I think we can all ageee this recent weather has been more than crazy. “Arctic air,” sideways rain, the threat of snow showers and random 50 degree days make it seemingly impossible to get dressed in the morning. You never know whether it’s time to bundle up or break free from those fur-trim coats.
So, I found a few ways to make it easier. Here are four tips to help you get ready in the morning when the weather doesn’t know what it wants.
Go for Layers
On days where it switches from freezing winds to spring in a Mather of hours, no one formula is going to help. Dress in layers so you can be comfortable during the walk to work and the that midday coffee run. (I’m in love with the idea of wearing a sweater under a button-down!)
Choose Boots over flats, sneakers and slip ons
Rain or shine, a mix of Heat and Snow Misers’s specialties mean you need to be prepared for everything. Something sturdier like leather over-the knee boots or booties will protect you more than those sneakers and slip-ons. Plus, it means your feet won’t get soaked while you try to avoid those ankle-deep puddles in the city.
Have Fun with Accessories
At the end of the day, you can be covered in the biggest chunky-knit sweater known to man and still pull it off if you complete the look with the right accessories. It’s all about experimenting with your wardrobe. Take it as a style challenge and mix knits with streamlined jewelry, an accent with a fun color and/or a bold purse. The contrast can show off your style as well as divert attention from the blanket wrapped around your upper half. (On that note, you can drape a scarf down over your shoulders and belt it at your waist.
Check the Weather Before you Leave and Enjoy the Moment
No matter what, the weather will always be a constant challenge to overcome with style and grace. The best thing you can do is check the weather that morning, meet it head on and have a little fun along the way.
Happy Thursday, everyone! If you liked these photos from my first-ever shoot, let me know in the comments and I’ll pass it along to my wonderful photographer/friend.
