I think I speak for every college girl in Boston when I recount this daily winter struggle:

You wake up, bundled in your blankets because outside temperatures are dropping like it’s hot — but it’s really, really not.  It’s freezing and because of that, no matter what stylish look you put together, it will all be hidden under whatever you can pile on to hold on to some sense of warmth.

Instead of giving up and throwing on sweatpants in resignation, step up your cold weather game. Here’s how to layer like a champ, take on the cold, and look like a fashionista no matter what the thermometer says.

Coats are Key

Bring on the Scarves

Bold Bottoms

Layer on Layers

These staples like chambray button ups, flannel shirts and v-neck sweaters are probably already in your closet. Throw a statement necklace on top and the look is complete.

Colored Lips
