Looking Cute When its Cold

With the sudden cold front that's hit Florida this month, I've been faced with adapting my wardrobe to below freezing temperatures! I'm sure it sounds silly to those of you who have real winters every year, but my poor little closet is running out of options!

I've come up with a few solutions to looking cute in the cold & would love some advice from all of you!

  • Dress in layers; when you get inside, you can have a fabulous outfit under your ski jacket.
  • Put leggings on underneath tights to sport your favorite pairs despite the temperatures.
  • Scarfs actually do help warm you up, and this year they've become trendy too, so there are tons of stylish options.
  • Wear jean leggings for pants that are easy to tuck into boots (J. Brand makes a great pair & theres tons of cheaper options at discount stores).
  • DRINK HOT COFFEE. that's my favorite ;)
Please leave me your suggestions for looking cute in the cold for this newbie to freeeezing weather!
xoxo, lauren

Taylor looks amazing! Yes, I love this scarves trend! Earmuffs are also pretty cute.
YES coffee!

OOh I love Taylor's look here. It is definitely a challenge to look cute while keeping warm, but her look is a perfect way to achieve this.

haha love the drinking hot coffee part too- that's a MUST!

Keep your head/ears warm! Wear a hat or mufflers or something similar. That really helps!

I know Taylor looks great in that ensemble, but lace tights would make me FREEZE during sub-zero temperatures! I wear tights under everything - under jeans, leggings, jeggings, etc. And sometimes a pair of thick socks. And then boots. :P

Layers are essential. I always end up being cold outside and hot inside - layering makes it simple to acclimate yourself to any temperature! Loving that photo of Taylor!! :)

I think a little crochet hat/beret can make all the difference! Stay warm =) xoxo

hehe, it's funny to read a floridan's take on winter dressing. leggings under tights doesn't work too well in my opinion (but maybe that's just because i have veeery thick tights because i live in the near arctic). furry earmuffs are great; wearing silk liners (undershirts, gloves) is great because silk is surprisingly warm, really thick (and cute!) high socks that go all the way up to your thighs (especially fun when worn with colourful tights and shorts. the colourbloc effect is cool), socks inside boots, dark turtlenecks and tights under summer dresses. if you're creative you can definitely make the best of the cold.

leggings under tights...genius!

Taylor looks so cute and I love the bag! I'm also a big fan of scarfs in the winter

At least with the cold you can now explore a whole new world of winter fashions ;) I like Taylor's look with the fingerless gloves, it's handy way to stay warm and dexterous!

Taylor Sterling said...

Great tips! Love this style!

LAUREN said...

invest in a stylish, warm hat! 40% of your body heat escapes from your head, you know!

Sherin said...

Great suggestions! Its been colder than usual here as well, and I had no idea how to adapt my closet!

I love Taylors outfit, winter fashion is so much funner than summer fashion. It's too hot where I am to be wearing cute coats and beanies. But I noticed one fashion thing you missed out that I love about winter is berets. A beret allways makes a winter outfit cute.

Uh, we don't have winter here but yeah, some earmuffs tucked under a cute, colorful hat may help you warm up. And lotsa hugs from people you care about! :)

Lauren said...

ahh it's been SO cold in my city. Sweater tights are a must, lots of cute sweater headbands/earwarmers, and lots of thick knit dresses + boots. i am definitely a summer girl, but there's something so wonderful about being creative in the cold!

haha drinking hot coffee is my favorite too. and lately i've been dressing in so many layers - my boyfriend makes fun of me when we're leaving to go, he's like i'll give you a headstart to start layering up again haha.

K said...

ah hats are a must! cute slouchy hats :) and scarfs. no excuse not to wrap up warm as winter accessories are so cute. but check out all of taylor's leg on display... those tights won't be keeping her very warm that's for sure.

jealous of your lack of really cold winter, it is too cold here in england :(

Taryn said...

I love this picture of Taylor, she looks both warm and stylish. great layering tips too!

Couture Cookie said...

Oh GOD, I was on the Gossip Girl set the day when this scene was shot. It was so effing cold we all thought we were going to die!

Aury said...

Taylor looks fantastic but it is WAY too cold to rock that look over here. Loving her outerwear especially. Splurging on good looking down or fleece outerwear is definitely the way to keep warm I think.

Leanne said...

Cute guide, I live in Canada so winter's are usually pretty harsh :|. I really like your blog too, I've been reading it for awhile (before I got blogger), so now I'm finally gonna follow it :). Keep it up!
