Extra Layers for People Who are Always Cold
I'm writing while wearing texting gloves because my hands were getting too cold to type and space heaters are in violation of our building's fire safety code. If you're that girl too, this season can be pretty unbearable.
So even though all of the other fashion girls are busy picking out their spring and pre-fall clothes, I'm too busy worrying about how absolutely freezing it is and how I can barely work unless properly dressed like an Arctic resident. Real talk.
Note: the pieces I've chosen below are even less girly than my usual not-at-all girly picks—but they work.
"First layer." I learned about this when I asked the Burton girls snowboard team how to not freeze your butt off on the slopes. This winter, you won't catch me running five feet to the bodega without my first layer on.
Woolrich has been around for ever, but don't overlook it. It's one of my favorite lines right now. Their original styles are way more affordable than some of the higher-end workwear-inspired lines. This denim shacket is fleece lined. The possibilities are endless.
This thing is paper thin and a must if you're that person that still wants to whip out the motorcycle jacket even when it's cold. (Sometimes you need to wear a novelty jacket instead of a bulky one though).
L.L. Bean does not want you to be cold this winter. If you go to their site, the outerwear section is divided by warmness factor, insulation type and fabric. There are a ton of options for just about any cold-weather outdoor scenario you could possibly get yourself into.
Simple, sleek-looking and warm. I love wearing vests over sweaters in the fall, but right now I put them under all of my heavyier coats.
Normally I'd stop wearing my field coats in October, but they've been carrying me through the winter because of the genius that is this wool zip-in liner.
