(Inspired by today’s snowstorm, I bring you a look back from the archives. Original post here.)
A huge snowstorm hit New Jersey today, and it was important to stay not only stylish, but warm and dry. So although I don’t abhor puffy jackets, having a heavy-duty coat that doesn’t turn you into the stay-puff man while still keeping you nice and toasty is crucial to have in your closet. A thicker anorak with a fur lined hood (faux fur this time!) that can be cinched at the waist is the perfect way to show off your figure, even with multiple layers underneath. I added a brown men’s belt to define my waist even further.
Waterproof boots are the next staple in your stay warm wear. Many women with big calves (including myself) have trouble finding stylish tall boots, but there is an answer to your prayer. Lace-up boots are the perfect way to keep your calves under wraps. And with the faux fur cuff, it keeps the fur theme going in the outfit.
I layered (layering is key!) a classic button down (also seen here) under a waffle-knit wide-neck sweater. Skinny black jeans will not only hide the water if you decide to make a snow angel, but will also keep your legs looking long if they’re tucked into tonal shade boots. And a knit hat is a smart choice when you have the hood off. It prevents the blinder effect that a hood creates, and keeps your hair from flying around.
