Back to Freezing Temperatures
It is back to freezing temperatures in Chicago and today it is snowing all day. Barely went out of the house this weekend. Naturally, I was able to do one of the things that makes me happy, I wore my favorite and most comfortable leggings (they’re only $12!) and its matching pullover (it has thumbholes!!). What were you guys up to this weekend?
With the temperatures back to freezing, and I don’t see it getting warmer any time soon, it can be so difficult to look chic all bundled up. I know for me, I usually look like a walking marshmallow. I have on my long puffer coat, beanie hat, heavy duty snow boots, and scarf all wrapped up around me with my eyes only peeking through. I may be warm, but it is not the cutest look.
Discovered How to Look Chic While Bundled Up For Winter
It wasn’t until we went to Quebec City that I realized there is a way to look chic while bundled up for Winter. You don’t have to sacrifice your warmth to look cute. Oh gosh, my freshmen college days just popped in my head. My friends and I thought it was so not cute to wear a coat when going out. Yes, even in freezing temperatures. That was dumb.
4 Tips to Look Chic While Bundled Up For Winter
Pom Pom Hats
Every time I see a hat with pom poms on it (especially the faux fur ones!), I just think it is the cutest thing ever. The pom pom just makes wearing hats look fun and gives it more personality. If you can find a trendy hat to keep you warm, that is a bonus! I found my exact pom pom beret in Quebec City, but I found several other places that have them too. I love how the beret is trendy, still kept me warm, and the pom pom just makes it so chic!
The look of an oversized scarf is one of my favorite winter accessories. Anything oversized can make an outfit look chic. Every time I wear an oversized scarf it easily elevates my winter outfit. Plus, the oversized style makes it sooooo warm!
A Good Winter Coat
Believe it or not, finding a winter coat that fits your body makes a difference. It just makes it look more tailored. It doesn’t have to be fitted, just has to be proportional to your body type. The coat I am wearing in this photo is a 3-in-1 parka made for the Arctic. It is heavy duty, but since it is the right size for me, it makes me look a little more put together.
Coordinate Your Hat, Scarves, and Gloves
A little coordination with your winter hat, scarf, and gloves can make all the difference with your outdoor winter outfit. You can coordinate by patterns, prints, or color. In this instance, I coordinated by color.
These are my tips on how to look chic while bundled up for Winter. Do you all have any additional tips on how stay warm without losing style?
Happy MLK day to you all!
