it's cold outside

On a cold day like today, it's not easy getting dressed, especially when you have to leave the house. Without stating the obvious, dressing in freezing temps is about practicality and weather-appropriate outerwear, footwear and accessories.

The key to dressing warm (while still looking chic) is unexpected layers. I love layering coordinated outerwear, like a trench over a shearling coat, or a denim jacket under an oversized wool coat. Play with layers (blazers, knits, etc.) and bundle up! As for evening dressing, a pair of stockings or warm cashmere socks provide extra warmth, and are the answer to wearing anything but another pair of boots. And thanks to Balenciaga, puffers look extra cool with leggings and heels. The more layering, the better.
