How to stay Chic in a Snowstorm

The East Coast is about to get hit with snowstorm Jonas (hehehe) . We are urged to stay inside and off the roads. I say go have some fun, be a kid, throw a snowball, but be chic as well!!

The snow is going to fall and so are the temperatures. What part of your body should be the most warm? Your feet. The big trend this year is boots over the knee. If by chance you are a big kid like myself who loves to play in the snow, movement is very important. Sorel makes great fashionable snow boots. Yes, they are a bit clunky however your feet stay warm and they are waterproof.

Knit sweaters are a winter wardrobe staple. SO why not add a pair of knit leggings. I purchased a similar pair of American Eagle leggings for my sister for Christmas…. went back a week later to purchase a pair for myself. They are very warm and very light weight.

The king of HEATTECH Fleece is Uniqlo. If you don’t know who they are please do yourself a favor and look them up. They provide the basics in an array of colors for the whole family. I love this Long Sleeve Fleece Turtleneck because it comes in 10 colors. My favorite color shown is 75 Purple.

Invest in a warm winter coat that you can have for years and years to come. There are a million or maybe not a million, but a lot of brands to choose from. A very popular brand for obvious reasons is Canada Goose .

To add the cherry on top in the words of our moms “don’t forget your hat, scarf and gloves.” “Yes mom.” 3 important features about these The North Face gloves are breathability, insulation and most importantly waterproof.

Here is a 2 for 1. A scarf can be used for your neck as well as your face.  As you can see I have a theme going on..its all about fleece. The North Face Denali Thermal Scarf comes in 8 vibrant colors.

Last but not least cover your head and all your gorgeous hair. Snow is not something you want in your hair. To keep your head warm try one of these The North Face Denali Thermal Fleece hats. 8 vibrant colors to match your scarf.

Stay warm!

How to style a coat

I ABSOLUTELY love to wear color. Yes, I know I live in New York the city of all black, but when I wear color I come alive. My 2 favorite coats this season are from  Topshop and Banana Republic .

The Topshop colorful knee length faux fur is a “I am here” coat. I decided to style it with  Madewell  flare overalls, a white shirt and silver platform creepers. My 2nd favorite part of this outfit are the bobby pins from Forever 21. Instead of using just one I used all 4. I love how they are 4 different size pearls.

The Banana Republic three button citron green coat had to be styled with even more color. Of course the first option would be to style it with all black or just one other color, but why not have some fun with it! I kept the fabrication simple, the entire outfit is of silk….different shades of green. I added a touch of the color bordeaux with the tights and bag. To top off the outfit I paired it with black ankle strap platform creepers.
