Fashion Doesn’t Stop For a Snow Day

Coat: Moose Knuckles | Turtleneck: Barbara Bui | Jeans: Vintage Levi | Boots: Acne | Bag: Chloe

  • A snow day doesn’t merit staying in bed all day or always wearing a floor length puffy parka and waterproof pants. There’s tricks of the trade that can make your outfit warmer than it appears and perfect for a cold-weather snowy day. 35 degrees Fahrenheit (as it was this day) isn’t really all that cold- it sure isn’t anything compared to NYC’s -12 with wind chill on it’s coldest days, and I’m sure nothing like some of the temperatures places like Canada and Russia feel in the winter. But 35 is a walk in the park (and that’s coming from the California girl!) and a fun reason to play with your winter wardrobe.

    Coat: Obviously the most important part of your look. I’m all about the standout coat. Wearing a seemingly simple outfit- vintage jeans, a cream colored turtleneck and then making your look the top of the best dressed list with a really cool, unique coat like this multicolored fur coat from Canadian luxury outerwear brand Moose Knuckles. The coat is actually hand dyed so each one is unique. You should invest in 2 coats for the winter season. One plain black that you can wear with anything and one standout awesome coat that you can put over simple pieces.

    Jeans: Completely acceptable. We know your mom told you waterproof pants in the snow only- but lets face it you probably aren’t walking “50 miles to school like I did when I was a kid” anymore. You’re probably walking outside 2 minutes to your car, then 5 minutes into work and maybe 10 minutes on your lunch break. A few blasts of cold air is actually great for your body- hence why people are obsessed with Cryotherapy. So toughen up. Here’s a tip: don’t wear your thinnest skin tight jeggings- go for an older vintage pair with a loose fit that you can put a pair of tights or thermals under. No one knows they’re there but you. Tricky.

    Turtleneck: if you live anywhere cold you should own a turtleneck in every color. And by every color I mean every neutral, earth toned color only. We don’t need to be blinded by a hot pink turtleneck. Save the statement for your outerwear.

    Things to add: Depending on temperature theres things you easily can add to this look to make it even warmer. I’m wearing thick high socks under my boots (although you can’t see them.) Also I had a pair of black leather gloves and a black cashmere scarf in the car. I even had a beanie although I wouldn’t dare mess up my hair unless it was absolutely necessary. ;)

  2. That coat is so fab! I grew up in a Russian house so my mom would never let me leave the house without thermal leggings/tights under my pants when it was really cold haha, it is a great trick.
