Oh la la, Mother Nature has sent a chilly winter so far! We are cold weather women at MODE as we were founded in Fargo, ND! Today we have some great tips and reminders for dressing warmly when it’s bitter cold out!
- Your mom was always right, don’t forget your hat and mittens and scarf! Body heat escapes quickly from our head and our neck also holds a lot of body heat! Wrap up your neck and find a cute hat. There are many great options out there that won’t mess with your cute hair! Don’t let those hands get frozen either, get some cute mittens and grab a coffee while you are at it – we always believe that coffee helps!
- Get a coat appropriate for your climate! Unfortunately, many of the fashion coats are not made for the colder temperatures that many parts of our country see. Look for something that has a durable lining and heavy layers, or go for one of the great puffer or ski jackets that has layers to lock the heat in. Shoot for a black or brown option, this way you can always change up your look with scarves, hats and mittens to give it a new twist!
- Love your dresses, but don’t want to freeze? Add leggings or heavy tights and a pair of boots to your favorite dress. Not only will you have a new look you will be cozy warm in your new style. Want to add more warmth, layer a slip under your skirt or dress.
- Don’t be a shoe snob in the ice or snow. We mean that in the nicest way possible, but don’t be putting yourself, your feet and your toes at risk this time of year! Opt for a great pair of winter boots and put those cute shoes in a bag to wear at your final destination. Don’t be a winter extreme sport enthusiast in your stilettos on ice, a great pair of winter boots will get you much further and with less worries! We promise!
When all else fails, snuggle up in your favorite winter sweater, a great pair of jeans and a cup of delicious coffee! Let the weather do what it wants and take this time to hibernate and rejuvenate as we begin another amazing year in our world!
