As the temperatures begin to get closer to the freezing mark, it can be tempting to forgo good fashion sense for comfort. You don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth. We asked one of our readers how they manage to stay stylishly snug.
Eleadah, 22, explained how she looks good while staying warm during New York City’s brutal winters. “The best advice I have for staying warm and stylish is layers. [It] seems obvious, but [it] is easily overlooked,” she explained.
“Apart from thermals,” she continues, “I layer up with sweaters and cardigans. This year I got a few outwear vests which help when you want to wear a stylish but not so warm coat. If I’m already layered down to my briefs I can get away with a jean jacket and thrown the down vest over top for extra insulation.”
Eleadah is wearing burgundy skinny pants from GAP. Her button down shirt, grey sweater, and Polo coat were all purchased from thrift shops. She designed and made her jean vest. Her shoes are Clarks Desert Boots.
