Start with a Good Foundation
Before you load up on big puffy coats, you need to start with the basics. Your mother was right: cold weather means stocking up on long underwear. There are silk or thermal options to match your personal tastes. Silk is warm, but thin enough to layer under regular jeans. Thermals are perfect underneath heavy duty winter clothes. Think skiing or hiking in extreme weather.
Leggings and tights are also a great option. Both come in a variety of fabrics, keep you warm, and give you a put together look when paired with skirts and boots. If it’s especially cold in your area, you’ll definitely want to wear multiple layers.
Get a Real Fur Coat
When it comes to a winter coat, beauty is equally as important as functionality. When the wind chill is in the low teens or even colder, it doesn’t matter how cute your coat is if it doesn’t keep your warm. On the flip side no one wants to wear an ugly coat from the fashion reject pile, no matter how warm the coat is.
For fashion and function, invest in a real fur coat this winter. Why a real fur coat? First, they provide unbelievable warmth. People have been using fur to stay warm for centuries. Fur is a natural and sustainable material. With proper maintenance, real fur can serve you for years.
You don’t want to skimp on your winter coat. No one wants to be caught trying to leave the office in the middle of a snowstorm while only wearing a thin jacket.
Embrace winter in style. All eyes will be on you when you walk into the room draped in a full length fur coat. Fur is also back in fashion like never before. Over 500 major designers from across the world bring fur to the runway. This is inspiring a whole new generation to embrace fur. What was once thought as reserved for the rich and famous is now embraced by people of all ages and backgrounds.
You can buy a real fur coat new, but you can also purchase a vintage fur if you prefer a more classic style. Genuine furs are a perfect blend of beautiful and practical winter style.
Finish with the Right Boots
If you have endured any major winter, you know you can lose body heat from any area that’s not covered. The finishing touch to your glam winter look is the accessories. Get a solid pair of boots. Depending on where you live, it can be snowy one day and messy sleet the next. Boots provide a practical way to keep your feet warm while showcasing your style.
There are many types of boots out there, but for winter, stick with snow boots or high boots. Snow boots should be your go-to-choice when it is a wintry wonderland out there. These types of boots can handle snow, sleet, or cold rain. For cold days without snow, go with a pair of knee highs with either heels or flats depending on your tastes. Layer with tights and fuzzy socks. You can even find fur boots for an extra level of coziness.
