It’s Friday! And it’s freaking cold outside. I always struggle with how to dress when it’s freezing outside because I still want to be fashionable. So here are a few things I consider before braving the cold.
Location. Am I going to a friend’s house, out to dinner, a movie or out to a bar? And wherever I’m going will there be a place for me to store my coat? Take for instance this first image. Here, I’m wearing the warmest coat I own because again, today was VERY cold. I love layering because you have options for when the temperature changes. I hate when I go in and out of different room temperatures which is why layering is key.
I wore this faux leather jacket under the above winter coat so that I had another option to stay warm. For instance, when you go to a restaurant it’s still typically cold inside but who wants to eat in a bulky jacket?
Here’s the jacket styled in a different way so that I don’t have to feel completely bundled up. I would wear this specific jacket out to a bar because I can buckle it up to stay warm when heading home.
Finally, here is the bottom layer; a cowl neck sweater from a local shop called Teri Ann’s in Marietta, Ohio about a year ago. I paired it with a statement necklace. I love using neutral tones and brightening it up with a white accent. This sweater is perfect to wear anywhere when it’s under layers because it’s cozy, yet trendy.
I took a side shot of this because I love the subtle hi-low look especially with the button-fly denim. This is a nice and simple style to go with and wear just about anywhere.
Do you have a favorite sweater? And how do you stay warm in the winter while still enjoying outdoor activities?
