Spring might be right around the corner, but that doesn't make it any easier to get through the cold, rainy weather ahead. Here are a few fool-proof style hacks for these last few days of winter.
You have no clue how necessary fleece-lined tights and leggings are until you have them. Then you’ll never want to take them off. And the day you forget to layer them under your work trousers? It’ll be a day that’ll live in infamy forever more. (Also these fleece-lined faux leather pants are a game changer.)
I only wish I had invented these. I could have made a fortune because these are brilliant. When you can’t wear fleece under your skinny jeans (a very real problem, fam), these are your best bet. If I’m wearing pumps, but don’t want to leave my dorky sock-ways behind (and because there is literally nothing more terrible than having freezing toes), these socks save the day every time. Keysocks sent me a pair last summer to try but I didn’t have a chance to really fall in love with them until it started getting cooler in the fall. Now I’m hooked.
Find Creative Ways to Layer
Thank GOODNESS turtlenecks are still in style because I’ve basically been layering them under everything I own. This shift dress? Thrown over a black turtleneck and my new OTK boots. Heading to work? Style it underneath the perfect long-line vest and wide-leg pants. And if you’re going for a weekend look, nothing makes me more happy than pairing a black turtleneck with light-wash mom jeans and a cozy cardigan.
Embrace the OTK Boot
It’s time to give up the predisposition that over-the-knee boots are just for Pretty Woman. These style staples will be your best friend when the temps dip because they act as a second layer. I like to pair mine over skinny jeans or with a shorter skirt, to show just a peek of skin! But when it’s really cold, I’ll wear them with my midi-skirts. Instant chic.
BONUS NON-FASHION HACK
Get a heated blanket. Forget how dorky it is and ignore the unaesthetic vibes it will most definitely give off. NONE OF THAT MATTERS because the joy is will bring you far surpasses the embarrassment you’ll feel.
