How to Look Oh-So-Chic and Stay Oh-So-Warm:

Tip #1: Scarves. Throw one on. Even if you don’t know how. Just toss it over yourself. Really. Adds instant chic while adding instant warmth. Done.

Tip #2: Long cardigans. Almost like a stylish blanket in disguise. Kinda. Wear one just once and try to tell me I’m wrong. Very cozy and very warm. Easy to add to dress pants and a button-down shirt at work, or with distressed denim and booties on the weekend. Anyone NOT want to be snuggled up in a blanket …er, long cardigan… all day long?

Tip #3: Chunky sweaters. Nope – not just for a Netflix marathon on the couch. For work, keep it monochromatic. For example, grey dress pants, a grey silk cami and chunky grey sweater. Tuck in the front tip of the sweater into your pants to let your black belt peek out. Add some grey booties. And… let the compliments begin on your street chic dressy look. You’re welcome.

Tip #4: Hats. Pom-pom or beanie hats. Just get one. Get a few. Add to cart. Promise you will look adorable/chic/charming and be insanely warm. And – keep it on while at brunch on Sunday with the girls. Oh, hello street style chic.

Tip #5: Coat. The grand finale. No skimping here. For reals. Splurge right here. Right now. No way do you want to buy anything less than the warmest coat. If you happen to be outside for longer than…oh….30 seconds, this is THE purchase you can.not.feel.guilty.about. When this cold fall brrrrrr turns overnight into crazy winter cold outside, be prepared. Frostbite is NOT stylish. Lucky for us all, there are some new coats out there that are SERIOUS about keeping you warm, while also seriously chic.
