If you live somewhere in North America, then you’ve felt it! The teeth-chattering cold that seeps into your bones and leaves you longing for your cozy bed. And when even Atlanta feels like the Arctic, how do you stay warm? Here are a few tips to make sure that you’re ready to withstand winter.
Part Ways with Denim: Even though jeans are a year-long wardrobe staple, you better keep them in your closet for now! They won’t block out the cold –if anything, the fabric only absorbs it. So opt for cotton jeggings instead, or a great pair of lined wool pants.
Layer-Up, Buttercup!: Let’s face it, flimsy fabrics just won’t cut it in sub-zero temps. You need to layer your clothing like a well-built cake. Slip on tights underneath your bottoms, and have at least 3 items on the top (camisole, long sleeve shirt, sweater/cardigan). Lucky for us, layering is in style so have fun with it! Mix patterns and prints, and combine colours.
Choose the Right Shoes: Stilettos may be stylish, but you’ll slip on icy sidewalks. Instead, lace up a pair of insulated boots that will also keep your toes nice and toasty.
Add on some Accessories: Keep it all under wraps with scarves, hats, and mitts that are lined, and put away those lovely leather driving gloves until spring!
Style is served!
