2) Uggs. I know, I know...Uggs were cool in the early 2000s, but I don’t wear them for fashion! On the drier, cold days, these warm boots are a must when you’re walking around outside. I wear them to work and stow my flats or heels in my bag to change into at the office so that my feet aren’t freezing outdoors. I recommend the tall ones ($195) for ultimate warmth.
3) A warm cashmere scarf. Okay, I guess it doesn’t have to be cashmere. But I really love my Burberry scarf ($395) because it’s warm, soft and goes with everything in my wardrobe. It’s an easy way to look chic even when it’s 0 degrees outside!
4) Earmuffs or an ear warmer. I am not a fan of hats because they cause hat hair and static, so I choose to wear earmuffs and ear warmers instead! I love this cute pink bow ear warmer made by local designer Salem Style ($16) - your head will stay warm while your hair looks perfect.
5) A waterproof tote bag. When it’s raining or snowing out, I leave my leather bags at home and choose to carry this Longchamp tote ($145) because it’s waterproof. This way I keep my leather bags looking great and everything I’m carrying with me stays dry!
6) Waterproof boots. You will have a bad day if it’s snowing out and you ruin your nice leather boots walking around the unplowed sidewalks of Boston. Trust me on this one. I used to avoid wearing real winter boots because I thought they looked silly on me, but there are some cuter pairs out there! Tuck your skinny jeans into these Sorel ‘Tofino’ boots ($150) to keep your feet warm and dry on those snowy days. You’ll thank me later.
7) Tech savvy gloves. You know what I hate? Waiting for the bus with cold hands because my gloves don’t let me type on my iPhone. There are so many cute gloves now that have “texting fingertips” so that you can use your phone without having a freezing cold hand. I like these cute leopard print ones ($12) from Nordstrom!
8) Rubber rain boots and liners. After a big snowfall in Boston, the sidewalks and streets are filled with nasty, dirty slush. On days like those, I wear my Hunter tall rainboots ($150) with the faux fur fleece liners ($50) inside to keep my feet warm and dry. You can go stomping through those snow piles without a care.
