Looking chic when temperatures are colder than Mars is a lost cause, so don’t assume this works for all Chicago winter! Luckily, when our winter is more tolerable and for much of the other parts of the country, it’s fairly easy to look pulled together despite the dropping temperatures.
Despite the snow on the ground a few weeks ago, this was an unusually warm day with very little wind which makes a huge difference in Chicago. I had been waiting to wear this dress and decided to go for it! I love the boho feel – the sleeves are bell and the print is so beautiful. Since it was on the colder side I paired it with my over the knee boots so little of my skin was showing and a classic camel coat.
I have been on the hunt for the perfect camel coat for years. One that is sophisticated, has clean lines and is long enough to really keep me warm. This one is a bit of an investment, but so thick and warm and I love the belt to cinch it closed. Where have you guys found a good camel coat?
Aside from layers, which are key to staying warm and looking good I love a fedora! What is the point in fixing your hair when it’s going to be covered with a beanie or ear muffs? Fedoras add a bit of class over a beanie so is a great alternative when trying to dress your look up. This Brixton hat has been in my wardrobe for years and I love the material!
What tricks do you guys try to look put together when it’s freezing? Chicago has helped make me get creative!
