It officially feels like fall in Chicago! It’s no secret this beautiful city can get pretty cold this time of year, and into the winter season. Since living here for many years I’ve found a few easy ways to stay stylish and comfortable in the cold weather. It’s a lot easier than you may think!
UPDATED WINTER COAT
Investing in an updated coat for the season is the first step. Coats are essential this time of year and since we wear it every day it’s worth investing in an updated option. If you haven’t updated your coat yet, I shared the best coats of the season in this post. Ever since hosting an event with Veronica Beard I’ve been crushing on this coat. The herringbone material paired with the rhinestone buttons are so chic! This coat is also compatible with all the Veronica Beard dickeys, such a unique way to make it even more versatile! I paired the coat with the hoodie dickey to add a casual-cool effect.
While it is getting cooler outside, we aren’t in the below zero temps quite yet. Sneakers are the perfect shoe to wear during this transitional weather time. Personally, I love the look of white sneakers because it gives every look an athleisure aesthetic and feels so fresh. This season I am all about an updated take on white sneakers, like this cut out version by Fenty. These sneakers were sold out everywhere but I found them on Amazon. Only a few sizes left, grab them before they sell out!
ADD A HAT + SUNNIES
Hats are extremely trendy right now, and as a bonus they are the perfect way to elevate your look. Baker boy and beret style hats are the most popular hat styles of the season. I love adding a pop of color to a look with a red beret. You can have a lot of fun with hats this time of year with different styles, colors and textures.
Sunnies aren’t just a great accessory, but they’re functional! Even in the winter, we need sunnies. They are the perfect way to complete your cold weather look. Well sunnies and, of course, a smile!
