Winter Gear That Might Make You Feel Stupid

It's a difficult time of year for fashion. We're all hopped up on New Yearsiness, ready to look fierce every day, and then we open the door in the morning and realize that it's frigging cold out there. So we pile on the layers and end up looking like hobos, crouching over trashcan fires and laden down with as many garments as possible, all in an attempt to not freeze to death. Most winter-appropriate clothing choices are sort of stupid-looking. Or that's how it feels, anyway. But if you gear up with this sweet cold-weather wear, you can survive winter without feeling stuffed or disheveled.

Pocket Knit Scarf

Good things about this scarf: 1) It’s super-long, so you can wind it around your neck until your head disappears. 2) It has pockets so that you can get some extra warmth for your hands. 3) It’s pink! Acrylic scarf, $21.95

Skhoop Short Down Skirt

If you need a little extra insulation on your lower half, you should know that down skirts are an option now, apparently. This model comes in mini, midi, or maxi. Down skirt, $159

Pocket Knit Scarf

Good things about this scarf: 1) It’s super-long, so you can wind it around your neck until your head disappears. 2) It has pockets so that you can get some extra warmth for your hands. 3) It’s pink! Acrylic scarf, $21.95

Tecnica Moon Boot

You need something to wear while tromping through snow, and unfortunately there really aren’t any sexy options. So we say just go big and get a huge ol’ pair of colorful moon boots! These remind us of wearing slippers. Moon boots, $74.99

Marc by Marc Jacobs Trompe L'oeil Gloves

When your hands get too cold, your nail polish can freeze and chip off. True story! Prevent that tragedy by wearing touch screen-friendly gloves so that you never have to take them off to fiddle with your phone. Trompe l’oeil gloves, $78

Cece Cashmere Sweater

Don’t wear more layers—wear more effective ones. Cashmere is the warmest, snuggliest thin sweater you’ll ever find, and it won’t bulk you up. This version is nice and long to prevent drafts. Cashmere turtleneck, $103.35

Patagonia Lightweight Bottoms

There is no shame in wearing a nice pair of long johns. Think of them as just a really, really, really thick pair of tights. Patagonia lightweight bottoms, $45
