Accordingly on the streets; Hanneli, Pernille and finally Céline (the blogger behind hippie hippie milkshake) showed how much we desperately need a fancy fanny pack and set our hands free for as long as we can.

Because Winter IS Cold

Because Winter IS Cold

winter street style 37

With NYFW around the corner and blizzards everywhere, people started freaking out over what to wear (or how to look nice in general when the weather literally bites) and I think as someone living in one of the coldest cities in the world I have the right to give an advice or two. Don’t get me wrong; usually I’m bundled up in my down coat, face unrecognizable under a huge scarf and beanie & sliding on ice with my warmest winter boots but at least, as uncomfortable as it is, I know how to look (as) chic (as possible) if necessary.

First things first: anything faux is your enemy. I know the moral burden of wearing real fur and leather, but if you don’t want the real thing then just go with wool, mohair wool or down coats. Faux fur, faux leather or anything plastic will just make you feel colder.

Second: keeping in mind that you have to wear several layers, choose your outer coat an oversize shape or at least buy one size bigger. How it usually goes for me is; a layer of really thin cotton sweater underneath (you can also wear thermal sweaters but they don’t help when you are overwhelmed with heat) then a cashmere, mohair or wool sweater over that, topped with a padded, felt or leather jacket. On top of all these, wear your fur, wool, shearling or what have you coat.

COATS

When it comes to boots, don’t forget that sole is the most important part of the shoe that you should be concerned about; it has to be thick. One other thing to take note of is as warm as suede keeps, it’s not the best choice if you are walking on snow since they get wet really easily. Again, only real leather would protect your feet and if possible, go for shoes with plush, fur or shearling inside.

BOOTS

There’s not much to say about accessories but to always find a way to cover your ears, especially if you wear your hair up. In extreme colds, you may consider wearing two scarves: one to shield your face, the other to cover around your neck. For the best feel, don’t hesitate to splurge and buy cashmere scarves; it’s the only thing that touches your skin all day.

ACCESSORIES

Now, I rounded up 65 of my all time favorite real winter streetstyle looks that can be perfect inspiration. There’s no need to feel depressed because you look bad or freeze your ass off as a compromise.

STAY WARM FOLKS!

Day of Inner Beauty

Day of Inner Beauty

oysho lingerie

Isn’t it ironic that we are forced to give our loved one a gift on a day that means nothing to us personally whereas all we should do is to cherish each other’s presence, not just on Valentine’s day but everyday of the year. That’s why I’ve never fallen into this consumer trap in 27 years of my life, 9 of which I was with my sweetheart, and instead stayed at home and watched some football games year after year. However I do take advantage of this day in two ways: 1) appreciate how awesome my husband is one more time and 2) buy new, nay kinky, lingerie; which honestly has nothing to do with Valentine’s day. With Fifty Shades movie in sight, I’m guessing you’ll have more motivation to do both.

Winter Sun

Winter Sun

celine spring 2015 sunglasses aIf you live in a country where in a diagram, all the arrows eventually point to the answer “winter is coming”, this next thing I’ll say is going to make so much sense to you: sunglasses are actually a winter accessory. When endless snow meets the frostbite herald sunlight, you either put on sunglasses or go blind. My husband found it a little hard to accept this fact but eventually he gave in. But how could you not, especially when there’s so many beautiful eyewear to shop for in the middle of the season?

The two must have designs? This Céline pair with the metal bridge (or get it for a fraction of a price *wink wink* here) or the RayBan rounds.
