The winter blues are real- with temperatures dropping it's easy for your motivation and seratonin levels to drop just as quickly!
Staying fashionable in the winter is even more difficuly... especially if you live somewhere that gets to be frigid. Finding a balance between looking good and being warm/comfortable can be hard to do. I'm one of those people who likes to dress up on a daily basis and so I've always had a vendetta towards winter ever since moving to both NYC and Chicago- where winter is a horror story! After a long time of fighting seasonal depression, dry skin, and hours of "Netflix & Chill", I realized that it was essential for me to figure out how to get through the long months of winter and still feel like my OOTD was Instagram worthy.
This is our guide to winter fashion and all of our winter fashion tips that will keep you slayin' all day but stayin' warm too!
1. Knee High + Thigh High Boots
Praise Jesus for knee / thigh highs! This season knee high boots are IN and there are so many fun patterns/colors to choose from. I've been crushing on the crushed velvet trend but you can't go wrong with a classic black boot. The best thing about tall boots is that they keep your legs super toasty! Like for real, sometimes my legs actually get TOO hot wearing both socks and thigh highs. Knee highs are like winter's version of a maxi dress- everyone thinks you dressed up but you actually put in zero effort!
