Dressing for Winter

dressing for winterAlthough it doesn’t snow or drop below freezing too much here during the winter, it can still feel pretty cold sometimes. I’m always cold to begin with, so winter temperatures don’t really work for me. It can be hard to dress for cooler weather, especially on days that I’m working. I don’t like to wear a lot of layers or feel like I’m super bundled up like a snowman- I definitely still like being able to move around without bulky sweaters inhibiting my movements. I’ve also yet to find a pair of dress pants that I actually like, so dressing for winter for me means finding ways to transition my warmer weather clothes and dresses to the colder months.

dressing for winterI’ve built up quite a collection of cashmere sweaters to layer under my dresses. I love how light and thin they are but they still keep me warm. They are so soft and I love how they aren’t bulky. This light gray one is one of my favorites because it matches nearly everything.

They don’t look any bulkier than normal tights but they are brushed on the inside to give them a fleece lining that keeps me super warm. I have probably a dozen pairs but the best ones I’ve found are from Hue. They’re longer than most so they don’t squish my toes or slide down. Dressing for winter also means updating my shoes. Booties help add warmth while still looking professional.

A cashmere sweater and fleece-lined sweater tights layered underneath keep me nice and toasty without restricting my movements. Fun accessories like this bow belt and statement necklace help round out the look while black suede booties keep my toes warm. No dress pants needed for me!

    You look fabulous! I love your outfit. I’d go with everything cashmere if I could, but I need a loan. I’m laughing about winter weather with green leaves on the trees! Today was about 32, and fortunately, we were spared the gigantic snowfall in Boston; just got 4 inches or so. No complaints from me!

      Thanks Allison! I love cashmere but it can be pretty expensive. I browse a lot of shopping sites and as soon as I see it for a super low price, I stock up! I would love a cashmere scarf though, I’ve never seen them cheap enough. Glad you missed the big winter storm, but 32 is still way too cold for me!
