I'm one of those people who turns the dial to 90 degrees and calls it comfortably warm. I dream of mild California weather and cashmere sweaters that don't need to be layered over a long-sleeve tee and under a heavy duty winter coat. But alas, I chose to live in the city that never sleeps, where blizzards shut down subways and evacuate streets, but also let me work from home for a day :)
Residing in a cold climate doesn't mean sacrificing on color, comfort, and all those other things that come with the nice weather territory though. My bold red corduroys, which have faded to a raspberry tone, make the dreary winter months feel a little more cheerful. I wrapped a fuchsia and crimson infinity scarf several times around my neck, keeping my hair tucked in for extra warmth, while a stone colored wool Burberry coat, layered atop a turtleneck added even more insulation.
I'll admit I underestimated how cold my feet would get in my black loafers, so I was lucky that this was more of a cab-to-door kind of day. Otherwise, I would've worn over-the-knee boots to protect my soles.
How do you guys keep warm in the blistering wintertime? Do you still wear bright colors even during these very grey and gruesome days?
