Cold, wet and rainy is no way to start off a new year, unfortunately it’s pretty predictable when it comes to winter in Huntsville. While visions of spring fashion dance in your head, you live in reality where chilled breezes quickly disabuse any notions of silk, skirts and pretty pumps. As you slog through icy puddles and wonder how you’ll possibly do anything with your hair in this weather, consider a few cozy options to keep you warm and maintain your style as you brave flooded parking lots and umbrella-clogged lobbies.
A bright beanie is a great way to keep warm, particularly when the winds begin to howl through the Tennessee Valley. Use a clip to pull up top layers under the hat to avoid hat head if you can’t leave yours on all day. Make a style statement and wear it with a pair of glam earrings.
Bright footwear wakes up your look on chill, overcast days. Opt for a classic rain boot in a bright color, or if you prefer, a winter boot in rainbow hues. Wear them with your favorite skinny denim or cords or try them with fleece-lined tights.
A pretty puffer with a cinched waist is practical, warm and wearable over a variety of ensembles. Add a favorite belt and it’s an statement on its own.
Scarves and snoods are a layering must on winter days. Try one in a bright green. A harbinger of spring it’s spot-on for 2013. Check out both Shoe Fly locations for cozy winter snoods.
A cozy, oversized sweater paired with skinny pants is like the chicken soup of style, or maybe the hot and sour soup (somehow that's more appealing.) A little bit après ski sexy, this combination is super comfortable and can be very flattering.
Of all the luxuries worth indulging in when it’s cold, a pair of leather, cashmere lined gloves is by far one of the top. They can be pricey, but they’ll last you. Savvy shoppers should check the racks and TJ Maxx and Marshall's for these styles for a steal.
