is it smart to keep our heads warm, but it’s also fun to wear a playful hat.  With so many great options in knit hats, it’s hard to only have one!

Try a faux-fur jacket

There is no better excuse for looking fashionable and warm than to wear a faux-fur jacket.   This on-point trend will keep you cozy this winter without sacrificing your style.

Buy a pair of weatherproof boots

The must have winter item for every fashionista is a weatherproof boot.   They should be a staple in every woman’s closet.  Snow, sleet and salt-covered walkways can ruin our good boots (also many do not keep our feet warm and dry).  Invest in a pair with water-resistant and stain-resistant technology.  I highly recommend the brand, Aquatalia.   This brand mixes the needed winter functionality with a great deal of style (these boots are so stylish you won’t believe they are a weatherproof).
