Style Guide: Baby It's Cold Outside

Call me an eager beaver, but I'm already listening to Christmas music- U2's remedition of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" is quite spectacular! For some, this festive season does have it's drawbacks. For example, it gets cold. Very cold. I'm all for comfy clothes; however,  the weather be an excuse for sporting some horrific threads. If you truly must sport a pair of leggings this holiday season, please "wow" onlookers with some amazing outerwear? Since I've taken the time to give you a style guide for winter accessories, you really have no excuse.

When in doubt, stick with neutrals: Though I'm such a sucker for the rampant collection of cherry reds and emerald greens that bombard the freshly-plowed streets, set yourself apart from the rest and wear subdued hues. Trust me, you'll look super chic. If you really feel the need to add a splash of color, add a deep lip or a colorful hat.

Texture, texture, texture: If you haven't noticed yet, winter is all about texture. Whether you sport a faux-fur jacket (in a neutral, of course) or some intricate gloves, a textured piece will add depth to your ensemble. Plus, it can be a great conversation starter.

Don't neglect your socks: Gone are the days of rocking a pair of flats without the risk of frostbite. Though you may have to tug on your trusty boots, remember that your socks should be sartorially superior as well. Eventually, you will have to take off your shoes and nothing's more of a buzz-kill than standard white socks.  My top picks? Madewell, J.Crew and Topshop.
