How to Look Hot When It's Cold

You don't have to resemble the abominable snowman and sacrifice your sense of style to avoid freezing this season; those overly burly coats with the unflattering waist pleats and moth bitten fur hoods do not have to be your fate. Looking hot when it's cold really comes down to layering. I am sold on layering all my distressed denim with tights or fishnets; tights are absolute heroes when it comes to keeping your gams warm in the winter. You can easily layer on a ton under anything and everything, making it possible to still wear skirts, dresses, and leggings without freezing. Another plus when layering tights, they work like Spanx, sucking in all the jiggly extras, leaving you feeling secure, slim, and toasty. Bodysuits are also a cold weather Godsend, I recently purchased a long sleeve velvet one that I wear under pretty much everything lately; turtlenecks and thermals work the same way when tucked into tights.

"I don't know what to wear, hmm, I'll just grab this faux fur animal print coat", she says, at least three times a week for the past two weeks. Thank God this coat is a piece that creates an illusion of effort, despite the lack thereof on my part. One statement making piece is all you need to look put together when you're really uh..pulled apart. The rest of the look can remain basic and just work as assistors.

Loving that first look. I'm a big fan of layering since I live in Fl I can't do big bulky coats when it gets cold because it's not quite that cold.
