What to Wear: To be Warm and Stylish

February 19, 2014

I'm starting a new series this week called "What to Wear." I've been thinking about doing this for a while, so I'm excited to see it come to life. Every Wednesday I'll style a look for various occasions in your life!

Jeans: Gap. Sweater: Old Navy. Checked button-up: Old Navy (similar). Coat: J. Crew. Scarf: Gap. Hat: Gap (similar). Boots: L.L. Bean. Socks: Wigwams. Mittens: Macy's (similar). 

For today's What to Wear I styled an outfit that is equal parts warm and stylish (yes it's possible*). Some key things to remember:

1. Layers. I'm wearing a button up, then a tank top over it (to hide the lumpiness of the button up), and then a sweater. I also wear tights or leggings under my jeans (if they're not too tight!)
2. You are not too cool for hats. Embrace them.
3. Thick socks. They keep your feet warm, and the snow out.
4. Lipstick. Such an easy way to pull an outfit together and make it look polished.
5. Scarves. They're the perfect accessory, but also wonderful to wrap around your face when the wind picks up.

*Unless it's below zero. Then all bets are off.

  1. Love it! A great intro for the series, I can't wait for the next! Thanks for the tank/button down layering tip- lumpy buttons are the worst.
