If there's one thing I 've learned about living in the northeast, it's how to dress warmly.
But it took me awhile to get there.
Actually, it took living in NYC ten years ago, where I had to walk everywhere in the elements, and then getting a dog that I have to walk every single day, to convince me.
Everyday I see people dressed poorly in the snowy, twenty degree weather here. They stand shivering and complaining how F***ing cold it is.
They are usually wearing some kind of a fall trench coat, or a measly denim or leather jacket with shoes that the snow soaks right through.
And I want to shout at them-- HELLO!
Are you a transplant from Florida or California? Because if not and you've lived here your whole life or the last few years, get some winter clothes on already!
All you need are weatherproof boots, a good down or wool coat and the most important thing, besides a scarf and gloves?
A good knit or wool HAT!
It's true that heat escapes through your head. So wearing a hat makes you feel ten times warmer! I don't care if it musses up your hair, put a darn hat on already!
You will rarely see me without a hat in the winter months and I've got quite a collection going.
Here are some of my favorite styles:
Just experiment with a few styles. You'll find one that flatters you. Most of mine have come from the kids department because I just happen to have a small head! :D
